Introduction

The ESP module can read a basic switch to send a state or dimmer value to your controller.

The input switch needs to be connected to a configurable GPIO on the ESP module.

Hardware

Connext a switch between ground and the GPIO pin.

Enter the IDX found in the Domoticz device page. Also select the GPIO pin that you have used to connect the switch device. That should be all for a default switch.


Other settings:

You can also select between Switch and Dimmer. If you want the ESP Easy to set a fixed dimmer value to the controller, select Dimmer on this dropdown:

Instead of a conventional state or latching push button, you could also use a momentary push button switch. In this case the ESP Easy will toggle between on/off.
