ESP8266 16MB Flash Handling

In recent weeks a number of ESP8266 devices have become available offering more than the previous defacto maximum of 4MB of flash memory. Wemos’s D1 mini pro offers 16MB of flash, and the ESP-100 claims to offer 8MB. To put this in context, the original ESP8266 modules (such as the ESP-01) offered 512KB of flash, with the more recent ones (ESP-07) 1MB and then 4MB. The maximum addressable flash memory of th ...

ESP8266 GMail sender

Hello and welcome to my first Instructable. I will show you how to send emails from any ESP8266 wifi module using Gmail server. This instructable relies on Arduino core for ESP8266 WiFi chip, which makes a self-contained microcontroller from it (no need of AT commands and master devices). You can connect sensors and get notified by email about changes. Before we begin Required hardware: Any ESP8266 (I'm usi ...

Internet-of-Things Power Meter

Description The Internet-of-Things Power Meter (IPM) is a device fixed on top of the regular household power meter that provides detailed information about the electricity usage. Modern power meters have a LED blinking every time a watt-hour is used, the IPM detects these flashes using a light sensor, counts them, saves the values to an SD card. Later the data is stored to the cloud. Usually power companies ...

OH HAI! on Windows 10 IoT Core

Story Oh, Hai Hai ('hi') is an integration point for several stand alone smart home technologies.  Hai runs on the Raspberry Pi and can be adapted to optimize electricity consumption (lighting/HVAC) and water usage (irrigation/rain collection) in a number of ways. Hai was originally envisioned for any Pi running Raspbian OS, but is also being ported over to utilize the new Windows IoT Core on a Raspberry Pi ...

Week 11: Networking with ESP8266

For this week I set out to make a board that will show realtime MBTA bus arrival times using the ESP8266 wifi module and a LCD. Seemed doable. People of the internet have been excited about the ESP8266 lately. Here is a snapshot of google trends for searches for esp8266 vs couple of other arduino favorite processors. That's the rough plan. I run the atmega32u4 and the LCD at 5V. The ESP8266 I power at 3.3V ...
