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 ...

The original project used Bluetooth for display data transfer from a smartphone, but this one now uses Wifi. The display message is sent through web browser to a ESP8266 module that is configured as a web-server. No Ardui ...

I still have all of my regular smoke detectors installed and I don't suggest relying only on this, but rather as an extra layer of protection. If I had a house I would install a proper fire alarm system that calls the fire department, but I live in a small apart ...
