ESP8266 Wifi controlled Home Automation




ESP8266 is a great thing for starting to Wifi And IOT

ESP8266 Wifi controlled Home Automation




It is also cheap and be used for making cool projects connected to the Internet .Learn how to make a simple IOT Project with it .The ESP8266 WiFi Module is a self contained SOC with integrated TCP/IP protocol stack that can give any microcontroller access to your WiFi network. The ESP8266 is capable of either hosting an application or offloading all Wi-Fi networking functions from another application processor. Each ESP8266 module comes pre-programmed with an AT command set firmware, meaning, you can simply hook this up to your Arduino device and get about as much WiFi-ability as a WiFi Shield offers (and that’s just out of the box)! The ESP8266 module is an extremely cost effective board with a huge, and ever growing, community.

Update : I made a iot home control box to control home appliances

Step 1: Components and Connection

Thing we will need

ESP8266 Pinouts

Vcc -power supply 3.3 v

Gnd – Ground

RST- reset

CH-PD-Chip power Down- Connected to 3.3V

Rx-Recieve

Tx – Transmit

GPIO 0- Normal mode for HIGH Programming Mode for LOW

GPIO 2 General purpose 2

Step 2: Making the Esp 8266 Bread Board Friendly

Esp 8266 esp 1 is badly famous for being rude to the Bread board .

Here is a small hack to make it convert into a DIP pack.

You only want a 4x 4holes perf section with 4 rows of copper track of length four holes.

see the photos and you’d understand what I mean by that.

READ  Chip cleans signals clock to 111fs jitter

Cut two Strips of 4 Male Header pins each.

Cut two Strips of 4 Female Header pins each.

Push the 4-Pin Female header pins

Solder the Female Header (4-Pins each)

Push the 4 pin male all the way down until they are invisible in one side of the plastic frame.

Solder the male Header (4-Pins each) and join female together with it

Connections

Vcc and ch_pd to vcc

Gnd to gnd

Rst to button 1

GPIO0 to button 2

Note While uploading Program press reset once while holding GPIO Button as long as the program uploads
