First run of new nodeMCU based GatewaySerial. Not sure what it is saying.



  • Arduino IDE ver 1.8.2
    MySensors ver 2.1.1
    Board nodeMCU 8266 12E

    I've just been able to compile the GatewaySerial example and load it onto a nodeMCU. It is running but I really don't know how to interpret the serial monitor output.

    Here is what I see. What is it trying to tell me?

  • The nodeMCU has integrated wifi. No wiring required.

    The info you provided will be useful since I have a UNO and a Nano that both need wifi added. I have several 8266 wifi boards that I was planning to use for that.

    Other ideas?

    The correct way to use any ESP8266 based boards with the current MySensors implementation is to configure them as WiFi Gateways with local sensors. You cannot make one ESP8266 an serial GW and expect all other ESPs to communicate via this one using the WiFi.

    I other words all your ESPs will be Gateways but without any transport (NRF24L01 or RFM69 that is currently supported).
