Connect esp nodes to ethernet gateway
I have a mysensors ethernet gateway with nrf24. Now all my nodes communicate with it via nrf24.
I think that i would like to use some esp sensor nodes.
how can i connect these new esp nodes to this same gateway over wifi?
@Tommas you can't. Each esp would be its own gateway.
Actually you can connect the ESP to your ethernet GW but then you also need to attach a nrf24 to your ESP and treat it as a normal node. Here is an example.
Thank for all!
Can i use the ESP node over wifi without controller? Can i register these to openhab2?
@Tommas could you rephrase your question? openhab is a controller so I' not sure what you are asking.
Can I control/monitor the esp based sensors (which are connected to my AP, same network as openhab server) with openhab2 without any GATEWAY?
Dear @mfalkvidd !
Is it under understandable?
Have a good day!
If you want to use the MySensors library and connect each ESP directly to your controller you will have to use the Gateway code with local sensors on all of your ESPs. Then you do not need any NRF24 radios. Check that your controller is capable to handle multiple MySensors Gateways.
So if i would like to use gateway for esp nodes i have to create an only esp gateway?
If you wan to run all nodes throug one gateway you need NRF24 on all of your devices. Both gateway and sensor nodes. But you only use the Gateway code on the Gateway and sensor code on the rest of them and only the Gateway needs a connection to your WiFi.
