Hi there I am new to this forum and I just discovered MySenors and what seems to be amazing endless possibilities very easily accessible!
I apologize if there is already the answer to my question in the forum, I looked but did not find any topics on my particular questions. If I missed it please point me in the right direction.
Here is what I am trying to do:
- offline (no connection to the internet)
- I would like to use a esp8266 as a gateway to talk to arduino node with nrf24l01 (both the arduino nodes and the esp8266 gateway would have nrf24l01 attached)
- I would like to be able to connect to the esp8266 in softap mode using my smart phone as GUI (using a browser or a specific app).
So my understanding is that the controller would be hosted on the esp8266. Is that even possible? Or could the controller be on the smartphone and use the esp8266 wifi as a bridge only?
I guess it is easy with a rPi but I am trying to find a solution with a ESP8266 because of the cost difference.
Many thanks in advance for your answers!
