Week 2 Challenge: ESP8266 as IoT node
THE TOPIC: The wonderful new ESP8266 (withits very active and giving community ), is a very viable Internet-of-Things (IoT) helper. In this challenge, we’ll develop instructions for turning this board into a platform for IoT prototyping.
THE CHALLENGE: This week’s challenge is to great a set of instructions and a 1-minute-or-less demonstration video that shows how you can use a a wireless ESP8266 node. Our test case will be to create a network of 3 or more ESP8266, each connected to a sensor (analog or I2C) that can sense human activity around it, and report this activity to a server located in a different place. A completed challenge will include:
