ESP8266 Fun

Various fun and experiments using the #esp8266

Read more...This project has been kicking around for years.   Several years ago I set up an 8 zone lawn sprinkler system.  You know those 24vac controlled valves and sprinklers and stuff.   ESPrinkler has been upgraded to ESPrinkler2.   It is still a DIY project, not for the feint of heart, but still a fun project.  

ESPrinkler2 has its own home on GitHub https://github.com/n0bel/ESPrinkler2 It even got a couple of stars, without it even being finished.  Its page has been updated on https://hackaday.io/project/6212-wifi-lawngarden-sprinkler-controller-esp8266 as well.



Spring has sprung and watering will be needed.   Plus I planted some grass where I removed the pool and the gazebo.  While I was out of my house (because of a house fire last year), I rebuilt my sprinkler controller based on the ESP8266 plus a shift register and some relay drivers.   Some details are here.. https://hackaday.io/project/6212-wifi-lawngarden-sprinkler-controller-esp8266 I have a bunch of documenting to do yet...  The code is here: https://github.com/n0bel/ESPrinkler

As you can see, my distribution system is dead simple, garden hoses and valves.
