where are the code and circuits?

Oh yeah, definitely. I'd like to transition my in-home nodes to ESP8266 actually. It natively supports MQTT, so you can just subscribe/publish directly to OpenHAB. The ESP8266 makes it super easy. You're limited to the range of wifi, but that's ok for a lot of use cases.
Eric - that's super news! Since I haven't started implementing OpenHAB based home automation yet, what I'm wondering is how the communications would work? In your original project, you have the sensor node Arduino communicating with the Wireless gateway Arduino via RF. If the sensor node is an ESP8266 connected to your home WiFi, would the Gateway Arduino (or ESP8266) be connected to the same WiFi network and then automatically receive the MQTT messages? I guess the software on both the Node and the Gateway would have to rewritten?
If there's a more convenient way to ask questions (email?) than via this comment forum, just let me know. Thanks for your help.
