LaundrEsp - From prototype to something more permanent.

A project log for LaundrEsp

Using Thinger.io and an ESP-12e with a LDR, we are notified when the washing machine has stopped.

I keep getting text messages from my wife that the laundry notifications are working great. She is really finding it helpful. With it going well I decided to take a stab at making it more permanent.

I've never designed a PCB so I took a few hours the other night to try and learn how to use Eagle. This is what I came up with.

I ordered 3 of them from Oshpark and they should be here maybe next week. Here's hoping I did ok. If not, I won't mind taking another stab at it.

At the end of the day this probably isn't any cheaper than say using a Wemos D1 Mini from AliExpress, but it's a fun exercise in learning, and that's what I'm here to do.
