    I have now some new choices:

    - Find out how to call a https page with the ESP8862

    - Find a way to tell my webserver to call the https Page for me (until now no luck)

    - Create an Android App and an Webapp using FireBase and VS Studio 2015

    - - Find a way to teach the ESP8862 XMPP Protocoll or find a way to translate it to.

    - Just give up

  • First almost useful ESP8266 Testapplication

    Greatly Inspired by #ESP8266 Retro Browser I have rewritten my sketch a bit :)

  • Hello ESP8266

    Stefan-Xp11/21/2016 at 22:15 11 comments

    Today i got first contacts between ESP8266 and Arduino Uno.

    One Major drawback is, that the tx/rx is occupied by the ESP8266.

    So once you can't really see whats going on and second you can't flash the Arduino when connected.

    I added the EA DOG Shield to my Arduino to get some Response from the communication.

    But viewed from now it is still some way to go.

    I wonder if it is normal, that the ESP8266 gets hot.... i used the Schematic like from the ESP Breakoutboard.

    BTW: Don't connect USB+ and Voltages > 5V together... PC did't like it (Rebootet) but i hope no further damage is happened.

  • ESP8266 and Arduino Uno still don't want to play

    As begun with https://hackaday.io/project/2746-furious-tooth-fairy-door-unlock/log/49242-time-for-a-update/discussion-69901

    I still have some plans for this project.

    • Get the Data of the alarm message from the dme. [done with Software Serial and a small circuit]
    • Set up the ESP
      • Connect via FTDI 3.3V Cable ==> works
      • Connect to Arduino UNO TX and RX ==> Do i need to switch RX and TX when using the Terminal versus when using the Uno?
      • Connect to Software Serial ==> Don't work properly .. Echo works, Responses get scrambled.. See below code (Mostly from Example) [1]
      • Tell the ESP to call a specific Website with specific received data (not begun)
    • #include <SoftwareSerial.h>
      SoftwareSerial mySerial(10, 11); // RX, TX
      void setup()  
        // Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
        while (!Serial) {
          ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for Leonardo only
        Serial.println("Goodnight moon!");
        // set the data rate for the SoftwareSerial port
      void loop() // run over and over
        if (mySerial.available())
        if (Serial.available())
    • Hmm.. maybe tomorrow i get some enlightment.

  • The 7x5 Dot Matrix LED Prototype...

    So it's time to give away my prototype (I need more space) It goes to a good friend.

    So you get the Pictures of the Prototype of https://hackaday.io/project/3099/log/14142-the-7x5-dot-matrix-display

    It is a 4 Layer PCB ;-) ...

  • Well well ;-)

    It looks like the Alarmierungsuhr is going to get a little Sister.

    I take some of the left over PCBs and build a Clock with will go into family with my FB 7S Clock :-)

    Nice Paint Job isn't it? ;)

  • Already well done :-D

    I have to admit, that i almost finished the project before starting this HAD-Project ;-)

    Please enjoy my Video:

    Step by Step I will add a few more informations.
