Poke action

A project log for ESP8266 Remote Control

ESP8266 enclosure. Listen for button press -> send http request.

Since the box is fully enclosed (and under a table in my case) you can't easily see the power indicator LED on the esp. This makes it easy to forget that the controller is turned on when not in use which wastes some of the magic pixies in the battery. To solve this problem I've added an idle countdown that starts sending "poke" requests until you either reset it by pushing a button or shut it off.
