We have a bunch of remote controlled power sockets at the space, and wanted to control them via our space automation tools.

Building

Hardware

We used a WeMos D1 mini board for the ESP8266. It's powered over USB, and provides 5V to the RF module. The Data pin of the module is connected to GPIO 4 (Pin D2), and works just fine with the 3.3V of that pin.

Software

Usage

Send the following to the MQTT topic defined in config.h, e.g.mumalab/room/rcsockets:

type,house_code,device_code,action

with the options
