Disable Wifi status LED

Postby rupak426 » Thu Jun 09, 2016 3:16 am

Hi,

I want to disable Wi-Fi status LED (red LED) & blinking Blue LED from ESP-8266-01 to save power consumption. I found function "wifi_status_led_uninstall" in the SDK docs, which says that, it uninstalls Wi-Fi status LED. But not sure how to use it.
can you guys help me here?

thanks,
Rupak

You just call void wifi_status_led_uninstall(), it should work

Hi,

My question is related to RED LED on the esp-8266-01, which as per me is showing the status of power.

wifi_status_led_uninstall() will disable gpio port not the red led.

Thanks

Yes, I'm not familiar with the LED installed for ESP-01. I think you can use PWM to register a signal LED. It will be easy to control.

Hi,

I'm working on a project where I need to use the GPIO2 (WiFi Status Led) for another purpose (Chip Select line; all other pins are used).
How can I disable the Wifi Status Led function.
Right now both (my sketch in Arduino and ESP WiFi functions) try to use this pin and of course my device on this Chip Select line doesn't respond at all, however everything works fine without WiFi functions.

I tried to call this in setup: " wifi_status_led_uninstall(); " after including "#include <user_interface.h>"
but it gives me an error message: " undefined reference to `wifi_status_led_uninstall()' "

Thank you for your help!

Solved!
The problem was in a custom library, which used GPIO2 for Wifi status.
Thanks.
