multi sensors connecting to AP

Postby skywalker7861 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 12:12 pm


I am really interested in mesh configuration, but here is the problem I am trying to solve

- i have a few (maybe 8) sensor nodes (each esp8266+add on sensors) all need atleast 100kbps of data transfer
- a host application running on a PC or MAC needs to be setup as AP and receive the data streamed from the sensor nodes
- I am interested in using the built-in wifi on the PC or MAC and not another esp8266 receiver

can you help with how to set this up

You can set up local server such as XAMPP on your computer. Then the slaves may connect to the same router that your computer is connected to... then interaction may go on directly with your laptop. No ESP is needed at the receiving end then.

I was hoping to do the same but then without the hall sensors..... Probably not going to work. I have the hardware ready but no time to test.
