ESP32 Home Monitor/Logger


#1

I have been a long time Arduino and industrial controller programmer, but have done little with respect to WiFi and the IoT aspect.
This is my first project with an ESP32 and monitors a single place in my home.
I have made it portable, so its long term data may change characteristics as I try it in many places.

The project consists of;
ESP32 DEVKIT V1
DHT11,Temperature and Humdiity Sensor.
LDR, uncalibrated, 0 to 3.3V.

I have a question, is there a facility that will allow control from the dashboard to the ESP32 to control remote devices, such as lights?

Thanks … Tom…

Yes. You add button widget to your dashboard which controls the relay connected to your esp.

Hi, thanks for the advice, got it working, just refining my ESP32 code.

Another question, is there a way to make this desktop project able to be access by all, rather than just me?
Or can you make it accessible to particular users.

I am aiming to present this developing home project to my company/boss to acquire a licence so we can use it in some foreseeable projects we are developing.

create a new project on you dashboard, add the device widget you want to share to this dashboard and share the link with users.
