Hey, i didn’t find another topic that solves my problem, so I opened this one. If anyone can refer to a topic that fixes the problem please let me know.
I’m trying to connect a board called NodeMCU Lua Amica Module V2 ESP8266 ESP-12E to the cayenne dashboard. In a later state of my project I want to send some data to the dashboard, but right know I just want to make sure that the connection is working. Therefore I am using the example that comes with Cayenne-MQTT-ESP8266 library.
At the moment it looks like this:
It is exactly the same like in the example, I only updated the WiFi name, password etc…
I am able to compile the code and load it to the ESP8266 board without any errors, but then the Cayenne dashboard doesn’t find the device and I don’t know why…?
Searching for the error I already checked if the board is able to connect to the Wifi. I opened a WiFi Hotspot and saw that board was consistently connected. I also successfully checked if the board can handle any other code. The builtin LED was a sign that it does so the error has to be somewhere else.
In terms of troubleshooting I also reflashed the firmware running on the ESP 8266.
There are several other options to connect an ESP board to cayenne via WiFi and I tried a lot but somehow I don’t get it done.
Currently I’m using PlatformIO IDE, but i also uploaded the code using Arduino IDE and it’s the same problem there.
I would be really happy if anybody had another idea how to fix this.
