Hello Cayenne Community!
I have a small project in mind involving 3 temp/hum sensors (DHT22), a barometric one, and 5 relay outputs that should control some heating devices/boilers.
Since I am relatively new to this (have done some flashing before for my hexacopter and also I am comfortable with soldering and electronics in general), there are some questions I wanna ask you, so here’s some details.
The configuration I set my mind to was something like this:
• Arduino UNO
• ESP8266 WiFi module (haven’t decided on the exact version, I would go with the shield but I can’t find any Cayenne supported shield available in Romania)
• 3 x DHT22
• Barometric sensor (haven’t decided on one yet)
• 5 x relay Module
• Real time cock Module
• 2004 LCD with I2C interface
Now, I know Cayenne does not support LCDs yet, but was wondering if (and this is a must for the project) I can combine the Cayenne code with some stand-alone code to get the temperature/humidity/pressure & time to get displayed on the LCD. The thing is I’m not that great at programming and I don’t know if this is possible with a fairly low knowledge of this. I also have a deadline for this project since it should be a Christmas present for my parents
I also know that the WiFi ESP module is not officially supported, but there are some workarounds posted here – hopefully I won’t get in trouble there.
Please leave some comments on this to advise me about ways I can get this to work.
