Here is a collection of simple ESP8266 Projects that are implemented in Electronics Hub. As we make more ESP8266 Projects, we will update this page with all the latest information.
Getting Started with ESP8266 and Arduino: ESP8266 Arduino Interface
Description: This is first project on ESP8266 which gives an introduction to ESP8266 WiFi Module and how to interface ESP8266 with Arduino and upload the code. In this project, you can get an idea about the Pin Configuration of ESP8266, the Pin Description and also the basic connections.
How to Update Flash ESP8266 Firmware – Flashing Official AT Firmware
Description: In the second ESP8266 Project, I will show you how to update or flash the AT Commands Firmware in ESP8266 WiFi Module. AT Commands are very important for ESP8266 WiFi Module as they are responsible for all the operation associated with its working.
DIY PCB for ESP8266 WiFi Module (ESP8266 Breadboard Adapter)
Description: If you observe the ESP8266 WiFi Module, especially the basic ESP-01 variant, its pins are so awkwardly given that we cannot use them on a breadboard. In this project, I will take you through the steps of designing a Breadboard adapter for ESP8266 with all its major components.
WiFi Controlled LED using ESP8266 and Arduino
Description: WiFi Controlled LED using ESP8266 and Arduino is a simple project where you can control an LED connected to Arduino over a WiFi Network. This project can be very useful in further implementation of IoT Projects using ESP8266.
How to Control ESP8266 over Internet?
Description: In this project, I will show you how to control an ESP8266 WiFi Module over the Internet. A technique called Port Forwarding can be used for this purpose. I will discuss the pros and cons of this method and also the alternative techniques.
How to Connect ESP8266 to WiFi | A Beginner’s Guide
Description: An important project with respect to the ESP8266 WiFi Module. In this project, I will take yo through all the steps required to connect the ESP8266 Module to a WiFi Network. In the process, I will also talk about the WiFi Modes of operation in the ESP8266 Module.
ESP8266 PWM Tutorial | LED Fading using ESP8266
Description: The GPIO Pins of the ESP8266 WiFi Module are capable of generating PWM Signals. Using one of the GPIO Pin and generating a PWM Signal, I will show you how to implement an LED Fading operation using ESP8266.
ESP8266 AT Commands
Description: AT Commands are very important part of the ESP8266 WiFi Module as they are responsible for almost all the operations performed by it like Restarting, Turning On/Off WiFi, Connecting to a WiFi Network, Enabling TCP/UDP Protocols etc. In this tutorial, I will explain some of the frequently used ESP8266 AT Commands.
Control a Relay using ESP8266 and Android MIT App Inventor
Description: Controlling a Relay is an important task if you can to implement a Home Automation System. In this project, I will show you how to control a relay using ESP8266 and an Android App developed using MIT App Inventor Application.
Web Controlled Servo using ESP8266
Description: Servo Motors are very important components for every hobbyist as they are used in almost all kinds of robotic project. In this project, you can understand how to control using ESP8266. The interesting thing is that the Servo Motor is controlled through a Web Page.
Control a Relay From Anywhere in the World using ESP8266
Description: The previous relay control project involved controlling a Relay using ESP8266 from the same WiFi network. Taking it a step further, in this project, I will show you how to control a relay from anywhere in the World. For this, I will be using a platform called aREST.
Connect ESP8266 to ThingSpeak
Description: ThingSpeak is an IoT Platform for data collection, analyzing and triggering. The combination of ESP8266 and ThingSpeak is very crucial if you want to implement a true IoT Application. In this project, you will get the basics of ThingSpeak Application and also how to connect ESP8266 to ThingSpeak.
DHT11 Humidity Sensor with ESP8266 and ThingSpeak
Description: When we talk about ESP8266, ThingSpeak and IoT, the first sensor that comes to mind is DHT11 Humidity and Temperature Sensor since this sensor can produce data related to two quantities. In this project, I will interface DHT11 with ESP8266, collect the data and post them on ThingSpeak.
DS18B20 Temperature Sensor with ESP8266 and ThingSpeak
Description: DS18B20 Temperature sensor is one of the important and most frequently used sensors in the DIY Community. In this project, I will show you how to interface the DS18B20 Sensor with ESP8266, extract the temperature data and update the same on ThingSpeak Application.
WiFi Controlled Robot using ESP8266 and Arduino
Description: Any form of robot is always an interesting topic for DIYers and hobbyists. WiFi Controlled Robot is a simple Robotic Application built around ESP8266 and Arduino, where the controls to the Robot i.e. forward, reverse, left turn and right turn are given from a Web Page over the WiFi network.
