by EasyIoT @ instructables.com:

In this tutorial we will show how to build WiFi controlled thermostat with ESP8266, Arduino and touch screen display. Thermostat will also show other info, like weather forecast and temperature outside. Total cost for thermostat is about 40EUR, which is price for basic commercial thermostat in shop.

Basic features:

6 modes – Auto, Off, LOLO, LO, HI, HIHI
Touch screen
WiFi connected
Four set temperatures (LOLO, LO, HI, HIHI) and weekly schedule
Time display
Additional data display – temperature in other room, air pressure and weather forecast

FirstOverview

We can control almost everything from our smartphone, tablet or smart watch these days, and thanks to the CleverLight™ Wi-Fi LED bulb, you can now control your lighting remotely without additional box.

We are pleased to announce that we have launched a new and unique product CleverLight™ Wi-Fi LED bulb.

Installation is as simple as removing your old bulb and installing CleverLight™ Wi-Fi LED bulb. Wall switch retains functionality.

In comparison to an incandescent bulb which lasts approximately 1,000 hours, CleverLight™ Wi-Fi LED bulb last at least 25,000 hours apiece at an estimated lifetime more than 20 years. With our LED technology 85 percent less power is needed than incandescent bulbs. CleverLight™ using up to 9 watts compared to a 60 watt incandescent bulb. Be smart with your energy.

To create the best user experience possible, we use Smart Config™ — a one-step and one-time process used to connect the CleverLight™ to a Wi-Fi network.
Just connect your Wi-Fi enabled phone or tablet to your access point, then enter your network’s password into the CleverLight™ App, and the setup process completes in less than thirty seconds.

solar_charger

The NEW Solar BMS charger for LiFePO4 or any other Li-ion battery and used for OffGrid House, RV or boats, with wireless datalogging.

 Solar BMS (Solar Battery Management System)is a solar charge controller designed to replace the Lead Acid solar charge controllers most people use today in Offgrid, RV, Boats and multiple other applications with 12V and 24V systems. Solar BMS can be used with 3 up to 8 Lithium cells (any type) or supercapacitors. The new SBMS100 will have multiple improvements over the first generation SBMS4080 see further for details.

In this project you’re going to create a simple HTTP client with an ESP8266 WiFi module. Having your ESP8266 connected to your network, it requests the current Bitcoin price. This is an example on how to retrieve data from the web.

First, flash your ESP8266 module with NodeMCU

NodeMCU is a firmware that allows you to program the ESP8266 modules with LUA script. And you’ll find it very similar to the way you program your Arduino. With just a few lines of code you can establish a WiFi connection, control the ESP8266 GPIOs, turning your ESP8266 into a web server and a lot more.

The WiFi SSR board project changed a bit and I use classical relays instead of SSRs now. The reason is that SSRs tend to get quite hot when switching larger loads, and the 8A relays I last used actually could be used for max 2.5A load switching with no heat sink. The high quality relays I now use allow 10A load switching and are rather quiet. I also changed the design a bit so that it would fit in a box (DIN rail compatible) for increased safety.

In the past few months ESP8266 has created a real revolution in the IoT space. I’m using it in a project that will hit Indiegogo in a month or so and you, of course will support me ☺ During the development process I’ve learned a lot and I want to share a part of it. Let’s build cheap open WiFi finder together!

Onion is launching the Omega, a hardware development board designed for software hackers (especially Web) with limited experience in hardware development. It is a tiny computer (1/5 the size of the raspberry pi) with built-in WiFi and Linux. The Omega allows software developers create hardware projects in familiar environments (ssh, git and npm) and using high-level programming languages they are used to, such as Python, Node.JS, PHP, etc. More importantly, the Omega is fully integrated into the Onion cloud service, allowing hackers to prototype IoT applications very quickly.

If you want to learn more about the ESP8266 module, first read my Getting Started Guide for the ESP8266 WiFi Module. In this project you’ll create a standalone web server with an ESP8266 that can toggle two LEDs.

Why flashing your ESP8266 module with NodeMCU?

NodeMCU is a firmware that allows you to program the ESP8266 modules with LUA script. And you’ll find it very similar to the way you program your Arduino. With just a few lines of code you can establish a WiFi connection, control the ESP8266 GPIOs, turning your ESP8266 into a web server and a lot more.

I recently wrote a 15-page getting started guide for the $5 ESP8266 WiFi modules for Kiwicon 8, a local New Zealand hacker con. It’s available as both HTML and a PDF.

It provides details on: how to make the hardware connections using an FTDI Board or Arduino (with suitable disclaimer); how to communicate with the module; using AT commands to act as a client, server or AP; and, updating the firmware.

The con brought in a shipment of 100 of the modules which sold out extremely quickly and the guide provides a one-stop-shop for how to get started with the modules.

Markus Gritsch shared his WiFi LED light project in the dangerousprototypes forum:

I built a prototype for a WiFi controllable LED light, using the popular ESP8266 module running the NodeMCU firmware [1]. To allow controlling the WS2812B LEDs from Lua, I extended the firmware with a bit of C code
