So i bought a NodeMCU board and a lux sensor to do a project. I bought 2-packs of each just because and now I am going a different direction with project so I don't even need to first. I am looking for some ideas for using the NodeMCU board and lux sensor but don't necessarily need to use the lux sensors. I have read thru the threads but not seen something that serves a needed purpose in my home. What are some creative things you guys are doing with NodeMCU boards or with a lux sensor on a NodeMCU board? I have already flashed the first NodeMCU board with Tasmota. If it helps with ideas, i am married with 2 kids under 3.
Well, if you have Tasmota on the board, you are going to be limited to switches, since that's pretty much what Tasmota does. You don't mention you have a relay device but if you wanted to use the NodeMCU like a switch, you're going to need a relay.
I would take a look at this thread if you're looking or idea on what folks have done with Arduinos.
Thanks guys. Looks like I need to add "Learning Arduino" to my skill set. It's a good time to do it while confined at home. Right now, I just have a lux sensor attached to 1st one and I could always just add more sensors to it. I also have a 2nd NodeMCU board that I haven't touched yet.
