Re: Controlling a soil moisture sensor

Yeah, but this is what I have lying around, so I'm going to work with it.

Controlling a soil moisture sensor

I working with an ESP-01S with the intent of creating (many) houseplant monitors. The ESP-01S will connect to one of those fairly ordinary soil moisture sensors (unfortunately the resistive types for now, corrosion issues notwithstanding), including the ADC-potentiometer board in between the sensor ...

Re: Dump data to Mac fileshare or to Google drive?

Thanks. I like your idea of first handing things off to a local Mac and then dealing with further transmissions from there. I'll still have to create and run some sort of socket server on the Mac I suppose, but I can dispose of all the authentication complexities and just write a straightforward dat...

Dump data to Mac fileshare or to Google drive?

I can REPL to my ESP-01S via USB and I can get the basic MicroPython network routines going. I can connect to my home wifi and successfully replicate the Star Wars ASCII demo from the docs. That all went swimmingly. What I would like to do is use the ESP8266 (or ESP32, I have both available) to gath...

Re: Comparison of the three Pyboard D models?

Between the release of the PyBoard D and the OpenMV H7, it's looking up to be a pretty remarkable spring for MicroPython projects. I'll have to decide what I want to do.

Re: Comparison of the three Pyboard D models?

Okay, that's interesting (that the top-level D board actually lacks a feature of the second-level board, so that there is a "decision" to make on such matters, as opposed to each next level simply subsuming the lower levels).

Thanks.

Comparison of the three Pyboard D models?

I see on the store pages basic descriptions of the boards, and by flipping back and forth between the tabs, I can see the differences "jump out" as visually as text differences, but I think there differences should be summarized in side-by-side table form somewhere. Just my two cents. Aside from tha...

Re: OpenMV M7?

If you don't mind my asking, and I really don't mean to come across contrarian, but if OpenMV is essentially "a PyBoard with a faster proc, more RAM, oh and also a camera and a bunch of compiled opencv image processing routines" , then (and I reiterate, I don't mean any disrespect to PyBoard) what i...
