Esp8266 setup mode feature

Post by lazarvgd » Mon Apr 01, 2019 11:41 am

Hi,

I am thinking about creating small device with a few sensors that can connect to wifi network and send data over the mqtt protocol.
The problem is that I do not know how to allow feature on esp that has ability of initial setup, so user can configure with smart phone, wifi network that controller will be connected to and an ip address of mqtt server. And every time when user presses, for example flash button, it will set esp in configuration state and after reboot it will connect to predefined wifi network and send the data to mqtt server.

This is very high overview of functionality, but I don't know how and where to start, is it even possible to make it with micropython?

Thanks,
Lazar
