    Hi.

    Old thread, but have the sort of the same question.

    In the Arduino Plugin (Beta) for NodeMCU, i have a choice to use pin D9 and D10, and pin D8 is missing. In all my search on the internet, I find that D8 is an usable IO. D9 and D10 is not present at the board, but I can understand that this is the TX and RX pins. The latest is not recommended used as IO, after what I can understand.

    Can You please explain why YOu have chosen to leave D8 out, and include D9 and D10?


    Kind Regards

    HI,
    I just got a sonoff switch.
    Can you tell me what port you used to connect via the arduino plugin?
    I cannot connect to it ...I tried Api mode also...

    P.S. Did you change something in the firmware or it the default one?

    They make a US version that fit the normal boxes here, I did have to modify the mount slightly since the screws they use protrude too far and hit the side of the mount.

    The D8 pin doesn't seem to be available for use, is there anyway to add that functionality?

    Also, one of the features of these boards is GPIO14 (D5) is brought out to a header for adding a temperature sensor. Ideally i would like to use a DHT temp/humidity sensor, but would accept a DS18B20.

    Are there any plans to add the onewire bus as an option for the NodeMCU board?

    I know it's probably possible to include this by using the API, but i'm not quite up to speed with Arduino IDE programming yet.

    But having pin D8 available to the NodeMCU board would be awesome, if at all possible.

    Overall using this arduino plugin with the Sonoff boards works great, very responsive, local control button works great (via an event in Homeseer) . I've also got the Sonoff Touch wall switches working the same way, also very responsive and look great on the wall!
