    Has anybody tried using a nodeMCU as a HS3 Speaker Client?

    As of version V1.0.0.132 the plugin supports 30 Arduinos. This is as far as I have taken it as I can see many people needing 100.

    Greig would have to advise how the plugin scales. I use 3 mega boards here as I wanted the lot to be on ethernet...

    Now in saying that, it will depend on how many I/O points you require at each "location". I'm just experimenting with MQTT messaging and Michael McSharry's plugin. I've jsut got ESPeasy on a node MCU board interfacing to HS via MQTT, very easy to configure and control....this would scale with minimal load on HS very well...

    I'm not trying to hijack your method, I love the Arduino plugin and I plan to keep using it.

    This may sound extreme, but having the ability to have 10x boards may sound like a lot, but I’m building out a smart/sensored topology for a large footprint building and in actuality I could easily need 100x Arduinos to deploy and interact with.

    With the sheer density of sensoring required it is not feasible to do with 10x boards. We would have wiring going EVERYWHERE. With many many many multi-hundred foot runs to each board. Yuck. :P

    Is there a 32-bit programming/space/etc type limitation re: 10x board limit or is it something easier to workaround?

    PS the plugin is AMAZING as it sits already!!!!

    Would like to get HS3 date & time to Arduino via Ethernet.

    nodeMCU

    It would be pure dead brilliant to have the lonely analog input and one-wire interface working on the nodeMCU's. Thanks

    DHT22 support?

    Hi Greig,
    Any chance you could add support for DHT22 temp sensors without having to use the API?
    I plan to put temp/humidity sensors throughout my home and I'm keen to keep all components as stock standard as possible. I'll have many arduino boards and want to avoid having a different sketch for each one.
    Thanks!
    (Also very open to other suggestions for the simplest way to put wired humidity and temp sensors everywhere.)

    So you want to control 6 blinds from one nodeMCU. Have you considered an architecture that puts a nodeMCU at each blind using wifi connectivity? Just on the surface, that seems like what I would design.
    I am for the rest of the house, but in my office that use to be sun room i have 6 windows that i can get servo wire run and hidden to one corner to a single nodemcu on my desk.

    I have it working with one nodemcu using wemos via Alexa and voice commands, but i wanted it to go thru Homeseer so I can use rules, timed events as well as temp, photo sensors from Homeseer via your plugin on a arduino and still use Alexa to open and close on command.

    Well, I don't think that's fair....

    I am not asking you to fix anything, I thought that you wanted to use a servo with the NodeMCU and this is not yet supported by the plugin so the API is the only way for you to go.
    I have just looked through the forum and see you say you can not get a servo to work on the mega ether so this is a problem that I need to look at as I have not used a servo with the plugin for a long time but I know some other users do. I do not have my test system up at the moment but as soon as I do I will look at the servo code for you.

    You can do this with the API if you want to. Should be quite easy to set up on it.

    I just automated some motorised blinds I have. I ripped apart the remote control and wired an 8 relay board to simulate button pressing. I can now raise and lower the blinds depending on events.....works magic :-)
