    I would delete
    /Users/fsolanes/Documents/Arduino/libraries/ESP8266WiFi

    And put the patch file in /Users/fsolanes/Library/Arduino15/packages/esp8266/hardware/esp8266/2.2.0/libraries/ESP8266WiFi/src/include/ overwriting the original as mentioned above.

      WOW! that worked..funny that it said it was taking the file from the other place but yet that did it!!!
      Thank you for being so patient...
      Now it works, i will leave it up and running to see how stable it is. But Temperature and Humidity are visible on HomeSeer

        For Those looking to get a cheap and easy H/T Wifi Sensor, here is a picture of mine.
        Thank you Allan for all your Help and Thank you Greig for the Plugin

          No problem.

          You may want to check these out for an even more compact setup:

            FYI, a new beta version of the ESP8266 libs have been posted.
            https://github.com/esp8266/Arduino/r.../tag/2.3.0-rc1

            If you use the following beta (staging) boards manager URL you won't have to make the patch mentioned above:

              Thanks Allan

              Will give that a go when I make it home next week. Are you finding the orders from China slow ? I've had 3 units now fail to turn up and gotten my money back...

                A question: but what can I do with this ESP8266?
                Ok, I upload the sketch and it become an more powerful arduino (more memory, faster cpu, etc.)
                Then, I think that I can use it wireless... but with arduino plugin, I can se the module as connected by lan?

                Sorry for my stupidity, but I'd like know the capabilities of this product.

                (now I'm working and tesitng nrf24l01...)

                Thanks

                  The esp8266 is a cheap, powerful WiFi arduino so you can use it for anything you want to use an arduino for.
                  This sketch lets you use it with the arduino plugin like you would an arduino with Ethernet shield.

                  The nrf24 require an arduino or something on both ends but are better for battery consumption.

                    I ordered 2 pcs. I'd like to test this board with your sketch.
                    I'll start with a on/off led.

                    Thank you

                      It flashes the onboard LED very well :-) I had it on the bench turning the led on/off every 2 seconds for 2 weeks....

                      Enjoy !

                        Petez, a flashing long run test is it for your Disco Party room?

                        I need some info:

                        -I have read the sketch, but where can I find the association pin/connection?
                        -The sketch I the "standard" mode, so I can select IN and OUT from HS plugin, correct?

                        But I think that I could use ESP in API mode, obviously with proper API sketch, correct?

                        I bought the V3 version (the only available).

                          I think its pin 2 for the onboard blue led. Select this as an output in the Arduino plugin....you should then be able to toggle the led from the device management page.

                          Just checked, yes its PIN 2...

                          As for the other pins, I need to go test it myself and see what works. Note Allan has defined 1 PWM pin, you will need to go through his sketch to see the definition, I cant recall the pin.

                          Trial and error, you cant break it too much :-)

                            Guys,
                            I am thinking of utilizing the ESP to run a 12v solenoid valve, flow meter, moisture sensor, and a temperature sensor. Is this possible off of one adafruit ESP? It would be powered through the usb and the solenoid would be connect this way http://www.bc-robotics.com/tutorials...-with-arduino/


                            Thanks for the help

                              Should be. Just keep in mind the ESP8266 has no 9V power like Arduino does, and the inputs/outputs are 3.3V not 5V like arduino, so you'll have to adjust your circuitry accordingly.

                                Just found this project https://github.com/happy-bubbles/nfc
                                Does almost what I want just not sure how to receive the http post into homeseer. Maybe someone can adapt it?
