    I'd like to give a big shout out and mucho thanks to @AllanMar and @enigmatheatre for getting the nodeMCU wireless mode to work with the plugin.

    To me, being able to make wireless projects and place them only needing power is just what I was wanting.

    Combined with the API sketch I am one happy camper.

    Thanks again to you both!

    Yep thats the one.

    Can anyone please test their board and see if they can reproduce this problem:

    At this time, if I disconnect the power to the board and reconnect it back on, I loose all the input capability as well as the blink function on the output and the status of the output is not updated (but I can turn the LED ON and OFF) until I do a "Disconnect"/"Reconnect" on the Device Management Page (or the plugin config page) in Homeseer. A "Reset" won't do it, though. After that, all works back again.
    Thank you

    Glad to hear it. I'm planning on putting one in my tool shed to monitor if anyone is getting in when they should not be and wanted to add a temperature sensor while I was at it.

    You do great work.

    If you want analog-io with a esp8266 though I would strongly suggest getting an external i2c ADC like ADS1115 (~$2 on ebay) as the built in one is not very good. You'd have to use the API sketch with the plugin though as there isn't support in the base sketch.
    The ESP32 is really interesting, with wifi and Bluetooth capability. It may well be an Arduino killer. And they have it running with the Arduino IDE. Maybe a ESP32 Arduino in in the works.

    @cowsr4eating,
    no problem. I'll keep an eye on the thread to check how you are doing.

    Just a note regarding my setup: at this time, if I disconnect the power to the board and reconnect it back on, I loose all the input capability as well as the blink function on the output and the status of the output is not updated (but I can turn the LED ON and OFF) until I do a "Disconnect"/"Reconnect" on the Device Management Page (or the plugin config page) in Homeseer. A "Reset" won't do it, though. After that, all works back again.

    I've sent a bug report to Greig about this.
    Can anyone please confirm if they are having the same issues?

    @luisr320

    Thank you for the info. I did not realize the signals to the ESP needed to also be 3.3V. I literally received Arduino this week, wrote a basic sketch to test the unit before my ESP8266 arrived,and I did not have any of the ESP core loaded. Not since college (many decades ago) did I program CPUs without some console for feedback, so I appreciate the patience and tips. I'll look at this over the long weekend and see if I can't get it running with the guidance you provided.

    Thanks again!

    Guy
