It’s been a few months since I’ve finished my MusiCubes Controller. And although most of the controller works perfect, there is one issue that is still bugging me: the false positives of the touch sensors. Time to fix this!
A little over 2 years ago I worked on a project in which I connected my alarm’s sensors to the web using my first Raspberry Pi. And while it still didn’t help me to lower the crime rate in my peaceful village, it turned out to be a very handy toy. Unfortunately, the system had some minor flaws, so it’s time to work on an improved solution.
After I discovered the awesome little ESP8266 Wifi module last week, I spent some extra time to check out how suitable this module is when I want to use it in an ‘Internet of Things’ environment. Or, to be more concrete: Could I use this module to connect my Annoying Dishwasher directly to the internet, without the use of the XBee & Raspbery system?
