Title: Wireless Temperature/Humidity Sensors
Post by: Halcyon on December 21, 2018, 01:02:37 pm
I've been looking at these (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1PCS-D1-mini-Pro-16M-bytes-external-antenna-connector-ESP8266-WIFI/32803725174.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.f2264c4dwc4BM3l) sensors from Ali Express. They basically talk to an MQTT server to measure temperature and humidity.

I'm always a bit dubious buying overly cheap gear from China, particularly because I don't know exactly what the code is doing.

Can anyone see any issues with these kinds of devices or can you make recommendations? I was looking at getting a handful of these sensors and using Domoticz to do the logging/graphing.
