After a few weeks of playing with them I finally have something worth writing about!
For the 07 nothing much more than I finally made a breakout board, as you can see here:
Its raised on a random SMD electro cap, and connected to the perfbpard with zero ohm resistors.
(The cap has only one purpose, raise the module)
As for the 01,
I rewired the serial lines up to pins 10 & 11, for software serial, then using the EasyIoT library have it connected to the Easy IoT server running on a raspberry pi elsewhere in the house!
At the moment it’s got a relay, but when I get some more sensors and modules I’ll make a while bunch of things. Need some of those temperature and humidity combo sensors, and some of that 2.4ghz rf transceivers for low power nodes. Also need some 3.3v pro minis 😀
Here’s the 01:
External 5v goes in, relay feeds It’s VCC off this, then it goes through an 13337 based regulator down to 3.3v for the esp, (have to wire in a selection switch for powering the arduino also from this 5v source. Then a proper power connector.
Will update soon with any changes 🙂
