Low Power Weather Station Datalogger using ESP8266 | Random Nerd Tutorials
This project shows how to build a data logger that publishes temperature, humidity and pressure readings every 10 minutes to a Google Sheets spreadsheet using an ESP8266 12-E. Between sensor readings the ESP is in deep sleep mode and only consumes 7μA. The ESP board is programmed using MicroPython and we use the IFTTT Webhooks service to integrate the project with Google sheets.

Wifi based DIY 5V switcher for led-lights
5V powered 100LED circuit was consuming around ~1.8Watts(though 5.1Ohm series resistor was really hot) and the brightness of the LED's were not bad, especially difference between first led and last led brightness didnt bother me it was hardly noticeable when seen from distance. So I decided to use them as a christmas decoration for my garden.

I wanted to use them with battery-bank as there was no power-outlet readily available(for the safety of my children, i would avoid any 230v circuit in my garden especially in wet weather).
Also I wanted them to be switchable remotely to avoid going out in the freezing cold. Hence this is what i came up with.. an "ESP-12F based USB-5V switcher"

An Electronic Love Letter to the Wind | Hackaday
Home weather stations are a great way for hackers and makers to put their skills to practical use. After all, who wants to hear the current conditions for the whole city when they could setup their own station which drills that information down to their very own street? Such a setup doesn’t need to be any more complex than a temperature sensor wired up to a microcontroller, but then not all of us are quite the weather fanatic that [Richard] clearly is.

The system he’s built to monitor the wind over his home is, to put it mildly, incredible. We might not all share the obsession [Richard] apparently has with the wind, but we can certainly respect the thought and design that went into this comprehensive system. From his scratch built anemometer to the various ways he’s come up with to display the collected environmental data throughout his home, if this build doesn’t inspire you to hack together your own weather station then nothing will.

TrigBoard: arduino-based button detection project
The trigBoard is an IoT project that does one thing - it pushes you a notification triggered by a digital input. Well, it's much more than that, but this is the inspiration. I wanted to design a WiFi board that essentially sleeps most of its life, but when that door switch, flood sensor, motion sensor, etc.. gets triggered, I just want a notification immediately on my phone. And that's about it (by Kevin Darrah)

Securing your esp8266
This is an article about using TLS/SSL to secure an esp8266 device so it can be safely accessed over the internet. At the time of writing there is no native on board support for TLS/SSL certificates and given the hardware capabilities of current boards, I’d say this is just how it is and it’s unlikely to change. This means that if we want TLS protection for our esp device(s) we need to use some other external device as an up front security layer.

Better, Smaller WiFi Throwies | Hackaday
Because the world doesn’t have enough electronic junk floating around, [Victor] has improved the WiFi Throwie.

A decade ago, when strong, cheap magnets, bright LEDs, and small coin cell batteries were materials fresh to hacking, someone had a great idea: tape all these items up and throw them on bridges and overpasses. The LED throwie was born, and while we’re sure the biggest installation of LED throwies looked cool, it’s really just a small-scale environmental disaster.

Since then, the ESP8266 was created, and the world now has a tiny WiFi-enabled computer that’s the size of a postage stamp.

A library to make using WiFi & MQTT on the ESP8266 easy.
I wrote this library to help with my own home automation projects. It handles connecting (and reconnecting when the connection is lost) for both a wifi network and MQTT broker. When reconnecting it automatically resubscribes to subscribed topics on an MQTT broker. It is also capable of automatically hopping between different network/MQTT setups (I wrote this is mostly so that I could move from my home network to work and have my prototypes be able to connect to whatever environment was most convinient). The library also features the ability to use the ArduinoOTA system for OTA updates. There are a number of wrapper methods for enabling/disabling OTA and changing the OTA hostname and password.

ESP8266 Keeps An Eye On Your Batteries | Hackaday
There are many more things to know about a battery than its voltage and current output at any given moment, and most of them can’t be measured with a standard multimeter unless you also stand there for a long time with an Excel spreadsheet. The most useful information is battery capacity, which can tell you how much time is left until the battery is fully charged or fully discharged. [TJ] set out to create a battery data harvester, and used the ubiquitous ESP8266 to make a fully-featured battery monitor.

ESP8266 As A Networked MP3 Decoder @ Hackaday
This demo, a networked MP3 webradio player, just popped up in Github, written by the man better known to us as Sprite_tm. We can’t wait to see more.

The MP3 decoder itself is a port of the MAD MP3 library, adapted for smaller amounts of SRAM and ported to the ESP8266. With a couple external parts, you can make an internet-connected device that you can point to any Icecast MP3 stream, for instance, and it’ll decode and play the resulting audio.

Practical IoT Cryptography on the Espressif ESP8266 | Hackaday
This article will focus on applying AES encryption and hash authorization functions to the MQTT protocol using the popular ESP8266 chip running NodeMCU firmware. Our purpose is not to provide a copy/paste panacea, but to go through the process step by step, identifying challenges and solutions along the way. The result is a system that’s end-to-end encrypted and authenticated, preventing eavesdropping along the way, and spoofing of valid data, without relying on SSL.

SwitchiFy - Wifi Home Automation Board from vijayenthiran @ Tindie
SwitchiFy is easy to use Wifi relay board. The relays are configured as a 4-way switch (DPDT) which can be configured in multiple ways. The board is designed to give the best user experience. It also comes with a (beta) android app to control the switches. The board works out of the box without any programming. The Wemos D1 mini (with USB programming via Arduino/Lua) on board can be used to program custom firmware on the board.
