ESP8266 IoT Based RGB LED Strip Controller

In this project we are making WiFi based RGB LED Strip Controller using ESP8266 and Arduino IDE. First we make basic RGB LED Controller using NodeMCU to understand How to control RGB LED colors using PWM?. Then we make little advanced RGB LED Strip controller with easy to use color pallet selection user interface as shown below.

ESP8266 weather station using Arduino IDE

Today we are making really cool weather station using ESP8266 (NodeMCU) and DHT11, rain sensor. In this project, we’ll learn how to make a DIY fully featured weather station using an ESP8266 and sensors. There are two types of weather station, one which is having own sensors and second type of weather station is where we pull data from the weather station servers. In this tutorial we are looking at both types of weather stations.
