Tutorial:Storing WiFi Configuration On Your ESP8266 Using The EEPROM Library Made Simple Part 2

This is Part 2 of a 2 part tutorial that will simplify the way you can store your WiFi configuration on an ESP8266 using the EEPROM library. With this knowledge you can then build Internet Of Things (IOT) projects that can be configured by web form. This will enable to change passwords or IP configuration when needed without having to recompile your sketch.

In part 2 you will learn howto read information "your stored in memory in part one" out of memory. How to use it to configure your IOT device to connect to your WiFi network, and make it user configurable by combining Part 1 and 2 in one sketch

Tutorial:Storing WiFi Configuration On Your ESP8266 Using The EEPROM Library Made Simple Part 1

This tutorial is part 1 of 2 that will simplify the way you can store your WiFi configuration on an ESP8266 using the EEPROM library. With this knowledge you can then build Internet Of Things (IOT) projects that can be configured by web form. This will enable to change passwords or IP configuration when needed without having to recompile your sketch.

In part 1 we learn how to write the information to your IOT project, part 2 will teach you how to read this information out of memory and configure your IOT project so it can connect to your WiFi router

Helpful Tip: How to create a more professional and user friendly Arduino project by storing your configuration in the EEPROM

As makers we strive to make projects that are easy to use and have a more professional feel about them. If your project is user configurable (e.g. are you using C or F for your temperature), how do you store that information so it is kept, even when the Arduino gets reset?

 What if you could make your Arduino remember these types of user changeable settings (e.g. using a menu saving your Wi-Fi password)?
