Project: IOT Christmas Lights Display

A couple of year’s back I bought one of the Neopixel light strings from Adafruit. I think it was 200 leds. I used them one season and put them away. This Christmas I decided to make an IOT Christmas light display out of it just above our horizontal blinds.

To do this I used the code explained in  the Tutorial:Storing WiFi Configuration On Your ESP8266 Using The EEPROM Library Made Simple Part 1 and Tutorial part 2. I also used code from the Adafruit Neopixel example code and integrated it with my base code to create an IOT device from the tutorial.

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
