You're welcome.The ESP WiFi module uses less than 200mA, so just about any 5V supply will do. You might even already have an old phone charger you no longer need. Or look in dollar stores, they usually have them for, er a dollar :-)

I would not connect two outputs. I think that would cause problems for the ESP.Alternatively, since the ESP is a microcontroller like an Arduino, you COULD implement the timer on it. Might be more than what you want to chew though :-) .You will also need to read current time from timer server in the cloud if you want it to be accurate.
Looks great! Love the fused power switch! Thanks for sharing your build!
How exciting! Glad you were able to solve it.Yes, please post pictures, I'd love to see it!
I've never seen those errors, but one common cause of upload failure is that the ESP is not in program/flash mode.Power off the ESP, connect GPIO 0 to ground, apply power to the ESP. Now the ESP is ready to receive new program.Compile and upload the sketch in Arduino IDE.1 - I don't think Programmer setting on the IDE matters, but mine is set to "ArduinoISP"2 - You should be able to flash the ESP out of the box or any state since we're replacing everything that's on it.3 - As long as GPIO 0 is LOW/grounded during programming and the other pins such as Chip Enable and reset are properly set, it does not matter what you have connected to the ESP.Good luck!
