Introduction: Control Your ESP8266 From Anywhere in the World
How can I control my ESP8266 from anywhere and don't need to setup my Router Port for control from Internet?
I have a solution for that problem. With the simple PhP-Server i wrote, you can add an ESP8266 control ESP8266 GPIOs from anywhere in less than 3 minutes!
Step 1: What You'll Need:
Highly recommend buying esp8266 NodeMcu. We can simply plug it into PC and use it as an arduino.
Step 2: Register Your Free Account
First you need to create your free account at my free server. Go to http://http://eclub-tcu.com/esp8266/, type all your details and submit your registration.
Step 3: Program Your ESP8266 With Arduino Code
Recommend board with ESP8266 v12, and edit the GPIO name you want.
Note: Have two lines you should edit folow:
const char* host = "eclub-tcu.com";
String path = "/esp8266/test/xxx.json";//xxx is your-username";
Step 4: Check It With Serial Monitor
All done, That's very simple!
