Connected Door Sign

Introduction: Connected Door Sign

The goal of this project is to make a door sign (to say if people can enter or not) but connected to Wifi (and controlled via a webpage).

[WIP] For the moment, the wifi connection does not work but I design the display and control it via a simple button.

It uses a ePaper display to consume less energy and to display all the time the info.

    Thanks for sharing. I cant show the images on the display. I follow instructions on waveshare, is there any trick to upload the images from sd to displays flash?
