In this project I will show you how easy/difficult it is to use an ESP32 with the Arduino IDE in order to add WiFi control to any electronics project. Along the way I will show you how to use the ESP32 to create a simple WiFi server and how to create a fitting control app for your smartphone. Let's get started!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Watch the Video!
The video gives you all information you need to add WiFi control to any of your electronics projects. In the next steps though, I will present you some additional information.
Step 2: Order Your ESP32!
Here you can find suppliers for the ESP32: (Mine is from the Ebay link)
Step 3: Upload the Code!
Here you can find the code/sketch that I created during the video. Feel free to download it and use it for your own projects.
Here are also useful reference sites for the ESP32 that I also partly used in the video:
Step 4: Install the App!
Here you can download the App that I created during the video for Android phones. But you can also easily create your own App with the MIT App Inventor: http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/
Step 5: Success!
You did it! You just added a WiFi control to your electronics project!
