ESP8266 01

ESP8266-01 is a very low cost WiFi enabled chip. But it has very limited I/O.This module is a self-contained SOC (System On a Chip) that doesn’t necessarily need a microcontroller to manipulate inputs and outputs as you would normally do with an Arduino, for example, because the ESP-01 acts as a small computer.

LIST OF AT COMMANDS

By default this module comes with AT command’s firmware. So for getting started with this and also for making projects using this, you’ll definitely need list of the AT commands it supports. So you can download the list of AT commands from here.


GETTING STARTED VIDEOS

This tutorial video is made by me Sachin Soni. I have tried to make this video as simple and as precise as possible. Still if you find any doubts, you can definitely mail me at sachinsms1990@gmail.com. I have used Arduino Board along with esp8266 board bu tyou can even use USB to TTL convertor.


UTILITY VIDEO

Sometimes you need to upgrade the version of it’s firmware as to do your particular project work. Hence for updating the firmware of this tiny wifi module, I have made one video so that you can easily upgrade it’s firmware by just using your Arduino Board.
