With regards to : https://randomnerdtutorials.com/esp8266-wi-fi-button-diy-amazon-dash-button-clone/
I build this excellent project, but sadly cannot get the button to do the actual reset. All seems to be working otherwise, because when I connect the device to power, it does send a mail as it is suppose to – but not when I press the button.
I triple checked my wiring and tried other ESP’s as well, with the same result. Also build it again on a breadboard with different components (button as well) – but still no reset occurs.
Any advise will be much appreciated!
You need to connect a pushbutton to the ESP reset pin, are you following the exact tutorial?
Or are you using the on-board reset button of the ESP8266? Which board are you using (can you post a link to where you purchased the board)?
This is the ESP I bought (ESP-01): http://gdiye.co.za/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=80
I followed your instructions to the letter (I hope), but even if I bridge the reset pin to ground (simulate the button), it still does nothing.
If the code is working, it can only be a problem with your circuit. I can tell your for sure that if you wire a pushbutton with a pull up resistor to the RESET pin, when you press the pushbutton it will reset your board.
Your circuit seems correct, but I couldn’t only really debug it, if it was on my hands…
I honestly recommend doing this project in a bigger breadboard and start from the beginning to see which connection is missing:
