I am developing a system to read data from a number of sources. Each unit will provide data via the ESP8266. I need to use the Network building capability of the ESP8266. I will have 1 master and 16 slaves. Do you have experience with this function?
Can you use a Raspberry Pi in your setup?
I would probably install Mosquitto MQTT broker on a Raspberry Pi. Then, all ESP8266 would communicate with each other using publish/subscribe with MQTT messages.
Rui, thanks for the quick response!! As a matter of fact a Raspberry Pi will oversee this project. I am in the early development stages but I will keep you informed. Thanks again!!
