ESP8266 temperature logger

ESP8266 temperature logger

A ESP8266 temperature logger project from Facelesstech:

I decided to use the esp-01 module because I only need 2 GPIO pins since I was using the DS18B20 temp sensor and the WS2812 LED. This made the hardware really cheap and easy to reproduce too. I normally use FTDI boards when it comes to the USB to serial on my projects but I couldn’t find a FTDI board with micro USB that didn’t cost the earth. That’s why I went with the CP2102 which I hadn’t used before.
I think what really made me feel good about this project was the fact that I came up with the idea to use a Full sided male USB port for power teamed with a AMS1117 3.3v voltage regulator. This would allow me to just plug this straight into a USB wall wart or a phone charger battery bank.

More details at Facelesstech site.  All project files and code are available on Github.
