Home Automation System - OpenHAB 3 Migration - 28. ESP8266 Wifi Repeater [Versione in italiano]
by Marco Lamanna
Twenty-eighth chapter related to my OpenHAB 2.5 to OpenHAB 3 migration.
In this video we are going to see how I configured an ESP8266 board to transform it into a Wifi Repeater / Router in order to allow some wifi devices in the garden, far from home routers, to connect to the network.
Thanks to a custom firmware written by martin-ger https://github.com/martin-ger/esp_wifi_repeater the ESP8266 is able to connect two wifi networks, one of which is generated by the ESP8266 itself.
This video does not pretend to be a tutorial. The hope is that it will help someone.
Enjoy your viewing
