It's important to note that neither the gateway nor the nodes require a separate access-point, they work together in point-to-point mode using the minimal ESP-Now library. The ESP-Now protocol doesn't use IP addresses, so there's no need for DHCP or for assigning static addresses, no connecting to an access-point, no routing protocol and none of the other overheads or error handling! The ESP-Now modules gateway and nodes use the MAC address as the unique ID when addressing each other, so connections are very fast and, providing your sensor node acquires the sensor data before attempting to connect to the gateway, the amount of time which the ESP WiFi is active can be significantly less than a second.
The basic W modules come without a MAC address assigned, so you need to manually assign one yourself. Feel free to change it. Anthony "TornTrousers" Elder has also suggested in his demo code that the WiFi MAC address used by the gateway should also be changed to use a locally administered number, as this would allow the gateway hardware to be swapped out at any time without disrupting the remote nodes by flashing the gateway firmware onto a new ESP module, it automaticalley gets the gateway MAC address.
Again, you don't have to use this suggestion or this particular address, so feel free to change it, but be aware that in this case every node must have the new address hard coded. My final note regarding MACs is this. My initial impression from reading the very limited documentation on ESP-Now was that the gateway accepted connections from anyone and everyone up to a limit of 20 separate nodesas long as they were using the ESP-Now protocol and knew the gateway MAC address.
I assumed that the ESP-Now library managed the linked-list of nodes and added to the list whenever a new node was seen.
My own very limited so far testing seems to indicate that this is not the case and that we need to manage the linked-list ourselves otherwise the gateway only seems to "see" about one message in every thirty, or so from "unlisted" nodes.
To that end I'm simply doing a brute-force add to the linked-list of half-a-dozen node addresses at start-up. The simplest fix for this would be to limit the W to 4 too, but I'd be interested in hearing any ideas on how to handle this a little more graciously other than the obvious bulk-edit changing the constant to a different name in one or other of the libraries.
In the meantime, feel free to ignore the warning unless you have a high number of very verbose nodes. I've already put in a pull request for this change on the WizNet library, but in the meantime I've just left a fixed copy of the library in the project lib directory. Skip to content.

This means an ESP-Now sensor can do the wakeup-send-sleep cycle in around 40 milliseconds, about an order of magnitude faster than previously and it should now get really good battery life.
Its built on top of I've given some examples of it before, herehowever ESP-Now doesn't work with Wifi so a gateway receiving ESP-Now transmissions can't also connect to a Wifi network, so thats made it pretty impractical for most uses. I've been playing about with ESP-Now again recently and come up with two workarounds for the Wifi co-existence problem.
The first approach of restarting the ESP might seem a bit clunky but it actually works ok. The restart takes a few seconds most of the time spent reconnecting WiFiso if there aren't too many remote ESP-Now sensors or the sensor transmissions aren't too frequent then the Gateway being regularly unavailable for a few seconds doesn't actually matter.
The second approach with using two ESPs is more complicated to set up but also more robust and allows higher throughput. These are some ESP-Now devices using this approach. Skip to content.

Aug 19, Aug 21, This protocol enables multiple devices to talk to each other in an easy way. Follow the next guide:. The protocol is similar to the low-power 2. The pairing between devices is needed prior to their communication. After the pairing is done, the connection is safe and peer-to-peer, with no handshake being required.
This means that after pairing a device with each other, the connection is persistent. In other words, if suddenly one of your boards loses power or resets, when it restarts, it will automatically connect to its peer to continue the communication.
This configuration is ideal to build something like a remote control. This configuration is ideal if you want to collect data from several sensors nodes into one ESP32 board. This can be configured as a web server to display data from all the other boards, for example.
Every board can be a sender or receiver. So, you can establish a two-way communication between boards. You can add more boards to this configuration and have something that looks like a network all ESP32 boards communicate with each other. View raw code. The MAC address should be printed as follows:. Then, you can modify the structure to send whichever variable types are suitable for your project like sensor readings, or boolean variables to turn something on or off.
ESP-NOW works with callback functions that are called when a device receives a message or when a message is sent you get if the message was successfully delivered or if it failed. You need to make a few modifications to make it work for you. Then, create a structure that contains the type of data we want to send.
You can change this to send whatever variable types you want. Next, define the OnDataSent function. This is a callback function that will be executed when a message is sent. In this case, this message simply prints if the message was successfully delivered or not. In the setupinitialize the serial monitor for debugging purposes:. In this case, we register for the OnDataSent function created previously. Remember that myData is a structure. Here we assign the values we want to send inside the structure.
For example, the first line assigns a char, the second line assigns a random Int number, a Float, a String and a Boolean variable.This protocol enables multiple devices to talk to each other without using Wi-Fi.
This is a fast communication protocol that can be used to exchange small messages up to bytes between ESP32 boards. ESP-NOW is very versatile and you can have one-way or two-way communication in different arrangements.
Follow the next guide:. Install the following libraries in your Arduino IDE. These libraries can be installed through the Arduino Library Manager. You can use the preceding links or go directly to MakerAdvisor. To send messages between each board, we need to know their MAC address. View raw code. Upload the following code to each of your boards.
Create variables to store temperature, humidity and pressure readings from the BME sensor. These readings will be sent to the other board:. The following variable will store a success message if the readings are delivered successfully to the other board. Then, you need to create two instances of that structure. One to receive the readings and another to store the readings to be sent.
The incomingReadings will store the data coming from the other board. Then, we need to create two callback functions. One will be called when data is sent, and another will be called when data is received. The OnDataSent function will be called when new data is sent.
This function simply prints if the message was successfully delivered or not. The OnDataRecv function will be called when a new packet arrives.
Then, store the incoming readings in their corresponding variables. To access the temperature variable inside incomingReadings structure, you just need to do call incomingReadings. In order to send data to another board, you need to pair it as a peer.
The following lines register and add a new peer. In the loopwe call the getReadings function that is responsible for getting new temperature readings from the sensor.
That function is created after the loop. After getting new temperature, humidity and pressure readings, we update our BMEReading structure with those new values:. You should upload the code to both of your boards. After uploading the code to both boards, you should see the OLED displaying the sensor readings from the other board, as well as a success delivery message.
We tested the communication range between the two boards, and we are able to get a stable communication up to meters approximately feet in open field. In this experiment both ESP32 on-board antennas were pointing to each other.Upgrade to the best Bible learning experience!

It is another protocol developed by Espressif. I'll show you an introduction to the subject and make several ESPs32 communicate through this scheme. Therefore, an ESP32 will read the pins and transmit their values, while the other devices will receive these values and change the output of the pins according to those numbers.
This network is reliable and is 2. This network also is with the same frequency and channels as your WiFi router. The highlight, however, is that it goes away from WiFi, as it is instant. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. In our assembly, we have an ESP32 isolated, which is configured as Master. It is important to remember that there is no Master device, and that they all function as Stations.
When this button is pressed, a LED lights up in this microcontroller, and all four other ESPs32 instantly restart the action.PART 2 ESPNOW - The Ultimate DIY Home Security System - ESP8266 (trigBoard) + 4G LTE Modem
Why does this occur? Because the moment the Master sends the information to the station, it is sending a MAC address of Broadcast, which means that everyone on the network receives the data at the same time.
In this example, I compiled the same receiver for all microcontrollers. I copied the code that sends to the Master, and this one also sends the Broadcast to the others. In the serial print of Setup, both the sending and the receiving code contain the MAC address values of each of the chips involved.
See the example in the pictures. I will show here that in the tests we did with the ESPs32, they managed to communicate up to See on the map. Let's define the channel for connection and the pins that will be read, as well as the data that will be sent to Slaves. We still work with the MAC Address of the slaves to which we will send the reading. In this part, we will deal with the Master, remembering that we have a Master and four Slaves.
We also calculate the size of the array with the MAC addresses of the slaves and create a variable that will save the information of each slave. We inform the channel and add the slave. In this step, we record the callback that will inform us about the status of the shipment. The function that will be executed is OnDataSent and is declared below. We put the slave in read mode and call the send function, which deals with sending.
The InitESPNow function is simple and works here with the possibilities of successful boot, as well as possibilities of error during boot time. This array will store the read values.We are a strong Community of developers, hackers, and visionaries. No, seriously, we are! So you're a Noob? Post your questions here until you graduate! Don't be shy. The slave unit will then handle the received data and eventually upload to the web, to ThingSpeak or Adafruit IO. Next I manipulated the code in order for it to work with more than one sensor, at the moment three sensors: DHT22 and two DS18B20 The data is being sent from each sensor to the single slave unit and when I open the serial monitor for the slave unit I can see it all perfectly fine.
Code: Select all void sendReading. Code: Select all Serial. ESP-Now has the concept of controllers and slaves. I'm not a coder and have to cut and paste others work.
I would like to use the dht22 but it appears from your sensor sketch, it is not included. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!! My project expanded to 8 remote sensors in the end, taking hourly readings via NTC thermistors for speed and sending this data to the single slave unit.
