Network IR Server using NodeMCU and Arduino
I currently use a few Global Cache Flex units and my house which work perfectly with the UltraGCIR3 plugin but I needed a couple more and decided to roll my own. I have seen lots of examples of ESP8266 boards or bigger Arduino boards used, I currently use a couple UNO boards with switches attached built into our nightstands using the Arduino plugin but that is the extent of my "Maker" knowledge using those boards. Amazon delivered a couple NodeMCU boards Saturday afternoon but I had not ordered any other parts yet, into the junk box I went of coarse. I pulled an old Directv remote and a RGB light strip controller that had an IR receiver in it and stripped it out then pulled the IR diodes out of the remote.
