Dear community, greetings to all.
This is my first post want to thank you in advance for every help.
I am new to the arduino world, my recent project is a blinking rgb strip controlled by a switch button :
I’ve ordered an ESP-01 or ESP 8266 to start a project controlled over WiFi.
I am using a USB to TTL to power up my arduino pro mini, now I need to attach somehow the esp-01 to the arduino (not sure if i need the adapter which I bought in a bundle). As i know it has a regulator for 5v->3.3v.
I connected the ESP-01 directly to the TTL and flashed a firmware (even few of them after failing with my project).
I was using this tutorial for the wiring:
My code returns me that the WiFi shield is not present.
One of the problems that I saw is that I cannot (or don’t know how) send the AT commands to my esp.
Please see attached image of the components that i am using (ignore the wiring).
Any advice is welcome!
Thank you in advance.
