I'd like to create Wi-Fi controlled window blinds using ESP8266 ESP-01 and L293D motor driver. I found few guides online that use similar setup, but usually they use Arduino or ATiny85 to control the driver. However the ESP-01 supposedly has a microcontroller built in (BergMicro 25Q80ASSIG) that you can opt to use and I was wondering if it's possible to use it to control the L293D?
I was playing around in Fritzig and the general breadboard came up like so, but I am unsure how to connect the ESP with the motor driver or if it is possible with this configuration at all...
(Please keep in mind that the last and only time I used breadboard, or came even close to anything related to the electrical engineering domain, was during one optional class few years back at the university. So this entire schema might be all wrong. Any suggestions/hints/etc are greatly appreciated)
the ESP8266 ESP-01 is the following one:
Also I am struggling to find a good option for the power supply. A 9V rechargable batteries are as expensive as the rest of the parts, but I haven't figured out a better solution yet - I am looking for something small and easily rechargable.
