Dear All,

I have just started to use ESP8266. Actually I am working ona new sensor network which might involves 400 sensors were all of them have ESP8266 to communicate together as a MESH Network. How I can make an ID to address Node individually?

400 sensors is a quite big number to start with.

Few basic questions to answer when starting a project like that:

  • How do you plan to do the network segmentation
  • What kind of communication model you want to implement. Do you need a one-to-many or a many-to-many one?
  • How often do you want /need update from the sensor? It's a pooling proces or real-time push?
  • Do you need encryption or just rely on your WIFI WPA?
