Open Source ESP8266

ESP8266 add on board for Arduino, BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi

Designed in EU by Qualtek, the open low energy WiFi is an ESP8266 based platform ideal for DIY implementations of IoT applications.

Thanks to its open, license-free SDK, backed by a multitude of use-case examples and the easy way to flash customized logic, through the micro-USB, the platform can host versatile paradigms of IoT applications such as:

Fencing of physical spaces (e.g. public exhibitions, building spaces).

Guidance and crowd sourcing

Home automation systems (surveillance, control, monitoring)

Alarm systems

Smart city networks and service solutions

Sensor networks with OTA updates
