  1. A few weeks ago, I installed shop air in my garage. I was pretty proud when it held 150psi all night. But of course I did not quite tighten a connection and at 2 AM (or so my daughter tells me) there was a loud bang followed by a steady "compressor" noise. I did not notice until the next morning when I wondered why there was a noise from the garage. That compressor was pretty hot for running 6 hours straight. Of course this could be stopped by turning the compressor off each night. But, I write embedded software for a living and lately I have been deep into IoT projects. Naturally, this was an ideal chance to do something about my dumb compressor. Ingredients First, I needed a way to switch the compressor on-off remotely. These Sonoff switches are almost perfect. On the plus side, they have an ESP8266 inside so I can run TASOMOTA which is a generic Home Automation / IoT firmware for all things 8266. On the down side, they only are good for 10A. So I added a 120VAC 2 pole relay good for 30A. The compressor has a 16.6A motor draw so some overkill seems appropriate. I refreshed the Sonoff Basic with Tasmota and installed everything inside a metal electrical box. And when I visited the web page: I can turn the compressor on/off from my phone. Fantastic! As long as I had everything opened up, I went ahead and added 2 pressure sensors. Left and right of the primary pressure regulator. The left side sensor goes to the compressor and lets me know what it is doing. I am now tempted to remove the mechanical hysteretic controller on the compressor and simply use the Sonoff switch and some electronic pressure sensing to do the same thing. We shall see. Everything is now in place to ensure the compressor can be automatically turned off, or have a maximum run limit. The only thing left is software! Good Luck.
  2. Saw this on Hackaday today - nice to be able to connect to the cloud using an 8-bitter like this! https://hackaday.com/2018/10/27/new-avr-iot-board-connects-to-google/

    For those too busy to generate this from START or MCC, this is v1.0.2 of the AVR IoT WG Sensor board source code
