OBI Wifi Socket

Where to buy~

As shown in the name the Wifi Socket is only available in the OBI Diy-Warehouse. It can also be bought in the OBI online-store

Open the socket~

Opening the socket is kind of difficult. If you have one of the Tri-Wing screwdrivers it is much more easier. If you haven't got use a normal head screwdriver. Be careful not damaging your hand with it.

Tipp: Afterwards use normal cross screws to close the casing.

Connection~

ESP Programmer
VCC 3V3
TX RX
RX TX
GND GND

Connect GPIO0 to GND before connecting power to enable flash mode!

Additional Information~

A low pulse on GPIO12 switches the relay on, a low pulse on GPIO5 switches it off.
I have solved the 'pulse issue' by setting GPIO12 to always 0 (as LED) and works fine.
More Infos can be found here: #1988.

Initial Configuration~

In the default configuration GPIO0 (which is also used to enable flash-mode) is setup as a Button.
To enable AP-Mode and setup the correct GPIOs as described below,
You can short GPIO0 to GND 4 times as if it was a button (see [[Button-usage]])
Using this method allows you to flash a precompiled binary
