Firmware Flash Guide

To be able to connect your projects to our platform, you need to install our software (also called firmware) on your hardware. Only with this software, your microcontroller (we call this component “bridge”) is able to communicate with our platform.

The firmware is compatible with many variants of the ESP8266:

  • ESP12 variants (ESP-12e, ESP-12f, ESP-12s,…)
  • ESP07 variants
  • NodeMCU variants (v2, v3,…)
  • WeMos D1 variants
  • and many more!

The following instructions will help you to flash the Sensate firmware:

Hardware wiring instructions

If you don’t use a developer board like the NodeMCU or WeMos D1 Mini, you probably have to wire your chip properly first. For the ESP-12 and ESP-07 we have prepared a tutorial:
