Just a quick spinoff side project I did showing the underlying IoT comms I coded for an automation project I'm busy with. ESP32 acting as a server plus AP to service multiple ESP8266 clients. As a demonstrator I'm just showing how the server gathers data from a temperature sensor and switches on a fan at a pre defined set-point. Any sensors or outputs can easily be used with this system.
