    Default INTEREST ONLY: Renard ESP8266 WiFi Adapter Group Buy

    This is to gauge interest in a second round of this group buy.

    If you would want some of these units as the PCB and BOM, then please post in this thread with the number you'd probably buy.
    This is not a commitment on your part to purchase, but the numbers will determine if a Group Buy is started by me or not.
    Thanks!

    I imagine it would be the same or identical to the first round:

    i am interested. Assuming i need atleast 1 to get from the PC or FPP to the first board, then i could daisy chain from there correct? Or place one on each board right?

    This technology sits with existing Renard controllers and allows them to become wireless via wifi.
    So.. I'm not sure I understand the question regarding integration with a Falcon Pi Player.

    I think he is thinking it's like zigbee radio's, one to send and one to receive.
    And no that is not the case. You only need one at the controller. At the pc you have a WiFi router sending out the signal.

    If the Pi outputs wifi, (or my PC puts ou wifi, depending on which I use) then my first RenSS will pick up the signal right?

    So to answer your question, yes. Your PC or Pi put out a Ethernet signal to your wifi router that puts a wireless signal in the air for your tablet, phone, TV and the ESP. The ESP and attached board from this buy, receive the wifi signal and convert it to renard for the board it's plugged into. You can hard wire daisy chain to the next renard as normal. Or zigbee wireless to the output to the zigbee on your next renard. You can plug one of these into each renard and they all would receive a wifi signal converted to renard. Renard is so versatile.

    This is a bump to try and make sure no one misses this. I will close this interest thread this coming Monday and then see if we can move forward with a Group Buy.
