Espressif Systems ESP32
The ESP32 is a low-cost, low-power microcontroller with integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, developed by Espressif Systems. One of the main features of the ESP32 is its dual-core processor, which allows it to perform tasks concurrently and makes it suitable for a wide range of applications. The ESP32 also has a built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, which makes it easy to connect to the internet and other devices wirelessly. It is commonly used in a variety of applications, including Internet of Things (IoT) devices, home automation systems, and portable projects.

WLED only does one thing: It controls NeoPixel LEDs (WS2812B, WS2811, SK6812). And it is class leading at what it does.
This WLED guide will give you an overview of what you need to get started. Find out which microcontroller and LED strip is best, and how to wire them.
I finally built a small project that allowed me to use WLED for the first time. I used an ESP8266 board and a bunch of WS2812B LEDs to complete it.
This ESPHome video doorbell with voice response is looks sleek, uses open-source software, and seamlessly integrates with Home Assistant.
In some cases, the ESPHome dashboard will show all nodes as offline, despite them being online. A single variable is the fix.
The ESP32 is a low-cost, low-power, and ESPHome-compatible system on a chip microcontroller.
Building a multisensor is one of the first things you should when starting off with ESPHome. The sensors are cheap, the wiring isn't complicated, and you get your first taste of creating custom firmware for an ESP8266 .
This volume knob uses a rotary encoder to control your music's volume and its firmware is written using ESPHome. An OLED screen displays the current track.
