Hi Arek,

I tried your gesture controller. After succesfully chip flashing a Wemos D1 mini and trying to connect to my WIFI over captiva portal nothing happens. The Dziky-XXX cannot connect to my 2.4GHz Network although it is shown and password is set correct. Router is a Fritzbox 6490.

Any ideas?

Meanwhile I get WIFI connection to work by resetting the D1 mini and again flashing with your .bin Files. By the way the values in your nodemcu-flasher shows other address-values as in your text. I first flashed with those of your screenshot with no success. Only those values of your description seem to be the right ones..

Now there is a problem in the pairing-process within Apple’s Home App. The Gestures Sensor is shown, but when adding it, I get an error message that Gestures Sensor could not added because of no connection to the sensor.

I got the sensor working today. The connections were probably too bad. Many thanks for the excellent work!

Hey Arek, indeed I have a lot of ideas for sensors and actuators. At the moment I am experimenting with sensors that count movement-directions of people into rooms to let the smarthome-system “know”, if there is at least 1 person in a room to switch light. All commercial movement sensors (Philips HUE, Aqara, Ikea) are much too inaccurate and too slow for those reliable circuits I want to realize. My prototype with 2 IR-Sensors already works very good and fast, but I need much more sensor range of meters instead of cm. Maybe you’re interested in this project?

That sounds great. Please let me know, if your hardware works 🙂

One more thing: For energy saving I recommend deactivating the internal LED of the ESP8266. Could you do an firmware-update for that?

One more thing 🙂 Is it possible to change all Gesture Sensor Buttons in HomeKit from Moving Sensors to Stateless Button? So you could directly configure Switching-Automations in Home App?

My idea is to setup 9 Stateless Buttons for every gesture, as the sensor is more a switch than a motion sensor. The Buttons don’t need 3 states but only 1 . Sure I can make automations based on triggering sensors, but Stateless Buttons give the ability to directly configure the action within the Button window itself. I don’t have to go to Automations-page. BTW: Isn’t there a difference in resetting time between Triggering sensor and Stateless Buttons in HomeKit? I think Triggering sensors have larger duration to switch off the motion. So a Stateless Button should switch faster between… Read more »

Is there a config for Users???

Another idea 😉 What’s about the missing gestures “forward-backward”, “backward-forward”, “left-right”, “right-left”, “up-down”, “down-up”. In the library demo these gestures work very reliably (quite different from wave, clockwise, anti-clockwise, which are often misinterpreted by the sensor). It would be great for users to config only those gestures they would like to use. What do you think? 🙂
