• ESP-Now

    ESP-NOW enables a direct and low-power controller for smart lights, without the need of a router. This method is power-efficient and convenient.

ESP-Now is yet another protocol developed by Espressif, which enables multiple devices to communicate with one another without using Wi-Fi. The protocol is similar to the low-power 2.4GHz wireless connectivity that is often deployed in wireless mouses. So, the pairing between devices is needed prior to their communication. After the pairing is done, the connection is persistent, peer-to-peer, while no handshake is required.
