Light control with NodeMCU v3

The goal is to control all my lights with Domoticz and my wall switches.

A NodeMCU v3 will be used as the controller, a PCF8574 board to extand I/O, a 4 relays board to switch lights on/off and a mini AC-DC converter.

ESPeasy is the firmware of the main board and Domoticz the home automation manager.

Home configuration

Lights in the home are simple or 3-way switches. By the way, all cables from live, neutral and between switches and lights are gathered in a connecting box as the following: wiring_present

The house is divided into two part, one for living rooms with 6 lights (2 are peers) and one for sleeping rooms with 7 independant lights. Thus there are two boxes.

The idea is to implement all the stuff in these boxes. The configuration will be the following one : wiring_futur

Hardware

As NodeMCU as few GPIO pin available, PCF8574A boards will be used to expand I/O ports. For living rooms, one board is mandatory whereas in sleeping rooms two boards are mandatory.

GPIOs 4 (D1) and 5 (D2) will be used as SDA and SCL.

Software

Lights have to :

  • be controlled by Domoticz,
  • be autonomous (manual switch in case of network lost) and report back the state of lights to Domoticz.
