Do you want to build your own home automation projects, but sometimes feel lost on how to actually build & program them?

Do you want to build WiFi connected home automation projects in no time, but struggled to find the right solution or piece of code to do that?

Did you sometimes found yourself spending hours to build a project, only to have nothing at all at the end?

I've been there too, and I know just how frustrated it can be. When I started to build my own home automation projects with the ESP8266, I sometimes spent DAYS trying to make something work, and often ended up with nothing at all. I know from experience that not having the right resources & knowledge can lead to hours being lost, and a lot of frustration.

This is why I created this step-by-step course to help you create your own home automation projects using the amazing ESP8266 WiFi chip, even if you are an absolute beginner in electronics, programming, or both. I really used all the experience I acquired during all the years I worked with the ESP8266, in order to create those step-by-step tutorials that will teach anyone how to create home automation projects with this amazing WiFi chip. If you are serious about creating your own home automation projects, this is the course for you.

By the end of the course, you will have a good understanding of what the ESP8266 can do, but more importantly, you will be able to build your OWN home automation projects using this chip, without literally spending days on a project just to end up with something that just doesn't work. You'll work with various components like LEDs, sensors, buttons, relays ... and also learn how to control your home automation projects remotely via WiFi. And all of this without any headaches :)

With this course, you'll get 6 modules each containing detailed step-by-step videos, in which you will learn everything you need to know about making your own home automation projects, starting from the absolute basics. You'll also have access to a private forum where you can interact with me and other makers.

So I invite you to get started today and join many other makers & myself inside this course.

I look forward to seeing you inside!
