I was wandering if there is any chance of a new design hardware, but with network and POE ?
the MCU doesn’t have wired capability. An inexpensive Access point could be a solution. If it’s a security concern, perhaps a parallel network for unsecured WiFi.
There’s little demand for a wired capability, and adding that in would be an enormous effort and cost.
I’d welcome ethernet capability for the reliability but two people asking hardly justifies the effort. If the code can be ported over to the ESP32 (I know there are still some shortcomings in the web server libraries), it has ethernet support built in.
Wifi access point is a great suggestion but i’m hoping to use this project to identify and reduce my electric load
