Hi This is my first post on the site, I searched/looked/tried a bunch of things but none worked for me.
So… here I go.
I have the Node MCU ESP8266 (esp-12e model) and a generic PIR motion sensor with 3 pins.
I tried connecting the “data/yellow” wire to a bunch of different pins (2, 3, 13, 17) are the ones I was told to use by different posts and comments and from the ESPHome how to. nothing works…
heres the wiring:
- red: on the 3v3
- black: on the ground
- yellow: on the “out” pin from the PIR and pin D7 or D3 or D4 etc…
also tried spelling in the .yaml
this is the last one i tried:
- platform: gpio
name: "Pin D7”
I tried a bunch of variants that were all recommended by one or the other tutorials that i tried
I really don’t know why its not recognizing it it’s so simple i just dont get it. please help.
