Natural Gas leak/Air quality sensor, ESPhome and MQ2 sensor

This a simple gas leak/smoke sensor that will beep an alarm when triggered and send a notification to android based on ESP8266 nodeMCU. The alarm will sound every 2 seconds and its the same tone as microwave oven. I got a speaker from an old motherboard but any small speaker will do. I have one esp8266 in the basement between the furnace and the water heater and one esp8266 in the kitchen above the stove. Natural gas (mostly methane) is less dense than air.

I use the kitchen one for other things as well

Good project. Thanks for sharing the connections and the code. I am trying to implement similar one for my home as well, waiting for the parts.

Code to test speakers. I activate it once a month.
