Step 1-8 : Software Install

Step 1 : Purchase a Nodemcu Board, it needs to be one of the latest ones, we have tried the amica board and the lolin board, both work fine, cheapest we have found is ebay at just £2.99 delivered - a link to one NodeMcu Board, however if you dont want to wait 3-4 weeks for China post to arrive, we recommend here :- ESP Nodemcu Board. After several requests we have a small amount of ESP boards for sale, flashed and tested overnight to make sure they are totally stable, please visit this page to purchase.

Step 2 : Plug the board into the a PC USB port.

You may need to install drivers for the board. Nodemcu and the Lolin board use the CH340G Usb to serial drives and the Amica uses the CP2102 drivers, just search the web to find the latest version..If you cant find them we have a working version on our downloads page.

Once these are installed your board should come up in Windows Device Manager under Ports. Make a note of the port its installed it to, this may change. In the examples below the Amica board is on COM3 and the Lolin board is on COM14
