#62292 After using the MPRSx8 - Home Automation DevBoard with ESPBasic (driver example here) now it's time to explore also the ESPEasy Firmware capabilities.

For MPRSx8 general presentation and hardware description please take a look also at Part 1 of the MPRSx8 series:http://www.esp8266-projects.com/2016/11/wifi-mains-8x-relay-board-for-home.html

#62692 Part 2 of the series, ESPEasy Firmware Upload tutorial using a simple standard USB-to-Serial Adapter:



Somebody was asking if is really possible to upload firmware with a simple USB to serial adapter, as the ones that are available all over the place. As you can see from the above step-by-step tutorial it is possible and is working very smooth. You are loosing the autoreset and autoupload capabilities of the USBProg board, but as long as you are doing rarely the firmware upload is not so bad.
On the other hand, if you want to use it with Arduino IDE or anything else that means frequent upload then I think you will start looking after that functions sooner or later, I think more sooner than later :)
