so I thought about using ESP NOW to communicate the two for being very fast and low energy, but after research I have some doubts about the esp now:
1- Can esp now be used in conjunction with a wifi connection?
I read that the channel of the esp now should be the same as the wifi, but I heard that it only works on channel 1 or 0 is it true?
2 - studying some example codes I realized that the wifi mode is sometimes changed from AP to STA, can this be avoided? because the second sp8266 must remain connected to the access point (STA)
3 - Can I make a broadcast using a broadcasting mac?
I would be very grateful if anyone can answer
