ESPHome is an excellent platform for developing ESP32 device firmware, especially for PoC (Proof of Concept) and MVP (Minimal Viable Product) prototypes. Using ESPHome instead of professional programming tools allows you to save a significant amount of time and work when it comes to coding. Likewise, you obtain all of your device’s necessary features.

Initially, ESPHome was the HomeAssistant smart home platform base, so this tool is intended for individual use. Thus, you cannot use it to create a commercial device designed to be used out of the box.

The main disadvantage of ESPHome is that it cannot be connected to the user’s home Wi-Fi network: Wi-Fi credentials must be pre-specified in the firmware code. Another drawback is the lack of a good mobile app for managing an ESPHome-based device.

We have solved both of these issues and are glad to present you with a tool that will assist you in developing a mobile application that includes a pairing feature for ESPHome-based devices.

2Smart Cloud – IoT Platform with ESPHome support

2Smart Cloud is a cloud IoT platform with a free plan for home developers. We believe that the ESP32 is the most versatile MCU in IoT devices today. Our experience has shown that ESPHome is the best way to quickly connect anything from a home appliance and garage doors to industrial heat pumps and greenhouses. Therefore, we created a unique tool that allows the benefits of ESPHome and overcomes its drawbacks.

How it works:

  • Write your own ESPHome code or paste the ready solution directly into the web interface.
    Field for entering ESPHome code
  • 2Smart Cloud builds the firmware for the device on our servers.
  • Downloadable .zip firmware automatically includes all the necessary tools for simple pairing of ESPHome devices
  • To connect ESPHome devices, launch the mobile app, initiate pairing, and enter Wi-Fi credentials.
    Device pairing
  • After the pairing is completed, enjoy using your device!

Please note that you don’t need to install any additional software other than the mobile application! Your IoT product gets cloud management functionality out of the box. Besides this, you can control the device from any location with an internet connection!
