Arduino Uno R3 connected to ESP8266-12E and Blynk App

Hello to the community, I am new on the arduino idea. I am trying to find out how to connect the ESP8266-12E WiFi Module to my arduino uno. Well, the whole idea/project is: I have some sensors which i have already connected to my arduino and running smoothly (getting my readings correctly so far). I want to use the Blynk App to show the results. the problem that i am facing is that my wifi module isn’t connected. However, when i programmed the ESP8266-12E to connect with the Blynk App it worked on switching on and off some LED lights. Unfortunately, the sensors didn’t work on my ESP8266-12E but i didn’t so furthure as this isn’t my aim. I read loads of conversations and solutions online in various websites with no luck on it. Just to mention i flashed the ESP8266-12E with the Flash Firmware to program it through the Arduino IDE platform. Do i have to flash it again to the default setting to be able to use it as a wifi module for my arduino? Do i need to config the ESP8266-12E with AT commands from the Flash Firmware program and then add AT commands in the Arduino Uno (which i tried with also no luck). Im out of solutions to be honest. 

If anyone in this community know or has good knowledge of this application please give some advises in order to make it work. (if i make this work i can continue to my furthure idea which might be intresting and ill upload the whole project so everyone can make it afterwards)

Thank you in advance

Kind Regards



Its my first time that i post. if i did anything wrong or you need more information about the project let me know

Hi @alex8294,

Thanks for being part of the GitHub Community Forum! We’re glad you’re here.

I wanted to jump in here, and mention that if you don’t get the help you’re looking for from this particular community, you might want to try getting help somewhere that focuses on Arduino. It’s definitely possible another GitHub user might have run into this same issue and can help, but the GitHub Community Forum focuses primarily on topics related to GitHub itself or collaboration on project development and ideas. We want to make sure you’re getting the best support you can, but this forum may not be the right place for this particular topic.

Best of luck!

Thank you @nadiajoyce for the advice. I am also on there now :slight_smile:

However, Just to mention that i flashed the ESP8266-12E with the AT Firmware. I have connected the ESP8266-12E to my wifi network (please see attached image). Now i am trying to load the AT commands for the ESP8266-12E through the arduino but i am facing an error on SoftwareSerial.h which i have it in the library btw. I think that if i include the AT commands in my program that already runs smoothly for my sensors on the arduino i can connect to the Blynk App (just an assumption).
