Esp8266 deep sleep

#1

Hi all,

need help with deep sleep:

  1. My goal is:
    to put ESP8266 into deep sleep (Wemos D1 mini)

  2. My actions are:
    Successfully build and flash ESP8266, software is running, it send some data to Google IOT cloud, every thing is working including deep sleep functionality.

  3. Issue:
    To be able to wake up from deep sleep with built in RTC, I need to connect pin GPIO16 to RESET pin. If these two pins are connected during power on boot, I think that “factory reset” is performed and I loose all wifi and MQTT settings. conf9.json is “wipe out”.

  4. My expectation & question is:
    How can avoid that?
    Assign a different pin to debug.factory_reset_gpio? How? Currently pin is set to “-1”.
    Where to put wifi and MQTT config? In some vendor config file? How to do this?
    Any guide out there on how to manage/learn this topics?

Thx, Tone
