Re: 8610 and open8610win on Windows 7 x64
- I'm regulary using my custom WS8610 software since one year, and it
works very well.
It runs on win7 x64, on a pc with real serial port.
Features include: dump memory, show arbitrary portions of memory, write
memory, a windows service which downloads records and save them in
sqlite format every x hours, plot of temperature and humidity data,
detection of daylight saving time, and more...
See screenshot in files section: WS8610Software.png
If ayone interested I can give source code in C#.

- Hello sgnuf,You're custom version seems very interesing !I would be very interested by receving your compiled SW (I'm also on a W7x64 computer),or the project sourc if you prefer.Warm regards,Alexandre
I'm also working in getting the ESP8266 integrated into the WS8610. Since yesterday I can read out the records and display it via a WebBrowser directly from the ESP8266.
The connection of the ESP8266 is directly to the internal i2c bus and not to the external connector. The power comes from the internal 3.3V of the WS8610.
One of my biggest concerns is the battery consumption. What I want to do is put the ESP8266 in sleep mode and wake up once an hour to upload the data to an internet server. Currently I'm testing how long the batteries last without sleep mode and just waiting for http connection.
