So i want to build a BIG lighting installation. The idea is to have about 50 esp-01 with their own small led. They would not be wired and not in a wifi network. So i looked at painless mesh and they have a way of addressing each mesh node with mqtt (ie there are topics for each node)
Now the lights on each node are small and do not need controlling (in wled sense), so i was thinking that in this setup a Wled master could control the mesh in the same way it would otherwise control a matrix.
I am a coder, and am confident that i could get the mesh set up and mqtt side working. But i do not know wled enough to say if i am barking up the wrong tree.
Has anybody tried this?
Could somebody with wled understanding say if this sounds feasible, possibly give me a starting point?
And off course if any maintainer reading this would be interested in getting mesh functionality into wled, i would be happy to code under guidance.
Thanks for the great code
