TASMOTA Now Supports ESP32 Targets including some Ethernet and Camera Boards

TASMOTA open-source firmware was initially designed for ESP8266 or ESP8285 based Sonoff home automation devices providing an alternative to eWelink firmware with support for MQTT protocol allowing integration with home automation frameworks like Domoticz or openHAB.

It has since then expanded to support hardware from various brands, but until recently you were still limited to products with ESP8266 or ESP8285, and ESP32 was not supported. The good news is that TASMOTA has now gotten experimental support for ESP32 boards and products such as TTGO T-Camera.

Tasmota ESP32

You’ll find basic documentation and well as Tasmota ESP32 (aka Tasmota32) firmware files for LilyGO TTGO T-Camera board, displays, and I2C sensor on Tasmota Github.io website. The ESP32 port is based on Jörg Schüler-Maroldt’s work.

PuceBacoon also found other ESP32 boards in the source code including Olimex ESP32-PoE board in xdrv_82_ethernet.ino file and “AI Thinker” cameras in xdrv_81_webcam.ino.

If you’d like to give it a try you can either download Tasmota32 firmware or built it from scratch following the instructions in the documentation page we linked above. But basically, you’d need to rename platformio_override_sample.ini to platformio_override.ini and uncomment tasmota32 in line #28, then run


in order to create tasmota32.bin file. Finally, flash the image as follows:

I would like to use a open source cam, but I‘m not familier with this kind of work.

@cnx has Lychee HEX ZYNQ7020 FPGA gone under the radar?
