Hi, I am relatively new to Arduino and I am trying to send an email when a certain RFID tag is scanned.
I have the following components:
-ESP8266 wifi module (from core https://core-electronics.com.au/wifi-module-esp8266-32601.html)
I have had success with the RFID sensor but have struggled to get the ESP8266 to respond. I have got it to connect to wifi by typing AT commands through the serial monitor, but not through a program which automatically does it.
Im starting to question whether it it possible to combine and program both the ESP8266 and RFID sensor at once. It seems to be that to program and connect ESP8266 to wifi, the generic ESP8266 board needs to be selected, but for the RFID sensor the Arduino Uno board is selected. This seemed like a bit of an incompatibility and I just wanted to double check whether it is possible.
Any help will be much appreciated, thanks.
