Arduino Nano Esp8266 Lokal Clien Tutorial

In this project you’ll create a standalone web server with an ESP8266 that can toggle two LEDs using Arduino IDE. This ESP8266 Web Server is mobile responsive and it can be accessed with any device that as a browser in your local network.

For a more in-depth les on how to create a web server, and explanation of the code, read this post ESP8266 Web Server Step-by-step

If you want to learn more about the ESP8266 module, first read my Getting Started Guide for the ESP8266 WiFi Module.

If you like the ESP and you want to do more projects you can read my eBook Home Automation Using ESP8266.

Let’s get started!

First, watch the video kursus

Uploading the ESP8266 code

Having the ESP8266 add-on for the Arduino IDE installed (How to Install the ESP8266 Board in Arduino IDE), go to
and select “Generic ESP8266 Module”.

Copy the sketch below to your Arduino IDE. Replace the SSID and password with your own network credentials.

        const char* ssid = "REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_SSID"; const char* password = "REPLACE_WITH_YOUR_PASSWORD";

After modifying the sketch upload it to your ESP8266 (If you can’t upload code to your ESP8266, read this troubleshooting guide).

Upload code to ESP8266-01

If you’re using an ESP8266-01, you need an FTDI programmer to upload the code. Wire the ESP8266 to the FTDI programmer as shown in the following schematic diagram.

Flashing Firmware - FTDI Programmer

ESP8266 IP Address

Open the Arduino serial monitor at a baud rate of 115200.

  • If you’re using ESP8266-01, connect GPIO 0 to VCC and reset your board.
  • If you’re using ESP8266-12E, just press the RESET button.

After a few seconds, the ESP8266 IP address should appear.

Parts Required

Here’s the hardware that you need to complete this project:

  • ESP8266 – read Best ESP8266 Wi-Fi Development Boards
  • 2x LED
  • 2x 330 Ohm resistor (220 Ohm or other values also work)
  • Breadboard
  • Jumper wires

If you’re using an ESP8266-01, you need an FTDI programmer to upload code.

You can use the preceding links or go directly to to find all the parts for your projects at the best price!

Final Circuit

Follow the next schematic diagram to build the circuit you’ll control. One LED connected to
GPIO 4(D2) and another connected to
GPIO 5(D1).

If you’re using the ESP8266-01, use the following schematic tabulasi as a reference, but you need change the GPIOs assignment in the code (to
GPIO 0).



For the final demonstration open any browser from a device that is connected to the same router that your ESP8266 is. Then, type the ESP8266 IP address and click Enter!

Now , press the buttons in your web server to control the ESP8266 GPIOs.
