DIY ESPHome Multisensor - Temp, Humidity, RGB LED, Motion and LUX


I built another multisensor for the bedroom and I decided to change up a few components.  Dive in and take a step by step approach to build it with Otto Winter's ESPHome software this time around as it's been a year since I built the initial Bruh Automation version.  ESPHome is easy to use and configure; No Arduino IDE, no coding, just a config file and the sensors wired up! 

Parts List Used 
NodeMCU
TSL2561 LUX Sensor  or Sensor#2
Jumper Wires
AM312 Motion Sensor
5mm Neopixel or  8mm Neopixel
DHT22 Temp/Humidity

Huge shout out to Bruh Automation for starting me on this ESP8266 journey on the first version of this multisensor a year ago.
