I bought a couple of wemos D1’s from China. I was hoping for easier to use ESP8266. And they are.
I still had a few snags though. First was that the drivers for the D1 for Mac was to old on the wemos wiki. Secondly 57600 was the correct speed setting for getting me up and running.
Also if you want to get the WeMos D1 to work with
you need to connect D2 to Reset, and then it works.
Took me some time to figure above things out, so I thought I’d better document them here for the search engines to find.
