ESPNow vs ESP Mesh vs MESPNow

Postby chaitz » Mon Jan 13, 2020 4:52 pm

Hi,

How similar are ESP Now and ESP Mesh? There have been mentions of ESP Now being low powered devices and while Mesh protocol offers features like - building a network, automatic root node selection, etc. Is ESP Now using mesh APIs to communicate to all the devices in the network? Added to all these there is MESPNow which has more reliability. Pointers to any documentation comparing these protocols will be great!

Hi chaitz,

Actually there is no much connection between these two protocols, only because we think ESP-NOW https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp ... p_now.html can perfectly meet our low power requirements, then we add it into our MDF. For low power devices, using ESP-NOW can save the time to build connection with other device after it's waken up from sleep mode, so we can save more power.
