myStrom WiFi Button

This repository contains opensource version of the firmware for myStrom WiFi Buttons. Both Plus and Simple buttons are supported.

How to build the FW from source code

  • Install vagrant

  • Use git to clone the button-open-source project

    git clone <REPO>
    cd <REPO>
  • Build project

    vagrant up
    vagrant ssh -c '/vagrant/ <simple|plus>'

    where simple is build for button light and plus is build for button plus

After successfully build binary files can be found in image path

  • <Simple|Plus>-FLASH-FW-$VERSION.bin is a full flash image
  • <Simple|Plus>-FW-$VERSION-develop.bin is a development build - print many logs on console
  • <Simple|Plus>-FW-$VERSION-release.bin is a release version without printing logs on console

Once the binary FW is available it can be flashed into the device in one of these 2 ways:

  1. OTA firmware upgrade function available in the myStrom Button standard firmware
  2. By connecting UART to the programming port of the myStrom Button

How to flash the firmware into the device using OTA upgrade

To upgrade firmware currently flash in button you can use curl lie follow

curl -F file=@<Simple|Plus>-FW-$VERSION-release.bin http://<button IP>/load

In order for this method to work the button must be in service mode or AP mode.

The off-the shelf myStrom buttons will not accept OTA upgrade to FW that is not released (signed) by myStrom. Therefore in the rom directory there are 2 binary firmwares Plus-FW-2.74.12-release.bin and Simple-FW-2.74.12-release.bin that are signed by myStrom which no loger check myStrom signature during the following OTA firmware upgrade.

How to flash the firmware into the device using UART

There are several tools available that allow flashing new firmware image to ESP8266. In these insrtructions it is assumed that is used. Different tools may require using other options.

To initial flash you can use like follow --chip esp8266 --port <where usb serial adapter is connected> --baud <460800> write_flash --flash_freq keep --flash_mode keep --flash_size 2MB 0x0 <Simple|Plus>-FLASH-FW-$VERSION.bin


Device outputs debug messages to the console port, which can be read by connecting UART. The following boudrates are used for outputting debug messages:

  • 460800 for develop firmware
  • 74880 for release firmware


The device offers HTTP API, description of that API is available at http://<button_ip>/help

You can’t perform that action at this time.
