AI-Thinker has a dev board which contains a relay, buzzer, a temperature/humidity sensor and a number of different colour LEDs, the intention apparently being to provide a simple device to start playing with IoT.
However, the ‘brains’ of the board is not the ESP-8266 on the board but is in fact an STC15L2K32S2 microcontroller which unfortunately is what the relay, buzzer, sensor and LEDs are connected to.
However, you can still make use of the ESP-8266 by isolating it from the STC chip.
