Maybe my power is not stable (arduino reset not helping me, not needed more as U say *EasyIoT library handles ESP freeze* ), i use 5v charger, then 2 1n4148 diodes in series to get 3.3v, maybe i need add a 470uF capacitor.
Now nodes hangs approx. after 12-48 hours of stable work, then esp blue led stop blinking.

You said you gave static IPs to all your nodes, can you successfully ping the node that isn't working?

If you can ping it, you should have a look at network communications by tracing with wireshark (filter by IP or MAC of the module) and see if there is any network comm going on at all.

If you can't ping it - well, repair network connectivity first, then easyIoT will work again. :)

Other possibility, your node was some different node earlier in his life, then you should clear the eeprom so it can re-initialize properly with its new sensors.

Edit - just read that your node is working for a few hours, if this is the case then just forget I replied. :)

OK, then you can at least spot if its a problem with arduino or with ESP8266. YOu can also try to supply the esp8266 directly, connecting it to your voltage regulator "in parallel" with the arduino - the esp8266 can get quite power-hungry at times.

Edit - and you can add a basic "blink" functionality on LED13 to your arduino, just to see if its still running when your node crashes. :)

Someone know how many led strips we can connect in this project? is it depending from power supply or also from mosfet?
thanks

I had similar problem using the dimmer as well. It would connect but not do anything. I found after watch the serial monitor of the arduino, it was getting hung up while pinging. I found if you set your baud rate down to 9600 on all items it works flawlessly. Hope that helps.
