Really like what easyIOT has done so far but I am wondering about a few things.
Would it be possible to have this type of interface running offline using a raspberry pi with a touchscreen and NRF24L01 Nodes? In the sense that if the internet goes down there is a backup method to control each node and change settings regarding them?
To my understanding the RPI acts as a gateway when used with the NRF24L01s to allow you to control them over the internet without needing an esp8266 at every node, at the same time you are able to use the rpi to host your webpage at the moment so why not make it a terminal? At first it seems not cost effective to make the raspberry pi a terminal because we have our cellphones and computer but if the internet is down then we have an issue of not being able to talk to the NRF24L01s anymore. I am fairly new to all of this so if there is already an obvious fallback to interacting with your hardware without internet connection forgive me!
Keep up the great work
