pilight nano usb over Wifi for routers without USB port
Hi everybody,

this project contains so many cool things such as port to OpenWRT, pilight Nano USB etc. etc. etc.

While I spent a big part of this week-end to set up my router with OpenWRT and pilight I thought "hmmm... how would you do that on a router without USB port?"

I have been DIY'ing a couple of months ago with arduino minis (i.e. the arduino without UART) and the ESP8266 WIFI chip while pimping my old AR.Drone to use a real radio remote and remote-controlling my heating system with ebusd.

My first idea (which should work "off the shelf") was to maybe build a nano usb with an arduino mini and instead of a UART hook it up to an ESP8266 running ser2net which connects to the network using WIFI. On the client run something like socat to redirect a (virtual) comport to the net socket ser2net is listening on.

But then I thought - hey, why not port the pilight nano usb implementation directly to the ESP8266 and thus have a super mini thumbnail-like 433 MHz receiver connecting directly to WIFI?

Anybody interested in kicking this off? Any caveats you could think off or why it would possibly not work?

Just collecting ideas and want to see if there is demand before I start putting time into this... Anybody want to contribute?
