So I recently built a small IFTT powered button using an ESP8266 for my boys to play with. Tonight during an intense Thunderstorm, I kept getting alerts that it had been pressed. They weren't in the basement at all. Then I realized, giant crack of lightening === SMS message.
Now I don't think this has anything to do with the button mechanism itself, but the shoddy way I hooked it up, and stuffed it into an enclosure. I'm just curious - is this possible? Could some sort of static electricity from a few nearby lightening strikes do something that would send a 'high' signal to the GPIO Pin on my Espee? I had to use a pull up resistor, and I feel like there's probably a few bare-ish wires in there, but nothing touching, or even close enough to 'arc'. Am I crazy?
