I have an Amica ESP8266 NodeMCU I want to send some commands to. I have tried sending some commands like 'AT' and 'AT+CWLAP' but I do not get any sort of output for any command I send to it.
Actually I did not send commands the first time I bought it. I flashed it with a
deauther program made by spacehuhn then I erased the chip using the
esptool.py --port /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART erase_flash command multiple times. Then I heard that you can send commands to the NodeMCU using the Serial Monitor using Arduino. So I tried it but no output. So my question is whether I need an Arduino Uno or has the command which I used to erase the factory code of the NodeMCU broken something?
PS. I am a newbie so I don't know much of this stuff.
