in this all the nodemcu are in both mode receiving and transmitting, if i made 6 nodemcu connected with each other as mesh network to control home appliances, using mac address. suggest how i will start to reach the destination.

  • How will your nodes find / connect to each other? Basically, keep a table of which nodes connect directly to which other nodes, distribute updates to this table among all devices (for example when devices join, leave or links break) and use this table to find the shortest path to the destination node.
