I’d be interested in what speeds other people are getting on commands issued to particle boards.
I built a lamp on a particle board. It uses 2 neopixel rings (RGBW), which can get controlled using a remote (openhab, so I can control from android, my pebble watch, and some other remotes)
It worked nicely BUT wow was it slow. I was seeing about 6second delays between telling the lamp to turn on, and it actually turning on.
I re-jigged it to use cloudMQTT instead and it’s much faster (less than 1 second). It could be on local mosquitto but I’m avoiding running a server right now.
