WiFi Station Mode

Station Mode (STA) is what most people would consider the normal mode for a WiFi device. A device uses Station Mode to join a network that already exists, exactly like your smartphone does when its connects to your WiFi network at home

WiFi Station Mode : get request example

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <ESP8266HTTPClient.h>

const char* ssid = "sincgrid";
const char* password = "";

void setup () {


WiFi.begin(ssid, password);

while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {




void loop() {

if (WiFi.status() == WL_CONNECTED) { //Check WiFi connection status

HTTPClient http; //Declare an object of class HTTPClient

http.begin(""); //Specify request destination
int httpCode = http.GET(); //Send the request

if (httpCode > 0) { //Check the returning code

String payload = http.getString(); //Get the request response payload
Serial.println(payload); //Print the response payload


http.end(); //Close connection


delay(10000); //Send a request every 10 seconds
