If you're unfamiliar with how to supply power to the ESP32 and other components, you can find guidance in the following tutorial: How to Power ESP32.

ESP32 Code - Button Controls Servo Motor

Why need to debounce for the button? ⇒ see ESP32 - Button Debounce tutorial

Quick Instructions

  • If this is the first time you use ESP32, see how to setup environment for ESP32 on Arduino IDE.
  • Install ezButton library. See How To
  • Click to the Libraries icon on the left bar of the Arduino IDE.
  • Type ServoESP32 on the search box, then look for the servo library by Jaroslav Paral. Please be aware that both version 1.1.1 and 1.1.0 are affected by bugs. Kindly choose a different version.
  • Click Install button to install servo motor library for ESP32.
ESP32 servo motor library
  • Copy the above code and paste it to Arduino IDE.
  • Compile and upload code to ESP32 board by clicking Upload button on Arduino IDE
  • Press the button several times
  • See the servo motor's rotation
