Dear all, I'm a newbie in this regard. In my project, I want to build a system with one server and many nodes. The node can make use of any Wi-Fi network available. They send data wirelessly to the server. The server can be in somewhere else, and the users can only get the permitted data from the server, not directly from the nodes. One more thing, if the nodes can sleep and awake only when the server calls, it will be better.
What confuses me is how the model should look like. Some examples of ESP8266 use the ESP8266 as a web server. Some use ESP8266 as a client and it POST its data to a cloud server (Thingspeak in this case) regularly. Which one is more suitable for my system, I cannot verify.
I'd highly appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thank you in advance

I've had better reliability with esp32 lately.
FYI, MATLAB answers is the preferred location for ThingSpeak Community support.
