It works great. I have deployed it in home automation with arduino. So far doesn’t have any issue. Now planning to deploy with my other projects for data logging task.

After proto success maybe you can evaluate the BoM of sourcing from a reliable component vendor and putting into production if the quantity is almost set considering time and expertise.

One of my friend have used in couple of projects. Even for short term, UART always have issues now and then. So, I don’t suggest use it for long term. Instead, you can use ESP8266 modules as standalone directly. Don’t use another processor unless you need to. Use 5–3.3v volt interface chips. ESP8266 is faster than Arduino

Thank you

using Arduino UNO and serial to wifi module you can start your own web server or even host a web page.With even extra storage space available you can start a database .

“What is Serial-to-WiFi? Simply put, it means using serial TX/RX to send and receive Ethernet buffers, and similarly, using serial commands to query and change configurations of the WiFi module. This is quite convenient as it only requires two wires (TX/RX) to communicate between a microcontroller and WiFi, but more importantly, it offloads WiFi-related tasks to the module, allowing the microcontroller code to be very light-weighted.”

for reliability, use genuine Arduino components, experience taught me that I had several clones and brokedown after less than a semester…reliability issue also comes with the surroundings where you put your project, the housing, the type and brand of battery, they all are factors to reliable operation.
