The sensor is requesting an address from the gateway. Either set an address in yoursensor sketch, or send the appropriate response from the gw to the sensor, to assign an address. Search the forum (i'm on my mobile at the moment so can't write that much)
The relay is now talking directly to the GW. The 2 right-side temp sensors however, are now using the relay node as a repeater
I can live with that (still working as designed) only thing now, is that I think I have a faulty wirering connection to the radio on the relay node. After a while it goes "offline", but the fun part is that if I powercycle it, it's back online.
Changed the sensor code so it only asks for VAR1 four times, then starts doing its job. Sure there are other implications but I was just too impatient.
Still a lot of unknowns in this equation, but at least to my surprise, Domoticz did have some sort of intelligence built-in and seems to automatically start with a fresh counter every day. I was worried I'd have to schedule something in Python to store and subtract "old kwh". Though this makes it even more pressing that I get communication between the gateway and sensor working so I can send back the pulseCount after a reset or some such.
Hi. Thank you all for advice.
I have tried ceramic caps on small 24l01 but no success. I have not tried battery supply yet, but I will when time allows it. I installed 1.4.1 version, but did not see any difference... I continue to use NRF24L01+PA+LNA. Will change to small 24L01 when I achieve success.
For my bench supply I use old PC ATX supply unit. I use 12V. Both Mysensor-units get voltage from 12V to their RAW pin. 12V also goes to my KIS-3R33S modules and 3V3 afterwards via 47uF elco to NRF. In both sketches I use delay(1000) as the first command for the NRF power supply to settle(?!?) then I use gw.begin...
There is something new. If my hand is close to antenna of button/relay-sketch-unit (10cm or closer), the TX/RX is better (i.e. working). No difference if I touch gateway unit. Any idea? Maybe the whole problem is interference...
ADDED: I have tried battery supply. Instead of 12V from old ATX PC supply I have tried 9V battery. There is no difference. Amplified NRF communication is 100% if both LNA units are used. If I mix them, or use only small 24L01+ all I get is "fail".
@bjornhallberg Google a bit. There are multiple posts on the net of Arduino's getting stuck in watchdog reboots because it fires and doesn't get disabled correctly on startup. Some bootloaders handle this situation better then others.
Only question is why the watchdog timer would trip...
Thanks for all the info all
But still have the problem with vera3 on ui7
Cribben, I follow the instructions on the my sensor vera plugin and it comes up with ver 1.3 and no lib #
how did you get the new plugin to load
Any help at all would be welcome as ui7 is not too smooth yet.
