Hi @TheoL how is life and hacking?
I got reminded on this topic when I saw that Domoticz now officially supports the MySensors MQTT Gateway
So I was thinking maybe you have some time and material to contribute to the subject, I see there is a lot of people (me first) not really understanding how they could benefit from MQTT protocol. Since you mentioned the presentation/tutorial last time
I tried to desolder the transiver but failed miserably (to much heat in frustration over that the thing would not come loose). So the PCB lost 2 solderpads. This means I cant go on with this hardware. I might toss the Arduino aswell, its solderd on all pins.
I now have a different problem. =)
I now have a Arduino Uno, NRF24L01 and a 1-wire sensor.
The new Node seems to be running as it should but it doesnt get any respons from the gateway.
The Gateway is talking to my old Node with 3 sensors.
A thing that is a bit wierd is that i Updated the GW to version 2.1.0.
I thought that I would loose connection with my old Node that I belive is version 1.6 but those are running fine together.
The new node is the same version as the gateway.
This should probably be a seperate Topic but I feel bad for starting multiple topics so close together.
My personal opinion: when inititial euforia about ESP8266 has ended, people started to realize that the chip is actually not that reliable for solid tasks like home automation.
Besides, it has huge problems with deep sleep and even if they are fixed, the module reboots on every wake-up consuming a lot on start up
I don't know because the battery was old when I started to use it.
Home made pcb. Report every 30 minutes. No cap on battery.
Take a look at this graph. This may be a new battery, don't remember. Has been running since 1/4 2016
First. I don't have any radio interface...
Second, micro pro isn't supported
So, When I don't have any radio sensors I just want to send local attached sensor data to the controller.
Can I configure the library to just send my data? Or can someone describe how much communication are made with the controller. Are there any more messages rather the presentation and actual data that need to be sent? Any "handshake"?
Please let me know if in v.2.1.0 the ACK is enabled by default for NRF24 or if we may enable/disable it (where?).
Also I am interesting about the retain flag management from the gateway toward the mqtt broker: is it possible to manage it? How?
