I figured it out: there is a bug in UI7 where when I press the start button for inclusion mode it never stops and the manual stop button doesn't do anything. It took a lot of luup restarts at the right moment to get it to work. I don't know if this is a bug but I tried this on 2 Veras and it did the same so it's not just for me I think....
Try running the "ClearEepromConfig" example sketch from MySensors examples and then try your sketch again. Might be that there is an old "NODE_ID" being used that is conflicting with another node. If you want to use static NODE_ID you should put the following before the MySensors.h include in your sketch:
#define MY_NODE_ID 14
You are also stil missing the
Before the MySensors include that @hek pointed out.
^^ this - I've had this happen before (just last night actually) but i recalled from when it happened in the past, found out it was using a dupe ID, ran eeprom sketch.. good to go now.
It's been a while since I posted here, but openLuup has continued development and is now a really very capable controller with extensive plug-in compatibility with Vera. Latest version always available from GitHub here https://github.com/akbooer/openLuup
I'm using the free version of plot.ly to do plotting from an arduino. Here's a real-time feed, where you can see the effect of last night's irrigation on my soil moisture sensor readings: https://plot.ly/~WhiteRabbit/997
It's very similar to Xively, but I like how I can easily pan and zoom the data. That's helpful as you get a bigger dataset, like this: https://plot.ly/~WhiteRabbit/869/
Plot.ly has demo arduino code on their website you can use as a starting point.
Also, I have read how some people are using mysql to collect their data and graph it. I'd like to learn how to do that too, as I think it would be a good data archiving tool, and would provide additional ways to slice and dice the data.
With these solutions, you don't need to be dependent on owning or using a Vera.
I'd be interested to read about what other solutions people are using.
Im using the serial gateway on u17 and have it working fine. i have the same problem as you when my vera is rebooted or powered off, but found 2 solutions. 1 with the vera on disconnect then reconnect the serial gateway. wait 10seconds refresh the dashboard page. Then go to app/ developer apps/ serial connection. Reset your baud rate to 115200??...
Thansk. I ended up upgrading to the latst UI7 beta. My gateway is now working!!! Let's see how stable it is.
Does the repeater send any sensor data itself? The dashboard "last update" only reflect data coming from the repeater.
No, all it is is a repeater. The only node that could send its signal through it is my doorbell which won't send anything until the doorbell is pressed, so I guess that all makes sense.
I only have one sensor that is communicating all the time, which is my garage door switch which also sends temp values. The funny thing is that it is this switch that is the most reliable and ALWAYS works the instant I ask it to. the relay switches that I have turning operating some lights, that is the only thing I have them doing and there are times that I am having to repeatedly press there button on the dashboard to finally get the relay to work.
fhem is more stable but you need to configure everything manually,
configure 'everything' is not entirely true, in respect to MySensors there's an autocreate-mode in FHEM. You will have to manually configure the gateway (e.g. 'define gw MYSENSOR /dev/ttyUSB0'), then activate autocreate (by pressing the include-button on the gateway, or setting the autocreate-attribute on the gateway device), then restart all MySensor-nodes and fhem will create a MYSENSORS_DEVICE-entry for every Sensor that sends presentation-messages while inclusion-mode is active.
