    Please assist, I am trying to combine the default straight from the examples, but the DHT give an error on compile

  • @terence-faul I'm probably wrong, but it looks to me like the sensor and the button are on the same pin.

    I'm only learning, so it's probably wise to wait for someone else to chime in.


  • Mod

    @homer you'll need to install the modified DHT library as described on https://www.mysensors.org/build/humidity#example



  • @mfalkvidd said in DHT and DOOR sensor:

    @homer you'll need to install the modified DHT library as described on https://www.mysensors.org/build/humidity#example

    Thanks, but did I spot the issue with the pins correctly?


  • Mod

    @homer yes, they are using the same pin. Move one of them (doesn't matter which) to pin 2. On atmega328, only pins 2 and 3 have full interrupt functionality.



  • Hi

    I have sorted the pins and library problems, but now I get failed to read errors

  • Mod

    @terence-faul said in DHT and DOOR sensor:

    Failed reading temperature from DHT!
    Failed reading humidity from DHT

    This means the DHT library is unable to read from the DHT sensor. Double-check that the DHT gets sufficient power and that it is wired correctly. If you have another DHT sensor, switch sensors and see if that helps.



  • Will give that a go. But if I load the DHT only sketch on the same node it reads fine.

    Could you check my sketch Iā€™m a bit of a noob with code


  • Mod

    @terence-faul the sketch looks good to me. Could you post your "dht only" sketch?



  • I can't believe I spotted am error in the code! I guess I'm starting to get a bit better at this! šŸ˜šŸ˜

    Thanks @terence-faul
    I can't see any problem with the sketches.



  • @Terence-Faul The only thing I can say is that it is generally good practice to put all #include statements at the start of the code, then all the #define statements and finally all other items. At the moment you #define things before you #include the library and maybe that is an issue for the compiler?


  • Mod

    @skywatch while your recommendation is good in general, all MySensors defines (MY_*) must be defined before including MySensors.h. Otherwise the defines won't be available to the library, so the library will need to fall back on the default settings.



  • Thanks so much for the help, what is the next step then? create two sensors?



  • @terence-faul
    comment step by step blocks of code for DOOR switch and try when it start to work.



  • @mfalkvidd Ah yes, I forgot that bit!



  • This post is deleted!


  • Hi @terence-faul did you fix this?

    i'm also trying too merge a door & dht sketch but have not got a clue where too start

    if you have solved this can you post the working sketch



  • How much power are you feeding the sensor? I've had issues when I've fed too little power and it's resolved once I use more power.
