Node unable to find parent



  • I am trying to setup my first EasyPCB node and I am unable to get them online. Both Gateway and Node logs look OK to me other than the obvious failures. Gateway is configured in OpenHAB.

    @sundberg84 Any thought? I'm using rev10.

    @elcheekytico - hmm, I can not seems to parse your node log - but anyways, it seems like no reply is the major error code here so it seems like its an issue with the radio communication.

    How is your hardware setup. How do you power the node and gateway?
    How did you build the gateway? Is this one starting up correctly?
    I see you define alot of things in the gatewat sketch... seems a bit strange, but maybe thats right. Im not defining that much: https://github.com/sundberg84/HomeAutomation/blob/master/Sketches MySensors RFM69 radio/RFM69gw/Rfm69gw/Rfm69gw.ino

    #define MY_RFM69_CS_PIN 6
    

    I dont think EasyPCB RFM Edition is wired to D6 - do you use this for the gateway or only the node?



  • @ElCheekytico
    I cannot find that you set your NODE_ID in the beginning of the sensor sketch.
    Since OpenHAB does not hand out node-id as far as I know (I do not use the MySensors binding in OpenHAB since I connect over mqtt) you have to set NODE_ID manually.

    Note: The GW does not assign node id either.

    In your sensor sketch, start by adding

    #define MY_NODE_ID   5
    

    for example and see if you are able to connect.

    @sundberg84 The node, Pro Mini 3.3v, is powered by battery, but i guess still by USB while debugging. The gateway has been powered by USB while debugging and a known good power supply. The gateway is Leonardo with Ethernet shield. The gateway is the only one with RFM pin defines

    @bgunnarb I had a test setup with ESP8266 as gateway and node before and didn't remember specifying a node ID as I though OpenHAB would handle it. I found some documentation that said otherwise. That being said, I adding a node id, but still no luck.



  • Ok, Really dumb, I had MY_RFM69_IRQ_PIN connected to the radio's RESET instead of DI00. I was grasping at straws and went to re-do my antenna because they were about 3mm too short when I noticed the mis-wiring. Once I fixed that swapped 3.3v and Ground and troubleshot that for a minute before I realized it. Before trying to fix the antenna I thought maybe since I didn't have a sensor defined the battery level data wasn't enough.The node is now talking to the controller with the MockMySensors sketch.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    @bgunnarb I found that OpenHAB does assign node ID's even though the controller feature table somewhere on this site says it does not.

    I cleared eeprom and went back to my battery sketch and all is well.
