Hi @tbowmo, do you mind to explain a bit about the design? I'm interested with your design.
I will use these steps for removing voltage regulator, http://goo.gl/CsZaNg
So the design will be battery > external step up regulator (http://goo.gl/PFt99R - to stabilize 3.3v) > vcc pin ?
with these then I can use my first post design?
@kontrollable Wow.. the lead times in this conversation.. I saw your answer now. I had about a million other projects going on and havn't taken on mysensors yet. I had some problems with the radio and was about to switch to rfm69, but never got around to it.
Now I started thinking about it again. But, I actually am thinking somewhat in the line of discontinuing mysensors network. It is to much, hacks and tricks, and I forget everything in between sessions. In all the years I have not yet one single mysensors device running. I would love to see more of your set up, maybe it could sway me to try it for the radiator relay setup.
I finally received the boards from the manufacturer(big thanks to @Seeed-Fusion). I manage to assemble one board by soldering the components and such and...it WORKS(including OTA)! I will post the instructions on openhardware.io project page.
Hi @talhatec ,
The remote controls work well. 4 months ago I installed a new battery and from time to time I press the button to check if they continue with battery, they sleep correctly.
I remain pending to change the RF antenna for a better one and to improve some failures in the connectors of the battery that at the moment are very fragile (the pad has little copper).
The casing can be purchased online
For now the project is stopped, I want to test the Aqara sensors (I buy them this week), in any case the domotics is now my lowest priority.
@yury said in Wall Socket Insertable Node:
Looks cool! Do you have experience with capacities switches? I did not play much with them. afraid to use close to AC interference though...
You need to use a capacitive IC with active shielding, basically you have an extra electrode around your touch electrode and the touch IC will compare capacitive change of the touch electrode with capacitive change from the shield electrode. If the change is due to electrical interference then both electrodes will be changed in a similar way and the IC will not trigger.
