@joaoabs A realy usually has only 2 states, on and off. So I would use S-BINARY and V_STATUS every time.
A changeover realy also has 2 states so again I would go for binary and status.
Light_Level is more suited to getting light levels from a sensor or sending a light level to a dimmable light.
@canique no, the purpose of the node is to know when the door is locked by the bolt, not only closed. What you see are simply 2 battery springs and the bolt of the lock closes the contact.
I can move the node more upwards the door frame (and I will do it if the radio connection is still not reliable with the repeater).
In order to preserve domestic peace, I placed the nodes in the door frame, invisible when the door is closed: no visible dangling wires and no visible boxes.
Maybe an idea for a MK3 version of your board as wide as the RFM69HW
And of course you should know that the comunication is via "serial protocol", which is defined here:
@Guillermo-Schimmel said in Selecting a Controller:
@3nibble https://pypi.org/project/pymysensors/ is a nice starting point.
@tssk said in Building a MQTT Gateway:
@frits Cool! So you already had this?
no, not as a webserver. I only print some node information to Serial.
Webserver seems to work and not to interfere with mysensors core. My (MQTT-)Gateway doesn't act as a server, so there's only one listener. But multiple listeners (webserver on port 80 and Ethernet Gateway on port 5003 for example) should also be possible. I've not tested this though.
@Diazovitch69 I have a hard time zooming in the provided wiring, so I can't check it. But as evb says, it looks like the radio isn't connected right. So either it's not wired correctly or you could have a broken radio.
The things I normally do when I encounter this, is first check and double check the wiring. I also measure the individual cables in the dupont cable. It happened to me once I had bought a broken cable. Or another problem I once had, was that the power and ground rail of the bread board weren't connected from the left to the right section. Some broad boards have them connected others don't have that so you need to connect them in the middle.
I even got a free arduino once. Because I was convinced everything was correct so I contacted the supplier and he send me a new Arduino. I replaced it and still the same problem lol. Then I measured and found the cause.
If you're sure the wiring is correct. I'd try out another radio. Be sure that power radio with 5v and not 3.3V.
