Of course you could use rpi as gateway, but as personal advice I'd suggest to get some mini pro as sensor nodes and keep the Uno as the gateway or the prototype platform. The most flexible solution would be to make an mqtt ethernet gateway and use rpi as mqtt broker and controller with openhab or whatever else you like, since the mqtt in the middle allows also to have multiple controllers. I also wanted to try openhab and tried openhabian but it turned out to be too complicated, so I moved to domoticz and it was much easier to put things together.
@NeverDie said in Waterproofing by embedding in epoxy:
@Dreded I'm not sure about the hot glue part of it, but you're right: I notice the heat shrink tubing with the glue on the inside is advertised as "marine grade". Perhaps you could simply clamp the ends when the glue is still hot to make a "marine grade" seal.
thats what I was meaning, I put the hot glue in and clamp it with a vice while it cools usually leave an extra 2" of heatshrink tubing and cut it off after the clamping to a reasonable length, I figure the vices teath leaving bumpy marks might help the seal... for something I just am putting out in the weather I often just squish it by hand depnding on the size of it.
I have made lit up pool toys this way and no issues so far with over a year of kids tossing them about.
@rmh said in EV Charger (type 2) with RESTful API and Wifi recommendations?:
@รอเร-อ btw Normal single phase type 2 charging on an EV is 32a = 7 Kw. If your ev can charge at 22Kw, then it will need a 3 phase supply. OpenEVSE can do this but you will need to put a 3 phase contactor in it.
Thanks a lot. That seems to be exactly what I'm looking for. I didn't order the kit though. I ordered the EmonEVSE WiFi Connected EV Charging Station IEC 60947-5 (Type-2)
I'm very excited to get started. Ohh... I'll need an EV too... ha ha
@timmy If you are referring to the Google assistant, you need to open the app, tap the compass icon in the Explore section, enter Settings, scroll to Services, tap Home Control, and scroll until you find the selection for your lights. But I'm not even sure what you are talking about, I might be giving you the wrong directions here.
