thx for reply
yes dragino HE works like yun I think.
for linkit as the product seems new, there is a little bit less docs. but I will see, price was so interesting that it was too much tempting lol.
I will tell you what I can get...
for fun, I have not presented yet, but I have a board in progress for raildin : 8x relays + 8inputs for yun and I added ethernet connector+hub usb chip
Thanks for your fast reply.
That sounds easy.
And you think that the communication between sensor nodes and Gateway are still possible via wired RS485?
I tried to find an example on this site for sending Information from Gateway to sensor nodes. (via SendMessage ?)
For example I like to Switch on/off an light that is connected to an relay board at my sensor node.
OpenHab2 --> MQTT --> Gateway --> RS485 --> Sensor Node --> Relay Board
Currently I have an working RS485 Connection between my Arduino Uno's with the use from SoftwareSerial library.
During my testings I realized, that the message that I triy to send "Hello" will be sent to the other arduino char by char. Is that true?
Because I tried to raise up an pin on HIGH with "if(msg == "Hello")..." But it doesn't worked.
Will the sendMsg method from the MySensor library handle this out of the box?
Cool project @bsmtdweller
New thread or stay in this doesn't matter much, but for people searching the forum (or their favorite search engine) in the future, I think a new thread with a subject containing "incubator" will be more clear.
I would build it with multiple nodes. Smaller chunks of code, easier wiring, easier to isolate individual parts which helps tremendously when troubleshooting, easer to reuse code for one node in case you (or someone else) want to expand the project later, easier to remove a part if you (or someone else) don't need it.
The non-mysensors code is more important, so I would start with that, but make sure all parameters that you want to be able to change are stored in variables and not hardcoded. Then add the MySensors code to update the values of the variables.
The autonomy will be hard. Normally I would prefer to have all logic in the controller, since a controller has much better ways to program and debug stuff. Not fun to write - and maintain - in C with very rudamentary debugging tools. But as you say, being reliant on having Domoticz working all the time might not be good. Having the system fail gracefully will be a challenge. A start could be to search the forum for MY_TRANSPORT_WAIT_READY_MS to see what others have done. And maybe - to make the system as reliable as possible - you should add everything to a single node instead of splitting it up into multiple nodes.
