Please I need some help



  • Hello... Hi everybody, sorry how do I modify the code of water meter pulse to transfer water meter readings from one node to another node by using nrf24l01 instead of sending to the gateway? Any help please



  • @Emmanuel-Abraham

    Doing a google search I found this. I have been down that road and it is totally cool. But time consuming and arcane. My problem was connecting to databases, and making the data useful for other devices.

    So for a lot less headache, debugging and tweaking, I chose MySensors, MQTT, VirtualBox and Home Assistant. Don't get me wrong, my choice is still a lot of H,D&T, but less. And I have connectivity.

    You will learn a lot. Embrace.

  • Hello here is an example i use at home: sending value 99 to node n°1

    #define TARGET_NODE 1 // Id node Relay entree et couloir au tableau electrique
    
    MyMessage MsgRelayGlobal(0,V_STATUS); // Message for the Relay actuator on node id 1, sensor 0
    
      // set the Destination of message to the node id of the relay actuator
      MsgRelayGlobal.setDestination(TARGET_NODE);
    
          MsgRelayGlobal.set( (const uint8_t ) 99 );
          Serial.println("Send Message to node 1");
          send(MsgRelayGlobal); // send message to node id 1
    
    

    and here an example of how to deal with the message at target node:

    void MyRelay::Receive(const MyMessage &message) {
      uint8_t payload= 0;
    
      payload= message.getByte();
      if  (message.type==V_STATUS) {
          if (payload==99) {
          // do something
    


  • @hlehoux
    how should be the target code for the sender code below?

    this is the sender pulse water sensor code. i can't see the receiver code.

    thanks sir for the feedback, below is the code for water meter pulse sensor sender but i can't see the receiver code and i don't know where i can get it sir.

  • Hello @Emmanuel-Abraham , i've never used this pulse meter sensor.

    as far as i can see, it's sending 3 different values to the gateaway:

    flow value : send(flowMsg.set(flow, 2));
    pulse count : send(lastCounterMsg.set(pulseCount));
    volume : send(volumeMsg.set(volume, 3));

    so if you want to send say the flow value to another node, let's say node 34
    you should
    flowMsg.setDestination(34);

    and you have to add the
    void receive(const MyMessage &message)
    {
    }
    function in the code of your node n°34



  • @hlehoux

    Thanks sir for the reply, sorry can you help me to write water meter pulse sensor receiver code for the transmitter code above?



  • @Emmanuel-Abraham sorry but i’m not sure i understand what you want to achieve.
    i think you already have a working water pulse sensor but can you explain what you want to do ? why another node ? what do you want this node to do ? what data do you want to send to the node ?

    what is your programming knowledge ?



  • @hlehoux ok for now i need one transmitter and one receiver, on transmitter side will be attached to water meter that will be attached with water pulse sensor to monitor water flow rate, water consumption in Liters or in cubic meters and battery level status and this three data should be sent to a receiver that will include display to display that data from the transmitter sir, the transmitter should operates at least 1 year without replacing the battery. that's what i wanted sir.
