A very beginner needs help - MySensors and OpenHab !



  • Hi all,
    First off all i want you to know that i am a very beginner in this field as probably some of the people here on this community and not only.
    I'm struggling for more than 1 month to get my Openhab server (installed on my laptop) up and running well, showing me my DHT11 temp and humid. and a few relays with buttons actuators but it was impossible reading a lot of topics and trying a lot of examples. I was following this thread here http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/655/serial-gateway-connection-to-openhab/68 but i cant make it work.
    Can anyone here in this big community please share with us an example of Openhab server (items, rules, sitemap) and a Serial or Ethernet gateway with the Arduino code for the node point for a DHT sensor and a few relays with button actuators? as for example @l153 wrote this nice Openhab server on the same link above.

    To share your work doesn't mean you work for some other lazy geeks who just wait something ready to go.
    Sharing your knowledge means you help a novice understand the principle and maybe to develop his own project.

    Thanks for understanding and hopping to see my "small home automation dream" come true.

    Best regards.

    Hi ewgor,

    Perhaps post about what you cant get working?
    Can you get your sensors/actuators communicating to a mysensors gateway?
    Or is it that you are having trouble getting OpenHab to work/see your mysensors gateway?



  • Hi gregl,
    Thanks for reply. As i said above, i was following @TimO example from here http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/655/serial-gateway-connection-to-openhab/68 where i found the serial gateway and the node Arduino sketches and now i can display the temp and humid with this OpenHab configuration from here http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/1194/tutorial-openhab-with-serial-gateway.
    The problem is that I don't know how to make a Arduino sketch or some rules in OpenHab, I'm just trying to combine some different parts written by others and to see if its working or not.

    At this point there are 2 things that i would like to add:

    1. some rules in the OpenHab configuration for 2 switches and the Arduino sketch part for these switches. The switches must be operated from the physical buttons too and i saw here on MySensors that it can be done with this relay with button actuators.
    2. some rules for a SCT sensor and the Arduino sketch. I tried to adapt the temp and humid rules for the SCT sensor but i don't know if its ok like this, please see bellow. The bold rules are adapted by me:
      "if(msgType == 1 ){
      if (subType == V_TEMP){
      postUpdate(sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";"), msg)
      println ("Temp item: " + sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";") + " temp: " + msg )
      }
      if (subType == V_HUM){
      postUpdate(sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";"), msg)
      println ("Hum item: " + sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";") + " hum: " + msg )
      }
      if (subType == V_ELEC){
      postUpdate(sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";"), msg)
      println ("Elec item: " + sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";") + " elec: " + msg )
      }

      } "
      Thanks for any reply.


  • Hi All,

     * DESCRIPTION
     * The ArduinoGateway prints data received from sensors on the serial link. 
     * The gateway accepts input on seral which will be sent out on radio network.
     *
     * The GW code is designed for Arduino Nano 328p / 16MHz
     *
     * Wire connections (OPTIONAL):
     * - Inclusion button should be connected between digital pin 3 and GND
     * - RX/TX/ERR leds need to be connected between +5V (anode) and digital ping 6/5/4 with resistor 270-330R in a series
     *
     * LEDs (OPTIONAL):
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error

            inputString[inputPos] = inChar;
            inputPos++;
          }
        } else {
           // Incoming message too long. Throw away 
            inputPos = 0;
        }
      }
    }
    

    For the moment only the temp and humidity are displayed on the localhost.

    I would kindly ask somebody who can help me where or what do i have to modify to see this SCT-013-000 work (i copied already the emon addon file in the addons folder) and the two switches too!

    As i said on the beginning of this topic, there are people who try to make it work but its impossible without your help here.

    Thanks for any advice.



  • After a few minutes the dht11 stoper to work or it didn't work from the beginning. I think maybe it didn't refresh well and i was still seeing the old values!
    Any suggestion will be kindly appreciated.
    Ps: all the connection between nrf and arduino are ok!

    Take a closer look at the table with the mappings in the rule file and the corresponding node and child ids in the sketch. I'm on my mobile so I'm only able to give you that hint.


  • Hero Member

    Let's begin with the sketch. You have to change the child ids. Because in your sketch you present TEMP and Relay with child id 1, that will confuse at least the controller. 🙂

    // This example will remember relay state even after power failure.

        }
        gw.send(msgTemp.set(temperature, 1));
        Serial.print("T: ");
        Serial.println(temperature);
      }
    }
    
    void incomingMessage(const MyMessage &message) {
      // We only expect one type of message from controller. But we better check anyway.
      if (message.type==V_LIGHT) {
         // Change relay state
         digitalWrite(message.sensor-1+RELAY_1, message.getBool()?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF);
         // Store state in eeprom
         gw.saveState(message.sensor, message.getBool());

         Serial.print("Incoming change for sensor:");
         Serial.print(message.sensor);
         Serial.print(", New status: ");
         Serial.println(message.getBool());
       } 
    }
    

    So the mappings in the rules file should look something like

    // Mappings
    var HashMap<String, String> sensorToItemsMap = newLinkedHashMap(
        "101;0;"            -> "livingHum01",    // looks good
        "livingHum01"       -> "101;0;",
        "101;5;"            -> "livingKwh01",  // CHILD_ID_KWH == 5 and in the sitemaps it is called livingKwh01!!
        "livingKwh01"       -> "101;5;",
        "101;3;"            -> "livingTemp01", 
        "livingTemp01"      -> "101;3;"
        "101;1;"            -> "lightBar01",
        "lightBar01"        -> "101;1;",
        "101;2;"            -> "lightKitchenCabinet01", 
        "lightKitchenCabinet01" -> "101;2;",
    )
    

    sitemap:

    {
      Frame label="Dormitor" {
        Text item=livingTemp01
        Text item=livingHum01
        Text item=livingKwh01
      }
       Frame label="Lights" {
            Group item=kLights label="Lights" {
                Switch item=lightBar01 label="Bar Lights"
                Switch item=lightKitchenCabinet01 label="Cabinet Lights"
            }
        }
    

    In the items file you need to define those switches like

    Switch           lightBar01                          "Bar Lights"
    Switch           lightKitchenCabinet01               "Cabinet Lights"
    

    In the rules there is a typo:

    if (subType == V_KWH){
                        postUpdate(sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";"), msg)
                        println ("Kwh item: " + sensorToItemsMap.get( nodeId + ";" + childId + ";") + " kwh: " + msg )
                        }
    

    So, that are some fixes to start with! 😉



  • Thanks TimO, i didn't have time today to check your example but yesterday i deleted everything and started all over again following your example. During the tests I saw that if I add some new addresses in the hash map the local host is not refreshing anymore and in the server side I still see the updates but is just the hum or temp value without any label like livingTemp01 Temp: 31as it is if I delete the new addresses for the kWh like "101;18;" ->"livingkwh01".
    Today il try your example from above and hopefully it will work 🙂
    Many thanks and sorry for any spell mistakes, this time I'm writing on my phone too 🙂
    Have a nice day!



  • I have tested your example (above) and its not working. After i deleted all in the hashmap in the rule file, i can say its not refreshing the values on the localhost but i still can see them in the server monitor:
    This is how it shows if i have only the temp and hum in the hashmap:

    2015-07-22 19:58:11.891 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - livingTemp01
    state updated to 33.0
    Temp item: livingTemp01 temp: 33.0
    

    If i add another address in the hashmap like this:

    "101;18;"            -> "livingKwh18",  // CHILD_ID_KWH == 18 changed in the sketch too!
    "livingKwh18"        -> "101;18;",
    

    the local host is freezing but the server is still updating the values only that this time in a different way:

    2015-07-22 20:08:53.140 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - Arduino state
     updated to 0;0;3;0;9;read: 101-101-0 s=3,c=1,t=0,pt=7,l=5:33.0
    101;3;1;0;0;33.0
    

    As for the Kwh i see something in the server side which i suppose is the Kwh value (don't have the CT sensor connected yet) but it doesn't appear in the localhost!
    This is what it shows and i suppose the last value 0,6 is the value read on Arduino analog pin A0:

    2015-07-22 20:12:38.319 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - Arduino state
     updated to 0;0;3;0;9;read: 101-101-0 s=17,c=1,t=17,pt=7,l=5:607246.3
    101;17;1;0;17;607246.3
    0;0;3;0;9;read: 101-101-0 s=18,c=1,t=18,pt=7,l=5:0.6
    101;18;1;0;18;0.6
    

    Regarding the two switches, they are still dead after i added the items you gave me in the items file and i get this error on the server when i switch on /off any of them but it seems its still sending the command:

    2015-07-22 20:46:43.839 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - lightKitchenC

    which i suppose is related to the sitemap, items and the rule files and here i still can work until i lose the errors but the problem is (i think !) in the Arduino sketch because i dont think they match with that code I have right now from you, speaking about the same sketch you posted here http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/655/serial-gateway-connection-to-openhab/3.
    Any chance to make it work? 😞😢 😩


  • Hero Member

    Remove the "item=kLights" that makes no sense and produces the error you posted.

    {
      Frame label="Dormitor" {
        Text item=livingTemp01
        Text item=livingHum01
        Text item=livingKwh01
      }
       Frame label="Lights" {
            Group label="Lights" {
                Switch item=lightBar01 label="Bar Lights"
                Switch item=lightKitchenCabinet01 label="Cabinet Lights"
            }
        }
    

    The update of the Temperature looks good, can't figure out, why the value is not shown in on the webpage.

    Here is my output :

    Temp item: workTemp01 temp: 25.4
    2015-07-22 21:53:14.902 [INFO ] [runtime.busevents             ] - workTemp01 state updated to 25.4
    

    Did you refresh the webpage (silly question I know)?

    Regarding the switches:

    rule "lightBar04 Switch Rule"
        when
            Item lightBar04 changed
        then
            switchOperation.apply(lightBar04, Arduino, sensorToItemsMap.get("lightBar04"), V_LIGHT)         
    end 
    

    Change that to:

    rule "Light"
            when
                    Item lightBar01 received update
            then
                   if(receivedCommand == ON) {
                sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n")
            }
            if(receivedCommand == OFF) {
               sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;0\n")
            }
    end
    

    Let's see what works now. 😉



  • Hi TimO,
    There is no chance to make it work. The server is ok, receive info from both sides, from web switches (ok now with that stupid klight removed) and from sensors too one by one (it can be seeing by addresses: s0, s3, s4, s5) but the webpage (on localhost) is frozen, cant understand why!
    Could you please test this files on your pc? bellow are the files modified according to your indications:
    Openhab items, rules, sitemap:

  • About the sensors, if i add another address in the hashmap other than temp and hum the web freezes, if i leave only the temp and hum, the web page can be refreshed and will display the temp and hum values. In the mean time my server receive info as i said previously from both sides (webpage and sensors) but is not sending them forward.
    have anyone made it with relay with button actuators and openhab? the task would be to switch on/off the relay from webpage and button and to get the status on the web page even if the relay is operated from that physical button.

    About the CT sensor, in the server monitor i get this msg:

    2015-07-24 13:34:09.614 [WARN ] [.model.script.actions.BusEvent] - Item 'null' does not exist.
    Watt item: null watt: 621372.3 2015-07-24 13:34:13.805 [WARN ] [.model.script.actions.BusEvent] - Item 'null' does not exist. Kwh item: null kwh: 0.6
    

    I guess this "null" is because i didnt connect yet the CT sensor? Can anyone who have exp. with this kind of sensor help me? my Openhab config are above.
    Thanks for any help.

  • With this rule:

            when
                    Item lightBar01 received update
            then

                sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n")
            }
            if(receivedCommand == OFF) {
               sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;0\n")
            }
    end
    

    i get this error:

  • Help please.



  • can anyone try my example above and tell me if it is working or not? speaking to hero members, not to those as me! Common people, please help us, we are not stealing your jobs or future, we just want to light a simple led on/off!
    thanks to all intelligent people here 😛

    People might not have run into the same problems as you're having you know. And the amount of community members running OpenHab+MQTT isn't that huge I guess. So even if many here would like to help you we don't have the time or possibility to re-create your environment.

    A good approach to isolate the problem (shaving off as much as much irrelevant stuff as possible). You know that the wireless communication is working... so something must be wrong in the rules or you've found some kind of bug in OpenHab.

    You don't need CTs to test sending in a value from the Arduino.. Just set and send any value using the API to test it. Mocking is a good approach when testing.



  • @hek thanks for your replay! i'm not using OpenHab+MQTT but the serial gateway communication explained by @TimO and i got the errors shown above so my questions are point by point. i tried different ways to see if i can get loose of the errors but no chance and than i came here asking for help.
    My idea was if somebody have the needed time to test my config (opehab + arduino) and to tell me if is working on their pc or not and maybe some instructions where or what needs to be changed, modified deleted or added.
    I count on experienced people who can see quikly where is the mistake and who could give me useful information as for example @TimO did at one point.

    Once again, besides hum and temp that works at this hour i need to add a few buttons who could turn a light on/of from openhab and from physiscal buttons too and to understand why if i add a new device as CT sensor its not displaying anymore the rest of the devices.
    Thanks for understanding.


  • Hero Member

    Hi @ewgor ,

    could you make your whole configuration available for download? It is easier for us to help you to find the error.



  • @TimO what do you mean by " configuration available for download"? i'm combining different Arduino sketches found here on the site and i'm trying to find a way to match them with the Openhab configuration found here too! All my files are above but right now i'm trying to combine the Arduino sketch from above with this one for relay with button actuator from here http://www.mysensors.org/build/relay and its very difficult. couldn't do it today, maybe tomorrow 😞
    As a conclusion because i don't know if i was very clear: Could anyone help me combine Arduino sketch from above with the one for relay with button actuator for 2 (two relays and two buttons) devices and to check the Openhab config which are above too? As i already said, today o tried all day long to combine them but cant lose the errors, it cant compile 😞

    Hoping for an answer ...

    but the LED is not switching on or off.
    On the other hand when pressing the physical button on / off the LED is working but the switch in Openhab is not moving or refreshing.

    i'm trying to take it easy! please help masters 🙂



  • Update:
    i noticed that if i leave only the light Openhab config as bellow, when pressing the physical button on my breadboard it turns the led on or off and it changes the Openhab switch state from on to off and vice-versa but it doesn't work from Openhab to Arduino.

    an item or type.
    

    If i delete the rule "light" (the last part of rule file) the server doesn't show the error and the server still works so pressing the physical button it turns on or off the LED and it change the Openhab switch from on to off but from Openhab to Arduino, the same, still not communicating, not turning any LED!
    This is how the server looks if i delete the rule "light" and i press the physical button on my breadboard:

    ate updated to OFF
    Light Item: lightBar01 Light: OFF
    

    and switching from Openhab but without changing the LED real state:

    This makes sens and the problem i know is on the rule file. Now is there anyone who can help me make this work from Openhab to Arduino too? thanks all for your kindness 🙂

    PS: using the Arduino relay with button actuator sketch on which i added the node id 101 and the pins 48,49 for my Arduino mega.



  • No body? Any idea?

    Found it!

    "received command" not "received update"!

    rule "Light"
            when
                    Item lightBar01 received command
            then
                   if(receivedCommand == ON) {
                sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n")
            }
            if(receivedCommand == OFF) {
               sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;0\n")
            }
    end
    
    


  • @TimO yuhuuuuuuu super! finally the damn led works ! thanks @TimO one small step for mankind but a huge step for me 🙂



  • Hi,
    @TimO finally I managed to add the dht 11 too and it works fine. Can you please tell me what to change in the rule file to add more buttons (same as this one that works)? I tried to change some parts of the light address but it doesn't work.
    I would like to add a normal button too (not like a switch) with a door symbol like door open or close for my exit door and to change its status from blue to red when you push the button.

    Thank you for the help you gave me by now!
    All the best!



  • Hi All,

    Can anyone please tell me if I want to add a few more buttons (same as this one with relay with button actuator) what should i change in the Openhab rules and in the Arduino sketch too? can it be done as the relay actuator example ?

    #define RELAY_1  3  // Arduino Digital I/O pin number for first relay (second on pin+1 etc)
    

    i mean first relay is connected to pin 3 and the next relay to pin 3+1=4, pin 4+1=5 and so on and the buttons pins to be alocated in the same way? is there any way to do it like this but for the relay with button actuator example?

    In the Openhab rules i tried to modify as i said above some of the addresses of the commands on or off from here:

    sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n")
    

    except the last numbers which i understand are like 1 for ON and 0 for OFF but it didn't work.

    The last thing that i would like to add is related only to Openhab if ill get an answer or a suggestion to my ask here above is a normal button (not like a slider) to control an electrical strike through a relay so when pressed once door open for 5 seconds or more and than close again. I know that here are more to discuss because maybe the door its not gonna be psychically closed but the Openhab status could show that the door is closed but this can be solved with a magnetic contact (i think) that can be added so the Openhab rules should be made like so: if the magnetic contact is connected than the door is closed and locked, else the door is open / unlocked even the electrical strike is closed until the magnetic contact will be connected! or to close the electrical strike only after the magnetic contact is closed.
    OH too much talking, I know this is maybe too much for me but theoretical speaking I know how to make it and I think i know how to set up the connection but physically is impossible because of missing knowledge in programming Arduino or Openhab!

    Lets take it one by one: Can anyone help me with first part of my request, how to add a few more buttons same as the only one working now?

    Thanks all



  • People i see that this post was seen by more than 2k times but nobody is answering! How is this possible? Nobody knows how to do it or everybody enjoy watching a noob asking for help? Common people at least off topic let's say hi each other!


  • Admin

    Hey @ewgor, tone it down a bit. You won't get any answers by acting aggressive.

    It could be as simple as no-one has the the answer and you got to find a solution yourself.



  • @hek thanks for the answer. At least now i know i'm not alone :). Anyhow as far as i've seen by now only @TimO was the only one who answered me and gave me some info. It is possible that non of the heros, admins or other kind of this forum members to have a suggestion for me?
    Sorry if i was aggressive again!

    Good help 🙂

    Well, the short answer for this is yes. It depends on your sketch. The loop with pin+1 is just a short notation.

    I would suggest to start with the simple sketch with one button here: http://www.mysensors.org/build/binary

    Give the node a static id, change items, rules and sitemap in OH.

    You have to change V_TRIPPED to V_LIGHT:

    // Change to V_LIGHT if you use S_LIGHT in presentation below
    MyMessage msg(CHILD_ID,V_TRIPPED);
    

    So the OH rule with V_LIGHT will match and the item state is changed, when the button is pressed.



  • Oh TimO i thought i'll never see you again here 🙂 thanks for the answer.
    I'm using the RelayWithButtonActuator example on which i added the humidity and temperature part and its working well. I choose this example because in this way i can get in real time the light status in Openhab even the light is turned ON / OFF from physical button on the breadboard or from the Openhab button.
    The Openhab rules are already made with the V_LIGHT command not the V_TRIPPED.

    I cant figure out what to add in the Arduino sketch to add more relays and more buttons and to make it work in the setup or loop functions. Than, on the Openhab rules i tried to copy the only light rule i have right now and to change some of the numbers in the

    sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n") 
    

    but its not working 😞

    If i'll get at least 5 buttons and 5 relays working in this way it would be perfect.

    Looking for any answer.



  • Hello? TimO? 🙂 are you there?

    Well, there are many approaches and I would go the easiest (but not the most elegant) way.

    Double everything for every additional button / relay. If that works for two/three buttons/relays use arrays (like in the relay example sketch).

    #include <MySensor.h>
    #include <SPI.h>
    #include <Bounce2.h>
    
    #define RELAY_PIN  4  // Arduino Digital I/O pin number for relay 
    #define RELAY_PIN2 5 ######## ADD THAT ######
    #define BUTTON_PIN  3  // Arduino Digital I/O pin number for button 
    #define BUTTON_PIN2 6 ######## ADD THAT ######
    #define CHILD_ID 1   // Id of the sensor child
    #define CHILD_ID2 2 ######## ADD THAT ######
    #define RELAY_ON 1
    #define RELAY_OFF 0
    
    Bounce debouncer = Bounce(); 
    Bounce debouncer2 = Bounce(); ######## ADD THAT ######
    int oldValue=0;
    int oldValue2=0; ######## ADD THAT ######
    bool state;
    bool state2; ######## ADD THAT ######
    MySensor gw;
    MyMessage msg(CHILD_ID,V_LIGHT);
    MyMessage msg2(CHILD_ID2,V_LIGHT); ######## ADD THAT ######
    
    void setup()  
    {  
      gw.begin(incomingMessage, AUTO, true);
    
      // Send the sketch version information to the gateway and Controller
      gw.sendSketchInfo("Relay & Button", "1.0");
    
     // Setup the button
      pinMode(BUTTON_PIN,INPUT);
      pinMode(BUTTON_PIN2,INPUT); ######## ADD THAT ######
      // Activate internal pull-up
      digitalWrite(BUTTON_PIN,HIGH);
      digitalWrite(BUTTON_PIN2,HIGH); ######## ADD THAT ######
      
      // After setting up the button, setup debouncer
      debouncer.attach(BUTTON_PIN);
      debouncer2.attach(BUTTON_PIN2); ######## ADD THAT ######
      debouncer.interval(5);
      debounder2.interval(5);######## ADD THAT ######
    
      // Register all sensors to gw (they will be created as child devices)
      gw.present(CHILD_ID, S_LIGHT);
      gw.present(CHILD_ID2,S_LIGHT);######## ADD THAT ######
    
      // Make sure relays are off when starting up
      digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN, RELAY_OFF);
      digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN2,RELAY_OFF); ######## ADD THAT ######
      // Then set relay pins in output mode
      pinMode(RELAY_PIN, OUTPUT);
      pinMode(RELAY_PIN2, OUTPUT); ######## ADD THAT ######   
          
      // Set relay to last known state (using eeprom storage) 
      state = gw.loadState(CHILD_ID);
      state2 = gw.loadState(CHILD_ID2); ######## ADD THAT ######
      digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN, state?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF);
      digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN2, state2?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF); ######## ADD THAT ######
    }
    
    
    /*
    *  Example on how to asynchronously check for new messages from gw
    */
    void loop() 
    {
      gw.process();
      debouncer.update();
      debounder2.update(); ######## ADD THAT ######
    
      // Get the update value
      int value = debouncer.read();
      if (value != oldValue && value==0) {
          gw.send(msg.set(state?false:true), true); // Send new state and request ack back
      }
      oldValue = value;
    } 
    
    value = debouncer2.read(); ######## ADD THAT ######
      if (value != oldValue2 && value==0) { ######## ADD THAT ######
          gw.send(msg2.set(state?false:true), true); // Send new state and request ack back ######## ADD THAT ######
      } ######## ADD THAT ######
      oldValue2 = value; ######## ADD THAT ######
    } ######## ADD THAT ######
     
    void incomingMessage(const MyMessage &message) {
      // We only expect one type of message from controller. But we better check anyway.
      if (message.isAck()) {
         Serial.println("This is an ack from gateway");
      }
    
      if (message.type == V_LIGHT) {
         // Change relay state
         state = message.getBool();
         if(message.sensor == 1) { ######## ADD THAT ######
           digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN, state?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF);
           // Store state in eeprom
           gw.saveState(CHILD_ID, state);
         } else if(message.sensor == 2) { ######## ADD THAT ######
           digitalWrite(RELAY_PIN2, state?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF); ######## ADD THAT ######
           // Store state in eeprom ######## ADD THAT ######
           gw.saveState(CHILD_ID2, state); ######## ADD THAT ######
        }
        
         // Write some debug info
         Serial.print("Incoming change for sensor:");
         Serial.print(message.sensor);
         Serial.print(", New status: ");
         Serial.println(message.getBool());
       } 
    }
    

    The code is not tested nor compiled, but I hope you'll get the idea of how to add a button and a relay.

    Of course this could be done much more elegant with arrays, that could be your next step.



  • Wow! thanks for your time to fill this sketch! appreciate that.

    I tried your sketch and after cleaning some small mistakes i got these errors and i don't know how to lose them.

       } 
    }
    

    and those are the errors:

    
    sketch_sep09a.ino:81:3: error: expected unqualified-id before 'if'
    sketch_sep09a.ino:84:3: error: 'oldValue2' does not name a type
    sketch_sep09a.ino:85:1: error: expected declaration before '}' token
    Error compiling.
    
    

    About the OH rules i made them like this:

    rule "Light"
            when
                    Item lightBar02 received command
            then
                   if(receivedCommand == ON) {
                sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;1\n")
            }
            if(receivedCommand == OFF) {
               sendCommand(Arduino, "101;1;1;0;2;0\n")
            }
    end
    

    what do you think? do i still need to modify something?

    Thank you a lot!🙏


  • Hero Member

    There is a copy & paste error. Remove the bracket after "oldValue = value;" 🙂

    The OH rule looks good.



  • @TimO still doesnt want to compile 😞
    this is the last error:

    sketch_sep10b.ino:81:3: error: expected unqualified-id before 'if'
    Error compiling.
    
    

    Thanks!

  • @TheoL thanks man, I'll try it right now, thanks again.



  • Guys, i tried this sketch above and now it can be uploaded but its not working well.
    The system reacts like this: the first button ( old one) turns the led on / off on the breadboard but its not refreshing the OH button on the webpage and i get some i get some WARN on the server like this:

    I don't understand why i get so many things on the server pressing once on and once off!
    The second button is completely dead, it doesn't do anything on the breadboard or on the web.
    I think the Arduino sketch has some bugs somewhere even it can be compiled. Maybe something inside is wrong or maybe this is not the right way to multiply relays and buttons.

    Any suggestion will be kindly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    PS: I forgot to say that i added in the Arduino sketch the address of the node point:

    #define NODE_ID 101
    


  • Hey guys, i found the solution here array-relay-button-actuator but now the OH part comes 'couse this is different solution. How can i add CHILD_ ID's in this case to create more buttons in OH? i mean how to make difference between the two relays in OH?

    Can somebody please help me? This is what i was looking for.

    Thanks 😱



  • I see, i need to search for help on another forum ...
    Many thanks to TimO who helped me a lot.



  • Hello @ewgor, I follow you on another forum about this subject and are interested myself of this system. I found in the code you posted a small error - might this to be the problem.
    Please let me your email address - I would like to talk about this topic

    @ewgor said: Rules:

    var HashMap<String, String> sensorToItemsMap = newLinkedHashMap(
    "101;1;" -> "lightBar01", // looks good
    "lightBar01" -> "101;1;",
    "101;2;" -> "lightBar01", // <<<<<--------------------------HERE----------------:)
    "lightBar02" -> "101;2;"
    )
