Relay won't work
I've been testing and twisting and soldering and soldering...
Finally after lots of soldering, got Ping Pong to work and attached a relay to try and turn on and off a light.
So for that I used a different site all together but got the light going on and off. The thing is It only works for 1 node
Passing over to PiDome, every thing seems to be fine, although the relay won't commute.
Each time I press the toggle button I see a Led flashing on the Arduino. I assume the serial GateWay is working.
The thing is the relay does not switch position.
This is what I get from the serial monitor. I'm surely no expert and very far from being one(I'm new to all this), but I think every thing is OK!!!
Just finished finding two different relay programs.
I'm using this one
But I found this one, witch is the best?
@hugo_pn try and check the following:
- Try to power the relay directly (from vin or from the transformer). I had the same problem. The vcc just don't give out enough juice.
- Check if your relay is 5v. Another member here ordered 5v and got 12v relay....
I had seen that mentioned
Thanks for your reply. I hope that's it. What about the serial monitor, does it seem ok?
I not positive, but I do think the relay is 5V, it worked with the other sketch I tested.
Once again thanks
Hi @hugo_pn ,
I have posted a reply on the PiDome forum. If it is a case of mapping the sensor id (CHILD_ID from the sketches) this will possibly solve it for you: http://forum.pidome.org/viewtopic.php?id=188
