Ethernet Gateway and Window Sensor dont communicate.
yesterday i soldered an ethernet controller and a window sensor. But it seems not to work, and i ask me how to check. It looks like the modules dont send. But i dont know how to check this.
When i connect the Controller and the Sensor to my computer on serial console i see only this output:
0;0;3;0;9;gateway started, id=0, parent=0, distance=0
find parent send: 255-255-255-255 s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,st=bd, id=255, parent=255, distance=255 find parent send: 255-255-255-27,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,st=bc: find parent send: 255-255-255-255 s=255,c=3,=0,st=bc:
I used on them the API 1.5. On both i used the sample Sketches.
Can you help me please, how can i check the radio is working.
I have on both modules an arduine nano. And on the controller i have a NRF24l01p with PA and sma Connector. On the Window Sensor i have a small nrf24l01 (modell 3629)
Thank you in Advance

Your sensor is requesting an ID. What controller are you using?
sorry i mean the ethernet gateway.
this one: http://www.mysensors.org/build/ethernet_gateway
OK, but i have read at the api that the sensor get automaticaly an id from gateway.
If not where i can configure the id?

No, you are getting it wrong.
The gateway never assigns ID to sensors, thats the task of a controller:
sensor ---> gateway ---> controller (where controller is one of the controllers listed here
Alternatively, you can set a static ID on your sensornode by doing
// Assign ID 6 to sensor node gw.begin(NULL,6,false);
Ah, ok. I use FHEM. In FHEM i have defined the gateway. In FHEM i see this:
DEF 10.0.0.253:5003 DeviceName 10.0.0.253:5003 FD 5 NAME CUL_MySensors NOTIFYDEV global NR 41 NTFY_ORDER 50-CUL_MySensors PARTIAL STATE startup complete TYPE MYSENSORS ack 0 inclusion-mode 1 outstandingAck 0 version 1.5.1 Readings: connection startup complete 2015-12-18 16:43:30 state opened 2015-12-18 16:43:30 Attributes autocreate 1 stateFormat connection
that is what i see on serial monitor of the sensor:
find parent send: 255-255-255-255 s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,st=bc: sensor started, id=255, parent=255, distance=255 find parent send: 255-255-255-255 s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,st=bc: find parent send: 255-255-255-255 s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,st=bc:

I am not familiar with FHEM, but I think you problem is in the FHEM settings - the controller is not assigning the ID to the sensor.
Did you try to assign the node ID manually in gw.begin?
