Is there any chance of using C.H.I.P. ($9 linux computer, see http://getchip.com/pages/chip ) as a gateway? Any plans?
Considering they claim to start shipping four months from now, and someone needs to be interested enough to order one, get it and spend the time to test and troubleshoot it will probably be a while, especially considering there already are several cheaper gateway solutions available.
But anything is possible.
Yes, I completely understand.
I am just pointing out the C.H.I.P. will be probably a good alternative to Raspberry Pi (Zero) running simultaneously the controller and the gateway.
Total cost of all components in Pi case is a much higher than C.H.I.P. solution, see http://makezine.com/2015/11/28/chip-vs-pi-zero/ for the details (cca $25 in Pi case ; C.H.I.P. has onboard WIFi and storage included in its $9 price)
Even as an alternative to ESP8266, it is just a few bucks more.
The original reason why I was looking for such alternatives was, by the way, different: I am constructing an OpenTherm home heating boiler controller mysensor node and the flash size of Atmega 328 is too low for such special sensor. Any idea of nearly supported more powerful mysensor nodes?
As a controller makes sense I think. Might be a good idea to donate a chip to the Domoticz team so they can do whatever is necessary to make Domoticz work on that platform.
You should be able to just use an Arduino with larger flash. The mega for example. See https://www.arduino.cc/en/Products/Compare
btw, running Domoticz on C.H.I.P probably works out-of-the-box since the C.H.I.P will Debian according to their documentation.
True, but the C.H.I.P only has 4GB on internal memory. Makes any file/data storage on the device somewhat limited.
You mean storage, right? C.H.I.P only has 512MB memory.
The Domoticz database for my system, which has been running for 6 months, is 1.2MB. The system uses a total of 2.8GB so if the database grows linearly with 2.4MB per year, 4GB will be full in (4-2.8)*1024/2.4=512 years. I would be surprised if my descendants haven't upgraded the controller by then...

Sorry to replying in this old thread
Domoticz work pretty well on c.h.i.p. but not out the box we need to install a few stuff like java 8 git etc but I'm so happy is working just order two more c.h.i.p.'s as this small device is amazing and cheaper
@fernando-alvarez-buylla thats really awesome. Can you please post the steps?

@vikasjee glady but I follow some one else steps lol
But instead of
