@lis610 I have found with a 499K resistor the range is reduced to about 1.2m in a ABS box.
With a 1Mohm it was about 3m, I do not have many high value SMD resistors to experiment with but the lower the value the lower the range.
Just tried with a 333K and it operates about 0.8m in free air.
@scalz said in HALO : ESP32 multi transport GW/Bridge for Mysensors:
the webapp was great, but I converted it to native crossplatform app for better versatility&perf, so I can use one app for my devices, like Ethernet for HALO etc, or Serial for my other Janus gw dongle, bluetooth..
To be honest, I've not updated anything yet for a few reasons, like very little spare time for a public release + support for such "big" project. (easier to handle local projects).
Sorry, still no eta for the moment..
It is clear that there is not enough time. But this project can become popular. That's what's missing MySensors. ...This void must be filled.
@TON-RIJNAARD You need to select the board based on the bootloader you have flashed. Complile the code in Arduino and try burning the hex file using a programmer (USBasp, AVRISP, etc..) if are facing issues with Arduino.
I buy them on Aliexpress:
If you apply hot air it is easy to take off the white "double sided tape" and the plastic.
@scurb This looks very interesting and my factor now to save me from having to create my own :-). I have been planning to do the same thing (although maybe on a smaller software scale) by writing a simple Python server that would pull serial packets off of a gateway arduino (either running mysensors or something I write myself) and pipe this through MQTT to openHAB. I have two questions:
How do you interface with a sensor network? Do you go through a serial connection to read the serial packet format (a,b,c,d)? I see several implementations that put the mqtt client directly on the Arduino, but it seems much cheaper for me to just plug it into a USB port to get a virtual serial port instead of investing in a separate ethernet shield
How does an item configurations look like for a switch in openHAB? I'm looking to build a toggle switch which toggles light on or off every time it is activated, and I cannot really understand how to configure the switch to allow this behaviour for an mqtt input.
Feel free to take the second question with me directly since this might not be very interesting to the others in the forum
Okay, finally got the original nrf24l01 SMD modules with the square chip visible... As exptected, things work just fine now, so the culprit of my issues was really the incompatible/fake "nrf24l01" SMD modules with the epoxy blob. If you want to use normal nrf24l01+ modules together with this smd gateway, DO
NOT USE the smd module with the epoxy blob, as they won't work.
Using only the fake SMD modules might work, too, but mixing the fake modules with real ones does not work.
