Oil burner

  • Hi

    great stuff. I am fairly new with Mysensors, but I already build a couple of sensors, temp+hum and temp+hum+mot. All as described on this great site. I am using a raspberry pi domoticz controller,

    But now I wanted to measure how many times our oil burner turns on per day. The oil burner is for the central heating in house. The burner has a big blinking light when it turns on, so I was thing to use the Pulse light sketch, but that outputs kWh to domoticz.

    Is there anybody that already did this or can put me on the right track?


  • Hi, I am using a node that count how many times I start my car.
    I am using the S_Rain type since that data is resets every midnight.
    But I am facing problems with Domotics. If no data is sent to Domoticz after 3 hours it will be showing next value in the past
    See my question on Domoticz forum here https://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=11088
    my sketch is here http://forum.mysensors.org/topic/3355/count-car-starts/2

    If you can stick a light sensitive resistor onto that light you could measure when the light goes on and then do something (like send a message to domoticz).
    I'm also looking for a way to count the number of times a door opens (similar problem), no solution on Domoticz yet, still looking.
