Can't see my nodes on HA web interface



  • Hi guys.

    I am new to mysensors and homeassistant. I've recently finished my gateway and my first relay node for switching lights on/off. Everything looks good, but I can't see my nodes on the HA web interface. What can I be doing wrong?

    I've made this for the serial gateway: https://www.mysensors.org/build/serial_gateway
    And for the node I've followed this: https://www.mysensors.org/build/relay (same code shown on the video)

    this is my configuration.yaml:

    homeassistant:
      name: Home
      latitude: NONE
      longitude: NONE
      temperature_unit: C
      time_zone: UTC
    
    mysensors:
      gateways:
        - device: '/dev/ttyUSB0'
      debug: true
      persistence: true
      version: '1.5'
      optimistic: false
    
    history:
    
    logbook:
    
    discovery:
    
    frontend:
    
    conversation:
    
    updater:
    

    First I've started my homeassistant and I see this logs:

    Starting Home-Assistant

    then connect my node to the power and I've got this logs

    after that i don't see any nodes on the web interface.

    Thanks for your help and patience.

    Thanks for your quick reply! I've made those changes to the sketch and uploaded again, now logs looks better without any WARNING.

    What's the next step? I'm still not seeing nodes on my web interface... Where it's supposed to be located?

    Thanks.

    @maverick

    The last log line shows a set message of type 3 which is V_DIMMER or V_PERCENTAGE. That type should not be used for a simple on/off switch. You should use V_STATUS instead.



  • @martinhjelmare

    Hi Martin, I've been reading a lot and still no lucky, can't see my node on the HA. Take a look to my sketch and logs. There's something wrong?

    Thanks again!

  • Plugin Developer

    You need to add this to the end of setup function:

    gw.send(msg.set(0));
    

    The warning in the log is due to the node and child is already loaded from the persistence file, when you start the node and present the child to the gateway. This doesn't matter, as long as you haven't changed the child type. If you want to start with a clean sheet, you can delete the persistence file, restart hass and start the node.

    You can also try the example sketch that I linked to above. I added the example sketches to the mysensors documentation at home-assistant.io to make it easy to get going and test each mysensors component. When you see that the example sketch is working, you can modify it to your preference.



  • @martinhjelmare

    Martin, I've added that line and now i can see the sensor as a switch on my HA web interface. The thing now is, when I trigger the switch from OFF to ON, the serial gateway sends the information to the node but the switch come back to OFF state. This is what i'm seeing on logs

    Thanks!



  • I had the same issue but adding this in the sensor config will make it work:

      optimistic: true
    

    I think is related to the fact that your node is not sending confirmation after assigning the new value (activating /deactivating the relay).


  • Plugin Developer

    Yes, @Dave-Dan is correct. Look at the example sketch, in the end, you'll see that the node sends confirmation of the updated state back to the gateway and controller.



  • I've got an updated relay+button script at home that fixes this issue. I'll post it after work for anyone else who may need it.



  • @Dave-Dan @martinhjelmare

    Guys, I've changed that configuration and it perfectly works !!!
    Now I'm going to automate all the house... 😉

    Thanks for all the support and patience.



  • @drock1985, please can you share it?

    Thank you.
    Antoni.



  • @anarro

    I looked for the sketch the other night and I must have not backed it up on my laptop. I'll see if I can find it in a backup on the weekend/recreate it.



  • Guys, I'm adding this info to the thread just in case that someone may get this useful.

    This is my final sketch:

    Hey, I am going through and upgrading my nodes to 2.0 Beta; the same 'bug' exists there so I had to patch it to work with HA.

    Use this code from the 2.0 Beta. Basically all you have to do is tell the node to broadcast its state on receipt of message. This works from both the button and the HA web interface.

    Awesome! Thanks mate

    I tried your sketch mate but I still can't see my relay node in the webif.
    Binary sensors work great but I can't get the the relay node to work.

    No value is sent for the light in the log. Home assistant needs at least one value to show the device in the gui.

    In 2.0.0 setup is called before presentation, and the node is not registered on the gateway until after presentation. The node is not allowed to send regular messages until it's registered. This logic flow makes it hard for controllers that need an initial value. You have to make sure to send the value at least once in the loop. I would try to do this specifically and separate from the normal flow of the loop.

    In the dev branch of mysensors setup is called after registration, so there you could send the initial value in setup.



  • @martinhjelmare
    For now I should send the state msg from the loop?
    Can you share one of your sketches?

    Thanks a lot

    Btw, message.getBool() always returns 0 in my tests, so I switched to message.getInt() in the sketch above. Can anyone confirm that message.getBool is working in 2.0.0?
