@keithellis Lovely idea.
I've followed suit and knocked up one but with the sensor facing the other way, so that it faces the meter, and the preset pot is and LEDs are facing away from the meter.
That way the sensor side of the case can be stuck to the face of the meter, and the pot adjusted without removing it from the meter. The flashing light on DO flashes in sync with the LED on the meter. Theres a little ring that holds the sensor flush with the face of the case so it can lie flat on the front of the meter.
Also, its a good idea to use black / dark coloured PLA so as to block out the any stray light that may illuminate the sensor (such as when the meter man comes to read it and shines a bright torch to see the dials).
thanks for sharing the models for 3D printing. I built one 3 years ago and it is still running with one pair of AA batteries, MySensors and Arduino Pro Mini.
Last year I needed some adjustments and adaptations for friends so I got inspired and remodeled the rain gauge for 3Dprinter.
Maybe it could be usefull for someone so I decided to share it here (https://www.prusaprinters.org/prints/130513-rain-gauge)
what would you like as a novelty ???
" MySensors is dead ?" ... No, in my house it is still alive.
but it's true you are right to ask the question.
the programmers, the creators are always The ?????
what!? bought by the competition so that MySensors does not evolve any more? it makes damage to the commercial product
The note before the example sketch states that you should use the "modified" library from MySensors examples.
But as of today, with MySensors 2.3.2 and Arduino 1.8.15 I used the standard DallasTemperature library (provided by the Arduino's Libraries manger) with no problems at all.
Using the "standard" Arduino libraries is a grate advantage, so I the custom library is no more used, it could be useful to update the guidelines in the page.
