💬 Building a Raspberry Pi Gateway


  • Code Contributor

    @frencho I hope to write something this weekend, at least a draft.


  • Hardware Contributor

    @marceloaqno
    looking forward to upgrading my gateway to v2 🙂



  • @marceloaqno just wondering because I could figure it out looking at your code : does it work with nrf24 And rfm69 or just nrf24?!

    Regardless of your answer you did a great job, that awesome thanks


  • Code Contributor

    @frencho thanks. Sorry no support for rfm69 yet. I order some rfm69 modules from ebay to play with but they haven't arrived. So I'm waiting to finish some tests.



  • @marceloaqno I second @frencho's comment, excellent job on getting mainline support for the Raspberry Pi into the MySensors codebase. Thank you for your efforts.



  • Hello, I just installed @marceloaqno wonderful port of the mySensors 2.0 to the raspberry pi MyGatewaySerial. Thank you very much for that! I'm very glad to be using my boards that connect my radio directly to my Raspi! The installation went very smoothly.

    I am having an issue with a few of my messages from my sensor node. My sensor node sends 6 messages. 3 are V-STATUS, 1 is V-TEMP, 1 is V-VAR1, and one is the battery voltage level. The V-TEMP and the 3 V-STATUS messages go through perfectly but the V-VAR1 and the Battery voltage are not reaching the Raspi. This is the output of the node:

    @hawk_2050 same for you guys who helped, thank you for all the feedback.

    @jerseyguy1996 I don't see anything wrong with your config.Try to add a small delay() after the first send() and before the sendBattery().

    @annegerben This looks like a wire problem. I updated the guide, check the wire section again.



  • @marceloaqno thanks for the updated in the guide, I've now successfully connected the radio to the RPI.



  • Would it be possible to connect a I2C display to display some information, and drive that display from within mysGatway.cpp ?


  • Code Contributor

    @ericvdb I2C is the next thing I'll do as soon as I finished adding support for signing.



  • @marceloaqno Amazing....adding the short delay fixed it! I'm curious why that is the case. Do you have an explanation for that?


  • Code Contributor



  • Just installed MySensors on one of my Raspberry. Works really great! 🙂 Picks up the other node I have over NRF without trouble. Next I will try and add some sensors directly on the Raspberry.
    Big thanks for this!



  • @marceloaqno Oh that makes sense 🙂 I'm wondering if that is also what is causing my problem with reconnecting when the node loses contact with the gateway. The node connects perfectly when the gateway is running but if it loses the connection for any reason it can't seem to be able to reconnect and just goes into a loop of attempts. Here is the debug info from the node:

    It looks like the first few messages to initialize the reconnect go through okay and then it misses everything afterwards. If I reset the node it will connect again with no problems.
    What do you think might be happening here?



  • A tiny hint for the users of domoticz :
    ./configure --my-gateway=serial --my-serial-is-pty --my-serial-pty=/dev/ttyUSB20
    make
    sudo ./examples_linux/mysGateway -d

    🙂 i hope this helps
    then in the hardware setup
    MySensors Gateway USB
    serial port: /dev/ttyUSB20



  • I'm a bit confused about gateway and controller. Can I use a Pi as both gateway and controller?


  • Admin

    @gvorster said:

    Yes!



  • I'm using the virtual serial port option and one of the things that I notice is that the port gets created where the tty group only has write access.

    pi@raspberrypi:/dev/pts $ ls -l
    total 0
    crw--w---- 1 root tty  136, 0 Oct 10 18:49 0
    

    I can change it manually but if I reboot the raspberry pi it goes back to write access only. How do I get it to be created with 'rw' access?



  • Nevermind....When I set "--my-serial-groupname=tty" in ./configure it works.



  • Where do I put the security stuff for the signing?


  • Hardware Contributor

    @NiklasO

    Signing is not yet supported in the current Raspi Gateway.



  • @GertSanders said:

    Signing is not yet supported in the current Raspi Gateway.

    Ok, thanks.
    I now see that in this thread. Did not see the earlier discussion in the comments on the main page. Hope to see support soon.

    I have disabled signing for the time being but I want it on ofc. 😉



  • what's about RS485 transport on raspberry pi? especially from wired RS485 mysensors network to MQTT



  • Can you use the RP as gateway and also as controller?



  • @raulandresmoch
    Sure. I use this with Domoticz on my Pi.
    "MySensors Gateway with LAN interface" as hardware pointing to 127.0.0.1:5003
    Also, I can connect with other controller software like MYSController from my other computers to my Pi-IP at port 5003.


  • Code Contributor

    @b0rmann I could add support for RS485, but I'll need your help to test because I don't have the hardware.



  • The line above
    ./examples_linux/mysGatewaymsyGateway -h
    needs to be corrected to
    ./examples_linux/mysGateway -h
    Thanks for all the hard work! Awesome!


  • Mod

    @DrJeff Thanks for noticing. It should be fixed now.

  • I noticed the "improve rf24" section was added. and it mentioned high cpu.
    i set mine up a few weeks ago and am not using an interrupt on my radio.
    my cpu is only 2-3%
    I'm curious if the high cpu problem is seen by many?

    also a 2nd question.
    if i were to add an interrupt. how can i "re-configure" my setup to include that new -switch
    or do i have to remove everything and re-clone from git hub and start over?



  • Thanks for this excellent port. I'm having an issue running it as an MQTT gateway on the RPi (Model A). It compiles without hassles, but cant make a successful MQTT connection. I get the following:

    mysGateway: Starting gateway...
    mysGateway: Protocol version - 2.0.1-beta
    mysGateway: MCO:BGN:INIT GW,CP=RNNG---,VER=2.0.1-beta

    mysGateway: TSM:INIT:TSP OK
    mysGateway: TSM:INIT:GW MODE
    mysGateway: TSM:READY
    mysGateway: MCO:REG:NOT NEEDED
    mysGateway: MCO:BGN:STP
    mysGateway: MCO:BGN:INIT OK,ID=0,PAR=0,DIS=0,REG=1
    mysGateway: Attempting MQTT connection...
    mysGateway: connected to 127.0.0.1
    mysGateway: Attempting MQTT connection...
    mysGateway: connected to 127.0.0.1
    mysGateway: Attempting MQTT connection...
    mysGateway: connected to 127.0.0.1

    ... those attempts recurring every 15 seconds or so, and in that time, no other activity is processed.
    From the code, I would have expected 'MQTT connected' rather than 'connected to 127.0.0.1'?

    I have mosquitto running on the pi in this case - which is working perfectly in other tests. Both serial and ethernet gateway modes compile and run perfectly, only the mqtt mode not working.
    Has anyone else had a similar issue?



  • @marceloaqno what about gpio interrupts, is that supported?

    I'm thinking to use a RPi as a pulse counter for water, electricity and gas with no radio, just ethernet or mqtt.
    In combination with a I2C display, this could be a nice project 😉

    Greetz,
    Eric



  • Hi,

    I have a raspberry Pi 2 that I've installed MyController on. This works fine, I can access it via the browser. I have also wired up an NRF24L01+ module to the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi. And I have followed the steps under "install and build", which seem to have worked fine. I didn't make any changes to the conf file. However now Im stuck. How do I setup the Raspberry Pi with the NRF24L01+ as a gateway in the MyController Gateway setup page in Safari?


  • Code Contributor

    @shfg There were some reports about this problem in the past, do you see any error messages in your mosquitto log?

    @ericvdb yes, you can attach a function to handle an interruption like this:

    uint8_t mode = FALLING;	// Valid options are: CHANGE, FALLING, RISING
    uint8_t physPin = 16;	// Choose a pin that fits your needs
    
    void irqHandler(void)
    {
    	// Process the interrupt
    }
    
    void setup() {
    	attachInterrupt(physPin, irqHandler, mode);
    }
    

    Support for I2C was added in the latest version.


  • Code Contributor

    @Christian-Simonsen If you are using the default build options for the RPi gateway, in MyController (Resources -> Add gateway) choose Ethernet for the type and enter your RPi ip address in the Host name field.



  • Is it compatible with pre-2.0 versions eg 1.5?

  • Hi,

    Background: I have a raspberry Pi 2 that I've installed MyController on. This works fine, I can access it via the browser. I have also wired up an NRF24L01+ module to the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi. I have also set up the raspberry pi as a gateway in the MyController Gateway setup page in Safari. It found it and it seem to work.

    However to my question. How do I know if the Raspberry Pi gateway with NRF24L01 work? How can I monitor what the Raspberry Pi gateway receive? Is there a similar way as the "Serial Monitor" that I use in the Arduino application, when accessing Arduino Uno via USB?

    If there is I need to monitor this via OSX Terminal.

    Today i tried to use the sketch Water Meter Pulse Sensor in mysGateway.cpp but i run into alot of errors, you have any idea?

    mysGateway.cpp:

    /**
     * The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
     * between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
     * The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
     * repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
     * network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

  • I probably miss something, but why are trying to compile the arduino sketch on Raspberry Pi???


  • Admin

    @ericvdb

    As @Toyman implies, we haven't ported the full Arduino environment here. This should mainly be used for running the Serial/Ethernet gateway directly on your RPi.

    You cannot just run any MySensors example without risking to make heavy adaptations/implementation on your own.


  • Code Contributor

    @ericvdb micros() hasn't been ported, use:

    millis() /1000;
    

    for sleep(), replace:

    sleep(SEND_FREQUENCY);
    

    with

    sleep(SEND_FREQUENCY, false);
    

    Also, if you want to print something don't use Serial.print() or Serial.println(), use printf() or debug().

    Serial.print("l/min:");
    Serial.println(flow);
    

    should be:

    debug("l/min: %f\n", flow);
    

    as @hek said, the main focus now is to be used as a gateway, with time adding sensors will become less problematic.



  • @marceloaqno
    I have it almost working. Regarding the interrupt, I have to pull-up to 3.3V the io pin through a resistor of 10k?
    Right now the interrupt isn't firing



  • @marceloaqno thanks, turned on mosquitto logging and am getting this error on mosquitto:

    1476724216: Socket read error on client (null), disconnecting.

    Tried an alternative mosquitto broker on another server too - same error.



  • @marceloaqno

    I have it working 😃 only need to play with the debounce value



  • @marceloaqno I finally have the MQTT gateway working after upgrading mosquitto to the latest build... I had installed mosquitto with apt-get under Wheezy which apparently pulled an older version. In retrospect probably should have just upgraded to Jessie from the outset! Working perfectly now (still under wheezy though FWIW)... thanks!

    @Christian-Simonsen start the gateway with debug enabled:

    mysGateway -d
    


  • @Christian-Simonsen If you don't have debug enabled you could also just use:

    tail -f /dev/ttyUSB20
    

    My port is named ttyUSB20. You should substitute whatever you have named your port.



  • @jerseyguy1996

    Thanks I'll test it. But it seems like I've jumped over a step or two. Or something isn't working. Nothing happened when I wrote "Make" in Terminal, so I jumped over this step. I guess that might be the problem.

    Do I have to configure (./configure -help) or can I use the default values when I connect the NRF24L01 to the GPIO pins?


  • Code Contributor

    @b0rmann what happened? Did you fixed the problem you described in your last message?



  • @marceloaqno

    it's my problem. accidentally disconnected power from nrf24 on running gw



  • @marceloaqno I have it completely working now. 😆 A Raspberry Pi PulseCounter for water/gas/electricity consumption measurements with ethernet/mqtt. I can post my code here if you want.

    Minor detail:

    millis() / 1000;
    

    should be

    millis() * 1000;
    

    to get micros() 😉


  • Code Contributor

  • Thanks for adding signing.

    I want to use my rPi to generate random soft serials for my sensors.
    Could all three "gen" commands output the line to put in SecurityPersonalizer.ino like it does when using the "set" commands?


  • Code Contributor

    @Christian-Simonsen you need to be within the MySensors folders to execute commands configure and make.
    I recommend you to test that everything is working before using the option --my-rf24-irq-pin=15

    Like this:

    cd MySensors
    ./configure --my-gateway=serial --my-serial-is-pty --my-serial-pty=/dev/ttyMySensorsGateway --my-radio=nrf24
    make
    sudo ./examples_linux/mysGateway -d
    

  • Code Contributor

    @NiklasO Done (#622). Thanks for the sugestion.



  • @marceloaqno said:

    cd MySensors
    ./configure --my-gateway=serial --my-serial-is-pty --my-serial-pty=/dev/ttyMySensorsGateway --my

    Thanks for letting me know, didn't know that not running it from the specific folder would have an impact.

    I reconfigured it as you recommended. and restarted the gateway, with the result below.

  • Hi,

    Is there anyone here that can give me some one-to-one support this evening to setup the Raspberry Pi + NRF24L01 as a gateway with MyController, and a Arduino Uno + NRF24L01 as Sensor node. I'm stuck after trying various things over the past week, so looks like I need some additional skills/knowledge to get the first setup working.

    Maybe we can use Skype or some other medium. I will gladly pay a bit for this support if anyone is interested. I have some free time from 18:00 CET - 23:30 CET today...



  • hi, the gateway works but how display sensors in domoticz?
    Thank you very much



  • @nico you need a sensor to send data to GW and assuming you have GW added to Domoticz, Domoticz will add up corresponding values to "Devices"



  • I have a gateway and 1 sensor ,obviously.
    I have added serial GW but anyone sensor appear, i'm sure that the sensor works, and the gateway also (see with the command mysGateway -d).
    Can you have any idea ? Thank you



  • @nico I would suggest you open up a different post in the Troubleshooting section regarding this matter
    1 post GW and sensor logs

    1. How do you know that the GW was added to Domoticz? Logs please?


  • @Christian-Simonsen

    You can pretty much test out using any of the arduino examples here:

    https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/tree/development/examples

    Each one will present itself to the gateway when it starts up and you will see the presentation in the debug log. Make sure to run:

    https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/tree/development/examples/ClearEepromConfig

    on the arduino first to make sure it starts with a fresh eeprom. After you select an Arduino sketch to test it with (seriously it doesn't matter which one you try) make sure to look at the sketch and add:

    // Enable and select radio type attached
    #define MY_RADIO_NRF24
    #define MY_NODE_ID 4
    

    For MY_NODE_ID you can select any number. Just make sure that each new sensor node that you create has a different node number so like start out at MY_NODE_ID 1 and when you make another sensor node you can #define MY_NODE_ID 2 and so on.

    Next load it up to the Arduino, open the serial monitor, and see what happens. If you watch the serial monitor on the arduino you will see it present itself to the gateway and then you can confirm it in the debug log on the raspberry pi.

    I think it is pretty normal to have the problems you are having. I uninstalled and reinstalled the gateway 3 times on the Raspberry Pi before I finally got it all figured out. Once you get it running it is a glorious thing.

    @b0rmann Can you provide a full debug log of all involved nodes?



  • Can I attach one or more DallasTemp sensors on the Raspberry Pi gateway?

    Ok,

    I've tested with the Voltmeter and the NRF24L01 module do get a steady 3.26 V. Both the gateway module and the Arduino sensor node...

    Im now building a few extra sensor nodes, so I can test without the Raspberry pi. Hopefully I can atleast get them talking based on Arduinos first. Before testing the Raspberry Pi.

    I haven't seen anyone doing anything similar so it might require some work. But almost anything is possible given enough work 🙂



  • Has anyone else had an issue with getting a sensor node to reconnect after a lost connection? I can see it attempting to reconnect but even though it is back within range of the gateway it won't reestablish the connection. If I reset the node it re-establishes the connection without any problem. This is the cycle that it gets stuck in:

  • @Christian-Simonsen multimeter will not detect issues with the power feed (noise or unstable). It just says that you voltage under zero load is 3.3V.



  • Appears things are changing, please update wiki:
    Warning: --my-radio is deprecated, please use --my-transport



  • @mfalkvidd Alright 🙂 The thing is that I have my Raspberry Pi as a Gateway today near my server rack and would like to measure the temperatur. Maybe I just get a Nano to do the work for me. Just would have been great to use the Raspberry.


  • Mod

    @Patrik-Söderström You can probably connect a temperature sensor to the gpio pins and have your controller read the sensor (without using MySensors)


  • Code Contributor

    @carlyler Thanks for pointing that out.


  • Code Contributor



  • @marceloaqno Yes its 220 uF. It was all I had handy. I read somewhere that this may be a problem specific to the arduino nano. I may give it a try with the pro mini. Although I'm not sure what that may have to do with it.

    Edit: I tried the same sketch on an arduino pro mini and it worked fine. When I simulated a loss of connection by walking out of range of the gateway it immediately reestablished the connection when I got back within range. The only difference is that the pro mini is running at 8 mhz whereas the nano runs at 16 mhz. Not sure how that affects things.



  • Hello everyone. Is there a way to reduce the number of Heartbeat messages the gateway produces by itself? Using MYSController to analyze the data traffic, I see every 10 seconds a Heartbeat - would like to reduce this once everything is working as expected to maybe every 5 or 10 minutes...


  • Admin

    @Velo17

    Just sleep longer. It sends one heartbeat every time the node wakes up.



  • @Christian-Simonsen

    I have exactly the same error

    mysGateway: !TSF:MSG:LEN,0!=7

    Have you been able to resolve that problem yet? I have tried multiple radios with different capacitors and powersources grounded to the Raspberry Pi.

    thanks



  • @dopeeye

    Sadly not. I ended up creating an serial gateway (arduino with NRF24L01 and a USB connector) and connected this to the Raspberry Pi, rather than connecting the NRF24L01 directly to the GPIO pins. This worked perfectly straight away.



  • @Christian-Simonsen

    Too stubborn to give up, yet.
    If i find a resolution I will let you know



  • I would like to try this, but my pins19-23 are already used by other hardware. Has anyone tried using the SPI1 Pins?



  • @dopeeye I had this issue and unfortunately changed several things at once and got rid of it. However, one thing I noticed was I had different versions of mySensors in my library directory since I downloaded the examples package. Therefore the sensor was likely compiling on a different version than the Gateway. You might want to check that.

    If you could post more of your logs (sensor and gateway) it might help.



  • @marceloaqno

    When running as a service, is there a way to watch the debug log?



  • Any ETA on support for RFM69 ? Need to extend my coverage 🙂



  • Done:

  • Mod

    @alesc looks like this commit in the development branch broke the code.

    Do

    git checkout master
    

    before running configure should get the code to the latest stable release.

    EDIT: Sorry, that won't work because the Raspberry Pi stuff didn't exist when MySensors 2.0 was released. You'll have to do git pull instead, to get tekka's fix.

  • Hi Everyone !
    Big thumb up for the amount of work supplied !!!
    After being more or less successful with openHAB1 I had a go with openHAB2 today, via a online install....
    But no success with the "mysGateway" install : should i go back to serial gateway with an arduino ?
    Thanks a lot for your help



  • @ben999 try again, because it works great. I assume by online install you mean apt-get; I too had trouble when trying this. However, I tried again following @TimO instructions here:
    wiki, then everything came up nicely. I feel it is some permission issue that I have not tried to figure out yet.


  • Code Contributor

    @ericvdb when running as a service, debug messages are masked and aren't shown in the system logs, but it would be a good idea to have a way to connect to gateway perhaps using telnet and watch the logs. I'll work on something.



  • @carlyler
    Thanks a lot for your message, hope is back on my side 🙂
    Actually I had a go with openHABian (i didn't make it clear in my previous message, sorry)
    The install itself couldn't be easier : OS+openHAB installed in one go, just by formatting SD Card with a tiny img file. One hour later and voilà !
    So that could be the source of my trouble?
    I will go with the link you supplied tonight and let you know (lookslike it is a manual install... scary!!)
    Thank you again for your support



  • @ben999 if you have not already, read through the MySensors OH2 thread. I noticed a recent post by @TimO that talks about setting some permissions and that might be the issue. Otherwise, the manual install is not bad as he gives you step-by-step; I am a new to all this and managed to get it to work...
