💬 Temperature Sensor


  • Admin

    This thread contains comments for the article "Temperature Sensor" posted on MySensors.org.



  • Hi there, I'm new to Mysensors and I thought I'd start with a simple DS Temp sensor. However, I'm getting compile errors when I try compile it. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    Arduino: 1.6.11 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino Nano, ATmega328"

  • Ah, never mind! Managed to resolve it after all. For the benefit of others who may hit the same issue: the code depends on a very particular version of the DallasTemperature library, the versions downloaded via the Arduino IDE don't work and give the errors above. I had to download the library from the examples on github here: https://github.com/mysensors/MySensorsArduinoExamples



  • @mrwomble

    Hello mrwomble.

    Could you detail the file you have use to compile OK ? Do we need to use the full library? I plan to use local file with
    #include "filename.h"
    instead of
    #include <filename.h>
    Thanks



  • I have trouble with this on a NodeMCU 0.9.
    #error "Please define I/O register types here"

    Anyone who can help?


  • Mod

    @Patrik-Söderström could you give us some more context about the problem?
    Which line does the error occur on? Does the error message say anything more? (we are not magicians 🙂 )
    Have you modified the example sketch in any way? if so, what changes?



  • I use the following code, I have added the GW support for ESP board.

    @Patrik-Söderström according to http://www.esp8266.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=9430 you need a newer version of the onewire library.

  • @remis

    I confirm that i can suppress the compilation error but nothing append on serial port...

    Could somebody write here the typical serial port output with debug available?

    This example is not working. What is the good solution to use this temperature sensor ?

    thanks



  • Why don't we use an internal pull-up resistor available within an arduino board? Why additional external one?

    pinMode(pin, INPUT); // set pin to input
    digitalWrite(pin, HIGH); // turn on pullup resistors


  • Mod

    @Alex-B-Goode the datasheet says "The 1-Wire bus requires an external pullup resistor of approximately 5kΩ"
    The internal pull-up of most Arduinos are 20-50kΩ

    So my guess is that the reason is that the person who created the instructions read the datasheet and chose to follow its recommendation. But accounding to http://electronics.stackexchange.com/a/62096/107155 the exact size might not be important, so it might be possible to use the internal pull up. Try it and let us know if it works.



  • Does this example compile for anyone??? I get this error:

    @toddsantoro see post 2 and 3 in this thread or read the instructions on the build page, just under the "Example" heading.

    ^ What he said 😁



  • @mfalkvidd OK. I have it compiling and uploaded to the nano. My config file looks like this now:

    sensor 6:
      -platform: onewire
        names:
          some_id: outside
          mount_dir: "/mnt/1wire"
    

    I get an error when I restart HASS on the Pi.

    ERROR (Thread-6) [homeassistant.components.sensor.onewire] No onewire sensor found. Check if dtoverlay=w1-gpio is in your /boot/config.txt. Check the mount_dir parameter if it's defined.
    

    I guess my question is do I need to define the mount_dir variable and if so is the one I have correct? And if it is correct do I need to create that directory on my Pi?

    I also do not get any output in the Arduino Serial Monitor window. Not sure if I even should...

    Thanks in advance for any help...


  • Mod

    @toddsantoro I am not familiar with homeassistant so I have no clue unfortunately.

    About debug output on the serial monitor: Debug needs to be enabled first. See instructions at https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/666/debug-faq-and-how-ask-for-help and https://www.mysensors.org/build/debug

    Debug output is often essential when troubleshooting.

  • Mod

    @toddsantoro yes that looks good.

    The "st=ok:xyz" means message xyz was acknowledged by the destination node (in your case by the gateway)



  • No compile error but i cant see anything on the serial monitor. also the temp sensor burend out with a 4k7 resistor :S



  • @stingone
    Hi. The same issue for me . I solve it with : 38400 bauds configuration serial port ( instead of 115200 default value)
    and i lowering the RF power output with low_pa enable: it confirms that I have some issues with power suppply.

    good luck



  • It seems the DallasTempereture library is not a part of the default Library setup from Mysensors as of version 2.0? I tried to compile the above code, but I had to manually download DallasTemperature from GitHub first. Then OneWire was also missing. Adding these two libraries brought me a bit further, but I get a long list of errors connected to OneWire. What libraries should be used?


  • Mod

    @bentrik the library is part of the MySensorsArduinoExamples, which can be downloaded at https://github.com/mysensors/MySensorsArduinoExamples/archive/master.zip



  • Hi All, i'm also new here and into this. Like others i also ran into problems compiling this sketch, i tried al libraries mentioned in the posts in this thread, but no go. keep getting this error message:

    Can someone help me with this problem? i have no clue at all and woud really like to build me a working sensor so i can hook it up to my Domoticz setup. thanks

    hin this context



  • @Sealander

    see solution above. Delete your dallas library and replace with the one above in the master zip file. That was the solution for me.



  • @mfalkvidd Thanks for the feedback, It got me a bit further.
    I have a fresh Windows Arduino 1.6.12 install, and I have download the MySensors Library 2.0 through the Library manager, and I've found MySensors.h and MyConfig.h under \Documents\Arduino\libraries\MySensors

    I'm able to compile and upload the RelayActuator but quite a few of the library files seem to be missing in 2.0. DallasTemperature seem to be one of them.-But I struggled with DallasTemperature and some others.

    I copied all the whole MySensors-1.5.4.zip library files to to C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries, and I managed to compile, but I got an error message saying Invalid version found: 1.04
    Then I tried to only copy the DallasTemperature and OneWire folder, and I had no errors.

    -So I assume all library files the entire MySensors Examples catalouge are not ready in Libraries 2.0.

    Anyways: The solution to get this sensor to work with Arduino 1.6.12, following the Download and API guide, adding MySensors 2.0 through the Library Manager, is to manually add:
    \Arduino\libraries\DallasTemperature
    \Arduino\libraries\OneWire\

    -from https://github.com/mysensors/MySensorsArduinoExamples/archive/master.zip
    -And not adding the whole structure.

    Now I just have to find out how to make it speak to my serial gateway 😆



  • I get the feeling it is possible to use more then one sensor parallel on port 3. I wonder if each sensor is being monitored? Am I right and do I need to alter or change something?



  • my feeling was right.... i just connected 5 temp censors it is working great



  • I am getting the error:

    DallasTemperatureSensor.ino: In function 'void loop()':
    DallasTemperatureSensor:93: error: 'getConfig' was not declared in this scope

    ok, but we are going off topic since now your problem seems to be the radios can't talk to each other, so if you take a look in troubleshooting section you will see others having this error that usually if bad wiring, missing capacitor on vcc of the nrf24, range/interference problem. How far are the 2 radio modules? Try putting them 2-3 meters apart.



  • Thanks, my radio modules are very close, they are on the same table for test. On of them may be damaged, I must receive others. I'm going in the troubleshooting section to avoid polluting this article.
    Thanks for your help


  • Mod

    Put them at least 2 meters apart, just to play safe.



  • It's the same, I've even reversed the radio modules



  • @gohan , I'm in the same situation as @Vincent-Lgrd. I'm powering my arduino UNO from usb (to test). Is that a possible problem?


  • Mod

    I use USB pretty much all the time and never had any issue. I had many problems in the beginning with radio modules that had the black blob instead of the ic and once I got the new ones everything started to work. I'm still working on increasing the range, probably because they are clones and not good quality.



  • @gohan I changed my getaway to an old good rpi model b, and the temperature node started to work, so I think that the problem was on de getaway wiring or in the getaway code itsef. Thanks



  • Is it also possible to upload the example code to a Arduino Nano, and connect it via USB to a Windows PC with Domoticz?

    Or will it only work with the radio modules (and extra gateway?)


  • Mod

    I think you can use the serial gateway sketch and the sensor code in setup and loop



  • Thank you for posting this project!

    Could like to suggest a small change to the sketch. There are several posts out there about this not running with the latest DallasTemperature library. The call to sensors.millisToWaitForConversion won't compile because the method is not public. From another post I learned that this method is very simple and could be included in the sketch. I would suggest changing the line

    int16_t conversionTime = sensors.millisToWaitForConversion(sensors.getResolution());

    to read

    int16_t conversionTime = millisToWaitForConversion(sensors.getResolution());

    and add this function to the sketch:

    int16_t millisToWaitForConversion(uint8_t bitResolution)
    {
    switch (bitResolution)
    {
    case 9:
    return 94;
    case 10:
    return 188;
    case 11:
    return 375;
    default:
    return 750;
    }
    }

    In any case, this might help the next person using this project.



  • I had some problems with Domoticz triggering an event based on a certain temperature. When using multiple DS18B20 it is a good idea to use the ID of the sensors to always get the same order of sensors. If one is not read, for example B of A, B, C then C becomes B. See: https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/4143/about-ds18b20-onewire for more info. You maybe need to adjust the sketch a bit for your number of sensors.



  • @CurtisMack

    could you explain how to solve this ?
    I'm no pro, and wanted to use 1 single DS1820 in a sketch and also got same message about :
    int16_t conversionTime = sensors.millisToWaitForConversion(sensors.getResolution());

    Mysensors is hard hard nut to learn, specially because of a lot of changes in the newer version 2.1.0 ...(and im still learning to work with arduino software , i keep running often against old sketches i like to try as sample to use them in other sketches , (my way of learning) but than they dont work with latest version. because something changed.
    but i love the mysensors functions.

    p.s sorry for my bad english....





  • I sofar got the sketch running and giving good data on serial and into domoticz

    i only could use some help with how to sent my Temperature in Celsius to domoticz to
    i tried to use:
    send(msgTemp.set(insideThermometer ,2));
    and
    send(msgTemp.set(tempC,2));

    both without luck, the first did transmit some data but wrong numbers
    second did nothing think because with this i done i does not know what address the DS1820 is on.

    Im learning every day something new....

    Maybe someone could help,

  • @Rene046 Your sketch doesn't show either of the send commands you say you are attempting. This makes it difficult to determine why it wouldn't be working. I am relative new to all of this as well, and use Vera not a Domoticz. On the first version that is sending a message, what data is getting through? I would try putting the "send" command someplace in the code where msgTemp has already been set. Then just call send(msgTemp).



  • hi

    Then i would have placed this in the loop>
    The error i get then is :'TempC' was not declared in this scope

    #ifdef MY_DEBUG
    Serial.print("DS1820 Temperature: ");
      Serial.print(tempC);
      Serial.println(" C");
    send(msgTemp.set(tempC ,2));
      
      Serial.print("Battery Voltage: ");
      Serial.print(batteryV);
      Serial.println(" V");
    send(msgbatt.set(batteryV ,2));```


  • so far my result.

    had to use float TempC = 50.5 at the start
    but in my serial i get the right temperature,
    but using it in the loop gives me still wrong number 50.5 so gets not updated.

  • Hi,

    Can someone push me into the right direction.
    I followed the "tutorial" and setup a Serial Gateway. This seems to be running just fine.

    Now i want to add a node with a temperature sensor.

    Both are using the NRF24L radio.

    On my node i get an errors in the serial monitor.
    What did i do wrong?

    0 MCO:BGN:INIT NODE,CP=RNNNA--,VER=2.1.1

  • Hi Gohan,

    I did not know that page. Thanks for the push 👍

    I think i have crappy radio tho, because i switched it with anotherone i have and it started working....
    Thanks!


  • Mod

    don't tell me about crappy nrf24... I got a bunch of really bad ones that work but only for 5 meters max.



  • I just tried this today but get an error. Here's the output.....

    This report would have more information with

    option enabled in File -> Preferences.

    THis is MYS 2.1.1 installed so a bit baffled as to what is causing the problem, it should just work, right?

    Anyone with any insight please let me know! 🙂


  • Mod

    @skywatch just follow the instructions on the build page:

    This example uses a modified version of the external DTH library, which is included in the MySensors external examples. Please install it and restart the Arduino IDE before trying to compile.



  • Thank you - that did it.

    But it would be good to have that info in the file header too, just to call attention to it. Either that or a structured step-by-step tutorial so that things like this don't get left out.

    At least it works now though, kul!



  • really silly question.....so does create multiple sensors? so i would have temp1 temp2 or does it combine the value of both for an averaged temprature?
    the way i read it it would present mutiple sensors i think?


  • Mod

    It creates the sensors that you present during the presentation.



  • appologies for the badly worded questions...the code in its example format....
    am i reading it correctly that it presents sensors based on the variable for number of temp sensors?


  • Mod

    It will present different sensros according to the #define MAX_ATTACHED_DS18B20 16



  • Hi,
    I have only one sensor on the mini pro and I have this in the logs:

    Sleep time is set to 60000ms, why the time between 2 messages is around 5ms???


  • Mod

    @Digdogger it can depend on a lot of things. The best way to know is to look at the debug logs from the node and the gateway from the time when it happened. There could be a problem with the communication, with the radios, with the power supply, with the sketch, etc.

    It could also be that you're using a microcontroller that doesn't support MySensors sleep, such as the esp8266. But it is just a guess. The information that's usually needed to troubleshoot is listed in https://forum.mysensors.org/topic/666/debug-faq-and-how-ask-for-help/



  • OK thanks mfalkvidd



  • Slightly off-topic here... but related to this particular sketch

    If you look close enough (and copy-paste the sketch into your IDE) you'll witness that one curly-bracket is technically missing at the end of loop()...

    But as I added it to the sketch I got error

    Sketch compiles fine "with" the missing curly-bracket... ???

    Any comment to that (in my sense) funny behavior ?


  • Mod

    @ben999 the simple answer is probably that the backet isn't missing 🙂

    Can you show why you think it is missing?



  • @mfalkvidd

    I must have gone mad then 👻

    Check the loop()
    The last closing curly--bracket is for

    for (int i=0; i<numSensors && i<MAX_ATTACHED_DS18B20; i++) {
    

    So which one closes

    void loop()     {  
    

    If i add one more to "make it right" then hell brakes loose...

    sketch_jul31a:110: error: expected declaration before '}' token
     }
     ^
    exit status 1
    expected declaration before '}' token
    

    1-That's the only sketch behaving this way
    2-Even the "IDE-automatic-opening-bracket-finder" (shows which bracket is open when placing cursor on closing bracket) can NOT find the right bracket for loop()...

    😱


  • Mod

    Interesting observation @ben999

    This is caused by the preprocessing directives.

    #if COMPARE_TEMP == 1
        if (lastTemperature[i] != temperature && temperature != -127.00 && temperature != 85.00) {
    #else
        if (temperature != -127.00 && temperature != 85.00) {
    #endif
    

    Only one of these if statements will be active. The Arduino IDE probably doesn't evaluate preprocessing directives, so it sees two if statements and therefore thinks it should see two end braces. A way to "fix" this could be to move the starting curly brace to after the preprocessing directives:

    #if COMPARE_TEMP == 1
        if (lastTemperature[i] != temperature && temperature != -127.00 && temperature != 85.00)
    #else
        if (temperature != -127.00 && temperature != 85.00)
    #endif
        {
    

    This allows the Arduino IDE to parse the code correctly, and correctly match the braces.


  • Mod

    It's time to move to a better IDE 😁



  • @mfalkvidd
    Gosh you're a genius ! And you share your knowledge with style and simple explanation ! But i can only upvote you once 😄

    @gohan
    No way 😄 IDE is nice and simple for nice and simple people like me 🐰



  • I just upgraded to the MYS 2.1.1 version.

    My OneWire temperature sensors were not detected!

    I moved the sensors.begin() from setup() to before(), and that seems to have fixed things, and my temp sensors are being detected and read now.

    Anyone know why the OneWire library has to be initialized before MySensors setup?

    Thanks!



  • @chaeron I assume, you used an old version of the sketch.

    Your question most likely is related to a change in the order of the initialisation. This has changed in Version 2.2: from
    setup()=>presentation()
    to
    before()=>presentation()=>setup().

    So also the initialisation of sensors had to be reviewed accordingly (eg. to get the number of devices).



  • @rejoe2 said in 💬 Temperature Sensor:

    @chaeron I assume, you used an old version of the sketch.

    That is correct....the original code was written over a year ago. Trying to run it under 2.1.1 caused it to fail.

    Your question most likely is related to a change in the order of the initialisation. This has changed in Version 2.2: from
    setup()=>presentation()
    to
    before()=>presentation()=>setup().

    So where was this rather major change documented? It would probably have broken any 1-Wire examples, including the temperature one.

    So also the initialisation of sensors had to be reviewed accordingly (eg. to get the number of devices).

    So I figured out....I went looking for documentation on this rather significant change and was not able to find it noted anywhere.



  • There was a rather small note in the 2.0.0 changelog about the introduction of before().

    Btw: Another functional routine (preHwInit() (?)) may have been introduced also with 2.1.1 (?). But until now, all of my sketches and tests got along without this preHwInit() functionality. But imo the new structure is pretty good: before() is helpfull to initialise SPI devices on same bus as nRF24 and to collect relevant info like the number of DS18x20, setup() is now also good to send info you only need once (e.g. the Dallas-Chip-ID).

    The rest is - at least afaik - not really documented well, but most examples (if you use the updated ones) will work (apart from the DS18x20 example, where other - external - code changes made some parts tricky to use.

    I made some working sketches for the Dallas Sensors some time ago based on some ideas I found here in the MySensors forum; they mostly should still work (exept for the change of getConfig() to getControllerConfig()). If you are interested: here .

    Kind regards



  • If anyone is interested:

    The sketches in my repo have been updated yesterday for complete compability with the new structure and syntax. They compile fine and should work, but I didn't have the time to make functional tests also.
    If anyone is interested, I could also add a multibus example with several Sensors at each bus and different timings for each bus. One of my nodes is working on this concept for several days now (Heizung, RS485 version), so I'm pretty confident this will reliably work for longer periods. But it's rather special😀 .



  • @rejoe2
    Where do we find your repo then?



  • @chaeron
    Thx for asking.

    Repo-link was mentioned above, @rejoe2 said in 💬 Temperature Sensor:

    If you are interested: here .

    Btw: the sketches have been updated and compile now also with MySensors 2.2.0-beta. But to be honest, I didn't test them with hardware until now. So feedback is appreciated :simple_smile:.



  • Additionally: There is also a multibus version included that uses different timings for reading each of the buses.
    For using this sketch, I'm not sure wheter some changes in the DallasTemperature-lib also is required (it is based on an very recent example of the maintainer's guthub version; should be linked in the Arduino Library Manager; I myself applied some changes wrt. this in my local libs).
    I may aslo post this in case anyone's interested (and these mods are necessary).



  • @rejoe2 Any idea why the DallasTemperatureSimple from your GitHub not presenting in Domoticz?

    @Dick you are missing

    #define MY_NODE_ID x

    where x is the unique sensor ID you want to assign to node. If look in the gateway or node log you will see the node asking for an ID


  • Mod

    @gohan Domticz is capable of handing out node ids so using the default auto setting is perfectly fine.

    But yes, the debug log from node and gateway will help a lot in determining what the problem is.



  • @mfalkvidd I already tried a fixed node ID but that was not the solution so I checked the log of domoticz and this is the result:

    2017-08-19 11:59:30.260 MySensors: Node: 48, Sketch Name: Temperature Sensor

    So it see the node but it does not pop up as a new device.
    The Arduino log shows this:

  • Mod

    @Dick that output doesn't seem to match the sketch you posted. The output says the node is a repeater, but I don't see any repeater activation in the sketch.



  • @mfalkvidd Thx for your observation, I didn't realise that. Did you try to use this sketch also?
    As FHEM is the controller sw I use, I am not able to really test this kind of behaviour, that more seemed to be related to domoticz (or other trouble wrt. to this individual MySensors-installation).

    @Dick Imo, the node at least when trying to register behaves as necessary: it presents itself to the controller (but the chosen ID seems to be already bound to a different node). In FHEM - not for the node itself but for individual readings - it is necessary to reload the page to see updated readings, if it's the very first time they are sent from node's side (hope, you can follow my thoughts). Maybe domoticz shows a similar behaviour?


  • Mod

    @rejoe2 could you clarify which observation you are referring to?



  • @mfalkvidd I was reffering to this part of the serial output:

    0 MCO:BGN:INIT REPEATER,CP=RNNRA--,VER=2.1.1
    

    Imo, the only thing that is not standard is to also use a comment when presenting the individual temp-sensors:

    present(i + DS_First_Child_ID, S_TEMP, charAddr);
    

    FHEM doesn't care about that (just ignores this comment), but maybe other controllers don't like that at all. (I added this as it is a possible feature and may be helpful for others), but @Dick , you could try to delete the last argument.


  • Mod

    @rejoe2 the repeater feature is disabled by default, so Dick must have activated it by a define.



  • @Dick Besides the inclusion mode, in FHEM one also has to activate a feature called "autocreate". Is there a comparable routine, and in case if: did you turn it on?
    If you have a look in your domoticz log, there most likely appear further trials to register, or not?



  • @mfalkvidd For your info, I started the sketch cleareeprom to clear my Nano, loaded the script mentioned already and the log I posted is the same so the log must fit the sketch for the DallasTemperatureSimple. The repeater is activated or is it better to turn it off?


  • Mod

    @Dick the repeater feature is turned off by default so there is something very fishy going on.
    Have you modified any of the MySensors library files?



  • @rejoe2 What I see in the Log of Domoticz is that all the nodes are registered and are visible in Black the only blue one is only the Dalles node

  • @mfalkvidd I changed the dalles lib with an older one, because in a disussion a wile ago it was advised to get it working. Now this modified Sketch is available I replaced the dalles lib again the latest one. For the rest nothing.


  • Mod

    @Dick this part

    2201 !MCO:SLP:REP
    

    of the initial log you posted says that the node cannot sleep because it is a repeater.

    This part of the sketch:

      // sleep() call can be replaced by wait() call if node need to process incoming messages (or if node is repeater)
      sleep(conversionTime);
    

    explains that if the node is a repeater, the sleep call must be replaced by wait. If it is not replaced, the temperature sensors will not be ready when getTemp... is called, so the node will not send any values. Domoticz only lists sensors that have sent a value.



  • @mfalkvidd I chaned the Sleep into Wait but the same log in both Domoticz and on my Arduino. I thought it was an easy go but it appear not to be.
