Including new sensor problem

  • Sorry, but I`m a newbie of this. What do I do wrong?

    I made a new BinarySwitchSleep sensor that I trying to include to my Vera. I go to My Sensors plugin and start the including but right away it says "0 devices found".

    Could someone please explain exactly how this process should be done.

    I saw on the site about it and found this "Start inclusion mode on the Arduino Vera device by pressing the "Start" button. Inclusion mode is normally active for 1 minute."

    What start button???

    @miro - Hello!
    When you are building a gateway you can add a "Inclusion mode button"
    See here:

    Im not sure about Vera, but my guess it should work without and/or you can manually start inclusion mode from vera GUI.

  • Now when I trying to verify the BinarySwitchSleepSensor sketch it says "Error compiling for board Arduino Pro or Pro Mini."


  • Hardware Contributor

    @miro - then you have made a coding error. Maybe a typo somewhere.

  • Then I think there is a bug on this sketch. Because I just downloaded the new version and tried to upload.

  • Hardware Contributor

    @miro - maybe you should upload the code and error message and im sure we can help you out.

  • Sorry for late answer

    @miro seems like the Arduino IDE is unable to find the MySensors library. How did you install the library? Which version did you install?

    Instructions for installing the library are available at if you need them.

  • @mfalkvidd You were right. My mistake.

    Now there is a new error message when try to upload the scetch. Any ideas?

    @miro - check your connection/wiring from the programmer to your board.

  • There was something wrong on the sensor so I made a new one. Now it looks ok in the serial monitor "I THINK"?

    But I still can`t get it included in Vera Edge UI7?

    I did a test with the button that was written here before, but that function I have in Vera so not nessecary.
    (When I activated the button on pin 3, it activated the vera UI button)

    When I click on START to include the sensor it just says "0 devices found" and nothing happends. What is the problem?
    Now I have no clue.

  • I tried to include a different motion sensor and that workt on the first try. This is strange.

  • The only thing I changed in parts is that I use a NRF24L01+ with antenna. But I don`t think I need to change anything in the code for that?

    And I use a Arduino Pro mini 3.3V with two AA Batteries.
