Hi, I'm new. Which radio should I use?
Hello, I am new here. My name is Benjamin. I have been writing code for many years and only just recently beginning to look at writing my own Arduino sketches and wiring circuits. My question is: what type of radio will communicate with my zwave network and controller. I am currently using veralite.
My goal is to build a servo which will open and close my blinds using a Arduino nano.
@chef welcome to the community!
MySensors will be able to communicate with your controller as long as it is listed on the controller page. Vera is supported. This means that MySensors will be able to fetch information from your controller and push information to your controller.
MySensors will not be able to communicate with your z-wave devices directly, regardless of what radio you use.
MySensors supports the nrf24l01+ and rfm radios. See https://www.mysensors.org/build/connect_radio and https://www.mysensors.org/about/components#the-radio for more information. These threads 1 2 and 3 have more information on the differences between the radios.
Some projects that might be of use:
Thank you for the prompt reply and resources.
It is appreciated.
