[Solved]Radio Error on Sensor



  • Hi,

    I am a starter. I build my gateway and this seems to work! No error messages and when I attach a local sensor and I can see this information on the controller (Homey). But when I create a sensor device I get and error in the logging which I do not understand. I spend the whole day but I cannot find the issue. Tried different nrf24l01 radio modules but no change.

    See logging below. What could be wrong?

    TSM:INIT
    TSM:RADIO:OK

    @martim This is a common power-related issue. Try adding a larger cap on your radio(s) (>=10uF)



  • I tried this already but no differences (tried 4,7 uF until 47uF). Below I have the start log where something is about an CHKID fail:

  • Admin

    @martim That looks already better:
    (1) make sure to add a large cap on both, GW and node
    (2) your controller software does not appear to assign IDs (hence the CHKID:FAIL) - set a static ID using:

    #define NODE_ID 123
    


  • @tekka

    Thanks for helping!

    I already have this in my code. This is the code for my Node:

    #define MY_BAUD_RATE 115200
    
    // Enable debug prints
    #define MY_DEBUG
    
    #define OPEN 1
    #define CLOSE 0
    
    
    // Enable and select radio type attached
    #define MY_RADIO_NRF24
    
    #include <MySensors.h>
    
    #define NODE_ID 123
    
    MyMessage msg(NODE_ID, V_TRIPPED);
    uint8_t value = OPEN;
    
    void setup()
    {
    }
    
    void presentation() {
      // Send the sketch version information to the gateway and Controller
      sendSketchInfo("Dummy sensor", "1.0");
    
       present(NODE_ID, S_DOOR);
    }
    
    void loop()
    {
        value = value == OPEN ? CLOSE : OPEN;
        send(msg.set(value));
        sleep(10000);
    }
    

    and it still gives this message? Can this be an error in the Gateway?


  • Mod

    @martim

    
    #define NODE_ID 123
    

    must be done before

    #include <MySensors.h>

    thanks. But still same error!?!


  • Mod

    @martim and you followed tekka's recommendation on adding capacitors?



  • @mfalkvidd

    Yes I did. 47uF

    @martim the node is still requesting an ID. Are you sure you moved the #define NODE_ID 123 ?

    @martim uupps, my bad - should be MY_NODE_ID instead of NODE_ID



  • @tekka

    That was indeed the trick :joy: :thumbsup: This is really awesome.

    Final question. The Node register know with the GW if I am correct. And when I change a port how fast is this send to the gateway?

    I would like to connect a doorbell and use an interrupt when someone is pressing on the doorbell.


  • Mod

    @martim the current code sleeps 10 seconds. So it might take up to 10 seconds before a press is registered. The sleep can be modified to wake on interrupt instead. See https://www.mysensors.org/download/sensor_api_20#sleeping for general i formation about the sleep function and https://www.mysensors.org/build/motion for an example that wakes on interrupt.



  • @mfalkvidd

    Thanks! Some study to do :)
