MQTT - NRF24 gateway communication issues
I am trying to setup a little project (my first actually) with a RPI3 (MQTT server + openhab), an arduinio UNO (MQTT client + NRF24 module) and a arduino Mega2560 (wireless sensor node with multiple sensors or actutators). I used the guide in this page http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/diy-smart-home-sensors-arduino-mysensors-openhab/ and read through other topics here in the forum (like the one about the Mega that needs to connect NRF24 module to pins 50 to 53) but I can't get the Mega to initialize as it seems not even getting to the "setup" or "loop" functions. While on the UNO I don't see any error during startup (and nothing more after that), on the Mega I get the following
0 MCO:BGN:INIT NODE,CP=RNNNA--,VER=2.1.0 3 TSM:INIT 4 TSF:WUR:MS=0 11 TSM:INIT:TSP OK 13 TSM:INIT:STATID=2 14 TSF:SID:OK,ID=2 16 TSM:FPAR 1615 TSF:MSG:SEND,2-2-255-255,s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,ft=0,st=OK: 3623 !TSM:FPAR:NO REPLY 3625 TSM:FPAR 5225 TSF:MSG:SEND,2-2-255-255,s=255,c=3,t=7,pt=0,l=0,sg=0,ft=0,st=OK: 7232 !TSM:FPAR:NO REPLY 7234 TSM:FPAR
Just to add more info, I am using these voltage regulators http://www.gearbest.com/transmitters-receivers-module/pp_453011.html
because they looked to me as a good starting point for prototyping instead of start soldering caps and stuff. I also ran ClearEepromConfig on both boards just in case.
From my short experience, I suspect there is something with the radio as long as you see "proper" messages in your openhab logs (if not, try hard coding the node id in the sketch)..
Hi, in fact radio modules with blob where the problems as I got them replaced with IC ones.
