temp sensor keep on loging status switch

  • I have a working sensor that checks the temp om 2 places. If needed it wil switch on/of a Fan. That is all working perfect only this sensor logs continue the status of the switch. i am using Domoticz.
    the log looks like this:

    Does anyone know why it produce that large amount of logs?

  • The nodes send the data every 30 second, the log is ok.
    You will get one line in the log very time a node report something.
    It look like you also have an Event that gets trigger every time one of the nodes send data.

  • Yes you are right there is an Event. Do I have to add a timer or delay function in it or something else?

  • Depends on what you want to do with these temp/relay?

    The log will still get all these lines even if you add a delay.

  • this sensor only messure the temp on 2 different locations and as seen in the Event, if the temp inside (TEMP binnen temp) <- 20 and the temp in the glasshouse is >-26 the fan switch on and the second part of the Event only switch of the Fan if the temp inside is to high (>-26) or the temp in the glasshouse is <-27. that is all I want with this project. I only want the mesurement every 15 min for example

  • Ok.

    Then change Sleeptime to 900000, today you have 30000

    900000 = 60000 * 15 minutes

  • that was easy, I do it right away. Thanks for the support and this stopped me for changing other parts of the event of the code of the sensor.
    Have a nice day!

  • This is not a battery node, right?

    Because this node never sleep, so it will consume battery all the time.

  • no good to mention, That is a new project for me to build an efficience battery powered node. In this case it is powered by an external power source.
