Parking Sensor & DHT22 combinated



  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to do a sketch with both combinated parking sensor and dht22 but i'm failed.
    Each sketch is working separetely but when i 'm trying together, dht22 values are bad.

    This is my sketch :

    /**
    * The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
    * between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
    * The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
    * repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
    * network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

    * DESCRIPTION
    * Parking sensor using a neopixel led ring and distance sensor (HC-SR04).
    * Configure the digital pins used for distance sensor and neopixels below.
    * NOTE! Remeber to feed leds and distance sensor serparatly from your Arduino. 
    * It will probably not survive feeding more than a couple of LEDs. You 
    * can also adjust intesity below to reduce the power requirements.
    * 
    * Sends parking status to the controller as a DOOR sensor if SEND_STATUS_TO_CONTROLLER 
    * is defined below. You can also use this _standalone_ without any radio by 
    * removing the SEND_STATUS_TO_CONTROLLER define.

    Somebody could help me ?

    Thank you some much guys



  • @ghislain
    The example sketch on this site has some code for the dht in setup() https://www.mysensors.org/build/humidity

    Maybe you 've forgotten to copy this in your dht script?


  • Admin

    Seems strange to initialise the DHT all the time in your loop function. You also seem to spam your gateway with humidity-messages. Check your if-statements.



  • Hi, i'm very bad in code. So i tryied to assemble 2 sketches.

    Gateway is spammed yes...

    I think i need to store value of temperature and humidity, store value of parking sensor (car gone or car parked) and send everything together. It would be more clean. But i have no idea to do that.

    I'm not familiar neither with void loop / setup....

    Thanks



  • This is much better, but too much temperature and humidity value sended

        pixels.show(); // This sends the updated pixel color to the hardware.
      }
    
          }
    

    How can i get out value of temp and hum out of the loop ?

    I can't put delay because the led ring need to be refreshed very fastly.


  • Mod

    There is a minimum time before you can read values from dht, so you could set a check to read dht every 30000 millis so this way you can have the blinking leds and some delay between temp readings



  • Yes, thanks guys.

     * REVISION HISTORY
     * Version 1.0 - Compilation of DhtTemperature & Parking Sensor
     * 
     * DESCRIPTION
     * Parking sensor using a neopixel led ring and distance sensor (HC-SR04).
     * Configure the digital pins used for distance sensor and neopixels below.
     * NOTE! Remeber to feed leds and distance sensor serparatly from your Arduino. 
     * It will probably not survive feeding more than a couple of LEDs. You 
     * can also adjust intesity below to reduce the power requirements.
     * 
     * Sends parking status to the controller as a DOOR sensor if SEND_STATUS_TO_CONTROLLER 
     * is defined below. You can also use this _standalone_ without any radio by 
     * removing the SEND_STATUS_TO_CONTROLLER define.

    This code is working. Variables was declared on 8b so max value at 255. Counter and timer can't take value above 255... Stupid.

    How can i do to only send new value if new value is just more or less 0.2°C for example ?


  • Mod

    Actually the code already checks if last temperature is different from current (see the first "else if" in the loop) but if you want you can change the condition to whatever you prefer in order to send only when difference is over a certain threshold or after a specific amount of time.



  • I make this sketch, it is working, code may be cleaner but it's working...
