Looks cool! Do you have experience with capacities switches? I did not play much with them. afraid to use close to AC interference though...
You need to use a capacitive IC with active shielding, basically you have an extra electrode around your touch electrode and the touch IC will compare capacitive change of the touch electrode with capacitive change from the shield electrode. If the change is due to electrical interference then both electrodes will be changed in a similar way and the IC will not trigger.
I have finally gotten back to this project and created a working sketch that communicates with my Vera controller. I have this set up as a 3 button on/off (6 switches on the board) and have that working successfully with Vera. I also have my Vera sending temperature data back to the OLED display. It alternates between the outside temp and room temp for my master bedroom where the switch is located. I have posted the Arduino sketch under source code here.
@kimot I am not handling that situation. I'm taking for granted ssr will do his job. Maybe there's some ssr safety topic I'm unaware? Suggestions for a v3.0 are welcome.
About the temperature measuring... I use two sensors. The one in the board protects electronics from temperatures beyond design (60°C). It's near the ssr because the ssr's derating curve is the most limiting condition.
The control sensor is placed in the bottom of the heater. It connects to the board through a 3 pin header connector.
In general, yes, the MySensors framework (library?) should support FOTA a couple different ways (read more at link). Were you aware of this, or is there some problem with your particular hardware?
@NielBierman said in FOTA possibilities for remote sensor network:
I don't know yet whether you even need to change your gateway from microcontroller (uC) to Single Board Computer (SBC) or not. However if you do (or are looking for a controller, or whatever), by all means, please do yourself (and all of us) a favor and do a little more research as there are lots of better options out there for SBC nowadays, than RPi!
For me, uC have been fine for gateway although I do use some SBC for controllers, MQTT broker, and various other GNU/Linux based servers/services and they are wonderful for that. But perhaps your needs are different from mine.
