Can't get MySensors to work - someone got an easy sketch?



  • Hi everybody,

    I have tested so many sketch's from other people, but I can'tget one situation to work.

    My equip:

    2 Arduino Nano with NRF24
    Raspberry 2 with Pimatic or ioBroker
    Arduino 1.8.2
    Mysensor 2.1.1

    From begin:

    I have made a serial Gateway, by using the example in Arduino.

    /**

    * 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
    * The ArduinoGateway prints data received from sensors on the serial link.
    * The gateway accepts input on seral which will be sent out on radio network.
    *
    * The GW code is designed for Arduino Nano 328p / 16MHz
    *
    * Wire connections (OPTIONAL):
    * - Inclusion button should be connected between digital pin 3 and GND
    * - RX/TX/ERR leds need to be connected between +5V (anode) and digital pin 6/5/4 with resistor 270-330R in a series
    *
    * LEDs (OPTIONAL):
    * - To use the feature, uncomment any of the MY_DEFAULT_xx_LED_PINs
    * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
    * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
    * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error
    *

    	// Present locally attached sensors
    }
    
    void loop()
    {
    	// Send locally attached sensor data here
    }
    

    The Debug Log say:

    0;255;3;0;9;MCO:BGN:INIT GW,CP=RNNGA--,VER=2.1.1
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT

    0;255;3;0;9;MCO:BGN:STP
    0;255;3;0;9;MCO:BGN:INIT OK,TSP=1
    

    ioBroker and Pimatic say the same, the Gateway is connected by USB. (in the Log above the gateway isn't connected to the raspberry, but the PC)

    Now I want to add a simply Sensor like a Door- or a Motion Sensor. I Use the example sketch from arduino.

    What is wrong? Can someone help me?

    @maxdorable Welcome on the forum. The first steps are the steepest ;-) it seems like the node cannot find its parent. In many cases this is related to radio problems. Have you tried the steps in the "Troubleshooting" section?


  • Mod

    @maxdorable do you see any message received from the gateway? Keep in mind that NRF24 use quite some peak power during transmission so not all boards can supply enough power and a capacitor is needed on the VCC and GND near the radio. Quite some people got it sorted out (me included=ì) by using one of those adapters with voltage regulator from 5v to 3.3V + capacitor (if not included already in the adapter)
