Arduino Pro Mini vs Arduino Nano for SerialGateway?



  • Hi folks!
    I am new around here and very much interested in getting things to work!
    I have some temperature sensors built on Pro mini's with dallas & radio (nfr24);
    I have a raspberry pi B+ model;
    so all I am missing is a serialgateway. I found this:
    http://mysensors.org/build/serial_gateway
    but it refers to Arduino Nano.
    Thing is, I would like to use an arduino pro mini (Atmel 328, 8Mhz ) instead, to keep cost-efficiency (via ftdi module).
    Can i use the same code snippet as provided by the page above?
    I think not, but before starting development I wanted to double-check if someone had tried the same before?

    Thanks!

    Pro mini is only important for serial gateway if you intent to use Vera as controller.

    The raspberry will probably recognize it fine.

    One more piece of info:
    I am running piDome.
    I hooked the radio to the pro mini (following instructions from the wiki) and attached it to the RPy via ftdi / USB; then I flashed it with the snippet provided in the wiki (which in the wiki is given for the nano).
    Although from piDome I can see the driver, it appears no devices are currently visible.
    Is there an easy way to verify connectivity between the serial gw and the sensors without pidome?

    Hook it up to your computer and look in IDE Serial Monitor?



  • @hek : Thanks for the answers; just for my better understanding, so the code snippet (given in the wiki ) for configuring an Arduino Nano as Serial GW can be used for a mini pro as well?

    If you're talking about SerialGateway.ino.. then yes.
