Combining relay and temperature sketch



  • @bluezr1 Sure... But imo it is easier to stick with the given examples, they may be much easier to understand than e.g. this one😁


  • MySensors Evangelist

    @rejoe2 NIce example thanks.



  • @sincze Thanks too.
    Just to mention: I don't use the internal functionality for the servo any more - this part didn't work to my personal satisfaction.
    If you're interested: The RS485 variant in the repo is even more complex - it uses three Pins for 1wire with different timings, but may require some tweeks in the libs to compile.



  • Thank you so much Newzwaver. I've been trying to combine two sketches together and this is my first successful one. I may never be as good as most of the people on this forum, although I don't plan on stopping with combining more than one sensor to one node -- need to get rid of my double nodes I have in various places. πŸ™‚

    When I ran your sketch and the relays didn't show up in vera. So after I copied and pasted from the relay sketch posted by hek under void presentation, I ended up with errors. So after comparing the two (yours to hek's) I ended up with this that seems to be working.

    As of right now I'm looking into what rejoe2 said about using wait instead of sleep, unless I'll be fine with what I have?

  • @bluezr1 Great to hear about you having first positive results.

    Nevertheless, imo the sketch you posted is designed against some basic principles.

    First: all main functions should be placed in the loop() section (not present in this sketch). The posted sketch does all the measurements within an exceptional routine called receive(). This should be reserved for all functionality that really is related to receive any info from controller side - obviously doing measurements does not belong to that category.

    I also started as complete noob to coding around 30 months ago and just followed the examples (mostly from Build section), so be assured: you will also learn how to do this just by following these examples and ask yourself why things are solved the way they are.

    If you need a good example of a combined sketch, have a look at the atmospheric pressure one (or the DHT (humidity?) sketch you have used here): They already have two children... From the BME180-Preassure you may follow the route to the BME280 examples available in the forum here or in my repo (#98, RS485).

    Btw: In the header section of your sketch there are also two defines left not necessary (just as a info, this does not cause any trouble for the moment).

    haha combining sketches... frees up some hardware πŸ˜‰ for other stuff.

  • @rejoe2 I listened to what you said and then went back over it, it's working much better now. What you said "why things are solved the way they are" made me stand back for a moment. I do Maintenance for a living and work on everything from HVAC, boilers, Kitchen equipment to hanging drywall. There's always one thing I always tell myself when troubleshooting something, what's the sequence of operation. Well I'm not to savvy with writing code although the same principles applies. Maybe I just needed someone to tell me that, I don't know.

    Anyways, thank you

    I updated the sketch I posted in my last post with the changes I made.



  • @sincze Does not only free HW for other stuff, but also makes things easier once they work as expected. I have to admitt this in some cases may need hard work to get to that point.
    What's the "other stuff" showed on your picture?

    @bluezr1 Looks like a big step ahead!

    Imo next step in your code should be to have a look at the remarks I already posted and replace the sleep() by wait(). By now, you have a rather fast update rate of your values, this may not be necessary and also may lead to a early wear-out of your DHT (?):

    @rejoe2 said in Combining relay and temperature sketch:

    Imo better aproach:
    Use the https://www.arduino.cc/en/tutorial/BlinkWithoutDelay - principle. Additionally a wait() is used instead of sleep() for the time to fulfill measurements (DS18B20 in my case).
    If you need a working implementation of the blink-without-delay function within MySensors, see the https://www.mysensors.org/build/pulse_power example.

    Please keep in mind changing existent posts like you did may lead to irritation wrt to the remarks in following posts. You may better show the resulting code as an update in your next answer and add a remark wrt. to enhancements in the earlier one.



  • @rejoe2 Just so I know that I’m not heading down the wrong path and wasting everyone’s time, I should be looking into the use of millis correct?



  • @bluezr1 Yes, millis() is the right thing to look for (or the simpleTimer2-lib, that internally does the same things). But keep in mind: sleep() and millis() don't fit well together, as after every sleep() millis() will be reset... Use wait() instead of sleep() in case you need short periods eg. between initialising and completion of measurements.



  • This is where I'm currently at, it seems to be working really well. Thanks rejoe2

  • @bluezr1 Looks already really good.
    Question: does the receive() work while the loop does the wait()? I'm not sure about that, because I am used to do the millis()-nonblocking-loop.



  • @rejoe2 I hope that this answers your question. I use Vera as my home controller and tried multiple times turning (sometimes randomly) on and off both relays without any misses as soon as Vera allowed me. Meaning, Vera won’t let you instantly turn a device on and then off or vise versa.

    Do you think I’ll be ok the way it is or should I keep working on this project?



  • @bluezr1 As it seems to work to your satisfaction, you may leave it as is.
    FHEM as a controller allows direct interaction with switching devices, and it is really astonishing to hear Vera may have some restrictions wrt. that.

    But I didn't test your code in my setup, this is why I asked about your observations.

    I may be wrong, but imo, the code isn't yet perfect, so you might keep that in mind for the future in case you run into trouble. In case you need some sort of timer for other projects, you would miss the opportunity to learn how to use this...



  • @rejoe2 It's working

    Although I'm not sure if this part makes sense?

    static const uint64_t UPDATE_INTERVAL = 60000;
    unsigned long interval = 60000;
    unsigned long previousMillis = 0;```

  • @bluezr1 Looks like you did a working non-blocking loop 😁
    Didn't do a too close look to all things, but the only header definition that seems to be no longer necessary is the UPDATE_INTERVAL, as this variable isn't used any longer.

    But beside that small remark: πŸ‘



  • <<edit>>It was me, my bad, it's working.

    For some reason if I pull a wire for the relay it'll still show a change within Vera. I can turn them on and off and they'll show up as if they were turned on and off. Before if I pulled a wire to the relays vera wouldn't show any changes.

    Thank you so much rejoe2 for not just giving me the answers but by pushing me to do it myself. You pointed me to where I needed to be and I thank you for that.

    Now you got me wanting to learn even more. πŸ™‚

  • @bluezr1 said in Combining relay and temperature sketch:

    Thank you so much rejoe2 for not just giving me the answers but by pushing me to do it myself. You pointed me to where I needed to be and I thank you for that.

    Now you got me wanting to learn even more. πŸ™‚
    Thanks also a lot for your positive feedback - seems there are more and more people interested in quick fixes, but imo, it's by far better to "learn how to fish".

    For the next steps, I'd recommend to do some more "combinded sketching", based on the existing build examples - but you'll find that easy once you did the next two of them 😁

    One more interesting thing may be working with interrups in non-blocking sketches - please mind the needed type of variable definition to avoid irritating effects πŸ˜‰

    Then you might run into trouble as combining things needs more PINs - then you are forced to have a look on the next level of abstraction: array functions πŸ˜‰ . For a start, you may analyse the multi-button-relay-sketch somwhere around here in the forum.

    Then you are at least on my level of knowledge within one week 😁
