I can´t see my new noods on my vera...help




  • Hero Member

    @conde I don't use vera but know that sometimes in domoticz a new node will not show in the device list until it has sent some data first. have you tried pushing the button (or grounding pin 3 momentarily) to see if that makes the node visible.

    Perhaps you can post the output from your serial monitor, that might give some clues.



  • Thanks for replying, this is what I get ... I do not understand anything. I'm still learning. Can you see a bug?0_1494683362148_Sin título.png

    My gw has the latest version, and the latest libraries also.

    @conde Looking at your serial output it is clear that your node is having problems establishing a stable uplink . It appears to be connecting to both a repeater node as well as the gateway but seems unable to maintain the connection to either of them.
    You will need to find out why this is happening, some of the common causes are inadequate power supply, node too far from gateway/repeater or too many obstacles in the way.

    Have you fitted a capacitor to the nrf to help stabilise the power. I used to use a 4.7uf but now find that something closer to 47uf seems to work best for me.

    Perhaps try moving the node closer to the gateway and see if that helps.

    I see no message being sent from your node to indicate you have grounded pin 3. I would still suggest to try that once you have a stable connection and see if that will make the node visible in Vera.

    Perhaps someone who uses Vera can shed some more light on why the node is not showing up?



  • hi...look it work to me now with this skech

    and with libraries version 1.5.4, do you know why? what is the difference?
    I see de differences in the code but i dont understand
    And for more information im use de Git Repo for UI7 on my vera edge
    I do not mind using an old version of the libraries, but what I was interested in was the code of a relay with button actuator.

    And one more time...thank you for your help and interest

    @conde The problem you are having is caused by the node not connecting properly to the gateway. in your original serial output it is clear that the node never presents itself so is not likely to be seen by your controller. You must try the things i have suggested in my previous post. Once your node has a stable connection i think it will present and be recognised.

    The 1..5.4 sketch works because in the serial output you can see there are no errors so the node presents and functions as normal.

    For me the changes 2.1.1 made to transport caused some of my nodes to become unstable. It was fixed by fitting a larger capacitor to the nrf module. I think you need to concentrate on getting a reliable connection to fix your problems.



  • I had similar problems with some of my nodes. To fix it I forced them to use the repeater as the parent node. Once I did that the nodes worked perfectly.
