relays do not work using button

  • I have a working temperature compare node and I want to add2 relays with button. I am searching already for of few hours e why the relays are not working after using the buttons.
    Can anyone give me a tip ?

    @Dick the same debouncer instance can't be used for two buttons. You need to create another instance.

    To stay with the naming convention in your sketch, create

    Bounce debouncer_1 = Bounce();

    and change all calls for the second button to use debouncer_1. You'll also need to use different child ids for the two messages.

    Thanks for the info. I adjusted what you mentioned but still no reaction. this is what I have changed.

    InBounce debouncer = Bounce(); 
    int oldValue=0;
    bool state;
    Bounce debouncer_1 = Bounce(); 
    int oldValue_1=0;
    bool state_1;
    unsigned long previousMillis = 0;
    MySensor gw;
    MyMessage msg2(CHILD_ID,V_LIGHT);//relay_pin A1
    MyMessage msg3(CHILD_ID_1,V_LIGHT);//relay_pin A2`

    @Dick there are lots of more places that need update. Maybe you should try first to get one relay with one button working? Doing everything at once might be a too steep learning curve.

  • @mfalkvidd
    you are right, i try to make one relay working.
