My Node doesn't talk to Gateway!



  • Hi all,
    I've just jumped in, so I'm starting to build some gateways and nodes. The first pair I'm bauilding is nRF based, an NodeMCU w/ MQTT gateway, and a ProMini with an easy DHT11. Both sketches are "vanilla" from Examples; the nRFs are socketed to an adapter with an AMS for 5->3v with a 10uF capacitor, each no more that 20cm far from each other.

    So, they pairing - the node finds its parent, but they get stuck during communication:
    gateway:

    I've added some extra debug switches found here on the forum, but it's not adding nothing interesting o readable.

    I've tried switching some nFR, I have some more at home (I'm a traveller!) I could try this weekend....
    Maybe the DHT is not reading, so the payload is shorter - 7 chars instead of 32 ?

    Any other suggestions to debug this?

    Thanks all!

    Marco


  • Mod

    have you tried with the mockmysensor sketch just to see if there are any changes?



  • Uh, no! I didn't read about it. Gosh, I could have tried the sensors net much sooner! :( :D

    I'll try it... hopely tonite.

    TIA!


  • Mod

    you would have still needed the arduino and radio modules to run the mockmysensor sketch



  • A small update. well, uploaded the mockmysensor sketch and gateway and nodes are talking flawlessly!
    I should take note: first, power the antennas directly from source. 2. upload mockmysensors

    Thanks @gohan !
