mysprinkler for mysensor and home assistant not working together



  • first of all i must admit that i'm quite a noob. so please forgive if my questions seem stupid.

    i built the irrigation system board, and it seems to work electronically. i also built a serial gateway with the same 3.3v arduino pro mini that i used for the irrigation controller.

    the serial gateway is connected to the usb (with a serial - rs232 converter which also powers the arduino and the nrf2401 with 3.3v). i added the gateway to configuration.yaml

    mysensors:
      gateways:
        - device: '/dev/ttyUSB0'
          baud_rate: 38400
          persistence_file: 'home/homeassistant/mysensors.json'
      optimistic: false
      persistence: true
      retain: true
      version: '2.0'
    

    the sensor.yaml has this added:

      - platform: mysensors
        port: "/dev/ttyUSB0"
    

    the serial debug of the irrigation controller looks like that:

    there seems to be some communication between the hub and the sensor which is ok. but i don't see any mysensor sensors in home assistant and i don't understand what the log errors below mean, or how to get rid of them.

    You need to send initial values for each device. That's what's missing.

    Also remove the mysensors sensor platform from your configuration yaml. That's not needed.

    thanks martin. i read that, but i have no idea how to send those initial values?
    is this something that i have to implement in the sensor's code?

    https://home-assistant.io/components/mysensors/#presentation says:

    Send at least one initial value per V_TYPE. In version 2.0 of MySensors this has to be done in the loop function.

    is it something like that?

        Serial.println("Sending initial value");
        send(msg.set(state?RELAY_ON:RELAY_OFF));
    

    if that is the case, i assume it's missing in the irrigation controller's code. correct?


  • Plugin Developer

    @johannes-schoeller

    Yes, something like that.

    I'm not familiar with the irrigation controller code. But your log is missing the output about sending values, so I assume it's missing from the sketch.



  • thanks that did work. basically it worked the very next day w/o changing anything. it just did send initial values. so problem solved.

    but i have another issue. now that everything is working so far, and i see the switch automatically added in my home assistant dashboard, i can use them and click them. this is seen by the sensor and it acts appropriately.

    but how the irrigation controller is meant to be used is: it ASKS the hub for data. this data is a) time (works!) and b) duration to activate each zone on button press.

    so it has 4 irrigation zones, each of them ca be assigned 2 values, one is how long it's turned on when activated alone, and one how long it's turned on when you run all zones, one after the other.

    but i don't know how to set those values in home assistant so i can send them back to the sensor.

    this is what the sensor looks like in home assistant:

  • @martinhjelmare said in mysprinkler for mysensor and home assistant not working together:

    you mean this form configuration.yaml:

    mysensors:
      gateways:
        - device: '/dev/ttyUSB0'
          baud_rate: 38400
          persistence_file: 'home/homeassistant/mysensors.json'
      optimistic: false
      persistence: true
      retain: true
      version: '2.0'
    

    or this from sensors.yaml:

    - platform: mysensors
        port: "/dev/ttyUSB0"
    

    EDIT: got is sorted out myself. NOT the configuration part is wrong, but the sensors.yaml part is too much. i removed it, and it works fine. thank you!!



  • i investigated further and now i know that the sensor is requesting VAR_1 to VAR_3 and afaik this is not working with home assistant.
    any ideas how to circumvent this? i need to set the value in HA and then the sensor is requesting it. how would this be accomplished in HA?


  • Plugin Developer

    @johannes-schoeller

    Currently you can hack it by adding those value types and values to the JSON persistence file, keeping the structure. It's not a real solution, but should work. They will get represented as sensor entities in home assistant. If you want to avoid entity_id clashes the V_VAR1 and V_VAR3 should be placed on different children.

    I have on the roadmap to add an option for inital values in the mysensors home assistant config section.



  • @johannes-schoeller
    hi im currently struggling with the same problem, i dont suppose you found a solution? i tried to do what martinhjelmare said but obviously i did it wrong. any help would be apreciated anyone. at the moment i have the mysprinkler for mysensor showing in home assistant and if i try start one of the relays it just goes to next relay but doesnt start. it shows on the display 0 sec and i cant find how to set how to put in time for the relays as im a noob lol. cheers

    i wish i would. i now 3d printed a case for it, got it all working so far, but can't make it announce the sensors in HA. no idea, why it worked before, and what's not working now ...



  • @johannes-schoeller did you find a solution? I am struggling to add a water meter pulse sensor to HA UI. Thank you



  • Hi,

    You can fix variable with sending data. In the firmware, you must add this function for place value in this V_VARx

    So, place this function into your setup firmware.

    Where in this case

    MyMessage var1valve(CHILD_ID_SPRINKLER, V_VAR1);
    MyMessage var2valve(CHILD_ID_SPRINKLER, V_VAR2);
    

    This loop repeat for each relay (i) and you can set any value at the end (1) for one minutes and (5) for five minutes.

    That's all.

    void goInitiateValveTime() {
      for (byte i = 0; i <= NUMBER_OF_VALVES; i++)
      {
        send(var1valve.setSensor(i).set(1));
        wait(50);
        send(var2valve.setSensor(i).set(5));
      }
      wait(50);
      lastValve = -1;
    }
    

    Refresh Home Assistant just after run one time your script and value appear in your persistence file.

    Regars,

    /*
    MySprinkler for MySensors
    
    Arduino Multi-Zone Sprinkler Control
    
    May 31, 2015
    
    *** Version 2.0
    
    *** Upgraded to http://MySensors.org version 1.4.1
    *** Expanded for up to 16 Valves
    *** Setup for active low relay board or comment out #define ACTIVE_LOW to switch to active high
    *** Switch to bitshift method vs byte arrays
    *** Changed RUN_ALL_ZONES Vera device to 0 (was highest valve)
    *** Added optional LCD display featuring remaining time, date last ran & current time
    *** Features 'raindrop' and 'clock' icons which indicate sensor is updating valve data and clock respectively
    *** Added single pushbutton menu to manually select which program to run (All Zones or a Single Zone)
    *** Added option of naming your Zones programmatically or with Vera (V_VAR3 used to store names)
    
    Utilizing your Vera home automation controller and the MySensors.org gateway you can
    control up to a sixteen zone irrigation system with only three digital pins.  This sketch
    will create NUMBER_OF_VALVES + 1 devices on your Vera controller
    
    This sketch features the following:
    
    * Allows you to cycle through All zones (RUN_ALL_ZONES) or individual zone (RUN_SINGLE_ZONE) control.
    * Use the 0th controller to activate RUN_ALL_ZONES (each zone in numeric sequence 1 to n)
      using Variable1 as the "ON" time in minutes in each of the vera devices created.
    * Use the individual zone controller to activate a single zone.  This feature uses
      Variable2 as the "ON" time for each individual device/zone.
    * Connect according to pinout below and uses Shift Registers as to allow the MySensors
      standard radio configuration and still leave available digital pins
    * Turning on any zone will stop the current process and begin that particular process.
    * Turning off any zone will stop the current process and turn off all zones.
    * To push your new time intervals for your zones, simply change the variable on your Vera and
      your arduino will call to Vera once a minute and update accordingly.  Variables will also be
      requested when the device is first powered on.
    * Pushbutton activation to RUN_ALL_ZONES, RUN_SINGLE_ZONE or halt the current program
    * LED status indicator
    
    PARTS LIST:
    Available from the MySensors store - http://www.mysensors.org/store/
    * Relays (8 channel)
    * Female Pin Header Connector Strip
    * Prototype Universal Printed Circuit Boards (PCB)
    * NRF24L01 Radio
    * Arduino (I used a Pro Mini)
    * FTDI USB to TTL Serial Adapter
    * Capacitors (10uf and .1uf)
    * 3.3v voltage regulator
    * Resistors (270, 1K & 10K)
    * Female Dupont Cables
    * 1602 LCD (with I2C Interface)
    * LED
    * Push button
    * Shift Register (SN74HC595)
    * 2 Pole 5mm Pitch PCB Mount Screw Terminal Block
    * 3 Pole 5mm Pitch PCB Mount Screw Terminal Block
    * 22-24 gauge wire or similar (I used Cat5/Cat6 cable)
    * 18 gauge wire (for relay)
    * Irrigation Power Supply (24-Volt/750 mA Transformer)
    
    
    INSTRUCTIONS:
    
    * A step-by-step setup video is available here: http://youtu.be/l4GPRTsuHkI
    * After assembling your arduino, radio, decoupling capacitors, shift register(s), status LED, pushbutton LCD (I2C connected to
      A4 and A5) and relays, and load the sketch.
    * Following the instructions at https://MySensors.org include the device to your MySensors Gateway.
    * Verify that each new device has a Variable1, Variable2 and Variable3. Populate data accordingly with whole minutes for
      the RUN_ALL_ZONES routine (Variable1) and the RUN_SINGLE_ZONE routines (Variable 2).  The values entered for times may be zero and
      you may use the defaulet zone names by leaving Variable3 blank.
    * Once you have entered values for each zone and each variable, save the settings by pressing the red save button on your Vera.
    * Restart your arduino; verify the settings are loaded into your arduino with the serial monitor; the array will be printed
      on the serial monitor.
    * Your arduino should slow-flash, indicating that it is in ready mode.
    * There are multiple debug serial prints that can be monitored to assure that it is operating properly.
    * ***THIS SHOULD NO LONGER BE NEEDED*** The standard MySensors library now works. https://bitbucket.org/fmalpartida/new-liquidcrystal/downloads for the I2C library, or use yours

    I have added a sollution to V_VAR problem in both my rain and power pulse meter (check these threads). As said above, Homeassistant will not give an answer to these requests if there are no value in the mysensors json file. Either add this in the hardware code or as I did, request a couple of times to make sure you get the value if there is one. Count these requests and set a upper limit, like five or ten reuqest. Once your each this limit, send the value 0 to HA and this will be updated in the json file and start from there.
