@mfalkvidd said in Using an 802.11g wifi transport:
@eveningstariot If you have wifi, the MySensors library adds almost nothing to your project. Connect your wifi devices directly to your controller, using mqtt or whatever protocols your controller supports.
MySensors was the starting point for me to build my own parts for home automation. It is more than a library:
inspiration for new projects
an API which I more or less transferred to a generic API for other sensors (zWave, homematic...)
I have reduced the usage of radio based sensors (only one active sensor left) and sometimes I get blue, that mysensors has no real solution for my WiFi-based sensors. The solution with one gateway per WiFi node is not appealing. (No auto discovery, many endpoints to one controller...) I switched to MQTT (without mysensors) and direct REST-API calls. But it feels a little bit clumsy.
@andmaster I have mycontroller starting via crontab and this always works for me, you could try that and see how it works for you. Here on pi3 it is working no problem and every reboot mycontroller comes right back up.
If you can I would recommend replacing the SD card with a SSD HDD. They are quite cheap now (less than £20 in UK) and seem much faster and more stable. I have mine connected to pi via usb adaptor and it is working well.
Another thing to keep in mind is that a good quality power supply and good thick cable from power supply to raspberry pi are strongly advised. Pi seems to be affected by power quality easily. I have been around the block a few times with this!
@trs-80 Imo it's not as easy as comparing (or even just counting) some fancy pictures to really make a judge on the "most integrations" issue .
As a FHEM-user (without OpenHAB experience thouhg), I'd state there's at least three or four big systems missing (on the picture collection): HomeMatic / HomeMatic-IP, 1-Wire (it's more than DS18B20 ) and EnOcean. All of them are supported by FHEM, and additionally a lot of "special" stuff (like RS485 protocolls and many others). To get an impression, the commandref is a good starting point). Additionally, there exist a lot more "innofficial" modules for whatever purpose...
So in fact, I've seen quite a few people leaving FHEM in the past (it requires quite some familiarizon) and coming back to it, also from OpenHAB for it's flexibility. Also the level of comfort may vary from integration to integration.
So I'd state, there's not THE nor perfect answer to the question which controller supports the highes number of integrations
Also, ideally, moreso very necessary, the momentary needs to be sorta snappy, as I am planning on connecting to a starter circuit on the generator, so which is why i was thinking more at the node built into the sketch as opposed to the controller, due to lag times in data to/from node
