RFM69HCW Feather M0 MQTT



  • Im trying to combine the GatewayEsp8266MQTTClient and lafleurs soil moisture sketch. i keep getting this error when compiling

    MyTransportRFM69.cpp: In function 'bool transportInit()':

    MyTransportRFM69.cpp:171:42: error: expected primary-expression before ',' token

    if (_radio.initialize(MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY, _address, MY_RFM69_NETWORKID))

    anyone have some suggestions? am i declaring the frequency wrong?


  • Mod

    @andrew-maynard welcome to the MySensors community!
    You may have declared the frequency wrong, but it is hard to tell without knowing how you declared it. Could you share how you declare the frequency?

    If you haven't already, take a look at the documentation: https://www.mysensors.org/apidocs/group__RFM69SettingGrpPub.html#ga3abb7e6bc4ad07943afe0ce3e381c9ec



  • ive been reading your responses everywhere. lol i had hoped you would respond.

    @andrew-maynard this is how the frequency is defined:

    #define MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY   (RFM69_433MHZ)
    

    Remove these two lines:

    #define MY_RFM69_FREQUENCY 
    #define RF69_433MHZ            // Define our Frequency of 433 MHz
    

    In addition to the documentation I linked before, you can also see the section "Configuring MySensors for RFM69" at https://www.mysensors.org/build/connect_radio#rfm6995-&-arduino

    @andrew-maynard what board and board version are you using? Check the beginning of the output when compiling, it should look like this:

    Using board 'd1_mini' from platform in folder: C:\Users\Micke\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\esp8266\hardware\esp8266\2.4.1
    Using core 'esp8266' from platform in folder: C:\Users\Micke\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\esp8266\hardware\esp8266\2.4.1
    

    The ESP8266MQTTClient example compiles fine for me, using MySensros 2.3.0.



  • @mfalkvidd Im sorry I was being dummy and overthinking it. I'm using a feather M0 with rfm69hcw. I was under the impression even the client would need some MQTT info. I managed to get the sketch compiling and getting some output from serial monitor but its not consistent at all. I can see through domoticz log that its connected to mysensor. The sketch is a basic Temperatureandhumidity nothing changed except radio type. Thank you for the documentation! helped to clear things up.

    @andrew-maynard you can use the log parser to get more information about what the log says. In your case, the sensor node is not getting a reply from your gateway. Could you post the gateway log as well?



  • I'm thinking of switching to esp8266 gateway. maybe get that working then try again with raspberry pi? I'm not ready to give up. I dont see as much documentation though.


  • Mod

    @andrew-maynard what type of documentation are you looking for?



  • oh I didnt mean it as not enough documentation in total. you guys put some serious hard work in this project and I really do appreciate it. I would think you guys are paid! I just meant in terms of raspberry pi as a gateway with rfm69hcw. Am I wrong? btw this is one of the liveliest communities I've experienced! once again thank you and I do appreciate it!



  • I'm on the beginner side so it seems a little easier to change a few things in the esp8266gateway sketch and go.


  • Mod

    @andrew-maynard I'd say that if you have Linux experience, the Raspberry Pi gateway is probably easier to configure and troubleshoot (since it will be a familiar environment). But if you're not already familiar with Linux, learning Linix+MySensors at the same time will be harder than using the esp8266 gateway.



  • This is the debug from the gateway.
    If for some reason the transceiver isn't working it should say in debug, correct?

    the debug can tell you if spi is working ok.
    when you get FPAR NO REPLY it could be because of bad rfm69 interrupt. but your define looks ok..
    could you try to add in your sketch define this one:

    #define MY_RFM69_RST_PIN 4
    

    As your rfm69 reset signal is routed to D4..

  • @scalz YES!!! I think that was the problem on the Feather m0 side. still not receiving messages though. i did test it out with

    pi@raspberrypi3:~ $ mosquitto_pub -t 'domoticz/in/MyMQTT' -m '0,29'
    

    I see it in the domoticz log.

    I figure it cant hurt to show my ./configure.

    pi@raspberrypi3:~ $ ./configure --my-gateway=mqtt --my-controller-ip-address=192.168.1.110 --my-mqtt-publish-topic-prefix=domoticz/out/MyMQTT --my-mqtt-subscribe-topic-prefix=domoticz/in/MyMQTT --my-mqtt-client-id=pi  --my-transport=rfm69 --my-rfm69-frequency=433 --my-is-rfm69hw^C
    

    Am I missing something? Is there a something specific I should enter below for my client id?

    --my-mqtt-client-id=pi 
    

    Thanks again for responding. I appreciate it!



  • @mfalkvidd I will try it on an esp8266 tomorrow and see if anything changes. When going back versions is there anything else i need to do besides deleting directory and going through ./configure again? I will try the 2.2 version first. I already went from 2.3.1 to 2.3.0.


  • Mod

    @andrew-maynard deleting and starting over is fine. If you're comfortable with git you can switch branch/tag instead of deleting.



  • @mfalkvidd I switched gateway to esp8266

    When i try to test it using

    pi@raspberrypi3:~ $ mosquitto_sub -v -t 'domoticz/out/MyMQTT'
    
    

    nothing happens and freezes cmd prompt. it does publish though

    pi@raspberrypi3:~ $ mosquitto_pub -t 'domoticz/in/MyMQTT' -m '0,29'
    

    I have to be missing something stupid!



  • Would it be wise to close this and move it to Domoticz MySensors forum? It looks like its an issue with mqtt or domoticz.
