DHT12 + 2Relay + 2Button - Combining Problem



  • Hello
    I tried to combine a DHT12 + 2 Relay incl. Buttons.
    ![alt text](0_1536489069705_SENS-DHT-12.JPG image url)
    Well it works (somtimes longer.. sometimes not..), i combined the Scetches of both but often i have the problme, that the Relays don't act anymore and the buttons didn't either since the beginning...

    i found something on google that i have to change the sleep to wait command so it works little better but after some time it also even quits working.

    what is my mistake???

  • Mod

    @michlb1982 what does the debug log say?



  • Question: First all worked well, until you added the code for the DHT?
    IMO, the

    // Sleep for a while to save energy
      wait(UPDATE_INTERVAL);
    

    part blocks the entire code for most of the time. You should instead use a non-blocking loop structure using millis(). See the https://www.mysensors.org/build/pulse_power example (follow the path, when "#define SLEEP_MODE true" is used).



  • @rejoe2
    thanks for the link.. i will try... and report if it worked..



  • Hello again.. long time ago.. but still here. 😉

    well thankss for the tip... but now i have a other problem...
    the relay will work when the order comes from the gateway ... but when i press the button, nothing happens...
    any ideas?

    @michlb1982 there are no digitalWrite commands in the loop. Withiut digitalWrite, there will be no changes to the relay.



  • @mfalkvidd you are right, but in the original Relay-Scetch there is also no digitalWrite command in the loop-section... https://www.mysensors.org/build/relay
    only in the viod receive message section is a digitalwrite command....

    there is also another problmem...sometimes (i can't say when) there is the RElay not working or works lately.. .maybe it is when the DHT is measuring? i can't explain...


  • Mod

    @michlb1982 yes you are right, sorry for the confusion. The relay will be switched when the node receives ack for the outgoing message.

    Looking at the debug logs (from node and gateway) will probably be the quickest way to figure out what is wrong.



  • well i can't find anything strange in the node debug messages..

    and the acting time delay is only sometimes... i don't know jet how to reproduce it....
    ok with the time delay i can live... but the buttons would be great if the could work...
    any ideas left?


  • Mod

    @michlb1982 when/how many times did you press the button?

    There are no send commands in the log, so the button press was never registered.


  • Mod

    Now I see. During the 30 second wait, no button presses will be registered. You’ll need to use interrupts, or modify the code to not use wait/sleep in the loop.

    This is what rejoe2 mentioned in https://forum.mysensors.org/post/93454



  • @mfalkvidd you are so right!!! the "wait" is the problem... i changed the script.. i use a if to check if the update-interval is over and then i go through the dht loop....
    now the bounce are also working..!

  • Mod

    @michlb1982 great work, thanks for reporting back



  • @michlb1982 Congratulations also from my side 😄 !

    One additional remark: In case you want to use more relays and buttons, you may hav a closer look to the use of array functions. Good, but rather complex example: https://forum.mysensors.org/post/51488
