My very first mysensors node!



  • Hi!

    I'm starting my home automation journey and the architecture will be autonomous mysensors-nodes also controlled by Home Assistant.
    Maybe some sonoff's for some special needs.

    My house has 3 floors and the middle floor is 100% renovated 5 years ago so there I have to make compromises but the other two floors we are renovating and also recabling all the electrics so it's easy to get all cables routed to a central place for automation control.

    I already have Home Assistant running a few months and its collecting sensor data from my geothermal heat pump, UPS device and some software running on my home server.

    This first node is a kind on POC and wife approval node. It goes to a hallway in my basement which we are renovating at the moment.
    The node has:

    • 5V power from the AIO (maybe I'll need a fuse? or this https://www.openhardware.io/view/504/HLK-PM01-breakout-board)
    • Arduino Pro Mini 5V for the brains
    • NRF24 radio
    • DHT22 for temperature and humidity
    • A relay to control lights
    • Standard Finnish light switch (existing one)
    • Hall sensor for laundry room door

    The idea is to make the system fault tolerant and not dependant of Home Assistant which I have to update from time to time and which runs on RPi3 which can fail.

    Other nodes I'm planning:

    • Water pump monitoring and control
    • Electricity monitor
    • Freezer monitoring
    • Laundry room machines monitoring
    • Lights inside and outside of the house
    • Temperature sensors to all rooms
    • Control of under-floor heating valves (21 at the moment)

    Congratulations 🙂



  • I have problem now with Home Assistant and this node. It works perfectly reading temperature, humidity and the door status.

    But with the light switch if HA goes to a state where light status is "on" but brightness is "0" it doesn't respond until I manually set the brightness to "100". I tried this with mysensors library version 2.3.1 and 2.2.0 but the behaviour is the same. My gateway version is 2.1.0

    Here is the code for the node. There is nothing special on HA end. I'm running hass.io latest version 0.84.6 and lovelace GUI. Sorry for the comments in the code, they are part english and part finnish 🙂

    Just this issue to solve and one package from China and I'll get the power supplys and nodes ready. Then pretty soon I'll have 10 mysensors nodes running! I already started with some Sonoff's in the middle froor, four now installed and one waiting for a suitable application.
