[solved] raspberry gateway - installation problems (and more)

  • Hello!
    I just tried to set up a raspberry gateway according to this https://www.mysensors.org/build/raspberry .
    (on raspberry1). everything went smooth, but somehow it's not working:

    pi@MysensorPi:~/MySensors $ ./configure --my-gateway=mqtt --my-controller-ip-address= --my-mqtt-publish-topic-prefix=mysensors-out --my-mqtt-subscribe-topic-prefix=mysensors-in --my-mqtt-client-id=mygateway1
    pi@MysensorPi:~/MySensors $ sudo ./bin/mysgw

    so now on i should ask here 😃
    i used one of these radios (recomendation from @gohan in 2017 :)): https://gearbest.com/transmitters-receivers-module/pp_453011.html and connected it accordingly (except i used 5v pin for VCC)
    first of all i don't understand why it's not working when there were just top c&p a few lines?

    an then i'm not really sure in general what i need to do. what i WANT to do:
    sensors > raspberry pi gateway > openhab controller
    mosquitto is running on my openhab installation, so mqtt would be ok. i searched for a while, but i couldn't find anything noob-proved...

    This means the Raspberry Pi is unable to communicate with the radio module. The most common reason is a wiring problem. Could you post a few photos of the wiring (from different angles)? Maybe we can help spot a problem.

    If you have more than one nrf24 module, see if switching helps to check if the radio is broken.

  • here's the wiring. i checked 3 times and now i rewired again with another nrf24 module - error remains the same:

    @narf I am not familiar with this board but I thought a nrf24l01+ module was supposed to go into the 2x4 female header? Looks to me the reason there is no communication with the radio, is that there is no radio at all.

  • oh boi. had to connect the radio to the board mentioned in the opening post:
    alt text
    and connect the other boards to my raspberry... now it seems to work! unfortunately i can't test it because i'm not able to upload anything to my Sensebender Micro boards. now i'm waiting for my new ftdi programmer 😡

    @narf nice work. Thanks for reporting back.

  • alright! now with new programmer a was able to upload the "standard" sketch to my sensebender micro and the gateway even gets "something":

    is this right? and if so, how can i translate all this stuff? 👁

    ohhhhhhh. this makes sense:

    [20:17:18] openhabian@openHABianPi:~$ mosquitto_sub -t mysensors-out/#

    cool cool. now i just have to figure out how to define my items on the openhab part!
