Ethernet gateway with Homeassistant



  • I read a lot about Ethernet gateway problem with home assistant but i can't catch the reason for my problem as i get a different logs from both gateway and home-assistant i want to establish a connection between gateway and home-assistant using default Ethernet sketch and below configuration in home-assistant:
    mysensors:
    gateways:
    - device: '192.168.1.10'
    tcp_port: 5003
    persistence_file: '/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/mysensors.json'
    persistence: true
    optimistic: false
    below are the logs from home-assistant:
    2018-11-29 21:12:39 ERROR (MainThread) [mysensors.gateway_tcp] Failed to connect to socket at ('192.168.1.10', 5003)
    2018-11-29 21:12:52 ERROR (MainThread) [mysensors.gateway_tcp] Failed to connect to socket at ('192.168.1.10', 5003)

    2018-11-29 21:13:32 ERROR (MainThread) [mysensors.gateway_tcp] Failed to connect to socket at ('192.168.1.10', 5003)
    also some times i get connection to socket time out.

    below are the logs from serial monitor which there are some of them unknown in Log Parser:

    Welcome to the forum @ahmed-amin

    10 !TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL
    

    means that the gateway is unable to initialize the transport/radio. You're using the nrf24l01+ radio? Triple-check the wiring and post photos if you can't find any problem. A new pair of eyes is often necessary.



  • Thanks @mfalkvidd i'll check but i also wonder if i can establish and initialize a connection between controller and Ethernet gateway first then attach the sensors and actuators as from home-assistant logs it seems that the connection couldn't establish is it because what you mention.
    very thanks again for your support.


  • Mod

    @ahmed-amin the gateway will only start responding to incoming ethernet connections after it has successfully initialized the radio.

    So either fix the problem, or disable the radio by commenting the line that selects the radio and upload the modified sketch.



  • @mfalkvidd below is modified sketch as you mentioned :
    /**

    • The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
    • between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
    • The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
    • repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
    • network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

    • DESCRIPTION
    • The EthernetGateway sends data received from sensors to the ethernet link.
    • The gateway also accepts input on ethernet interface, which is then sent out to the radio network.
    • The GW code is designed for Arduino 328p / 16MHz. ATmega168 does not have enough memory to run this program.
    • LED purposes:
      • To use the feature, uncomment MY_DEFAULT_xxx_LED_PIN in the sketch below
      • RX (green) - blink fast on radio message received. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation received
      • TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
      • ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or receive crc error
    • See http://www.mysensors.org/build/ethernet_gateway for wiring instructions.

    1603 !GWT:TSA:ETH FAIL
    1608 !GWT:TSA:ETH FAIL (this keep repeating)

    actually now i can ping to the gateway but still get this from home-assistant logs:

    i also checked the tcp port and found:
    tcp 0 1 192.168.1.6:55916 192.168.1.10:5003 SYN_SENT 291/python3
    which seems that it waits a respond from gateway in order to establish a connection



  • solved i just comment below line of my code:
    //#define MY_CONTROLLER_IP_ADDRESS 192,168,1,6
    //#define MY_MAC_ADDRESS 0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED
    and delete mysensors.pickle1 file .
    thanks @mfalkvidd for your trial to support me.
