Just a concern, the MDF plate could/might contains sand particles (manufactures use cheap wood materials), so don't let your expensive endmills cut down to the MDF as this will ware out the sharp endmills

The scale have to be calibrated, The scale in a shop MUST be calibrated by an authorized company once a year, maybe every second year.
So if you will check up against your own scale, then you actually don't know if your scale is measuring correct.
In Denmark DANAK is the authorized certification authority. They can grant other companies the right to execute calibration
Trigger when mouse trap caught a mouse
I have a good mice trap, that actually cought 2 mice. It though only happened this first time I used it.
However I occasional get a mouse in the trap, it's placed on the floor in my garage, for now I check daily - but I need your help to provide me some ideas how I can mysensorize the trigger signal? and yes stability is a key issue, as if it's unstable I have to continue to check daily.
Currently I neither have wifi nor cable network in my garage, so it's not possible for me place a webcam
I have 230V AC electricity in my garage, so I don't need to use a battery device for monitoring
As mice carries all kinds of diseases, I don't want the sensor to touch the mousetrap
I have thought of a sound pressure sensor, but I think its not working as I have a manual garagedoor, and when this opens or closes it provides a fairly loud clash noise, and this will trigger the sensor
what to do?!?
The trap is a Mjølner:
RE: Z-wave question
Not sure which of the Fibaro wall plugs you bought, so I added both links, it's about the command class that your device supports.
you can in Domotics/setup/devices all have similar id, so you can type in the little search window "zwav 13" adn it filter filter all zwave devices with id number 13
example below is id 13, and they then have different classes, alarm level, alarm types etc
RE: Control of Toshiba R410 Heatpump
I can still recommend to use wemos d1 pro mini with espeasy and ToniA's plugin.
if you remote isn't supported, then create a circuit to measure the raw ir
I believe that the easiest and right approach, as you then can control all your heatpumps functions easy
RE: [SOLVED] I use serial GW 2.1.1 and my sensor node won't connect
maybe trying to use an "older" version for BOTH serial gateway and node. remember for the node to use the special sketch that erases/clear eeprom, as it contains the node id given from the gateway.
m out of good ideas
