RE: Free MySensors 2.0 workshop, Friday 9 September in Amersfoort (The Netherlands)
RE: MySensors 2.0 support
So, quick question:
What's the best way to update a full environment. I have an Ethernet GW with multiple sensors across the house.
If the Serial Protocol hasn't been modified, can I start updating nodes and once all of them are in 2.0 update the GW without loosing functionality? or should I update everything in one shoot?
RE: Can't see my nodes on HA web interface
I had the same issue but adding this in the sensor config will make it work:
I think is related to the fact that your node is not sending confirmation after assigning the new value (activating /deactivating the relay).
Global variables without compile again
I'm trying to find a solution for the following scenario.
Right now I have deloyed ~10 sensor boxes with Motion, Temperature, Humidity & Light level. All of them working without issue.
I'd like to find a way to have some variables outside the Arduino Code that I can change in realtime and that Arduinos will use (let's say by restarting) without needed to recompile and flash them.
My first thinking is to have something in the GW that I can customize and that each and every node will consume.
I think the usage example will be for Sleep timers. When everything is in 'running mode' well, sleeptimer for Temp & Huidity gathering can be high (let's say 1 measurement every 5 minutes). But if I'm testing something or want to investigate if the system works or something being able to alter this value to 10 seconds would be great
Not sure if I'm explaining enough what I'm trying to address but please feel free to help me scope it.
Is there any way I can do this?
Thanks in advance.
Set Dimmer level in a Script
I'm trying to find a way to set the value for a Dimmer from a Script.
I know it sounds easy but I've found myseft somehow challenged with this.
The idea is to dim a light to compensate the lack of light in a room so the less light in the room (measured from a light sensor) the high in the dimmer.
thanks in advance.
RE: 2 controllers and 1 gateway - expected behavior??
Thanks for the idea.
Can you share some details on how to do that? I think it would be worth to try.
