This is probably an old topic?? However, I would appreciate some help with the Openhab Mysensor Binding.
I have been unsuccessfully trying to get MySensors binding to work with Openhab2. I do have the openhab programming running on a Raspberry Pi. I'm new to openHab2 and the Raspberry Pi and I'm on new learning curve when it comes to both openHab2 and the Raspberry Pi
My original home automation project was with Vera and I had no issues implementing Mysensors Gateways, Sensor and Actuators with the Vera controller. I'm changer over because I'm tried of Vera always dropping out and being erratic with the Scenes I had programmed into the controller .
I have successfully built an MQTT Gateway to work with Openhab2, I had a Ethernet gateway running with my Vera controller, and I have successfully established communications with all the sensors and Actuators I had running through the Ethernet gateway to Vera. The problem is I have is to manual code all my "Mysensor" sensors into openhab2. I assuming if I can get some help with implementing Mysensor binding into openhab2 it will have the discover and include features as the Vera Controller does.
I've have spent several weeks reading through manuals, forums and posts trying to figure out what I need to do or what I'm doing wrong. So any help, from you all, would be great!
Update: I figured out how to make a few changes to the Vera device display. Now for some reason all three are reading from one analog pin. I have each one of them set on A0, A1, A2. Never mind as I was writing this post I think I figured out what I done wrong. For some reason I had the A0 pin defined twice in my sketch. Still need to test it an see that's the problem. And the only thing I have left to try an figure out is in the Vera Scenes the language is still in French.
Anybody have any ideas how I can fix this??
I could use a little bit of your help with a water pressure project I built. I built this project to monitor my water filters I have installed in the houses water system to monitor the water pressure and alert me when the filter are in need of being changed and to shut my electric water heater off if there is no water pressure, which happens quite often living on a rural community with a well water system . Also a pressure sensor for my radiant heat system to also monitor its operating pressure. I have all 3 of these sensors (pressure transducer) working on one Arduino Uno board. All this works great. My sketch is probably longer then is needs to be. I'm still pretty green when it comes to writing & editing sketches
The problem have is, and I'm using a vera-lite for a controller, when I added it to my controller I got a foreign language on the device. I have done some editing to the XML and Json files to see if I could fix the problem with no luck. I'm even greener when comes to writing or editing these type of file. I used the barometer files, from MySensors for my project, sense it was the closest to what I was trying to achieve. I edited the text in these files. I Change the Hpa to PSI and Pressure.0_1462830038717_Water Pressure.PNG
Could someone help me with foreign language display??
And if anybody else is interested in developing an transducer pressure sensor for Mysensors I'd be happy to share what I have so far. Maybe someone could help me iron out some of my rough edges.
Thanks, look forward to hearing from ya
Got it all to work after using a new Atmel328 chip on a extra Arduino Uno board I had. I'm guessing the clone board, from china, I was trying to use has some kind of issue with eeprom or some other issue. Couldn't get it to responded to on or off signal or couldn't get the radio strength issue worked out either.
Again Thank you so much for your help!
Thank you! That worked perfectly. I have a 10uF capacitor on there now and it only 2 feet for the gateway. but its only being powered through my PC usb port. The larger 8relay board is probably pulling most of the power.
I could really use your help with an Relay Actuator built. Just to let you all know I'm a newbie at this. To give an idea where I'm at with my home automation sensor projects. I'm building them and adding them to my Vera-Lite controller. I have already built my gateway "Ethernet", one motion detector, one humidity/Temp sensor, one Temp sensor with five temp sensors, and one single relay actuator and they all work great. The Problem I ran into is on my second relay actuator build. It is a 8 relay set. First off I couldn't figure out how to set the A0 & A1 pins. So for testing purposes I only utilized 6 of them, until I could figure out to modify the sketch to operate the last two. The big issue I ran into is when I went to test it. It registered itself as a 0 node, same as my gateway. All 6, of the relays I wired up, showed up and were registered as 0;1-6. However they will not responded.
My Question is: is there away to assign a node to a senor build? All my other sensors are assigned nodes 2-5 as I included them in the gateway.
This is what I receive from the, debug, serial monitor. I'm also using MYSController program so I can see which sensor is assigned to which node.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'll admit a newbie at this. but I"m about beyond frustrated. I've been trying to get my "Vera Edge" Serial gateway up and running. I had it working, using a nano ATmega328 w/FTDI chipset. So that was great! All your posts were very helpful! So I decided to move forward and start building my sensors. The first sensor I built was a motion sensor also using a nano ATmega328. So I got it up and running, communicating with the gateway, and than the Vera controller dropped it and I kept get the same error message, Device not ready, "LUA Startup Failure.
If you all have any another ideas on what could be causing this I could sure use your help!
