@neverdie go for the pi zero chip is really nice a little better than the pi zero wifi and bt integraded 4gb and a few cool stuff , but theres people that pay a year ago and still waiting for the chip to arrive , no reply and no support on forum , to me chip is dying , you cant never go wrong with a pi , but i will try in a few months the omega2 to remplace my chips

RE: What did you build today (Pictures) ?
well today finally i decide to change to c.h.i.p. as a controller with domoticz an amazing device but too bad for the product that got really bad customer support, ( if you planning to buy a c.h.i.p. read the forum first to get all the problems)
this is my controller using a chip, arduino nano
planing to chage the nano to a nodemcu
RE: Template sketch for flexible use with many different sensor types
@Dave-Myers this is asoweme will try in this days but sound amazing thanks for sharing.
RE: Am I crazy?
Your idea is possible you need a good case for that meaby a pelican case with clear top for the solar cell
Something like this
Ypou need a good silicone for any hole you drill on the box and I this this will be able to do what you need
C.H.I.P. my controller choise
almost a year ago i was browsing on kickstarter when i saw the new micro pc C.H.I.P. from Next Thing Co. (www.getchip.com) , i order one just for fun 9usd + 6usd shipping , this machine took too long to arrive almost a year ,
but when arrive i get amazed of all the fetures that this $9 machine can do
1GHz Allwinner R8 processor
512MB of RAM
8GBytes of flash
video output (composite video)
linux debian distribution
CHIP is powered at 5V and draws about 500mA during boot,On the header terminals, we find a variety of power sources include 5V, 3.3V and 1.8V. The maximum current draws on these are 2A, 700mA and 50mA respectively
already included with a connector for a battery ( 1s) with " sudo battery.sh "we can have battery stats
Battery voltage = 3951.2mV
Battery discharge current = 0mA
Battery charge current = 510.0mA
Internal temperature = 56.8c
so i decide to make a controller for my sensors as i dont had a pi (to expensive for me )
so i decide to install mycontroller (mycontroller.org) it works pretty well but i decide to use Domoticz the installation for domoticz is pretty simple
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install build-essential nano cmake git libboost-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-system-dev libsqlite3-dev curl libcurl4-openssl-dev libssl-dev libusb-dev zlib1g-dev python3-dev mkdir ~/domoticz cd ~/domoticz wget https://releases.domoticz.com/releases/release/domoticz_linux_armv7l.tgz tar xvfz domoticz_linux_armv7l.tgz rm domoticz_linux_armv7l.tgz ./domoticz
and thats it
domoticz is really nice controller i gonna test it for a couple of months.
also we can install node-red and johnny-five gpio for chip
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install build-essential sudo apt-get install python cd /tmp mkdir node cd node wget https://nodejs.org/dist/v4.4.7/node-v4.4.7-linux-armv7l.tar.xz tar -xvf node* cd node* sudo cp -R * /usr/local cd /usr/local/bin cd ~ mkdir node-red cd node-red npm install node-red cd node_modules cd node-red npm install node-red-contrib-gpio johnny-five chip-io node red.js
Go to http://chip-ip:1880 and play
i test node-red and works great
if you know how to use a pi you will know how to use chip
on the chip forum danjperron manage to add a nrf24l01 to the chip se meaby we can use a controller and gateway in the same device or make wifi sensors
RE: Any admin from the domoticz forum?
@Boots33 I did on Firefox ( window) and in chrome ( android) same result on both , I just need to wait don't know how long till the "You have exceeded the maximum number of registration attempts for this session. Please try again later." Allow me to try again.
Understanding combined sketch
Hey guys I need your help to understand the combining of sketch
I'm current using the air humidity sketch and I love to add more sketch like the battery level sketch
Any one got already une that can share so I can understand the needed part to do other combinations
I using arduino for a automatic aquarium controller and I will love to implement it to my sensor but I need to understand more about the code and libraries
If anyone can share a example of two combined sketch I can go forward to my project , small steps at the time lol
Any admin from the domoticz forum?
Any admin from the domoticz forum or moderator?
I been trying for days to register to the forum of domoticz but I'm unable to do so
Always the registration confirmation give me the error.
"You have incorrectly sorted the items to the correct list of the confirmation question.
You have exceeded the maximum number of registration attempts for this session. Please try again later."
And I can't find any email to contact the domoticz's team or a kind user to inform a moderator or admin if there's is a problem with the registration form
Thanks guys for you help
