RE: Distance Sensor with long range (8-10 meters) ?
Distance Sensor with long range (8-10 meters) ?
Just started my project of monitoring the water level in our water tank. I have bought that waterproof sensor from the hardware guide but it only reports around 2 meters in testing.
Problem is that i have about 8 meters down to the water level so i either need to lengthen the cable to the sensor by about 6-7 meters down the hole or find another sensor to do the job.
Any idea? this will not be battery powered so no issues there.
RE: Windows GUI/Controller for MySensors
Ok this might be a realy stupid question but im what you call a "nuub"
If i want to monitor my current setup (serial gateway on a pi3) on windows/mint. Do i build another gateway and plug it in the pc?
Sorry if i missed the instructions on this
RE: Building a few repeaters "just in case" bad idea?
Yeah trial and error I guess. I have an outlet outside that I could put a repeater in so i might start with that one.
And caps are on all my nodes so far

Where can you find these changes?
Building a few repeaters "just in case" bad idea?
Heres the deal
I dont live in a giant house but the walls of the house are pretty thick (inside around 30cm and the outside walls are around 45-50cm) the outside are mostly made of wood, have one wall around my heatersystem that is concrete.
I spent days debugging a masterpiece of a mailbox / light sensor that was battery powered and when it finaly was soldered and working as i wanted i happely strolled down to the mailbox (around 50 meters from the house) to install the thing..
Aaaand lost contact, rebooted, walked 10 meters up, rebooted, 10 meters up and so on until i basicly where at the otherside of the wall to my gateway.
So i searched for the solution and found repeaters!
So far i have built 2 of them and placed em togheter with nonsleeping PIRs. And i think they are working, no idea how to tell if they actualy are repeating anything.
The plan is too build a few more in the house and atleast 1 outside where i have power, just to be safe that the range is optimal around the house and a bit outside of the house.
But i read a post in here about repeater looping problems and such so is it a bad idea to install extras even tho it might not be needed?

I rebooted domoticz and it got the right values for the childs
