I did delete it but understand now why I shouldn't have. I will readd it (different device id) and let you know. It may take a little while as I am waiting for some radios with external antennas and an finding in the meantime that my radio reception is too limited to proceed.

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
Ok, so close! Adding back the rest I get and endless string of � in the serial monitor and nothing adds to Vera.
I don't actually need the temp (tried commenting it out but could not get it to compile) if that makes it easier?

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
Using that sketch I was able to add it to Vera, it just does not report pressure or forecast (obviously as there is no data being presented to it)

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
The Sensor and Ethernet gateway both have 4.7uf electrolytic capacitors across the power input of the radio's (I cant get much distance out of them, maybe <10 metres, but they do work for the relay sensor).
The serial output looks like this: ��Ah���Y5����������i��`q!���J�����

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
By adding those changes it went back to not outputting to the serial interface. I was able to get it to output again by removing the DEFINE DEVICE ID and the DEVICE ID section (not sure why that made a difference) but then it goes back to only adding a node to Vera.
Really appreciate your determination to solve this and I am learning lots along the way!

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
Tried delays right up to 5000 and also added a few others but unfortunately it still only presents the repeater node to Vera

RE: Barometric Pressure Sensor Using MS5637
Thank you so much, it is so close. Code compiles, uploads and there is output from the serial monitor but when adding the device to Vera only a repeater node gets added and not the actual pressure sensor.
The additional pressure sensor files have been uploaded to Vera.

RE: Relay Actuator On/Off Status Reversed
Works like a charm. For anyone else having the same problem I had to upload the sketch as normal, add the device to vera then modify the sketch using griffinsaic suggestion for it to work. Thanks again

RE: Relay Actuator On/Off Status Reversed
Thanks, I did try that as it seemed like the logical choice but no success. now that I know it works I will be more persistent!
