you are a life safer! i didn't realize i didn't have that one yet!

RE: [Solved] Sensebender GW: TSP FAIL
[Solved] Sensebender GW: TSP FAIL
recently i got myself a sensebender GW to replace my current ESP one.
ive solderd the connectors on the board and connected everything. but i cant get it to work...
i've tried everything, im getting the following in the debug log:
0;255;3;0;9;MCO:BGN:INIT GW,CP=RNNGS--,VER=2.1.1 0;255;3;0;9;TSF:LRT:OK 0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT 0;255;3;0;9;TSF:WUR:MS=0 0;255;3;0;9;!TSM:INIT:TSP FAIL 0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:CNT=1 0;255;3;0;9;TSM:FAIL:PDT
This seems errors with the communication to the RF module. i already tried several module to exclude that. (also from 3 different batches, including one with an external antenna)
just to be sure i resolderd all the connections going to the RF module, no luck.
As described in the FAQ i also measured the power. i do see that it is a bit low. i'm getting 2.9V on the 3.3 measuring points on the board.
Might this be the issue?
EDIT: i just measured again directly on the RF module. and the power is 3.33V so that is perfect.
still not sure how i can find the issue...
could it be that a component on the board is broken? if so could you guys help me with identifying which component it is?
PS. i'm using the serialGW sketch with arduino zero as target board.
Is the sensbender micro already preloaded with the Dualoptiboot bootloader?
is it already on the boards from itead, or do i need to program it through the ISP?
Sensbender micro interrupts
i currently have 4 Sensbender Micro and i am planning to build door/window sensors off them.
i already created 2 single sensors and they are working perfectly. I used a simple REED contact connected on GND and D3 as D3 is an interrupt i could use the BinarySwitchSleepSensor example to build it.(https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/blob/development/examples/BinarySwitchSleepSensor/BinarySwitchSleepSensor.ino)
PS. a reed switch fits perfectly between the GND and D3, and rests on the extra PCB part of the sensbender!
Though, now i want to build 1 sensor with 2 reed contacts. normally the example sketch would be perfect for it. but i noticed that on the arduino the only pins that have intterupt are pin 2 and 3. And on the Sensbender micro there is no D2.
Is there a other pin on the board that supports intterupts? or should i build it like so that i use D3 as intterupt and also connect the senors to other digital in's to check the actual status of each sensor.
That way i use D3 as a wakeup call. And D4 and D5 for the actual switch status.
RE: [SOLVED] Just started, but already stuck
Codebender has never had the Sensebender/MySensors Micro board among their standard boards.
It would require us (the MySensors project) to pay codebender to get it in. Which isn't an option right now.
and i completely understand that
that is one of the reasons i normally like the "offline" IDE's those services always need to earn money on something. and with arduino you at leased know it is based on donations/boards selling.
i was just a bit scared that i needed to use codebender.cc inorder to get the libraries working, but as Boots33 stated, they seem to be on git!
Perhaps a good idea to link to that git as well on the mysensor micro instruction page!
