@eric007 It is possible to know if the watchdog have restarted? Otherwise you wont know which solution worked. But that it is working may be good enough

RE: Auto reset node.
I would suggest to find the problem instead of treating the symptom.
I had similar problem with a outside node. Lost contact after 3-4 days. Had to switch from electrolytical capacitor to tantalum on the power of the nrf24 to solve the problem. Of course there can be other causes, but it feels much better when the real problem is solved.
Water volume widget
I tried to ask at the Domoticz forum but I find it hard to get any help there. So I just try and ask the same question here.
I wonder if anyone knows what kind of values the water volume widget expects in Domoticz?
I have a sensor that presents water flow and volume every time a valve is opened. It would like to log the amount of water for that session when the valve is open and then closed and also the total volume for each day.
As it is now I send the increasing total the whole time the valve is open and end with zero when I close it. Don’t know if it is the zero that mess things up? But any suggestion to what kind of values I should send to Domoticz is appreciated.
RE: Looking for waterproof connectors
@johnrob I found it hard to make it waterproof where the cables go into the connector. If I have 3 or 4 pin connector it gets very wide so I need a wide pice of shrink plastic(or what is it called in english). But if I use that wide it won’t seal the cable going in since those are often pretty small.
Also I found it hard to get the pins inside the connector to stay in place after mounting. Many times the pins don’t align exactly with the female and instead get pushed inside into the connector. So the don’t get any contact with the female. Then I need to use a plier to pull the pin out and try again.
Looking for waterproof connectors
I wonder if anyone have a good suggestion on waterproof connections? Preferably with different number of pins, like 2,3,4 or 5 pins. I want to use them for outdoor sensors, and sometimes as power supply connection for outdoor sensors.
They are available with different amount of pins, but they turned out to be pretty useless. So I'm looking for some better solution and hope that I can get some suggestions.
RE: Communication problem or?
I have ordered some bigger tantalum capacitors. But have in the meantime tried with 100 and 220 uF ordinary electrolytic capacitor. But it didn’t make a difference. As soon as it get cold outside it stops working.
And since it is outside attached to sensors that is hard to take inside it makes it hard to connect a computer and enable and watch debug output.
But I wonder, is there something else that could be sensitive to the cold? In general -5– -10 cold shouldn’t be a problem for electronics?
