Of course there is also the question as to if these are genuine Nordic NRF24L01+ chips or fake Chinese clones again......

Firstly check and re-mate all the contacts. Reflow the solder if it looks suspect under a magnifying glass.
Second, measure voltage at the pi. What power supply are you using and what power cable to the pi?
This would be the first things I would do in this situation.
RE: SensorDoor + Backup Send
You can do this, but be aware that if the nodes are battery powered it will drain the batteries much more quickly.
I have a microwave motion sensor that on the controller seems to 'stick' on a high trigger level. For some reason the return to a low state doesn't always get through it seems.
RE: Pan Tilt stepper motors
@kimot Servos require permanent power to keep position (afaik).
Therefore stepper motors would be preffered as they can 'step' to position the then power off without moving back to a cent
The 'kit' can be commercial or preferably 3D printed.
It's only in the 'thinking about it' stage right now - so don't hold your breath on this but be assured that I will post if/when it works.....
Pan Tilt stepper motors
I was wondering if mysensors would support the operation of remotely controlling pan/tilt stepper motors for CCTV camera.
I was thinking that it would be nice to make a hardware controller with joystick to control this via mysensors and mycontroller setup.
Has anyone done this? Would it be the wrong way to go on this?
I will need to be able to control multiple cameras so a way to switch between which camera to control would be nice. That way I can have one portable controller for all cameras wherever I am.
Any thoughts out there on the practicality of this?
RE: Confirming node connected to gateway.
Thanks for the reply.
I really just need 'something' at the node so that when I power it on I know that it has successfully established communication with the gateway.
On mains powered units it could be a message on a display, on battery units it could be number of flashes of an led.
I do not know 'how' I can do this. Is there some response at the node that I can monitor/interrogate to find out if successful connection has been made with a remote gateway?
