Thanks for that FotoFieber - a useful find.. if I can find some matching server code, I'll be able to convert the useful bits to do what I need.
I'll keep this thread updated, hopefully it will be useful to anyone else wanting the same thing.
Thanks mfalkvidd - there are a couple of snippets in that code that will be useful, but I need a bit more than he has implemented..
Hi FotoFieber - for the time being, I don't need MQTT, the only comms will be inside the mysensors network.. I'm familiar with node.js, Python etc. & RPi - maybe in the future I will use a full on controller, but for now I can do it all on 1 Uno..
I may have to use a seperate Uno for the controller and just parse the serial comms from the gateway, but it seems a (really) simple combined gateway/controller is a missing piece of the mysensors project - reading around, it seems like many people would make use of such a thing, and it would certainly help newbies (such as myself) to mysensors in getting started..
What I'm trying to do is this:
1 x node, sending temp, humidity etc. (tx only)
2 x node serving as heating controllers (tx temp, rx heat on/off)
1 x gateway/controller wih RTC, display and input buttons, to show tempertures, turn heating on/off according to temp, schedule etc.
Really simple, with no need for a full on controller..
Thanks for all inputs, I could use some arduino code samples for parsing the received messages (at the gateway), and pseudocode for responding to time requests etc.
I have a couple of nodes, and just want to display the node data on an lcd screen attached to my arduino uno gateway.
I don't really need a full on controller - but to be able to pass back simple switch on/off requests, time/date etc. to the nodes would be useful.
Is there any how to guides, good examples I can look at to see what I need to do?
What is the bare minimum I need to implement to function as a controller?
