Relay Node



  • @jkandasa I start to play with MyController today looks good what I am seeing so far. However i have a problem with the my relay node. I am running Mysensor beta version 2 on all my nodes. Mycontroller pick the relay up but is I look at the node info it say there is no sensors why will this be the case?

    Thanks

    Francois


  • ADMIN

    i believe we might have issue to display sensors count in node details page. let me have a look. thank you



  • @jkandasa do this version support relays and dimmer sensors? As I also don't get my dimmer sensor to work.


  • ADMIN

    @fwessels yes this version should support dimmer and relay.



  • @jkandasa Are you using the standard sensors sketch or did you changes anything in the sketch as my relays and dimmers sensors are not working


  • ADMIN

    @fwessels with standard sketch only. mycontroller will send set type message



  • @jkandasa If I look at the Variables mapper I don't see anything for lights (relay) what Sensor type do you use for the relay?

    Regards

    Francois


  • ADMIN

    sensor type S_BINARY and variable type V_STATUS



  • @jkandasa I try everything and just cannot get the relay node working what can the issue be?


  • ADMIN

    @fwessels can you share your node code?



  • Hi @jkandasa here is my code

     * The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
     * between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
     * The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
     * repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
     * network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

     * DESCRIPTION
     * Example sketch for a "light switch" where you can control light or something 
     * else from both HA controller and a local physical button 
     * (connected between digital pin 3 and GND).
     * This node also works as a repeader for other nodes

    @fwessels I tested with MY_RADIO_NRF24 as I do not have MY_RADIO_RFM69. Everything works perfectly for me. Kindly check your radio and hardware circuits.

    if you want to update sensors name by default write like this present(CHILD_ID, S_BINARY, "Relay Sensor");



  • anyone else noticed that it does not work here?

    void receive(const MyMessage &message) {
    // We only expect one type of message from controller. But we better check anyway.
    if (message.isAck()) {
    Serial.println("This is an ack from gateway");
    }

    server does not respond to a command (message.isAck())

    it turns out that there is no certainty that my relays included.
    MYCONTROLLER.ORG button in the interface does not show the correct status of the node.


  • ADMIN

    @greengo

    message.isAck() is all about mysensors framework. If it is ack message returns true otherwise false



  • @jkandasa
    in fact of the matter is that the server does not return the values, although the sensor sends.
    before, I used EasyIoT server http://iot-playground.com/download
    and there it works.

Looks like your connection to MYCONTROLLER.ORG was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
