Due to ongoing debates about the use and misuse of the “German Support” category to the detriment of users who don’t speak German, the creation of new topics on the category has been closed. Thus, this category is now read-only.
I have tried a little with ioBroker. Blockly takes some getting used to, Node-Red takes some getting used to, and the rules in ioBroker are anything but easy to understand. At least for someone like me. So for someone who has nothing to do with programming or scripting, someone who has to read everything and often has to ask others to understand logics of this kind.
Anyway, yesterday I had the idea, why couldn’t there be the same or similar RuleEngine in ioBroker as in pimatic? That would certainly make a change easier for many here.
So I put a issue on GitHub for a new adapter for ioBroker.
At least the first reactions were not negative, rather the opposite.
Perhaps one or the other can also report there with the advantages of pimatic RuleEngine.
I just recently stumbled over this discussion - I also have problems with signals getting lost - and I tried it out.
At first it was not working at all. Receiving, sending, all functionality was gone. AND: the moment I started receiving also the normal remote would not work for the RF sockets. I though: “What the f**** is going on?” The idea that I just built an RF jamming devices came to my mind… in fact the problem was:
I used D13 on the arduino for my RF sender. And the updated homeduino by is using D13 for an activity LED (hardcoded).
After I fixed this, the device works just fine for my RF switches.
I think I still have a problem with my temperature sensors. Both from Pearl. One is using the weather1 protocol, the other weather18.
No temperature is detected and even when I trigger the sensor to send RF messages there is no input in pimatic. I am using “discover devices” to detect.
Are there any known topics for these kind of devices? Any hints how to debug?
I did some printf debugging. The code never enters the “if(RFControl::hasData())” block in rfcontrol_command.h
