RF protocol development


@fabian said in Contact04:

@fennsen @lschip do you have installed th plugin by gui or have you already tried to install manually from git? Maybe the changes aren’t in the installation called from gui. I think this is not the git but the npm-version.

I had to reinstall Pimatic. But then I lost the battery status function again. Does this functionality come in the regular install (or install from the gui)?

ESP8266 development

Announcement: ESPimaticRF coming soon

@estadhouders if you use an id, ttyusb becomes redundant. In other words, even if it is on ttyusb12837, it should still find it, by serial.

But i guess that doesnt work, maybe you could look into symlinking it with udev.

See this page; https://www.sparkfun.com/news/2332

As for me, this happened when using a broken usb cable. It would cut it off and reconnect it.

[Solved] Relay with Button - Button does not react! [At the end it was a Timing issue]


/** * 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.

Thanks for the Help!

p.s. Any advice regarding cleanup of the Code welcome :-)
