433Mhz protocol for OaseFM-Master 3

Hi Christoph,
I’am really not an expert in 433Mhz protocols but i guess that Oase use their own individual protocol to control their devices. For that reason the firmware of the nanoCul must know the protocol to support
the Oase devices. That means, you need to enhance the nanoCUL Firmware. If you are able to program a Arduino you can build your own nanoCul and implement just the protocols of your needs. Or, If possible connect a 433 MHz sender direct to the I/O of your Computer to send out the pulse sequence.
Best regards, Paul

Plugin development


Pimatic-save will not safe my pimatic-database.sqlite anymore.
I get the following error:
error [pimatic-save]: Error put, probably wrong path (not existing on ftp server): FtpConnectionError: can't perform 'put' command when connection status is: disconnecting
error [pimatic-save]: File 'pimatic-database.sqlite' not found in FTP readFile:
It did work before but now my database is bigger then 450.000 Kb It dous not work anymore.
Is there a timelimit or size limit to saving the database file.

ESP8266 development

ESPEasy Mega Pimatic plugin

@wutu or @jopiek you where the last one updating the C022.ino in 2016 could you please update to the new version of ESPEasy-mega.
I think the structure of the program has changed so much that the old version of the pimatic plugin will not compile anymore.
Thanks in advance

mysensors-node shutter device


in the last two month i have spend some time in the rollershutter node. Maybe some of you can use the sketch (it`s an upgrade from depressles sketch).

Some Points to the Sketch:

-send periodically the position and the temperature of the node
-two button (when the shutter ist moving any button stops)
-two times for moving (my Shutters are faster, when they moving down)
-sending up&down time from pimatic
-sending the wantet position from pimatic

If you have any idea to improve it, please tell me!
