I have now extended my mysensors setup with an actuator. Mysensors is a nice framework for this and it is working but I’ve noticed a problem.
If I trigger the actuator in pimatic it doesn’t seem to wait for the ack from the actuator. Thus after switching I have no idea if the switch really switched or not although the architecture of mysensors should allow this.
What I’m also missing is some kind of retry mechanism but as I currently understand this is not part of the mysensors architecture. Would be great to resend the message for example 5 times if it times out.
I guess this is up to the client, I can implement this on the sensor but for the pimatic integration I don’t know if it should be in the plugin or in the serial gateway.
