I built a serial gateway (auto node), a few PIR-nodes, temperature node and a solar weather station node.
What I don’t really understand is the automatic node management of the gateway/pimatic.
First of all the first node I activated got ID 33 and sequential new nodes got node IDs by increment from 33.
Why didn’t it start with node ID 1?
Is there a way to ‘release’ node IDs in the gateway that aren’t used anymore?
When experimenting with nodes every time a new node is introduced a new node ID is created.
I guess the gateway is managing the IDs and there might come a point where node ID 254 is reached and no IDs are available anymore.
How do you deal with that?
I first put this question on the MysSensors forum but I was refered to the Pimatic forum for answers.
