A couple of questions if I may.......

HI,

First post and I wanted to say what a promissing project this looks, great work so far!

Now I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to find a solution for.....

1. I already have a number of arduino pro mini's with nrf24l01+ sending data back to lcd displays in the house. Is it possible to have the receiver get the data (sent in struct with RF24 library by manicbug) and then re-send it in a format that the gateway pi would be able to understand and graph? How do I do this? I know I can change between radio channels on the fly in the main loop, so listen for the data, process, change to pi gateway channel and rebroadcast, then back to listening on the existing network channel. I hope that makes sense!

2. How do I get a node to perfom an action when another node sees an input? Is this in the mew automation module?

3. The NRF24L01+ can listen on 6 'pipes' at a time. I would like to have a priority channel for the security sensors and have all the temperature and lights etc. on another one, better for security and faster reaction time? Is this possible?

Well, that's more than enough for now, thanks for an inspiring project!

Hi,
you have many libraries to work with NRF24L01+ and different libraries use different logic to communicate. EasyIoT server implements MySensors library. The only way to communicate with Arduino is to use MySensor Arduino library. It works ok, and I have no intention to modify it. You can write your own NRF24L01+ protocol, but it will not work with EasyIoT server. But anyway, why write your own protocol - MySensors work ok.

Thanks for the fast reply! - Superb!

I understand what you are saying, so I will have to re-write the code for mysensors. I'll have a look at their site and see what I can find.

Now another question.......

How can I get remote LCD displays to show the data using EI0T and MySensors? I have built Arduino and LCD displays into the fridge freezer and greenhouse.
They both send data back to be displayed on remote LCD's and I would love to be able to keep this function.

Can this be done?

Another thought might be if it's possible to have a mysensors node using an additional pro mini and nrf24 and get the data serially from the existing receiver to the new mysensors node. Maybe I should be asking on the mysensors site?

Thanks

Skywatch.

You can send data in both directions. I'm using thermostat which sends room temperature to server and displays data from sensor in another room.

Yes, I have been studying mysensors and it's all a lot clearer now!

Thanks!
