Weight - HX711 Load Cell and rules

#1 Post by Asco » 11 Jul 2018, 14:11

I use the device "Weight" which works very well... Thank you to the developers!!!

I would like to write a rule which set the tare of the scale once a day. (same as if I check the box tare to set the offset on the device config page)

Is it possible to do?
Is there a place where I could find info about that?

Thank you in advance!

I don't know this plugin, but shouldn't it set to "zero" at start (boot) ?
If so, then just wiring the reset button to some accessible point whould just fix that.
The current boot time of the ESPeasy is within 1 sec, only accessing wifi will take a few seconds more, but then the sensors and display should already be active and usable.

It's not yet "wiki guided" but the command is "tare".

Code: Select all

if (command == F("tare"))
          String log = F("HX711: tare");

          Settings.TaskDevicePluginConfigFloat[event->TaskIndex][3] = -UserVar[event->BaseVarIndex + 1];
          Plugin_067_OversamplingValue = 0;
          Plugin_067_OversamplingCount = 0;

          addLog(LOG_LEVEL_INFO, log);
          success = true;
