Re: OLED Scrolling Display

Neil, a weird problem has arisen... and I'm not sure who to direct this at... On recent builds, with OLED Framed included, I get "Low memory available, stability problems may occur" when compiling. Whenever I go into the Devices page and do anything to do with OLED Framed, the device crash...

Re: OLED Scrolling Display

Now fixed in the playground. Trying it now! The problem with the recurring syntax errors is partly due to you talking to yourself Jon! Damn. The madness is getting to me. MQTT pubsub gets very confusing if you do this - even 'living fossils' should try to avoid the practise! Oi! Leave us elderly fo...

Re: HB100 Microwave Motion Sensor

Best advice would be to build it into an Arduino project using one of the examples that's floating around the internets, and then build that into an ESPEasy Pro Mini Extender that sends its pre-processed results to the ESPEasy.

Re: Sliding average dummy device

This sort of thing might certainly find uses. Even if you have a central machine doing processing of raw data, it's often useful to use local horsepower to do simple smoothing, deadband processing, deduping, exception filtering, rate of change calculations, hysteresis or other operations on the raw ...

Re: LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

Try to send %20 instead of the space, or maybe even +20 So, instead of "this is a sentence" try "this%20is%20a%20sentence" Alas, sending commands this way displays the %20 literally. Use the Unicode non-breaking space or hard-space character U+00A0 instead. To get this character...

Re: OLED Scrolling Display

That sounds incredibly useful, Neil... and very comprehensive functionality which should give everyone everything they need. I shall give it a go hopefully today. A LITTLE LAT...

R118 has compiled here fine. Thanks Neil!

Is there any chance of being able to send the OLED string values to display?

This would be really useful.

Also, I'm up and running with R118, OLED Framed, and MQTT-import too. Thanks Neil!

Alas namirda hasn't been seen here since April 2016. Does anyone have a forwarding address?

At what point should someone else step in and take over the code?

Re: ESP easy ->MQTT -> Node Red (for beginners)

Hi Petko, I've been developing systems in much the same way as Jéan, and have Node-Red running on a Raspberry Pi 3, Mosquitto on another, and MongoDB on yet another. My sensor data is largely generated by ESPEasy sensors, and I'm starting to experiment with real-world ways of implementing actuators ...

Re: [Feature Request] MQTT Heartbeat Counter & Reset

I would very strongly support this. The use of LWT is essential. I want to know when one of my units is down! With LWT messages I can get node-red (or any other mqtt monitor) to notify me when a unit goes offline unexpectedly. It should be implemented in conjunction with a status topic and retained ...

Do you mean you're displaying the values in the original ESPEasy OLED tiny-font multi-line plugin, or this wonderful big-font multi-page scrolling one? Ok to answer myself, I've now explored further and found I can display variables from onboard sensors or even other ESP8266 units in the framed OLE...

FYI. If you use the MQTT import function in the ESP Playground you can subscribe to MQTT topics and use the values in the OLED display. I have it working showing a Temperature Setpoint from OpenHAB.

Cases, casings, mounts, housings and 3D printing designs

To complete my ESPEasy sensors & control units I'm designing a range of cases for 3D printing. Has anyone else produced designs for such items, and would you be interested in sharing them here? How many 3D printing enthusiasts are there amongst the ESPEasy fans?

Very interesting board... inexpensive, and saves me having to make the same thing out of several separately-sourced components. I'd be interested to know how others fare with it.
