Re: mqq instead of http to control pwm

@megamarco83: You should use an MQTT-helper device in which you specify the idx of the device in Domoticz.
If you define a dimmer in Domoticz the MQTT-helper even changes pwm according to Domoticz percentage.

Re: Sending a serial command from ESPeasy to Arduino

If you want a rule to execute when the switch changes state you must use that as the on condition instead of serial#raw
So:

Code: Select all

Re: Sending a serial command from ESPeasy to Arduino

The wiki page you refer to is about sending commands to ESPEasy.
I think in your case you should use a serial server device. Do not have any experience with that myself but you may find some info on the forum.

Re: nodemcu on battery

I think the best way to reduce power consumption is to use a ESP directly instead of NodeMCU. The NodeMCU has some components (voltage regulator, UART) that consume power even when the ESP is in deep sleep. If you don't want to use the regulator you should use 3.3V input and not Vin.

Re: Rules MQTT

I notice 2 things in your rules, not sure if they cause the problem.
1. You do not set timer1 on boot so the second rule will never fire.
2. Maybe there must be a comma after ' publish' instead of the space.

Re: Read switch state from json/domoticz

Well, then a MQTT retained message may be the way to go.
A nice explanation is here http://www.hivemq.com/blog/mqtt-essenti ... d-messages
You will need a script on Domoticz side to publish the (retained) message and
a MQTT import device on ESPEasy to retrieve it after wakeup.
