Re: New hackable ESP gadgets in local budget store "action" !!!

I found some more info and a tear-down of these devices on a the German forum mikrocontroller.net . It seams that the OTA update with Tuya-convert has been disabled by Tuya with a new firmware and these devices would have the new update. Also some of these devices don't have the esp8266 or esp8285 ...

Re: Instant pulse sending via MQTT

The Total value will only be sent when the counter's values change. Hi Thomas, thanks for your assistance so far. I just think a few things are missing from the rule. The / in front of sensors for example. If I don't add this, the rule is not pusblishing anything to the broker. Publish /sensors/wat...

Re: Change Total value of a pulse counter with command

Then you can set the offset again in a dummy variable and just let the rules output the sum of both. Would you mind explaining this further in an example? Does the value of such dummy variable survive a reboot? Because I'm issuing a reboot every night at 0:00 with a rule to start collecting the Tot...

Re: Instant pulse sending via MQTT

The basic idea is to use rules to send the counted value only when it has changed. Hi Thomas, I tried to read and analyse your rule but I'm having a hard time understanding it. I'm not really sure if this is what I need. How to approach this when I only want to send the Total value if it changes (g...

Re: Instant pulse sending via MQTT

I also encountered another problem with pulse counters.

Change Total value of a pulse counter with command

Hi, Sometimes I need to do maintenance in my electrical/network setup and I have to reboot the ESPEasy device during the day. I'm running pulse counters and after a reboot the total of the day so far is lost. Luckily I can gather the collected amount of pulses from my mqtt broker logs. I'm looking f...
