turning a knob

during my last absence I wanted my gas heating to be turned off but me being able to switch it on again a few days before we expect to come home so the floor heating has the chance to warm the rooms up again. So I used an ESPEasy controlled power switch. When I came back home my heating system was s...

Re: Searching for 'outdoor' devices

thanks a lot for your good advices.

It's outdoor but sheltered or the other way round.
There's a circuit breaker and we have been using the sockets for some years now for timer switches and irrigation systems and inflatable santas :lol:

Re: Battery goes down WAY too fast on ESP

Is that also what you're doing? Before I started to use ESPEasy I had to learn that omnipresent hints don't work all the time: do not use DHCP, assign a fix IP address, switch off this and that, somehow make sure you get to the lowest possible level to set almost the final bit ... for my router / n...

Re: Battery goes down WAY too fast on ESP

Forgot to mention capacity of LiFePO4, sorry: the capacity of the 18650 I talked of for my outdoor sensor is 1.6Ah for an incredible price of less than 2€. The one for my rain sensor is a 26650, capacity 3.3Ah for 5.50€ I checked capacity and trust it. Bargains, I know. Shop sold it because capacity...

Re: Battery goes down WAY too fast on ESP

after some months of using different ESP's my personal favorite is LiFePO4: easy to handle, quite safe, long lasting, no buck or boost needed. If it's feasible to post back low voltage not even an underprotection circuit is needed. One of the outdoor ESP-12's has been running since mid June, current...

You could try, using the setup options of ESPEasy flasher.

If there anything else I could do to make it work?

no, not really.
When storing config isn't possible will setting up device while connected to the power will work? Then I could check with URL-commands and 'taskvalueset'.

Re: running Albohes Outdoor Switch: Cannot save to file

I have some black ESP-01's - but flashed with kind of self-developed firmware, not EspEasy

The Albohes from here runs correctly with 'other' IOT software and keeps settings also after re-powering, so hardware seems to be okay.

Searching for 'outdoor' devices

Are there any devices you know of which are suited more for an outdoor usage than the ones known for indoor? I know, a power plug isn't really made for rain but this one would be located under a roof. Something like this, also because it offers two channels, would be really great - without the unwan...

Nothing which is set dynamically will survive a boot.

Either because I do not want to enable WiFi or simply because I can't. ...

Changing a dummy var's value does not use a event command. It uses the taskvalueset command.
Thank you very much, I was so focussed on the 'event' that I didn't see how straight forward the solution could be.
