which GPIO?

I am struggling with a simple problem. Am setting up a new NodeMCU that needs to switch two relays, and handle two input switch devices. After some experimenting I managed to connect the two relay lines to GPIO12 and 14. I can control them by sending http commands thru on/off actions in Domoticz. Bu...

Verbluffend hoeveel modellen er zijn. Ik gebruik zelf al een paar jaar een stel sensors die er net weer anders uitzien, maar hetzelfde werken.

Re: LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

why not send a empty line first ? or fill up what you send with spaces ? How? I have trouble sending spaces with the remote command. When doing it from Domoticz dummy device, the message cuts off at the first space, the rest is ignored. From LUA I have been playing with different ways, no success s...

Re: LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

I just checked the code, and as far as I can see only three commands were implemented: on, off and clear. Obviously the author wanted to keep the code lean and mean... The one command I am really missing is clearline. I want to use the four lines independently, and sometimes characters remain on the...

Re: LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

glad it worked! i think there are not so many options, however you could check the ESPEasy Core code and the included lcd plugin for further information on commands. just load the latest source from github and load into arduino IDE. I think I will do that as soon as I can find the time, and then pe...

Re: LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

Yes, that did it! I can now send commands from the dummy device or from LUA, which opens up the door to what I want: a message box to which I can send status and warning messages. Great.

Is there a list of commands for the LCD? I see on, off and clear in the Wiki. Anything else?

LCD display works but is not accessible from Domoticz

I attached a J204A display to a NodeMCU and configured it according to the example in the Wiki: put the uptime in line 1, and some test lines in 2, 3 and 4. It comes up just fine: first text ESPEasy, then the 4 lines, and backlit mode switches off after a while. I tried to send these commands from a...

Re: Wifi IoT Relay Board Based on ESP8266

It's a pity that they charge extra for shipping. I can get a Sonoff at Ali for $7. Of course the Sonoff has a single relay, this board has a double.
Hope it will be in Ali shop over time.

Re: New ESP gadget

I used V78, so no rules in EasyESP I think.
For now I solved it in Domoticz, almost 100% correct (small problem synchronizing the state of the pushbutton between device and Domoticz)

Re: New ESP gadget

OK. I found a source for $7, including shipping. So unless I want to order 5 units this is cheaper. In Domoticz I was able to control the LED, and pick up on the pushbutton. So far so good. Now for the next step: can I control the relay and the LED from the same device? This would need me to put two...

Re: New ESP gadget

OK, got it. As it turns out my usb/serial device contains a "fake" PL2303, which is detected and refused by the latest drivers. Solution is to install an old version of the driver. After I did that, flashing EasyESP into the device was very simple. Installation into Domoticz was not as I expected: I...

OK, I got through step 1 (soldered a 4-pin male header). And found out that the inner pin is vcc, outer pin is gnd. The two pins in between must be TXD/RXD, not sure which is which. I connected these four to a serial adapter to USB, but the unit comes up in Windows device manager with a warning tria...

Which LUX sensor

I see that EasyESP supports two LUX sensors: BH170 and TSL2561. Which is the best choice? Based on price the BH1750 is slightly cheamer at $1,03, while TSL2561 is $1,66. Marginally cheaper, so I would rather choose the best. Any advice? Also, is there support for the simple (and no doubt: cheapest) ...

Jan, I haven't really thought about this yet. I bought a couple of these units just for fun, along with several other sensors. So I even don't have a clue yet on how to interpret the output. Will see when I get there. OK, so I can simply hook it up to a NodeMCU. Then in EasyESP, select which sensor?...

Unit ML8511 is a reasonably priced UV sensor.

If not, any chance of getting this supported in EasyESP?

freeze

I have two test Nodes running ESPEasy, both have a DSP18B20 sensor, and both are powered by a USB power unit. Both units have shown the occasional "freeze". The sensor turns red in Domoticz and never wakes up again. When I restart it (disconnect USB line and reconnect) it comes back online. Any clues?
