RFLink, Wifi, Home Assistant

#1 Post by jgalak » 17 Mar 2019, 21:58

Hi folks. I just got an RFLink board from Nodo shop as well as the Wifi card. The RFLink is assembled, set up, and the Mega has been flashed. Monitoring the serial port of the Mega, I can see messages when I trigger 433MHz sensors (just a door sensor for now). So that all works, yay.

I intend to use this board with Home Assistant, and need to do it over Wifi, since the physical location of the Home Assistant server (in a server rack in the basement) doesn't really work well for getting good coverage of the planned sensors.

Unfortunately for me, all of the instructions for the wifi board are in Dutch, which I do not know. I've figured out enough from photos to be able to assemble the kit, but I can't figure out the firmware aspects. I've placed a NodeMCU board into the wifi adapter board, but don't know what to flash it with. ESP Easy seems an obvious choice, but I don't actually see it say so anywhere. The Home Assistant documentation for RFLink suggests ESP-link (https://www.home-assistant.io/components/rflink/). The RFLink FAQ mentions "ser2net".

So, which firmware should I use? Are there English-language instructions for this anywhere out there? If they are, I'd appreciate a pointer as my Google skills haven't revealed it.

Note: I'm not looking for an MQTT solution, just a way to pipe the serial data over wifi - Home Assistant has a component to process this data coming in this way.

Thanks,
Juliean.
