Timer rules not working

#1 Post by Dick60 » 01 Jan 2021, 18:16

I installed the 27 dec build. Now I found that mij timer is not working.
In turn ON the GPIO 15 but does not turn it off after 30 seconds
Does anyone see what I am doing wrong?

Code: Select all

On Keukenradar#Distance do
if [Keukenradar#Distance]=1
GPIO,15,1
timerset,1,30
endif
endon

On Rules#Timer=1 do
GPIO,15,0
endon

Can you show the way stuff is wired up? Possibly create a Fritzing diagram to show here?

Does it turn off if you send the GPIO,15,0 command from the Tools tab?

Might it be that it is turned back on immediately after turning it off?

The wiring is quite simple. GPIO 8 is directly connected to a relaisboard. If I send a GPIO,15,0 it turns off. Included you find also a part of my log:

Here the log after turn off using the tools command line:

"log": "port#15: set to 0",
"plugin": 1,
"pin": 15,
"mode": "output",
"state": 0
}

Please try not to use a mix of D8 and GPIO-15 (though they are the same pin), that's only confusing stuff. The D{n} port numbers are just an 'invention' of Wemos (AFAIK), naming the actual GPIO numbers is more generic, IMHO.

Why is GPIO,15,1 being set from HTTP? Is another system (Domoticz, Homey, whatever) also being smart and trying to control this port?

Your log:

Code: Select all

1938494: EVENT: Keukenradar#Distance=0
1949482: HTTP: GPIO,15,1
1949486: GPIO : port#15: set to 1

Good point, to reduice the margin of error I deactivated the HTTP connection. I use Domomticz, where I use a switch for a manual mode (during a holiday. In that case I use the timerswitch with some restrictions using the IF commands. But that is out of scope for now.
For now this is the Log without the HTTP connection.

Can you add a line in the Rules#Timer=1 event that logs something recognizable to see if you actually get there, f.e. LogEntry,"In Timer 1 handler", and check the log if that is turning up?

You can quickly test the timer from the Tools tab, by submitting this command: event,Rules#Timer=1

but if I add the log option to this part of the timer

Code: Select all

On Rules#Timer=1 do
GPIO,15,0
LogEntry,"In Timer 1 handler"
endon

It never arrivés in the log

Have you tried triggering the Rules#Timer=1 event as suggested? Then it should be visible in the log.

Well, I'm more interested to see if the message is visible in the log...

The message is now visible in the log.
Was trying other settings, in Tools/Advanced Settings/Rules Sttings I selected "Old Engine". That solved the Timer issue. Now it works but I do not like I do not know WHY!!!.
I hope you can explain.

Aha, the 'new' Rules engine isn't working exactly as intended yet, so the 'old' engine should be used. It was enabled when initially setting up the unit, I presume?

Moving all your logic to the rules files will be a small chore, I think, but then you'll see it'll workout alright.

Ah een Nederlands feestje hier :)

Just browsed through the topic and one thing immediately came to mind; When using Domiticz with ESPEasy and trying to control switches from Domoticz, then please consider using MQTT as that makes things a lot simpler to get it right.
To get an idea of how to handle GPIO control from Domoticz via MQTT see: https://espeasy.readthedocs.io/en/lates ... z%20helper
