Hardware Support Request

#1 Post by jay_s_uk » 31 Dec 2015, 02:46

Hello,

Would it be possible to support the HC-SR501 PIR motion sensor and the INA219 DC Current sensor boards please?

The HC-SR501 PIR motion sensor is already supported because it actually works like a switch.

The I2C INA219 board would be usefull to measure DC-currents. I support the request.

Thanks for letting me know about the HC-SR501. Might be handy to add it to the wiki?

I'm planning on using the INA219 board to know when my milights are actually on as they don't provide feedback.

found out that the HC-SR501 is not that stable if used on 3.3V (I think it's restarting each 10sec).
Working well if VCC is getting 5V.
Located in Belgium, Bruges. Working on a full DIY domoticz setup with ESPEasy.

The HC-SR501 needs 5Volt, as there is a regulator on board
But you could connect 3.3V after this regulator, then it works

Another problem i realized:
If you put both the HC-SR501 and the ESP in an enclosure where they sit behind each other, you get distortions,, it won´t work

I've ordered one of those INA219 boards from China. Will see what we can do when it arrives...

Thank you. Mine comes next week.
Looking forward to playing with it

You could download R66 from github, it has the first INA219 plugin release:

I only have a small LED attached to 5 volts USB power, so the current reading is not very impressive...
But it seems to work.

Have tried it with my LED strips and it all works fine.
Thanks again

Edit****
I had to change the address in the plugin as it was conflicting with another device.
The INA219 has 4 different available addresses, 40, 41, 44 and 45.
Would it be possible to add this to the devices page? That way I can use the OTA function without having to edit the file before hand.
