Where did you get one for $10?
I like China)
It was a good price on byuincoins.com but now it is sold out.
I think similar prices should be on aliexpress

I found this:

http://imall.iteadstudio.com/prototyping/basic-module/m120525007.html

A US supplier of this module robotshop.com stocks them, but they are not in stock at the moment. Ordering from itead, would be cheap if you used regular mail, but can get very expensive when ordering via DHL or UPS to another country.

Now possible to place tickets for bugs/features

I would like to open up the arduino-plugin-wiki for public modifications.. but i'm afraid this will render spam.

So.. if you want to help improving the documentation. Please ask @mcvflorin for an code.mios.com account and PM me to get wiki update rights.

  • Release compat is not a bolted-on afterthought

@hek,
The Ticket mechanism used to draw spam also.  Hopefully you won't see that.

Hek - amazingly awesome project!!! Nice work and thank you!!!  Picked up a Veralite just two weeks ago and came across your project - perfect timing. I've began some testing and basically have everything working okay. Currently in the process of customizing your work to suit my home automation.

First part of my project is to build a "Wireless LCD Display Station" for the Veralite. The idea behind the display station is provide status of sensors around the house, so not having to use a computer or smartphone to get information - wife friendly interface. :-).

To start it will have the capability to display current time, climate inside/outside (temperature, humidity, pressure) and caller-id on a 16x2 LCD display. Additionally, the station will have LED's to indicate status of other senors around the house (i.e. garage dr, doorbell, motion, etc.).

BTW, I moved your "vera.requestStatus(CHILD_ID, V_TIME);" time code into a subroutine called "getTimeFunction" and now using time sync capabilities included as part of the standard Time library. Then I put the following code in void setup(). The time is resync'd every hour (or any interval) from Vera automatically.

 // Set time on Arduino
  setSyncProvider(getTimeFunction);  // Vera is time provider
  setSyncInterval(3600);  // get time from Vera every hour

Thanks again for all your work! Cheers!

Joe

@axill
Do you really think anyone will have more than 255 radio nodes over the same channel?! I would probably plug in another arduino/radio over another channel if I ever exceeded 255 nodes.  BTW The vera would probably collapse before this ;)

 
@guessed
Thanks for the info. Will keep it under observation for a while.

@joe
Thanks! Nice little project you got going. Please post some pictures and thanks for sharing your improvements (will try to incorporate it).


I'm preparing moving the project to GIT so you can share your little example sketches and/or improvements a little easier. But when I switch the subversion repo will be wiped (if I understand it correctly).

Joe, while you have wifi why you need Arduino plugin? You can use Vera API to get all the information including current time for your display.
Arduino GW is needed for wifi less nrf24 radio enabled devices.

@hek at least 2 additional bits will be good :) Vera i hope will continue be upgrading.

Sorry for confusion ... a wireless display station using RF24L01 radio and not WiFi.

O! it is much more interesting ) will be nice if you will join us and share examples.

Will share for sure ... my development is slow as I have only small amounts of time to work on it. :-) Waiting on 1.3 to complete to incorporate new improvements. Thanks for all you guys hard work!

Could someone post the version 1.21 zip in this thread. I only have the latest trunk-version and forgot to make a backup when switching to Git. :-[

Thanks

@hek I'm not sure it is what you asking for but please check

should dimmer work? I'm getting "No implementation" error
