Very good information ! I have been contemplating getting into this myself. My first hurdle us which radio to choose. I see you are using the NRF24l01+ and not the RFM69 do you care to tell us why ? I have read that the RFM69 has longer range, but are there other caveats that you know about ?

If you are just starting then I'd suggest sticking with the NRF24l01+ simply because most existing projects use them so it's less of a hurdle adapting to use for your own projects. They are also two to three times cheaper so it makes each individual sensor cheaper. I'd only suggest using something else if you find you have range issues. Keep in mind you can always have sensors that are also repeater nodes (or just a dedicated repeater node) that can act as a link for remote sensors to get to your central gateway - for example you might have your gateway in the middle of the house somewhere, but you want a sensor in your mailbox and the distance causes issues. If you put a repeater node/sensor for the front door, the mailbox sensor can talk to the front door sensor/repeater that in turn will pass the info on to the central gateway. (https://www.mysensors.org/about/network). It's sort of a mesh network, although more properly a tree network.

General / No answer from Vera Support
« Last post by geoay on Today at 05:59:16 am »
I am facing an issue to make an RFX working with my Veraplus.
I sent several messages to Vera Support.
I never receive any answer  ! >:(
I don't understand why. I know  that Vera support is very effective.
What can happened ?
Hopefully I can trust on this forum (thank's tinman !) but I would like to have the direct support and benefit of the posibility the access directly my box.
If Vera support is reading this forum, PLEASE HELP !

Ok, restarts doesn't work for me, bu i tried to delete and recreate the instance, and then it responded as normal again (while the other 4 still runs as bad as before).

The learning function is probably good where there is no influence from other rooms, some of mine is in rooms that may have open doors over extended periods, and that may make some weird constants. A Reset button would at least fix the problem temporarily, until one gets an off switch for the self learning adjustments.

My controller went down today.
It is in remote location so I can't check what's going on, but other devices at that location are working fine.
I've tried to re-boot it remotely (It is plugged to WiFi remote switch) but no success.

Edit: It's up again, with no trackable reason (no alerts from time it went down). Maybe in logs, but I don't know how to get them remotely.

DLNA Media Controller plugin / Re: DLNA CONTROLLER does not work anymore
« Last post by rjayyyy on Today at 04:17:23 am »
Ok did the file mod as suggested, same deal can discover / install patch but can't select.  :-\ :'(

did a search for that port_number suggested but couldn't find it in any of the associated files

I am also using about 5 of these myself and I am seeing similar issues. I have yet to find a surefire way to fix it. For me, a restart of the controller seems to work the best. Sometimes a luup restart works as well.

There is some work being done currently to update the Anthor Smart Virtual Thermostat and I am hoping this will bring it up to level and fix the issues what we are having and hopefully also add some Alexa controllability into the mix. Look it up here: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,44287.0.html

After upload edited file - plugin can load patch and discover devices - but I can't add it (select)
Same result in Sonos post

Andrey

There was one final post on that thread that might help, as now that you can discover them have you tried editing the LUA file: and hunting down any lines containing the changed port due to the firmware changes;

"I made no changes to the lua. I did not really check it but a similar fix may be required. basically port_49451 should not be used and be replaced by using port_3480 "

This is not unheard of... several threads found if you search for "no space left on device."

Solutions include just waiting, or calling support.  I did notice this one in particular...
