For over a year I would replace the DHT22 (or its small brother the DHT11) outdoors after a few months if I cared to do so. It’s located in a cutout of a small Tupperware container strapped under my deck roof. No rain can get to it but the roof is no completely opaque and lets a fair amount of sun through. Although the temperature … Continue reading DHT22 is useless outdoors: replacement.
The title was going to be another rant against Hass.io but in the end it seems it my fault. (Again) TL;DR Firewall settings for AD, malware, malicious urls disabled update worked fine. Maybe a host system reboot would be in order as well. Original title: Hass.io at 0.92.1 still not for the masses The title is repetitive as this problems are repetitive in nature. During … Continue reading Solved (for me) Hassio not showing update notification. [pfSENSE]
Sunshine… I thought that this movement false positive was only a cheap ip camera thing. Alas no… Come to think of it two sensors are starting to act up. Upstairs bedroom and outside. The bedroom sensor used to give me false positives due to a bad power supply. The outdoor one now seems to alert a lot as the shadow of the house grows and … Continue reading RCWL-0516: More outdoor issues with the PIR AM312

I was thinking to put in some httm capacitive switches. (As in pic) Update: The blank faceplate is … Continue reading Reed sensor not working on d8. Nodemcu woes. (BRUH conversion)
Update for sonoffs and update path. From 5.12 the migration path seems to indicate 5.14->6.1.1. Tasmoadmin allows a 5.12->6.1.1 jump. All sorts of strange behaviour has ensued. After update the units would sporadically go offline. The AP wasn’t connectable. Button management on the sonoff was ineffective. All sorts of button presses attempted ie 4 quick times for an AP, 40 seconds straight to reset the … Continue reading Tasmota revert to 6.11 -> 5.12 after OTA failure

Grafana ok Tasmoadmin ok Pretty much all but the GUI and iOS. Selecting full restore (wipe restore) with the snapshot isn’t working. Partial restore works but configuration.yaml isn’t loaded. Reinstalling didn’t work. Reinstalling, adding samba, adding the snapshot didn’t work. … Continue reading Dark day
Part 1 June 2018 I had called softwank last week to get clarification on a double charge of 33000¥ (300USD) on my credit card statement. Originally I had called the residential internet department as I suspected it was a double cancelation fee in error for breaking the contract. Internet department checked and it wasn’t on their side. They advised me to check the statement and … Continue reading Softwank (mobile) part 2
