In my kitchen I have 2 sonoffs. One in the overhead ceiling lamp (the wall switch didn’t have the ground/earth wire) There is another sonoff attached to a wall mounted “tv” from reusing a pc monitor and a firestick 2nd gen. In order to save a sonoff and place it elsewhere as well as centralizing all the iot in one spot I though I’d take … Continue reading Combining multisensor and sonoff
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
Newest build 2018.08.12 “Light switch with extra switches” Currently there is a wall switch which is unused. One staircase light was removed and the other is always on as it’s a ceiling fan with remote. As it stands now there is a blank faceplate covering the switch. 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)
BRUH got me into this. BRUH disappeared. Dr ZZs can in to fill the void. The hook up is assisting. BRUH left so I’m leaving too. Yeahnah. I love ya BRUH I can’t thank you enough for your push back into the electronics field. But the truth is the BRUH multisensors sometimes reset or freeze up. I would love to ask you about it alas … Continue reading BRUH to Tasmota conversion.
Picture of wires from blog In my old leaning house I have one live wire going to the light switch. nothing else is in the switch box. Now I thought that this would be because of the old leaning house that I’m in. However upon asking around it would seem as thought this is common in new constructions as well. This image goes to doesn’t … Continue reading Japanese wiring isn’t automation friendly.
After 2 months suddenly it stopped registering humidity.The reading for a few days were very high. I chalked it off as the humidity factor as we enter the rainy season. But today was 45-50% humidity.Even the wash area sensor registered 60.Something was wrong.It seemed to be recovering a little but i no longer felt it was accurate. So I swapped it for the DHT22 in … Continue reading DHT22 AM2302
Originally I automated the rental house by attaching the sonoff to the device they would control as opposed to the switch as the wiring was a single switch wire and it’s a rental. That also meant that I covered the switch plates with an extended and a blank faceplate. The switches permanently in the on position underneath. The sonoff needs a ground connection? it’s also … Continue reading Redo with wemos D1 mini?
When installing a reed switch or PIR sensor the output of the wires is sometimes cause for concern. In my previous setup the jumper wires came out with power cables. This eventually let to interference of the power with the PIR sensor and caused much ghosting. I had read about people sticking the wires out the top but then realized that they all drilled a … Continue reading Sonoff basic GPIO14 cabling
Not long after making my BRUH multisensors I realized I had to modify one to have 2 PIR sensors. Editing the code I managed to do just that. PIR installed. Tested and works great. It’s a multisensor in middle of a corridor with 2 AM312s pointing in opposite directions. About a month later one of the PIRs started to have ghosting or signs of failure. … Continue reading AM312 PIR issues
Dr ZZs once made a video about ghost switching. When long leads pickup signals and the esp8266 (sonoff) interprets them as inputs. Not quite the case. Although the cases for the multi sensors are a little ghostly. (Car air fresheners containers from Daiso) My light was going on and off randomly in a room that was not occupied. His happened in consistently at night which … Continue reading USB ghost switching
