mc-Dev Board / mc-Dev Board is now available for purchase!
« on: June 30, 2016, 02:30:27 pm »
Hi everyone! We have re-designed our mc-Dev board and have made it available for purchase directly from our website! You can check out the details here: http://www.mcthings.com/products/mc-dev

We have also posted a video with our principle hardware engineer, Josh (mc-Josh), who describes the mc-Dev board functions, features and we also show a cool use case using a light detection sensor!
Using the mc-Dev board, you can now easily and quickly develop prototypes and proof of concept devices easily without the need for soldering! There are multiple pins that you can easily attach to breadboards to bring in other sensors or devices and connect them to an mc-Module! Be sure to check out the mc-Script documentation and the mc-mod110 technical sheet on our website to elp you bring your projects to life!!

Check out our video here: https://youtu.be/b6JoMtgul4M

@jeffmartin - I have done some testing myself with my freezer temperatures and also in my fridge. I had no issue receiving data from the modules although after leaving it in the freezer for a day, the standard cr2032 coin cell battery got quite cold and eventually quit reporting. It wasn't the module (they are rated to work from -40C to +85C) but the battery itself. I mentioned previously that looking at a BR2032 would be a better choice as they are designed to work in colder temperatures. You could, as Kristofferis mentioned, look at attaching a probe-type sensor that could live in the freezer and then your power source wouldn't be affected by the temperature. To learn more about the technical specs for the mc-mod110, please check out website for the technical spec sheet

mc-Module / Disconnecting your mc-Modules properly
« on: June 27, 2016, 03:23:29 pm »
Hi all!
Disconnecting the modules properly may help some of you who are having inconsistent connections and re-connections to your modules. We are looking at ways to modify this to make it easier for everyone. For those of you who have issues connecting or re-connecting to modules, the following may help:

The mc-Modules will send out a connection interval every 60 seconds. However, if the module is disconnected improperly, the module may not respond for 3-11 minutes (Depending on the scenario) as it still believes that it is connected to a gateway.
To properly disconnect your mc-Module either:
1) Load the program that you are working on into the module and mc-Studio will disconnect from the module properly
2) Connect to a virtual gateway and virtual module and the connection to the physical should be disconnected properly

Another trick is to power cycle the module just before connecting to it in mc-Studio. The module will send out a connection interval within 10 seconds of being power cycled. This helps if you want to connect to an mc-Module quickly and don't want to wait for potentially 1 minute for the module to send out a connection interval

mc-Studio / Re: McModule not connecting to McStudio

@gaston - I think one of the issues may live in the old gateway version. Please download the new version 06.-358 from the website and update your gateway via USB.
Note - you do need to ensure that the USB does not still have an old version still on the drive or the gateway may update itself with that file. Also, you must make sure the file is named ' mcGw110.bin '. If the file name is in anyway different, the mc-Gateway will not recognize and it will not update.

@plains203 - you are correct, the mc-Modules will send out a connection interval every 60 seconds. However, if the module is disconnected improperly, the module may not respond for 3-11 minutes (Depending on the scenario) as it still believes that it is connected to a gateway.
To properly disconnect your mc-Module (I will post this in the module topic as well) either:
1) Load the program that you are working on into the module and mc-Studio will disconnect from the module properly
2) Connect to a virtual gateway and virtual module and the connection to the physical should be disconnected properly

Another trick is to power cycle the module just before connecting to it in mc-Studio. The module will send out a connection interval within 10 seconds of being power cycled.

MQTT / Re: How to start with MQTT
« on: June 24, 2016, 11:04:59 am »
@Gaston - The app I used for the video (MQTT Dashboard) allowed me to enter my broker information and then enter the topics I was subscribed to via the settings. I was going to go through the instructions during the video but it was already getting long! The app settings were very intuitive and i assume other MQTT apps for Android and Apple will be similar. I had a quick search online and it does appear the MQTT Inspector is the best app available for Apple currently. In both Android and Apple there is a serious lack of these MQTT apps so if you know any app developers, this might be a good choice for their next app creation!

The easiest might be ordering online through a store like digikey: http://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/panasonic-bsg/BR-2032-BN/P186-ND/31924 or you could try some specialty electronic stores as well.

@Kristofferis - Great code, thanks for your help!

@Mapoisson - One thing to think about when using monitoring your freezer, there are industrial style 3V batteries that can handle lower temperatures better than standard cr2032 batteries. Since the mc-Modules are rated to work to -40C, the hardware is not an issue but you may lose battery life on a regular 3V when it is in your freezer for a long time. Might be something to look into if you are planning on keeping the module in your freezer for a while

@plains203 - Ok good! Can you do us a favor and try to enable UAC on one of the other computers and see if it will work (if possible and you have time)?
