mc-Innovations / Re: Communicate Wireless Sensor using MCthings platform
« Last post by kristofferis on June 25, 2018, 03:40:47 am »
Hello. That sounds like a good idea.
What temperature sensor do you use now? I guess you want to connect the same sensors that you have now.

mc-Innovations / Communicate Wireless Sensor using MCthings platform
« Last post by fany89 on June 25, 2018, 03:34:51 am »
Hi, I using wireless temperature sensor which consist of Zigbee module to make connection wireless but I am looking the better way to connect these sensor through wireless communication system with MC things software tools which help sensor readings should be stored to server data base and by using MqTT protocol we will be to send the alerts to user's smartphones whenever temperature sensor readings goes up or down from the mentioned range

This Platform is much newer for me so will be looking forward for your helpful advice

I'm having the same problem. After a day or two, the data stops flowing and I need restart the gateway.

Versions:
McGateway 110:
GwVersion: 0.9-958
LpLanVersion: 0.9-615
McModule 110:
Version: not sure, but probably 0.9-615 as I updated everthing at the same time and I see 0.9.615 in my download/mcthings folde but the devices tool shows 0 for version.

Any way we can fix this?

MQTT / Re: Not seeing any MQTT messages
« Last post by michaelblight on June 17, 2018, 08:02:02 am »
Solved it!

I'm guessing the USB stick I used to update the Application Processor (mcGw110.bin) was reporting over 100mA required and so the update was not working. I noticed mcOTA was reporting version 6.* rather than 9.*. I had updated the Host Processor, so perhaps the two versions were not compatible. Anyway, when I redid everything with a different USB stick, lo and behold, MQTT messages being sent and received.

MQTT / Not seeing any MQTT messages
« Last post by michaelblight on June 17, 2018, 02:31:01 am »
I'm trying this for the first time and not having much luck. I have Mosquitto installed in a Docker container running under Ubuntu. On my laptop I can run MQTT.fx and successfully publish and subscribe. I also have Home Assistant connected, and it can respond to the messages published from MQTT.fx too.

I have the following code running on a mcModule110:

Code: [Select]
Class TestHeartbeat
    Shared Event SendMessage() RaiseEvent Every 15 Seconds
        Dim payload As ListOfByte = New ListOfByte()
        payload.Add("testing")
        Lplan.Publish("heartbeat", payload)
        LedGreen = Not LedGreen
    End Event
End Class

And I have the mcGate110 config set to my Mosquitto server (192.168.0.39:1883). The green LED goes on and off every 15 seconds, but no messages arrive at either MQTT.fx or Home Assistant. And MQTT.fx can scan for topics, but nothing shows up. Any help would be much appreciated.

mc-Things General Discussion / Question about Kickstarter versions
« Last post by michaelblight on June 11, 2018, 10:02:50 pm »
I backed a mc-router and 3 mc-modules on kickstarter back in the day. For various reasons they remained unused. Until now. Before I start, does anybody know what issues I will face in trying to use these? Like: is a mc-router and a mc-gateway the same thing; does the current IDE still work with those versions; can the firmware be updated on them; were there battery issues with the 1st gen; is the Kickstarter mc-module the same as the 100; am I wasting my time; etc.

mc-Things General Discussion / Re: Help with the accelerometer (mcMod120)

Hi Junkboy,

Sorry for the delay.

1) How quickly are you expecting to transmit the acclerometer data? If you are trying to transmit any less than every 30 seconds, you will likely start to run into issues as the system is designed for low-power. It is not designed for continuous transmission of data due to the low-power and design of the platform. We do have many users who are using the accelerometer and either sending a sample every 30 seconds (or at a longer interval) or programming logic onto the device where you can do some computing to send out a particular value on an acceptable interval.

For your uses, you'll need to work on you code and programming to get what you need - since there are not a lot of available examples on using the accelerometer yet, you'll need to put in the time and effort on your own code at this time. as mentioned, in the new system there is some more accelerometer examples that might help you out but that wont be accessible until the new system is available to everyone (in the next month or two). There are users here on the forum that have done some fancy things with the accelerometer and might be able to provide you code and help. I do not have permission from our users and clients to share those examples at this time.

My recommendation would be to look at the library for the accelerometer within mcStudio to understand it a fully and you can also search around online for others using the same sensor of other hardware - you can then take those examples and work on moving them into the mcStudio environment for your own use.

Hope that helps!

In addition to the previous question, I would like to know if there is any instruction that gives me the acceleration in each axis, because the example that you shared with me shows the following:

'set accelerometer to cause interrupt if accelation is > 1.4Gs for longer than 5ms (any axis)
        dev.ConfigureShockInterrupt(1.4F, 5)

but .. it is in any axis, I am interested in obtaining the acceleration in each of the axes.

I am trying to do my best to understand how the code that you send me as an example works, but is there a way to always be sending the current orientation of the device? I want to know at all times or as soon as possible the location, let me put you in context, for example, at the start I have: X = 0 Y = 0 Z = 0 in that case the device would be on the floor with all axes at "0" but let's say I start walking with the device at my leg, in that case let's say that we would have X = 12 Y = 8 Z = 15 that data I want to be taking for example every second or every 500 ms to keep a continuous tracking of the information, right now idk how to send that info by MQTT but.. I use an example that I found at internet that send the temp and batteryVoltaje to Losant and I'm using Losant until I learn how to send that data to my own server.

FAQ's / Re: Registering New Devices - Help, I'm new in Mcthings
« Last post by mc-T2 on May 30, 2018, 09:32:18 am »
That is correct - you will need an mcGateway120 and you'll also need to move your mcMod120(s) to the latest version as well.

mcCloud will be released publicly soon - we are finishing some development internally on mcCloud.

ALSO - we will be offering discounted equipment to our existing users and forum members which will allow you all to move to the new system. keep an eye out for a note on the details of this deal - you should see it very soon!
