Do you still have any. What is the current cost for them.
Yes. I have some. It is $28/module shipped to US address.
I may have not mentioned it in this community. The battery is optional. You can use the module without a battery.
Update: I only have 8 modules left from the last 2 batches.
I have shipped everyone modules who has requested in the past few days. They should be on the way today.
I’d be interested to hear what projects people have done with the expanded version of the Environmental Sensor, using the digital and analogue pins. “Out of the box” it’s plug and play, you get temp, humidity, luminance, pressure and a Zigbee Repeater. And using the pins (that are soldered on) you can add more sensors, there are child DH’s for contact, motion, water, mq9, sound, temp probe and switch. One example I use is to water indoor plants and the garden with this capacitive moisture sensor.
I have it all on locally running switches, if the soil changes to dry, in my case less than 1.5volts, it flips a virtual switch. I’m very happy with them, stable, instantly responsive, and so easy to setup compared to ST_Anything that I looked at trying previously.
Iman, I received my sensor today however the 330uF capacitor appears to have one lead disconnected. I cannot pair it, either with ST or Hubitat (I have tried resetting the module by inserting the module with button depressed, waiting 2 seconds and releasing; no go). I have tried a couple of different USB power supplies. The bright white LED (and smaller red one) are lit. My eyes can’t really resolve it, but it appears that there is something bridging the two leads (see photo) so as to short circuit them (or the leads are staggered and one lead was intended to be attached to what appears to be a square land between them?). FWIW, I had no issues pairing my the first sensor I bought to my HE hub.
I tested the sensor before I ship it out. It is possible that it is damaged during the shipment. I can send you another one. To reset the module, please unplug it from any power (battery and USB). Then press the button. Then plug the power to DC and hold the button for 4 seconds and then release it. Lte me know if it pair.
The capacitor would not cause the sensor not to pair. It is need it to stabilize the 3.3v (only during battery operation).
Unfortunately I cannot get it to pair on either hub using your directions. I would appreciate it if you would send me another? I will return this one to you.
Sensor received and paired immediately. Thank you!
Thank you for letting me know.
If you guys have not imported the DTH to your ide, here is my github link.
I also want to update everyone that I only have 5 modules left from the last 2 batches. You are interested PM me.
Hello, do you still have any module left? thank you!
I only have a couple of them left. PM me if you are interested.
for some reason I don’t understand, I am not allowed to send a PM to you …
It is because your account is brand new. The Discourse Forum software has built-in anti-spammer features to prevent new accounts from doing certain things until you have demonstrated ‘normal user behavior’ instead of auto-spammer behvior. Did you go through the discobot tutorial? That will help to unlock some of the forum features. The rest come with time and usage.
Got it. thank you!
Even better, use conformal coating spray. Can be had from multiple sources. (except mask light sensor active area and push button top.) I use it all the time. One can will last years.
How do you use the DTH to the IDE? Which IDE? and how do you deploy .groovy files to an embedded board?
Many thanks in advance.
This may help…
I just want to update the community that I will be ordering a few new boards. I have made some of improvement on the hardware side.
I have been getting questions whether I have module to share on my inbox. I do not have any modules available as we speak. I apologize that I have not been able to get to answer them. Between working on the new board and my day job, I have very been very busy.
In term of ETA, I should be getting the board sometime in thanksgiving. Some of the components will be arriving at the same time. I will have free time during the year end break when I can build them. If everything goes as plan, I will have some module to share at this time.
FYI, I am doing this as a hobby. I wish that I can manufacture the module in the future once the design is set. Until then, the number of module that I can build will be small. It also would be available sparsely. I am really sorry about this for those who are expecting the modules at this time. I will keep everyone updated with my progress here.
