Re: Voltage monitor with ESP8266

Hi, I thought I would post an update, I was able to get rid of the voltage spikes by adding a capacitor to the center of the voltage divider and putting the other leg to the ground of the esp8266 board!. that problem is now all gone. I love it when a problem is that simple to get rid of and gets rid...

Re: DC Power Meter for Battery Monitoring using BT-DCPM and Rpi 3

That is very sweet! I built a voltage monitor to run off wifi but I am still working out the bugs, this looks like a well built solution.

Wifi voltage monitor with EPS8266 and ESPeasy.

https://youtu.be/rpFmTUszNPI

Now I can know what my batter pack is and have a history of where it has been.

Still have to work out some problems, but so nice to have this working. :D

Re: Voltage monitor with ESP8266

So I guess what you do is disable "enabled" on the device, then create a loop with timers so that it reads the data compares with last then sends via rules. I took a quick look at rules, but I did not see where they detailed how to send the data to domoticzs..... If you have a link to an example tha...

Re: ESP8266 + ESPEasy + Battery => share of results

What settings do you recommend for testing sleep mode? So do you touch a wire from GPO 16 to reset to get this mode started? ( if So I may install a momentary switch for this ) I have never done this, and if you can point me to a tutor, as I did not see one on their site. At present my solution is u...

Re: Voltage monitor with ESP8266

I like that solution, I like that alot! Rules on the ESP8266 board, would filter any bad data before it would be recorded and thus there would be no problem data, only missing gaps. I guess the next trick is to switch to the ESP32 so that I can use the sleep mode to save power so I can run this on b...

Re: Voltage monitor with ESP8266

The only issue I get is I get an value of -65 V on like a random basis. I am guessing this is cause by flyback voltage to the battery, but I am not sure how to filter that out, but I can manually remove the data points with the shift click on the graft. I love searching these forums :-)

Voltage monitor with ESP8266

Using a voltage divider I was able to make a voltage monitor with the ESP8266, with ADS1115. The Outback charge controller was a real pain to give me the voltage in any form that I could use with Domoticz, but now I have a complete status even on my cell phone. I love this program, combined with Esp...

MeWe

I have created a board on MeWe to help discuss ESP8266 - Esp32 - Domoticz stuff, and thought I would send a link to that forum for those who are interested. https://mewe.com/group/5b32c5e6178fca111e9fb75f I have completed a voltages monitor and I have the details on this board of how I did it with a...

Can Domotics be set for seconds instead of minutes?

I have a mist sprayer I would like to come on every 30 seconds, but I do not see place to put seconds into a start / off time that I have found. Is there a way to say at 8 AM - 8 PM Turn on the device run 10 seconds and turn off? I wanted to do this internally instead of doing external script. thanks!

Re: Battery voltage monitor.

Thanks for the suggestions. I being familiar with the ESP8266 I think this is the route I want to go. After looking at the max voltage of INA219 at 26 volts I think I want to go with another breakout instead. The INA169 breakout board goes up to 60 V, so I think this is what I want, but I don't know...

Battery voltage monitor.

I am looking to monitor my 24 V battery pack 5 KWH. I wish to use Domoticz to check if the battery pack is full via solar if so, I will then have it control other switches dependant on battery voltage. Is there a device that is commercially made that does this already on the cheap? I found this, but...

Re: cheapest IP camera

Out of my drawer came my android phone camera, and now it replaces my need to have a voltage monitor for my batteries, now I can see the charge controller from my desktop! wooo hooo.
