kaku not going off

Post by DaWauZ » Saturday 11 November 2017 14:49

Hello,

I have a kaku light switch which is working fine with a kaku remote, but less with domoticz. I don't know exactly why.
The kaku is near the rfxcom about 1,5 meters, could that be the problem?
When doing on command in domoticz, it goes on, when clicking off, it wont go off. Sometimes it does, but that will be 1 of the 20 times i try.
When light is on, by domoticz or remote, then doing off with remote, in domoticz it is also going off. But when clicking the switch in domoticz to turn off, the ligtht doesn't go off, in domoticz it is showing then off.

I already tried to delete it, and add it again. Maybe trying to change the channel on the remote and then add again in domoticz?

Sounds like a typical case of RF Noise.
Hard to track down, could be in your home or a neighbor has something that causes RF Noise.
Try to seek for any device like microwave, chromecast, modem/router, tv ect that could cause the issue.
Or if you have battery powered sensors one of them could be empty.
Setup:
- RPi3 - PIco HV3.0A / Domo Beta 3.9XXX / RFXtrx433E / Aeotec Gen5
- RPi3 - PIco HV3.0A / PiHole / PiVPN / NAS / Print Server
- Youless Elec&Gas
- FI9803P Cams
- KD101 detectors
- Zwave & KaKu

I have 2 temp sensors, and took the batterys off but no difference.
Resettet the kaku and added on another channel of the remote, also no luck.
My router is the range of 1,5 metres, powered off no difference.
My microwave is on the other side of the wall of the switch about 20cm higher, cant take him really out but thing is doing nothing right now.
Neighbours, I dont know. If I take the remote near to the rfxcom, it works fine. RFXcom is doing same thing though?
going crazy on this.
Maybe there is a better solution, I dont know exactly but I am using now the kaku awmr-300 so I can use the common wall switch and a remote to do the switch it. No matter what way the common wall switch is.
Is there maybe a wifi solution for this like sonoff?

Which device is connected to the KAKU?

KAKU modules should not be placed close together (< 25cm)
Try the KAKU modul on another location.

Some devices produce RF noise, for example a LED lamp.
Try with an incandescent light bulb.

It's a led bulb. But still then the remote should do the same thing as the rfxcom right?
Tried another bulb halogene and it was about the same behaviour, suddenly the thing started to react normal again. Switched to led bulb and it's working till now.
Strange, I am not fully convinced if it's working oke by now.

The difference between the remote and the RFXtrx433 is the number of RF packets transmitted.
Try with a very short press on the remote to simulate the RFXtrx433E transmit.

Yep...
As mentioned earlier, typical RF Noise behaviour.
Seen it here a lot and after searching for two week in noticed my Chromcast (although different freq) was the cause.
But also saw it happen when a batery was empty in other 433mhz devices like Temp sensors, motion ect.

Hmm. How can I send more than one on signal or off signal per switch?

Use a script e.g. in Dzvents. Create a dummyswitch which you use to switch on and off.
Then use a script like the following to switch your devices multiple times.

Code: Select all

 return {
    active = true,
    on = {
        devices = {
            'Huiskamer Lampen'
        }
    },
    execute = function(domoticz, switch)
        
        domoticz.log(switch.state)
    
        if (switch.state == 'On') then
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOn()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOn().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOn().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOn().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOn()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOn().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOn().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOn().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOn()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOn().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOn().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOn().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOn()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOn().afterSec(10)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOn().afterSec(20)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOn().afterSec(30)
        
        end
            
       if (switch.state == 'Off') then
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOff()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOff().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOff().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Achterkamer').switchOff().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOff()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOff().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOff().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Dressoir').switchOff().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOff()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOff().afterSec(3)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOff().afterSec(6)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp TV').switchOff().afterSec(9)
            
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOff()
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOff().afterSec(10)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOff().afterSec(20)
            domoticz.devices('Lamp Erker Wit Dim').switchOff().afterSec(30)
            
        end
    end
}

In normal Lua...

commandArray['MyDeviceName']=On REPEAT 3 INTERVAL 3'

repeat means how many times to repeat the signal.
Interval means the time between each signal command.

Can I use it here like this?

If yes, and want it to use the switch in a blockly, will it use this as above?
