Trouble with ESP Easy and temp sensors

Post by mountainmannm » Wednesday 05 September 2018 4:53

Has anybody successfully set up a working temperature/humidity sensor with ESP Easy? I've been trying everything I can think of, and I just can't seem to make this work. I've tried different ESP8226 boards, different types of sensors, pull up resistors, pull-down resistors, and changed many configuration settings and just can't seem to get ESP Easy to display a temp value. Seems like there's some bug or setting that has to be just rite that I haven’t figured out. If anybody has any ideas (or a better way to use a wired temp sensor with Domoticz) I'd appreciate it!

What sensor are you using and what ESP?

In general it's quite basic to get it working.

Should be simple indeed. I have 2 of then. Both running espeasy with a dht22 sensor on a gpio port. You should see readings in the log of the esp device. Created dummy temphum device in domoticz and told esp to update it.
Pi3, latest beta
RFXCOM, z-wave (AEOTEC, switches, temhum, pir, contacts),
Plugwise2py, P1 'smart'meter & solar panel
Alexa, Wifi Cams motion detection
ESP: relays, PIR & Temp/TempHum
Geofence iCloud, Bluetooth & Wifi ping
Harmony hub, Nest

Hi there, thanks for your replies. I'm using a Node MCU Lua ESP chip. Some of the sensors I've tried are the BME280, DS18B20, SHT-11, DHT-11 and maybe some others. I'm on ESP Easy version R120. Seems like this should be easy, and there's something obvious that I'm missing.
Edit: I thought I'd add that I can't see anything but zeros in the ESP interface, the problem isn't sending the value to Domoticz. I notice that if I do an I2C scan in tools, I can see the device on the I2C bus, but no value! Also, I have several RFID card readers up and running and they work very well. Thanks for your replies!
