A list of nodes
Name Description Usage Realization status Quality
Back Door Sensor A small module powered by a coin cell to detect if the back door is open. Backdoor Working Works good.
Blinds Module A module to open or close the blinds of a window. Living Working Works good, but needs better construction inside. Also: still a risk for the relays when operating manually: needs protection circuit on the relay contacts.
CO2 Node T6703-5K A module that measure the CO2 ppm with a T6703-5K unit. Living Working The prototype works good. It took a few days before the unit was calibrated correctly.
Coin Cell Node A coin cell powered Arduino Pro Mini sensor to detect an open window (or door) and measure temperature and humidity. Anywhere Working Works good.
Coin Cell Stable Node The Stable Node used with a coin Cell and a reed contact to detect the state of a switch (door, window, button) Backdoor Working, Destroyed I accidently reversed power supply, that destroyed it.
Controllino Domotica Controllino Domotica MySensors Gateway with inputs and outputs Hidden Working The relay contacts sometimes stick together when switching on/off a few times after each other. This is treated with more delay in the software and NTC Thermistor Resistor 47D-15.
Curtain Module A module to open or close the curtains of a window. Living Planned  
DeltaTempFanController A module to control a fan based on temperature difference. TV Cabinet Working The temperature measurement is perfect, but the fan PWM not: makes noise and stops at some speeds – improvement needed.
Domoticz on Synology NAS Domoticz on Synology NAS Living Working, Retired There are no up-to-date versions available on the NAS, and it is hard to add Python files etc.
Door Window Button Sensor A cheap battery powered sensor to detect an open window/door or switch Anywhere Working, Retired It works, but is not made in reliable way. Replaced by an other sensor.
Fan Module Control a bathroom fan remotely, with button. Bathroom Working Works good, is also repeater. Sometimes there is no connection with the gateway, and then there is no reaction on pressing the button. Might be improved to react locally.
Gateway Ethernet W5100 The gateway between the NRF24L01+ network and the Controller. Used medium: Ethernet Living Working Working good.
Gateway MQTT Client The gateway between the NRF24L01+ network and the Controller. Used medium: MQTT (via Ethernet) Living Planned I experimented once with it, but do not need it.
Gateway NodeMCU ESP8266 MySensors Gateway build with NodeMCU ESP8266 Upstairs Working, Retired Used as an extra MySensors gateway on a different radio channel. Works fine, but not used anymore.
House Web Server A web server for house documentation - if the house is sold, then this webserver contains the documentation that the new owners need to receive. Hall Working, Retired Works fine, but if I keep it switched on, nobody will be using it. The limitations to the tree of files is quite severe – not very usefull.
RadioWifi Radio Wifi NodeMCU ESP8266 with VS1053B Audio Codec Living Working Works fine, sometimes slight interruptions, but still enjoyable.
RepeaterRFNanoTenstar A MySensors Repeater made with an RepeaterRFNanoTenstar   Failed The Tenstar modules do not respond – is there even a working bootloader inside?
RepeaterProMini A MySensors Repeater made with an Arduino Pro Mini 5V   Working, Retired  
RepeaterProMiniWithSi7021 A MySensors Repeater made with an Arduino Pro Mini 5V and a Si7021 House Working It works good as a repeater – but it needs a strategic location in the house.
Printer Module Control the printer remotely. At power up, the printer draws so much current, that the SSR did not survive. Living Testing At power up, the printer draws so much current, that the SSR did not survive.
RPi Domoticz Controller Raspberry Pi, with Domoticz Living Working Working good.
Serial Gateway The gateway between the NRF24L01+ network and the Controller. Used medium: the serial bus (USB) Living Working, Retired Initially I tried this, but switched to a Ethernet gateway when switching to the NAS Domoticz.
Temperature Humidity Sensor A sensor for temperature and humidity. Outside Working, Destroyed It worked, but fell and broke.
Window Open Sensor A battery powered sensor to detect an open window (or door). Bathroom, Living, Veranda Working Have one of these at most windows in the house. Expensive (due to the Sensebender) but nice.
