I’m new to OMG and MQTT, and looking for some help.
My goal is to switch on/off my KaKu (“klikaanklikuit”) lights. I have Domoticz running on a Rpi (mostly with z-wave) devices.
I bought the following hardware:
As a docker container I installed mosquitto https://hub.docker.com/_/eclipse-mosquitto on my proxmox host.
I flashed the NodeMCU with this .bin file:
nodemcuv2-rf2-firmware.bin —> https://github.com/1technophile/OpenMQTTGateway/releases/download/v0.9.5/nodemcuv2-rf2-firmware.bin
- Is that correct? I see a lot of files and a’m not sure if I have the right one.
I also installed MQTT-explorer on my windows machine. When I connect to mosquitto I see the OpenMQTTGateway but no data inbound when I press a button on the KiKa-remote.
How can I troubleshoot the mosquitto - NodeMCU connection?
I read about changing the config_RF.h, but how/where? I guess it is on the NodeMCU, but I only have a .bin file.
“If the gateway works only when serial monitor is connected don’t use D3 use D2 instead (gpio 4) and modify config_RF.h accordingly.”
- What is a serial monitor?
I hope somebody can help me.
