Timed events, easier via Arduino?


#1

Im trying to set up a green house controller. I have a RPI3 and also Arduino Uno. I was able to quickly make up scheduled events for relays turning on and off lights. However if there is a power outage or RPI reset, the lights stay off until the next scheduled event. Also, seems the scheduler is not very reliable and there are lots of problems with it.

I was thinking to use a real time clock wired to my Arduino and code it to have relay on if the current time is between X and Z, also relay should be off if current time is outside X and Z.

I have a DHT22 wired to an Arduino, and would like to control fans/humidifiers depending on DHT22 measurements.

Is there a way to have the RPI to turn lights back on after a power outage? If not, can I have an input on Cayenne that will set a default on the Arduino? This way I can adjust lighting hours or humidity levels without uploading a new sketch

Hello,
Last State is developed right now by the Cayenne team and it will be available in the future.

You can try this trigger option, when raspberry goes online:

Also you can make a PYTHON file that @reset can make something :slight_smile:
