Re: Multiple Ultrasonic Sensors

Ok actually, there seems to be a better way (I'm just reading through the getting started guide, so just discovered this way). How's this? ZUNO_SETUP_CHANNELS( ZUNO_SENSOR_BINARY_GENERAL_PURPOSE(getterMe), ZUNO_SENSOR_BINARY_GENERAL_PURPOSE(getterWife) ); int compare_distance = 3000; // this is the ...

Re: Help with a (probably very easy) button sketch!

@Geirbakke

Just a quick addition, I assume the functions in your code should be getterBTN1 and getterBTN2.

Multiple Ultrasonic Sensors

Hi, I'm new to Z-Wave, Z-Uno, and Arduino in general. I'm still waiting for Z-Uno to be available in the US, but once it does, I want to make a sensor that knows when me or my wife is home. After thinking through a bunch of ways to do this, none of which are reliable enough and automatic (my wife wo...

Re: Cheap "Repeater" Device

Also, there are cheap "add-on" switches for regular Z-Wave switches. I know those wont control a load by themselves, but do they at least repeat a signal? If so, then I can just buy those and place them in a few places around the house.

Cheap "Repeater" Device

I'm looking for something that I could buy a few of and place them around the house to increase Z-Wave coverage. I currently only have the hub and one sensor, but the location where I've put them they do not reach each other. Plus when I get more devices, I'll need more coverage. I was thinking of j...

Re: Z-Wave Presence Sensor

@PoltoS
I haven't really looked at the Z-Uno board much (will definitely check it out when it releases in US). Can I wire two of the ultrasonic sensors to one Z-Uno? That way I would only need one board for both cars.

Re: Z-Wave Presence Sensor

@fez With your first option, it just knows when the door is closed and locked? That really doesn't tell me if I'm home or not. Second option could work, I'll look into that. Does it just send the controller a signal when it's within range or not within range? I don't want to have to add any steps to...
