Problem downloading json file for Boards Manager in Arduino IDE

I had to reinstall all my software on my PC due to a re-installation of Windows. Trying to get the Arduino IDE up and running again so I can go back to work on my devices, and I find I can't install the Z-Uno2 board file in IDE version 2.3.2 or 1.8.19. Added the URL to the Additional Boards Manager ...

Re: Fluid pressure sensor

Depending on the pressure range you wish to measure, there are a number of devices available that provide a 0.5V - 4.5 VDC analog signal for water pressure. I found a couple from DigiKey: a) Seeed Technology part number 1597-1515-ND for about $20 CDN that will measure 0-1200 kPa, and b) Honeywell Se...

Re: Sensor Multilevel Scale addition?

Am I reading this correctly, then - there is NO way for a user to add or modify the sensor types or scales used in the Zuno?

Re: Sensor Multilevel Scale addition?

Thank you for the information. In my case, I wanted not only the rain rate (mm per hour), but the accumulated rainfall in mm. The total rainfall in a given hour is in fact more useful that a rain rate, in that I can use it to decide if the garden has had enough rain in the past 8 hours, or do I need...

Sensor Multilevel Scale addition?

I'm building a Rain Gauge that will accumulate pulses from a "tipping bucket". I want to transmit analog values that will contain total rainfall in the current hour, previous hour, current day, and previous day, in units of "mm". Where are the Scale Unit definitions held?, and is...

Re: Interrupts example

When I use the "attachInterrupt(digitalPinToInterrupt..." syntax with any digital pin, I get a compile error that says, "'digitalPinToInterrupt' was not declared in this scope". Is this functionality working?

Re: Is there a Library available for using a Real Time Clock shield

Thanks for the reply and suggestion! I would prefer to use a dedicated RTC module, because it will retain its settings and keep time even if there is a power interruption. I also believe that the RTC modules will be slightly more accurate, although for the purposes of this application, extreme accur...

Re: ZUNO cannot talk to DS1307

Note that the example sketch I am trying to run (Ds1307Rtc) came directly from the "Examples" folder when I specified the board as
"Z-Wave>ME Z-Uno2 Beta". I made no modifications to it at all.
