MySensors Serial Gateway not coming online in OH2


(Dave Bagioni) #1

Greetings All.
I have hit a wall here. I am setting up openhab2 on my Ubuntu box. Im running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, with Openhab 2 stable release installed.

I can get every other thing configured and running smoothly EXCEPT for this serial gateway.

My gateway is an Arduino Uno, flashed with the lastest stable MySensors library and serial gateway sketch. When its connected to the box via USB it comes up as /dev/ttyAMC0, and Im able to see it running via serial monitors. But when I go into openhab to add it the gateway still shows up as offline. I’ve already added openhab to ‘dialout’ and ‘tty’ groups and made the java exceptions changes and enabled the serial transport via karaf console as noted in the installation instructions.

The only thing the logs are producing is a generic "unable to connect to serial port tty/ACM0 message.

Im at a total loss here.


(Harry) #2

Use the correct name. ttyAMC0 ist not tty/ACM0.
Please post your definition.


(Dave Bagioni) #3

Sorry they are both /dev/ttyACM0


(Josar) #4

@Dbagioni

I think @hr3 meant that tty/ACM0 is not /ttyACM0. But I hope this is a typo when posting and not configured like this in your item as port.

  1. Did you configure udev rules for the device? And gave it a distinct name? E.g. /ttyUno? And use this as port? See the docs.

https://docs.openhab.org/addons/bindings/serial1/readme.html

  1. Post your Item definition.
  2. Post the line added to /etc/default/openhab2 for the OPENHAB_JAVA_OPTS. Did you reboot after changing the Java Options?
  3. Post what you see after typing in the commandline. With the Uno plugged-in.
lsusb
  1. Post
ls -al /dev/

Ok still loosing my mind over here…First note Im not a software guy, im a hardware guy…soldering irons and oscilloscopes is where Im most comfortable.

So in response to your inquires.

1 - Yes I tried…but I cant find the “start.sh” that is mentioned and am not sure what numbers they are looking for.

SUBSYSTEM==“tty”, ATTRS{idVendor}==“0403”, ATTRS{idProduct}==“6001”, ATTRS{serial}==“AE01F0PD”, SYMLINK+=“ttyMySensors”

when I look at the USB devices this is the line Im seeing.

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 2341:0043 Arduino SA Uno R3 (CDC ACM)

2 - I did not create an “item” but am not sure what to do with that beyond that because in my previous build the gateway was ‘self-discovered’ in the paperUI. Basically I turned it on and it popped up in the in box, clicked on it and i was happily running without issue.

3- Yes I did…rebooted (now more times than I can count).

JAVA OPTIONS

Additional options for the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.

These will be appended to the execution of the openHAB Java runtime in front$

A couple of independent examples:

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyAMA0"

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyS0:/dev/tt$

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Djna.library.path=/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ -Duser.timez$

EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyACM0"

Thats what I have.

And to add to my frustration, I can see and interact with the gateway via Arduino Serial Monitor. But i cant copy that out for some reason…but it boots up normally and interfaces with devices as it should.

@Dbagioni

  1. when you use systemctl start openhab.service then i think your start.sh should be /etc/default/openhab2 this is where you should add EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyAMA0:/dev/ttyACM0"

As your post is not right formatted i im not sure but i think you have it there. Have a look here for more information about formatting posts.

Maybe just check in

  1. Did you install the binding? I am not sure but the name serial1 suggests that it is a OpenHAB1 binding. Maybe you need to add legacy binding support. But i think not as the documentation does not list it as legacy.

  2. List the groups of your openhab, maybe it is not in dialout. I know you said it should be. I just try to find the problem.

sudo -u openhab groups
  1. Try to use the serial connection as openhab
sudo -u openhab <SerialTerminalConnection>
  1. Maybe try to define a Item
String UnoItem { serial="/dev/ttyACM0@<baudrate>" } 

And maybe you can find something in teh logs?


(Dave Bagioni) #7

My start.sh file (i foudn it I think) is actually in /usr/share/openhab2. But it is literally 4 lines. the execute line reads.

exec “${DIRNAME}/runtime/bin/karaf” “${@}”

The file it references is pretty well buried in the runtime directory. Its a bunch of greek to me. It is about 150 lines or so.

  1. I have 2 bindings…the latest mysensors is 2.3.0 which I can get to run right. So I downgraded and manually installed 2.2.0 which runs perfectly on my other OH server.

  2. “openhab tty dialout david” is the output when I enter the group listing.

  3. Not to sure how to do that…I keep getting errors. “command not valid”

And I do have an item made for the gateway.
String UnoGateway { serial="/dev/ttyACM0@<115200>" }

Still pluggin on this one.


(Josar) #8

remove the brackets


(Josar) #9

@Dbagioni my /etc/init.d/openhab2 contains

...
  
# Read configuration variable file if it is present
if [ -r /etc/default/openhab2 ]; then
  . /etc/default/openhab2

...

and /etc/default/openhab2 has this.

## Additional options for the JAVA_OPTS environment variable.
## These will be appended to the execution of the openHAB Java runtime in front of a$

## A couple of independent examples:
##   EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyAMA0"
##   EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyS0:/dev/ttyS2:/$
##   EXTRA_JAVA_OPTS="-Djna.library.path=/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ -Duser.timezone=E$

Ok…progress has been made. I now have a serial gateway online and mysensors is back finding nodes like a fat kid in a cupcake shop. Buuuuuutttttt when the gateway goes idle it is going ofline and I have to reboot the box?

In conjuction with the item placed in the item file I managed to locate the file that specifically deals with java setting its environment and default ports. It resides in usr/share.openhab2/runtime/bin, it is called setenv, there is a section called “set JAVA options”

export JAVA_OPTS="${JAVA_OPTS}
-Dopenhab.home=${OPENHAB_HOME}
-Dopenhab.conf=${OPENHAB_CONF}
-Dopenhab.runtime=${OPENHAB_RUNTIME}
-Dopenhab.userdata=${OPENHAB_USERDATA}
-Dopenhab.logdir=${OPENHAB_LOGDIR}
-Dfelix.cm.dir=${OPENHAB_USERDATA}/config
-Djetty.host=${HTTP_ADDRESS}
-Djetty.http.compliance=RFC2616
-Dorg.ops4j.pax.web.listening.addresses=${HTTP_ADDRESS}
-Dorg.osgi.service.http.port=${HTTP_PORT}
-Dorg.osgi.service.http.port.secure=${HTTPS_PORT}
-Dgnu.io.rxtx.SerialPorts=/dev/ttyACM0"

I added the last line, just the same as in the /etc/default/openhab2 file. After I did all of the above and rebooted the gateway began showing up as online. Now it keeps going “offline” despite being active.

First this is where the files should be.

https://docs.openhab.org/installation/linux.html#file-locations/

How did you install with apt-get or manual.
And second runtime folder content changes are not permanent.

You say you have no /etc/default/openhab2 so i assume you installed manually. So this files should be of interrest.

/etc/init.d/openhab 
/usr/share/openhab/bin/openhab.sh

I installed via apt-get.

I have the /etc/default/openhab2 files and I added the JAVA information to them as well as the other file.

What should I look for in the init.d files?

if you installed wtih apt-get ony the /etc/default/openhab2 should be of concern to add EXTRA_JAVA_OPTSand then a reboot.
