Appreciate for the question.
If you have the the old installation directory saved, we can retive it from there. If the old installation directory has been deleted while uninstallation we can not retrive the ID from the desktop app. Thank you.
OK but you should probably think of a way to preserve the controller IDs across app upgrade. I deleted the old app per the instructions before loading the new one. For now I guess there aren’t a lot of EzloPi users burning through controller ID numbers. Since the old controller ID still show in my Ezlo account there would seem to be a way for the EzloPi configuration app to retrieve those from the web site once you login successfully.
Anyway I have created a new EzloPi but some issues for sure:
I couldn’t figure out the BLE feature. I thought I’d be able to use my iPhone to set up WiFi. No luck. Might be operator error as there are no instructions or maybe it doesn’t work.
I configured one digital output device and a switch input associated with it. I connected a relay and switch to the ESP32/EzloPi and the local switch toggles the relay so I know the configuration got saved in the ESP32 properly. Unfortunately no devices show for this controller on both the iOS app and Ezlogic.mios.com . Thats pretty basic functionality and failing straight away. I had more success with 1.3.4
This is only applicable to ESP32 generic boards as it has an internal hall effect sensor. The user has to make sure not to connect any peripherals on GPIO 36 and 39 of ESP32 or configure those GPIOs as hall sensor values are read from these pins. Therefore, providing GPIO to the door sensor is not required. Likewise, a magnet has to be attached to the door in such a way that upon closing the door the magnet stays right over the ESP32 chip which will be detected and give the information.
OK I wave a magnet over the ESP32 shell and the switch state toggles. I guess I didn’t read in the release notes or other documentation that a door sensor was implemented using the internal Hall Effect sensor.
That said it seems a very sensitive to proximity and location of the magnet so I am not sure how practical it is. Furthermore alarm system magnet/reed switches are so inexpensive and highly reliable they seem a better option for a door switch closure. A simple digital input with a pull-up resistor and a switch closure to ground.
When I configure a EzloPi for a digital input the config is successfully saved by the EzloPi config app to the ESP32 but the input device never shows in the dashboard at ezlogic.mios.com . I checked on the iOS app for the digital input device, but as previously stated, none of the configured devices show up on the iOS app despite some of them showing on the Ezlogic.mios.com dashboard.
I also tried to create an analog input as well. Same situation as the digital input. It creates on EzloPi esp32 but never appears in ezlogic.mios.com dashboard. Tried two browsers and got same result (firefox and chrome).
