No data on emonTHs

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc9b0893da8>

I’ve just got my 3 emonTHs, and put batteries in them. But I don’t see any data for them on the inputs page on my emonPi. I see ‘emonth6’ appear, just after that send data I assume, but it just has ‘rssi’ and no temp, humidity and battery level data. Then when the emonth7 sends, the emonth6 input goes and emonth7 appears. Then the same for emonth8. But all have just ‘rssi’ and no other data.

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?!

Pease run emoniupdate from local Emoncms to make sure you have the latest emonPi firmware (Setup > Admin > emonpiupdate).

Does the LED on the emonTH light up when you insert the batteries? Are these the new emonTH V2 with the si7021 sensors instead of DHT22?

Are the DIP switches differently on each emonTH to set different RF node ID’s?

Done - but nothing needed updating and hasn’t affected anything - still not working.

Yep. Green light comes on, then goes off.

Yep.

Oh, weird?! It’s now working?! I’ll keep monitoring…

that’s strange, let me know if you have any further issues.

I got similar problem, I trying but two new emonTh to my system,
first one the LED don’t light :frowning:
but the second one LED works and from time to time shows new emonth8 in system, but only rssi, and disappears again.
When look from EmohHub log , then there is all parameters is shown like in emonth7 and emonth5 which already works in system like must work.

Any ideas ?

emnPi firmware updated just a two days ago.

If the LED on the emonTH does not light at all this could indicate a hardware failure. The LED should light for a few seconds when the batteries are inserted. Can you confirm the LED on the emonTH does not light at all even with fresh batteries?

Do all the battery terminal contacts look ok?

can you post some emonhub.log?
It sounds like 2 issues at play

  1. weak signal or interference causing intermittent reception
  2. newly added device not showing in emoncms via mqtt input

2 might be overcome with a reboot (known bug) and to debug 1 there may be useful info in the emonhub.log

Yes I confirm, that the LED light does nothing at all - I got from emon.Shop this some days ago - sticker “Func Pass” on it :wink:

But I got two of them, and second one lights ok and I see the information from emonHub log - but I don’t see this from “inputs” list

here some of log
emonth8 is this what don’t show’s on input list

This section shows the emonth8 being published to MQTT, if it isn’t showing in emoncms it is the emoncms’s mqtt_input thats not subscribing or not procesing that data. I have seen this and found a reboot overcome the issue, it may even be possible to restart the mqtt_input service or some other service rather than reboot, but I cannot confirm that to be the case. Have you tried a reboot?

An rssi of -48 should be strong enough so once you have the input visible in emoncms check the “updated” column, it should update every 60secs, give or take.

I tried - update what doing reboot to system, and that’s was helpful.
emonTH8 appeared to input list, and all works.
thanks

Was there any additional diagnosis on what caused emoncms not to pick up these messages?

I just experienced the same issue. Two new EmonTH devices, both powered up and publishing to MQTT. I changed the nodenames in emonhub.conf, restarted the emonhub service, and confirmed that the messages were coming in and getting published to the proper topics in MQTT. Using mosquitto_sub, I subscribed to my emon/emonth1/# and emon/emonth2/# topics and saw data values come across, yet emoncms showed only a single rssi input and only that for one of my two devices (the second one never appeared at all). A full restart cleared things up, but that’s an awfully heavy hammer.

I’ve published all kinds of new inputs to this instance before with the straight input API, so I wonder if there’s an edge case in the phpmqtt_input script that needs squashing.

This is a long standing issue that hasn’t yet been addressed.

See the “Newly created inputs not appearing in emonCMS via MQTT” thread from around post 10/27.

The issue has been confirmed to only exist within emoncms MQTT implementation, all data can always be seen via mosquitto_sub which points to either the mqtt_service or more likely phpmqtt_input.php.

Agreed, but to date the only sure advice to overcome what has sadly become “expected behaviour” when adding new nodes on an emonPi/emonSD, is to reboot

However, in the “MQTT Strangeness” thread @TrystanLea confirms he had no issue having “only just started the mqtt service script” so it maybe that the emonPi doesn’t need a full reboot, I haven’t tested this theory yet.

As for restarting emonHub, that shouldn’t be necessary, emonhub was written to run continuously, it shouldn’t ever need restarting unless a revised version is installed/updated etc. All settings should be picked up during normal running.
