How to use "mysensors.py", "myprogram.py", and "myoutput.py"

Hi Karl,

I had posted an earlier question regarding a new project I am working on to automate my dust collection in my woodshop. It was a pretty dense post and it didn't get much traction, so I decided to dive in and see if I can figure out a good path forward. I am at the point of needing to use some of the custom sensors/programs that I think is the point of the mysensors.py, myprogram.py, and myoutput.py. After reading many many posts and google searching on those keywords, I am not fully understanding how the pieces fit together for these features. In addition, when I enable the mysensors.py by renaming the file on the rPI I am getting the error below.

So my ask would is....Can you provide a more detailed explanation of each of these three custom code devices and actually how to use them? I am not able to piece together from the sparse posts on the subject. For instance, do I edit a file on the MAC indigo server or do I edit a file on the rPI? On the rPI I am seeing a file named myprogram.py that already exists, however, in the same pibeacon directory on the rPI I see a file named "RenameMeTo_myprogram.py". Am I supposed to overwrite the existing file? I am also seeing a syntax error on the mysensors.py file on line 12. It is importing the sys namespace and the next line of code is calling isys.

Thanks for the clarity, looking forward to getting up to speed on it.

Joel

Will write something up. You are the first to try it.

As for air quality / dust particles there is a sensor that is supported.

Thanks for the reply Karl. Looking at your reply now, just got back from a 2 week trip to Ireland with the family, sorry for the delay in saying thanks!! Side note, the title of the post you created has a typo, it contains an O in the title. poiBeacon instead of piBeacon.

This worked great and got me up and running with custom writing sensor code for the rPi.

Thanks

I guess you are the first to actually use it ..

coming up:
== lightning detector .. should detect up to 20km away .. waiting for a thunderstorm to test
== better CO2 sensor (MH-Z19)
