    Hi,

    i tried putting mcsTasmota on my magichome devices and it kept crashing, is there a possibility that i could get a copy of the precompiled code for arduino?

    Cheers Raptor

    I have only used the mcsTasmota firmware for SonOff Itead devices. You are the first using it for Arduino devices. Are you upgrading via WiFi or JTAG?

    ITead devices used so far are ==> SonOff basic WiFi and SonOff SV's

    RGB controllers ==> H801 (big board) and now testing Magic Home controllers which are tiny.

    Via WiFi you have to upgrade twice as the firmware is over 500k. Such that you upload a base first less than 500k then regular firmware over 500k.

    That said I switched here to using Espurna firmware for my Magic Home controller. I am adding John's tweaked Espurna firmware for use with a digital on and off pot here and only for single channel LED's in kitchen.

    It works fine with Michael's mcsMQTT plugin. What is nice about the ESPurna firmware is that the Home Assitant pieces generate the mosquitto reads that you can see in mcsMQTT.

      The latest source code for mcsTasmota is at http://mcsSprinklers.com/mcsTasmota_Source_5_9_13i.zip

      I did a quick search on the topic and found https://github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota/issues/1867. It may give you some leads.

      I do agree with Pete that ESPurna looks to be better tuned for LED controller than Tasmota. They both speak MQTT so looks the same to HS/mcsMQTT.

        Yeah here I was using PlatformIO / Visual Studio Code just for the Tasmota source files. Learning mode still just replicated the Espurna source files over to my configuration.

        Running this on my Lenova laptop Ubuntu 18.04 set up. Very fast and works well. Changed all laptops here and desktops in office to dual boot Ubuntu 18.04, Windows 10 and Windows 2016 server.

        Here now can now see what modifications I need to do to utilize DS18B20 sensors on GPIO 14 and DHT combo sensors on GPIO 4 (or another pin).

        John has modified the Espurna RGB firmware to work with a digital on off pot.

        #ifndef DHT_PIN

        #endif

        #ifndef DHT_TYPE
        #define DHT_TYPE DHT_CHIP_DHT22
        #endif

        The above will let me assign GPIO pin #14 to the DS18B20's and GPIO #XX to the DHT22.

        Using Espurna on cold boot creates a WAP then runs a script to change password and configuration like adding WAPs, Static IP et al.

        I use the Espurna Home Assistant tab HA MQTT piece to for Michael's mcsMQTT stuff to match stuff while searching. Easy peasy.

          thanks, i have mine working with tasmota, i was hoping to use the msctasmota to get it to work with alexa and the colour mapping.

            The source file I modified for Alex/HUE is at C:\Users\Dell\.platformio\packages\framework-arduinoespressif8266\libraries\ESP8266WebServer\src on my computer and is attached.

              I programmed a MagicHome controller (the $3 one in Kitchen light thread) with version 5.9.13i of mcsTasmota. Setup for HUE control and Alexa was able to discover and control it with ON/OFF commands with Alexa. When I try things like "turn LED green", then Alexa respons that the device is "out of range for LED green". I will play a little longer, but dinner time now.
