OpenGarage Forums OpenGarage Firmware Second Sensor for One Door 2 Car Reply To: Second Sensor for One Door 2 Car



Sorry took so long, setting up the home network. Never had access to a public IP before, I was behind 2 or 3 different NAT with the hotspot.
Anyway, tried the 3 wire again. Not sure what I am missing, maybe a second set of eyes.

So I cut the read_distance and read_distance_once straight from the OG. Then I call the read_distance from the loop. One sensor.
If I wired it for 4 wires I pass the correct PIN_TRIG/PIN_ECHO. If I wired it for 3 wires then I pass the same pin (PIN_TRIG/PIN_TRIG).
You can see where I can comment/uncomment to switch back and forth. Three wire gives me all zeros. It’s almost like the pin mode is not switching. I am linking to some pictures, but I don’t know if they are good enough to help.
Do you have something you could try and see if you get same results? Not sure if it matters, I am using a NodeMCU V3.
