I'm trying to build a solar system around an EasySolar-II GX 24/3000 and I'd like to attach a USB Bluetooth dongle to it, like TP-LINK UB5A, or something similar.
I need this for connecting to Ruuvi temperature sensors and Mopeka tank level sensors and the internal GX module of the EasySolar does not have BT.
The ultimate goal ofcourse is to have all the information nicely available in VRM.
Anyone tried or knows if this can be done?
Can Ruuvi, SmartShunt and MPPT controllers connect at the sametime to my cerbo on ve.bus and bluetooth (Ruuvi) as well as with Global link 520 via bluetooth? thanks
Since setting up Ruuvi tags in my camper, I noticed that VRM always seems to be displaying old data. Today the data displays as "last updated 3 days ago". I've changed the Ruuvi tag settings to "Keep the connection" and updated each tag to the latest firmware but still, the data is never current in VRM. I can open the RuuviStation app on my phone and get a real-time readout on all the sensors without any issues. Checking the tags with the Ruuvi app doesn't cause VRM to update either. I'm not sure how VRM decides to update the numbers, or if it's the tags themselves that are supposed to be sending the data. Anyone else seeing this issue?
I just installed some Ruuvi temperature sensors and I am looking for a way to name them with sensible names. I searched through Remote Console (firmWare 2.92) where I see the sensors in I/O section, but there you can only change the type. And cannot change the names on the VRM Portal device list. I see answers to this question with screenshots of older firmware (2.60, for instance) - so does the feature just disappear with newer versions?
Can you automate some things on ESII with Ruuvi sensors, like start AC OUT 2 depending on temperature (for a fan or heater), lower charging current below 5C or something similar?
Hi Victron Community
I‘m using a CCGX and I like to add some Ruuvi Temperature sensors. Since the CCGX has no bluetooth I‘m wondering, if it is possible to add them via adding a bluetooth dongle?
I want to connect a sensor to the gas tank of my generator so that the gas level of my generator will show up on the VRM via my Cerbo GX. Can anyone please advise me as to who to do that?
I connected some Ruuvi Tags a while ago. Since today they are missing in Cerbo GX. In Bluetooth Sensors menu no sensor could be found. The sensors works with my smartphone. Any tips for that?
Just thought I'd throw this out there, with the Ruuvi temperature and humidity sensors I'm wondering if Victron have any more Bluetooth devices on their radar to add support for.
I had bumped into two Bluetooth sensors that prompted this question:
1. Bluetooth Tyre Pressure Monitoring
2. Bluetooth Gas Bottle Monitoring
(I didn't link to specific devices but there are multiple brands and devices available in the market for both these devices)
It would be great to find reliable devices and add support for these for 4wds & RVs.
Anyone else have suggestions for other bluetooth devices that would be nice to haves?
Updated from v2.84 today to v2.86 and lost all Ruuvi sensors. Rolling back doesn't restore them. Cannot add new Ruuvi sensors either as they are not "seen" by the Cerbo.
It seems that bluetooth not working on this version, and slightly worrying that rolling back doesn't fix the problem. I notice multiple other posts from users reporting similar issues when updating.
If there is not an update planned to fix this soon could someone explain what I need to do to reset the bluetooth adaptor (perhaps using command line)? Thanks
I have a Ruuvi tag attached to a VenusGX. In the VRM portal I can read both temp and humidity but when I request data via VRM API I cannot find any data for the humidity. Temp is however OK.
I am really pleased with the the Victron support for the Ruuvi tags. I'm using them on three different installations and they are working well on each one.
I have a persistent three month old bug on one installation that I'm unable to clear up. I'm unable to remove an old Ruuvi tag that I relocated to another installation.
I've disabled the Ruuvi tag in my Cerbo GX and removed it from the device list in VRM but it is still present in the panel. I've reset Bluetooth and restarted the Cerbo GX. I'm running the latest firmware. (version 2.82-large-30). What else might be required to remove it from the VRM panel?
Thank you for your help.
We just installed some Ruuvi Tag temperature sensors in our DC Fridge/Freezer in our RV. In the Ruuvi App, you can manually "adjust" the temperature. For example, the fridge reports 45 degrees, when it is actually 35 degrees. So, in the app, you tell it to be -10 degrees from the reported temperature.
However, the "adjusted" temperature does not get reported to the VRM portal. It shows up as the 45 degrees. Is there a way to do this temperature adjustment for the VRM portal also?
I have add 3 Ruuvi to my boat system. I updated their software and added a Bluetooth dongle. I can see the current temp No problem.
I then setup a custom widget graph of temp vs time. Initially it worked but no the graph is blank and says “no data”
I've just added my first Ruuvi tag sensor to my Cerbo GX running 2.84. It is reporting temperature, pressure and humidity to VRM as expected. I am trying to query the data via Modbus/TCP and am only able to query the temperature. I've done some digging, and all the values are available via dbus. However via modbus, only addresses 3300-3305 are available. 3306, 3307 and 3308 all return an error.
Am I doing something wrong or have I run into a bug?
Thanks in advance.
