I am successfully running xdrip-js-logger as my collector for my openAPS Edison rig and loving it so far! Setup is Edison running logger, mm722 pump, and Dexcom g5 transmitter.
However, I am having trouble with setting up my xdrip+ watch app on my LG G Android Wear Watch to receive my BGs directly from the rig. Does anyone have any recommendations for how to configure the collector setup in the xdrip+ android app. It is installed on my tablet and its paired watch, but I can't seam to figure out the next steps..
Any ideas or does anyone have experience with this?
@jonny772 aha, that project looks ace -- except it doesnt seem to actually upload the bg to nightscout?
And yes - thanks for pointing out I need a pi0W
How do you mean mirror the bluetooth?
It wouldnt be hard for me to write the integration to sync up to nightscout! I wonder what nightscout does if it gets 2 readings which are the same?
@renegadeandy Also in terms of extra bits you will need an antenna which is either a bit of wire, a coil (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eightwood-Helical-Control-Homematic-Wireless-Antenna/dp/B07L5SNC9T/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=868+antenna+solder&qid=1557314052&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull) or add a connector for one ( https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-ufl-smt-antenna-connector )
you will also need some form of battery. A USB battery phone charger would work or something like this (https://thepihut.com/products/lipo-shim ) - i'm sure better options are available as the lipo shim doesn't have an included charging circuit
@jonny772 I like the idea of the home base stattion. I may well purchase the Pi0W and use that as my home base.
What does your base station rig look like?
I see, so you would plug that on top of this https://thepihut.com/products/raspberry-pi-zero-w?variant=547421782033&gclid=CjwKCAjw_MnmBRAoEiwAPRRWWw9mvlHLZfZfTGwuOq_lHdTRHjP0oX4dAMqS0PkQlU5yu4RIkvdvpxoCI7gQAvD_BwE
And use the bonnet, instead of this : https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-rfm69hcw-transceiver-radio-breakout-868-or-915-mhz?variant=27740302289&gclid=CjwKCAjw_MnmBRAoEiwAPRRWW7YDqc6efRyIChnG7ib_59-vcSI_9qv6Li3a30cdyPDP5CCUlG68qhoCE4sQAvD_BwE
so I am new to the Pis, I have an old one but havent really worked on them before.
If I went ahead and got this for the quick short term : https://thepihut.com/products/adafruit-rfm69hcw-transceiver-radio-breakout-868-or-915-mhz?variant=27740302289&gclid=CjwKCAjw_MnmBRAoEiwAPRRWW7YDqc6efRyIChnG7ib_59-vcSI_9qv6Li3a30cdyPDP5CCUlG68qhoCE4sQAvD_BwE
How do I know which pins to hook it up to the board (I would probably just use a bit of solder
@jonny772 @cluckj is this the right connector I need for an antennae for my board
or there is a 0.8mm version? Will this solder onto the rfm69hcw i list below? I don't know if the sizes would fit?
Also - which screw in antennae would I buy for the smb connector? Would one of my spare wifi router antennae work?
