Check all details on how to setup a smart house automation system using the mFi.
Some good tips are mentioned in this video
Cheking the Door-Bell Connecting the current sensor to the door bell transformer. If somebody presses the door bell, the current will flow and the mFi will detect it. This can send a message by email or SMS or serve as a trigger for some other appliances.
Garage Door Automation Connecting the mFi to the garage door opening system: when there is a movement in side the garage in between a certain time in the morning, it means we are to leave the garage, the door will open automatically. The door will close when no more movement is detected.
The RT-BMS is in Stand-by model. By powering the “System Switch ON” (the F connector), the RT-BMS turns on into the operation mode. The Master unit displays the lowest (d) and highest (c) voltage of the battery pack. (In the video the values are: c 3.29V, d 3.26V). The signal lights turn on for 1 second to verify the bulbs are functional. The signal lights are as follow: blue color - connected to “A3” for Error, yellow color - connected to “A4” for Fuel Reserve (Low Capacity). Onboard LEDs show the connection of the power disconnecting switches: LED B3 - Main Current (for motor controller), LED B5 - Main Charging, LED B6 - High-Speed Charging.
When the power source is connected, the RT-BMS Master units performs the power-up sequence. During the power-up sequence the RT-BMS Master unit checks all the possible modules addressing, counting from 000 to 064, 128 or 192. (In this demo it is 128). Then it displays the total number of modules found. (In this demo it is 004). After the power-up is finished the RT-BMS Master unit turns off into the Stand-by mode. The Stand-by mode is controlled by the “System switch On/OFF” - the F connector.
Quoting: This week we digress a bit from vehicle issues and take a look at the progression of LiFePo4 cell offerings over the past two years. We also do some full 1C discharge and charge tests on the cells. See more here.
