Cross-platform, completely new design, huge amount of new features!
All devices (nodes) communicate wirelessly with computer through the gateway.
The device does not have to be within range of the gateway, it can relay messages through other devices. Thus it allows communication over a long distance. The nodes can communicate with each other and interact.
MyNodes works using MySensors protocol.
All devices in the network are called Nodes.
Nodes connect to the gateway wirelessly.
You can connect to node some sensor or any device you would like to control.
To build a node, you need an Arduino board and NRF24L01+ module.
The node can run on batteries.
Build a node is very simple. Read more, how to build nodes.
The gateway is a separate Arduino that serves the network.
Using the gateway server receives messages from devices in the network.
The gateway can connect to the server via USB, LAN or WiFi.
Read more how to build the gateway.
On the computer with Windows or Linux, install the Web Controller,
which will communicates with the gateway via USB, LAN or WiFi.
For this purpose you can use any simple computer such as Raspberry Pi (worth $30).
Web Controller starts a web server on your computer that allows you to configure and control your devices via the Internet.
When you first launch the Web Controller, you will be prompted to go through a small setup wizard which will automatically configure everything you need.
Web Controller has a very easy to use visual editor. As soon as you power on your device, the Web Controller will automatically detect it, and your device appears in the editor.
You can add a virtual nodes in the editor, which are able to perform various functions. It can be mathematical nodes, logical, nodes which operate with text and files, perform various commands on the operating system, play audio, voice synthesizers and more. The program has more than a hundred nodes, and the list is constantly updated.
In the editor you can connect the nodes with virtual wires, as if you're dealing with real devices.
MyNodes allows you to create control panels in the browser using different user interface elements. Among these elements are buttons, sliders, input fields, various graphics, etc.
