How to detect lockups using the Arduino watchdog

How to detect lockups using the Arduino watchdog | Home Automation | Scoop.it

If an Arduino program crashes in the forest, will it make a sound? Unfortunately not. No blue screen of death, nor jarring squawk will alert you to the program’s doom. It will typically just quietly and unobtrusively stop running whatever robotkeypad or front door it is supposed to be looking after. In this article, I’ll show you how to use the watchdog timer to help track down the bug causing the lockup. But first, there’s a quick review of the watchdog timer itself for those new to the game.

Enhanced NRF24L01 radio with a DIY Dipole Antenna modification

Enhanced NRF24L01 radio with a DIY Dipole Antenna modification | Home Automation | Scoop.it

The situation was that I was only able to transmit and receive through 2 or 3 walls with a distance of about 50 feet, using standard nRF24L01+ modules. This was insufficient for my intended use. I had earlier tried adding recommended capacitors, but for me and my hardware got very little to no improvement. So, please ignore them in the photos.For my remote sensors I did not want the bulk of a unit like a nRF24L01+PA+LNA with a SMA Mount and exterior antenna. So I created this modified module.With this modified RF24 module I could go through four walls with a distance of about 100 feet.This module should also nearly double the distance over a standard nRF24 module when used with line of sight applications; like RF planes, quad-coppers, cars and boats (100s of meters).
