RAWv2 firmware movement counter is not counting


#1

I’m using 2.2.2 firmware to try the movement counter, but it randomly works, and most of the time doesn’t. I’m trying two different RuuviTag with the same result.

I was under the impression it would count any movement but maybe I was wrong.

Is there any requirement for the movement_counter to get incremented? Idk, maybe it needs to be in a specific axis to be counted…

According to the changelog I don’t think v2.3 will help, but… Anyone thinks it may help?

Cheers!

Hello,

Maybe the threshold isn’t sensitive enough for your use-case.
Could you give 2.4.1-alpha a try? https://github.com/ojousima/ruuvitag_fw/releases/tag/2.4.1-alpha

It uses 64 mg instead of 64 bits as a threshold and it should be more sensitive.
You’ll need to press “B” once to enter RAWv2 mode.

An alpha? uhm… I don’t know if I should…

Just kidding. I installed it and It does work!

BTW, my use case was the door. I put them on the door and kept opening and closing it non-stop and quite aggressively without changes in the movement_counter. Now a simple open-close movement will trigger it. Perfect! And I see it uses even less battery, win win.

Thanks a lot!

Happy to hear that it works for you :slight_smile:

We’ll move the 2.4.1 into beta next week, please let us know if you notice any issues.
