Raspberry pi in the utility closet gathering temperature readings / 2021-06-18

2021-06-18 Raspberry pi in the utility closet gathering temperature readings 1 month ago
After reinstalling the Raspberry Pi in the utility closet so it can run newer software I did the steps to install zigbee2mqtt on it which was quite possible this time.

I migrated the settings and the database from my first run of zigbee2mqtt on a linux laptop and on the first try no communication started with the zigbee dongle.

On the second try (different usb port) things started working. The zigbee dongle is currently plugged directly into the Raspberry and as several manuals say this is not an ideal configuration. Those manuals are right: suddenly the sensor about 4 meters away isn't seen. I will need to improve the situation and move the dongle or its antenna to a better location.
