On my reef-pi (using the ML hat, reef-pi version 3.3.1), I have my ATO on address 18, and it's working correctly. Last night I added a second float switch to the jumpers for address 27 and configured it as a second ATO in reef-pi, and set it to activate an unused outlet on my dj sr powerstrip just for testing, however it would not activate the outlet with the float switch in either the up or down position. I checked the float switch with my volt/ohm meter and it's working correctly. How can I check to see if reef-pi is seeing when the float switch opens/closes? If I go to the equipment tab in reef-pi, I can turn the outlet I was using for testing on/off, so I know that's setup correctly. Ultimately, I want to setup this float switch as a second ATO entry and have it alert me (no equipment control, just an alert) via email if my ato topoff tank is close to empty.
Got home from work, and doing some troubleshooting on this. Noticed my normal ATO is not working. Found this error on the configuration page for reefpi:
Failed to read ato sensor. Name:ATO1. Error:Inlet name: 'Item '2' does not exist in bucket 'inlets'' does not exist
I rebooted the reefpi, same error, and my ATO is not working. I removed the inlet and the ato config, rebooted and added them back, still not working. Why would it all of sudden stop reading the float switches?
