Hello Grant, loving the app more every day ! Really incredible what you’ve created.
Suggestion, and I think maybe someone had mentioned, but would it be possible for the hub offline message to not immediately display? Maybe load a cached page of the last dashboard in use, while the app connects in the background, and if no response in say 2000ms(maybe even adjustable ms delay for people with crappy wifi?) from DNS or makerapi, then display hub offline?
Maybe even an option for a configurable background sync, and excepting the app from samsung’s powersaving app-sleep feature? I know wyzecam does it with their app to prevent missed notifications, as the sleeping wyze app was missing notifications and they advise to to change the phone’s settings to except the wyzeapp from sleep or deep sleep.
Even if zero changes are made, this is hands down the best dashboard app. Love the functionality and appearance options. Thank You
Whilst we’re on the topic of “Hub Offline” more generally, could we possibly get a button of some kind on that screen marked “Retry” or better still, “Connect”?
For instance, if I leave HV open while I perform a f/w update on my HE, this will naturally cause HUB OFFLINE to show up. That leaves me (or worse, a less knowledge household member) having to scramble to figure out how to reconnect. I know it’s just Menu > Click Hub Offline, but will they?
Easier if it’s just a button right in front of them.
Okay, sorry, the auto-reconnect is for transient changes in network connectivity - if you go offline for a long period of time (with HV active) then after 3 attempts, it will no longer retry (assuming you’re offline for good). In which case, yes, you need to click the Menu > Click Hub Offline for the reconnect to occur again. Post a roadmap item and if it gets votes then it will be done.
If HV was able to monitor the systemStart event then it wouldn’t need to monitor it. Think about it.
