Garadget status not updating after very long uptime


Im having a very strange issue. My configuration is 2x gardaget’s configured in local mode only with MQTT/HomeAssistant.

If the garadget’s have been on for a very long time +90 days, I have a strange issue. The MQTT status does not update. However the garadget is fine in terms of sending commands to it via MQTT.

I was hoping to find out if there is a way to remotely reboot the devices via MQTT? Happily put in a simple automation rule to reboot it weekly.

I should note this is a very rare issue and I only notice it a 2-4 times a year, So probably not worth fixing or troubleshooting. Easier to reboot it regularly if its possible.


The only MQTT commands available are those documented in this post:

It would be fairly trivial to add a support reboot command, and being open source I welcome the forks and pull requests in the code repository.
