I just tried to setup and test my Garadget today. I found that when the power goes out or is disconnected, that the web app or the Android app won’t find it again until I either re-setup the Garadget or press the reset button. I read on other topics on the forum that it should automatically reconnect to the WiFi router.
After setting it up, it works correctly, but when I unplug it to simulate the power going out and plug it back in it:
turns on the white LED for half a second,
changes to a rapid flashing green LED for two seconds,
changes to a rapidly flashing cyan LED for half a second,
changes to a pulsing cyan LED - I read this means that it is connected to WiFi normally, but the web app says “timed out”, “offline __ s”, or “loading” and the Android app says offline __ s. They both have a red triangle with an exclamation mark in it. This lasted up to two hours before I re-set it up or pushed the reset button.
I have already tried:
Closing the app and relaunching it.
Logging out and back in on both the web app and Android app.
Checking under the settings section of the app - When it doesn’t see the Garadget, it says “last contact time since I unplugged it and plugged it back in ago”.
Waiting two hours for it to automatically reconnect after plugging it back in
Again, it does reconnect correctly when I re-set it up, or press the reset button, but I would rather not do this every time the power goes out.
Do you have any recommendation on what to try to get the Garadget to always automatically reconnect when the power goes out?
