How do I code for a missing device due to missed pings?


(Marius Piedallu Van Wyk) #1

I’ve been trying to develop an app using my Arduino, and for the most part it works really well. I’m just concerned that when I remove the device it still shows up as all-OK on my phone.

Is there anything I need to do on device-type config to allow for alert on missing devices?

I assume this is what the once-a-minute pings are for after all…

Hi Lailoken,

How are you doing “once a minute pings” – or, where did you read that from?

If you want to do an HTTP-based ping you can emulate it with this

This is a ZigBee device ping I think. The controller sends that to all ZigBee devices perhaps? Either way I can see the responses coming in in my parse() method just fine when the device is connected.
