It’s gone. Its gets tiring seeing random disconnects because I can no longer have the devices reboot.
I’m not sure random disconnects are due to not being rebooted, but some people do reboot their cameras. You can schedule a restart using Rules:
That’s a soft reboot. If you have a Plug attached you can do a hard reboot (cycle the Plug off and on – turn the Plug off from 4:29 AM to 4:30 AM, for instance).
The random disconnects are due to the device. All devices will go offline eventually. I had some cameras rebooting weekly, Then I noticed the cameras started going offline again.
I will check out the rules section.
There is no means to reboot the lights. They are also a source of disconnect frustration
I reboot all my cameras at staggered times every night. Odd number cameras reboot at 01:[camera number], and even number cameras reboot at 02:[camera number]. In other words, camera 1 reboots at 01:01 and camera 34 reboots at 02:34.
[Had to edit because formatting screwed up by the forum software].
That is a pretty good way of doing it, if I am reading it correctly that would give 2 minutes for the camera to come back online before the next one reboots.
Correct. That way I largely do not lose camera coverage since anyplace important has overlapping coverage with at least two cameras.
I may have to implement that for mine, I do have overlapping coverage for the important ones but I want to reboot them daily without leaving an area uncovered too long.
Bulbs? Floodlights? Spotlights? Light Strips? Floor Lamp?
Are you sure you don’t have intermittent router issues on the 2.4 GHz band? I’ve replaced my sister’s router for this.
The Color Bulbs. They go off line at least once a month and I have to remove power to them.
Nothing wrong with my Wi-Fi. Some of the cameras never go offline, and some are doing it at least once a week, even with the daily reboots I now have going on.
