Came home to no automation at all today. Couldn't access the HUB from browser either. Dashboard failed to load. I can go to http://HUBIP:8081 so the network is working fine. Made no changes to the HUB the past week.
Update: So I pulled power to power cycled the hub. Looking at past logs, I see these two errors.
Was the light red? RIP...
It'd be nice if the new app coming out had a heartbeat so we could know this stuff and toggle a WIFi switch to reboot it if it's dead. Then triage the problem later when you get home.
Wow. so maybe it was overloaded.
I've put mine into overload loops trying to mess with changing a light color that I think ran away recursively in Rule Machine. The light stays blue and chrome acts like it sees the web server but it's so bogged down that it "can't even".
I think I will invest in a wifi plug so I can power cycle the hub remotely. As is now, i have to climb ontop of my kitchen counter to get to the hub ontop of my kitchen cabinet.
Just FYI, I use a Belkin WeMo plug to do this.
Thanks for reminding me about wemo. Bought a wemo since I already have the wemo app to control the humidifier and heater.
This sounds really familiar. I ended up getting the wemo outlet for this very reason. Never have needed it, since it stopped crashing.
I just had the same problem tonight.
