Several times now I have noticed that when I lose internet connectivity, the hub never reconnects to the internet. All internet integrations are broken, the iOS app won't connect, etc. I have to power the hub off and back on to get it to reconnect. One annoying by-product is that time time drifts because the hub can't get to the NTP server and rules eventually trigger when they shouldn't.
Example: Last night around midnight, the internet went down. When the internet was restored, the hub didn't connect. My wife got up around 3:00 AM to go to the restroom and the motion rule, that is normally triggered during the day, turned on the bedroom lights, BAM !!! just what you want at 3:00 AM, bright lights in your face and scrambling to shut them off and the iPhone app won't connect. I got up and looked and the hub thought that it was 8:36 AM. I powered off the hub and back on and it connected to the internet and retrieved the correct time.
Day before yesterday similar behavior. We had a power failure. The hubs and local network are on UPS's but the internet provider's amplifiers down the line were off and the internet connection died. Same thing. No re-connection and time drift.
Had I been away from home and not able to reset the hub, I would be out of commission...
- Is there a way to wake up the hub and make it try to reconnect? Is there a rule that I can write?
- Can the local clock hold the time better when it loses connection to the NTP server? Can I connect to a local NTP server?
Great product but the reliability is being tainted by this problem...
Any help would be appreciated.
