Sinope Propane Tank Level Reporting Question

@mike.maxwell , I think this is for you. :slight_smile:

I was just going to order another Sinope Tank Level gauge for my fuel oil tank.

So, I was looking at the logs. Temperature reporting is as I specified: every 10 minutes.

However, there is only one report on tank level since I restarted the hub, along with a soft reset/log purge, naturally, at 8 PM last night.

This is on a generator propane tank, and the level hasn't changed.

@mike.maxwell , I remember you modified the driver to filter out some bogus readings..e.g., 0% and 83% readings.

I don't have more extensive logs because of my log purge, but can you tell me what's going on? Will it be reporting at some % change and/or every 12 hours or so?

Thanks.

Do you mean the actual propane level hasn’t changed? Or just what the device reported?

This seems like a foreseeable downside of purging logs.

Actual

No kidding, lol.

I think I might have answered my own question back in July.

Is it supposed to send a new level report if the actual level hasn’t changed?

That's what I'm not sure of. But, reading that linked thread, and maybe another, yes, it should. Not sure of what level drop would kick it out though.

And there it is: 12 hours.

I did indeed order another level sensor for my oil tank.
Will report on that in another thread.
