Just an FYI the Tempest is my first weather station, the idea of having one is pretty cool. I got my station back in… April/May I think, early adopter on Kickstarter, I haven’t had the best luck so far.
Here’s a event time line and some extra info:
Got my station. (yay!)
About a week in started getting offline/online hub messages. Once a day, not a huge deal.
2nd week I start getting a few offline/online messages per day.
End of second week, hub is dead, no led, no nothing. Tried the usual unplug, replace power adapter, cable, etc.
First time contacting CS, they are gonna replace it, that was simple, they really stand by their product, nice.
Got replacement hub in. (yay!)
Repeat of previous events. I had the hub sitting on a window ledge going for best line of site to the station, I was thinking maybe the heat did it?
Repeat CS experience, get replacement in. This time I just put it on a table in my office. Same thing started happening AGAIN, however the hub had a high RSSI value, 75+ so I was thinking this was the issue this time.
I moved the hub now downstairs, against the back wall closest to the station neat my AP. Station RSSI is -55 and the Hub is -36, I don’t think I’ll get much better than that.
I’m making this post now in order to log the time line and hopefully get some insite and ideas because I’m at the stage of going offline once a day, so far it doesn’t come back online unless I reboot it.
Hub/station ID 26852
Current firmware: 143
Thanks in advance, and if there is any ideas I’ll try them.
