Hello WeatherFlow Tempest owner,
During a routine firmware update download for the Tempest & Smart Weather Hub (indoor base station), your Hub was unexpectedly kicked offline. You may have received a ‘station offline’ notification from the app.
If your Hub is already back online, great! You’re all set. You can disregard this message.
If your station/Hub remains offline…
- Power cycle your Hub. Unplug the Hub for a couple moments and then plug it back in. Wait a minute for it to fully reboot.
- The Hub will reconnect to the WiFi network automatically. The Hub’s LED will return to green or blue (if the Tempest Weather app is opened). The Tempest device should reconnect to the Hub automatically.
Unfortunately it is offline and I am not there for a few weeks but I do still require the weather readings.
Now that I have encountered this hub failure I am considering to improve the reliability for the future of including a daily reboot of my hub.
I will probably do it from a raspberry pi cron job.
For those of us who wonder if this is wise or not I noticed David make this comment which makes me think that it is not a completely bad idea:
