Thanks for the reply and examples. I want to make sure I fully understand this. The StationID is tied to the Hub; a new Tempest with an ST-0000#### will be assigned the DeviceID that the old Tempest had; i.e. new Tempest (ST-0000####) will be assigned to the previous Tempest’s DeviceID number.
So apparently. . .I can Swap Tempests in any “shell game” fashion I want. . .as long as I use Replace Device per a specific FT Hub or Tempest production Hub – right?
I have 3 separate Hubs: SKY/AIR ; Tempest FT ; Tempest WeatherSystem (production). This next part will be confusing, no doubt. I am planning to replace the old Tempest FT with the one that is currently production (Tempest WeatherSystem). Then purchase the Tempest-only device and call That One the Tempest WeatherSytem. . . .replacing it for the one that will be new FT.
I know it sounds like a lot of needless “busy” work. . .but that’s where the “shell game” part comes in (if you can visualize the shells on a table being re-arranged.)
The reason for all of this “commotion” is because my area is completely shrouded with trees and clouds. Tempest FT is now down to 2.36v and is in PowerSaveMode 2. There is just not enough sun to get it back up to even anywhere near 2.40v! The new Tempest (TempestFT149) is located 2 1/2 feet away from FT…but the new Tempest’s voltage is 2.48v with the same shade and clouds. When the sun is available. . .it will get up to 2.50v or perhaps 2.52v. I’m basically scheming with myself to get a latest Tempest device that will have better battery technology to withstand more shade and clouds than 12-16 hrs of recommended sunlight.
