So I agree that in theory, it shouldn’t care about an Internet connection and continue sending out UDP packets forever. But I’m looking for confirmation that that’s the case.
What happens when it runs out of internal storage because it hasn’t been able to upload data? Will it decide to give up and stop communication on the local network?
I’m asking because I have equipment that fails when it can’t phone home and the failure mode is to disconnect from the local network. It does this even when the only thing I want to do with it is local network based. So I want to verify that the hub won’t do this
I’m not so concerned about the setup as I can do that where I have Internet and then move it.
So maybe better stated my questions are:
- Will there be any long term issues if the hub can’t connect to the WeatherFlow servers?
- Will the hub start sending UDP packets when it’s first connected to the router even if the router is not connected to the Internet?
The answer to #1 may be “we don’t know, but if it there are, it’s a bug” and that would be fine.
