[SOLVED] Sending beacons
« on: July 01, 2016, 02:29:28 am »
Hello.

I noticed a very strange behavior from the mcModules and beacons. I started up 5 new modules and the first I did was flashing them with the latest firmware  and that was mcMod110_v0.7-357 at that point.
Started mcOTAUpdater and searched for device and installed the battery and then flashed the device, no problem here at all.

But i noticed that the device was sending a lot of beacons to my MQTT broker and with that I mean 30-40 right after each other, I did the same step with the rest (4) of the modules and same thing happened with them.
The only way that I could get them to stop sending this amount of beacons was that I had to connect them once to a broker, and that is not a big issue, I mean almost always you will connect them to a broker once you have installed a battery.
But, yesterday my gateway become unresponsive and did not send anything, no beacons or MQTT messages.
I rebooted the mcGateway and it started to work again, but now I have two devices that is sending beacons like crazy, removing the battery and install it again does not help.
This time I opened mcStudio and clicked connect on the device and I noticed that the multiply beacons stopped, I did the same with number two and it also stopped so i did not even get connected to the device but i assume that some sort of command was sent from mcStudio to the device.

I know that this sounds strange and that it's very hard to debug but I just wanted you to know that this has happened and maybe not only for me? I have seen this before but now I could reproduce it with 5 devices.

I heard discussion about the problem you describe but today is Canada-Day so nobody is in the office. You have to wait to Monday. Sorry about that.

I think this issue is now resolved in Gateway Host Processor v0.7.405, I will test this new version.
