I have one mesh network that consists of 5 XENONS and 1 BORON. Although I have a XENON labeled XENON 2 it does not show up anywhere in my devices on the IDE or the APP. I had a XENON labeled XENON 6 but I removed it from the mesh, it is no longer powered and has not been for weeks yet that one shows up in the IDE in my list of devices and also on the app. I would imagine XENON 6 is still somewhere floating among the cloud. No telling where XENON 2 is in the cloud even though it is working correctly in my mesh and doing what it should do.
The XENON in my mesh labeled XENON 5 is dropping offline rather frequently. All of the other XENONs are running the exact same firmware and do not exhibit this behavior. I wanted to remove XENON 5 from the mesh and add a brand new one in its place. I guess I have to call that one XENON 7 (see issue 1). I use a watchdog timer on my BORON. From previous experience, I have found that the watchdog interferes with the pairing process. So, I flashed TINKER to my BORON for the pariing process. I get to the point of the setup where I have scanned my BORON and I get an error message that it is on a different mesh network then the XENON I am trying to pair to it. How can that be when I only have ONE mesh network?
Also, is it just me or has anyone else found it frustrating to scan the QR codes on the devices? It takes several tries and getting the camera at a “lucky” angle with just the right amount of light. To date, I have found nothing consistent or easy about pairing mesh devices. It is always a hair pulling hour or so if you manage to complete it.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to your suggestions. I am going to have a shot of whiskey right now.
I tried again with the XENON and now when I get to choosing which mesh network to join, it doesn’t find any networks. If I attempt to add the existing BORON to a mesh network and type in the name of my mesh network, it says, “you already own a network by this name, please choose another name”
