My particle devices are now CONSTANTLY going offline/online in a way that they didn’t before. They were never as good at keeping a constant wifi connection as other ESP devices I’ve got, I think because they have to talk to the Particle cloud as WELL as maintain the wifi connection, but I’m not sure.
But since March the situation has been semi ridiculous with how unreliable they’ve become.
For a while I wondered if it might be changes to my wifi environment at home that’s doing it, like maybe my neighbours might be working from home more thus kicking my devices off the network with interference.
But I’ve just noticed from monitoring the event console that very often if a device at WORK goes offline, a device at HOME goes offline at the very same second.
Additionally, if I look at the device last handshakes, often devices at home and at work will have the exact same handshake timeout.
I think something at Particle’s end is causing these reconnects.
However, I’d very much be up for being proved wrong.
Anyone got a similar tale to tell? Or a tale which paints a different picture?
