I am using 30 Photons to publish wind speed and direction data every 2 seconds on a single network. Everything works great when turned on, but the devices stop publishing and drop off the wifi completely starting within 15 minutes and all cease transmitting within a few hours. I have increased / decreased the data packet size, tried publishing every 6 seconds instead of every 2, switched to static IP addresses, and added two more routers to the network. None of these actions have made a noticeable difference. All devices went through the latest firmware update yesterday, and the problem seems to have gotten much worse. Before the recent firmware update, the devices would breathe green when they dropped off.
I am publishing at half the stated 255 byte publish limit, and using a frequency of double the 1 second max publish event. Has anyone successfully used Photons for networked data collection? Is there an issue with the Particle cloud / servers? Do I need an enterprise account to operate 30 Photons in publish mode? Do the Photons somehow max out their onboard memory over time through data collection? My current ‘solution’ is to power cycle every 30 minutes. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
