I went to go make coffee this morning* and I noticed my Spark Core wasn’t breathing like it should be.
It was fast blinking cyan which means it isn’t communicating with the Cloud. I first ensured that my WiFi AP was up and working, which it is. I bumped the power (reset button) and it just flashed green. I then held down the mode button until it flashed a steady blue. I ran the CLI and attempted to give it the credentials but it would flash green.
OK, I’m a little annoyed at this point.
I factory default the device and now, when I try to load credentials and connect to the Cloud, it flashes cyan. I checked the Particle Cloud status but it is saying that everything is OK. My AP isn’t flaky as that is what I am using now. I currently have it connected to my laptop for power and it was on a cell phone charger transformer during normal operation.
What gives? Why isn’t it playing nicely and doing what it is supposed to do?
*I have a Spark Core controlling a relay that connects/disconnects a 110VAC outlet.
