I had two defective Xenons that were bricked while having their firmware updated. Particle replaced them after two months but they sent me 2 Argons instead.
I do not wish to wait another 2 months for the correct replacement. So if I use the Argon in the place of the Xenon, what changes do I need to do to the code to ensure that power consumption remains low? I am not putting the Xenon to sleep, I just want to make sure that the WiFi radio does not drain the battery.
For example, do I check for the platform ID then turn WiFi off using:
#if (PLATFORM_ID == 12) WiFi.off();
Or is this not needed? The system is running off solar so reducing power consumption is very important.
Thanks in advance for the community’s help.
