I now have two cores in production running 24/7. However because of issues with the cloud connection, they need to be manually reset multiple times daily. (translation: my living room blinds stop working randomly and my girlfriend isn’t happy:) )
I understand the team is working on the issue, but I’m worried its just one of multiple issues. It seems to be described elsewhere as the “flashing cyan” bug when reconnecting to the cloud. While I’ve experienced this, other times when the core locks up its just breathing cyan, other times the LED is off completely.
The most frustrating thing about this is that the cause of the problem, the connection to the cloud, is something I’m not using at all.
Is it possible to turn off the cloud features on the core and use it like an Arduino with WiFi only, bypassing the current unreliability of the cloud connection? If not, could I add it as a suggested feature?
I understand it would stop OTA updates from working, but it could be considered an “advanced feature”, and up to the developer to implement it in such a way to take this into account. Eg: have a button to set
Spark.online(true) before OTA firmware upgrade is attempted.
