I am working with a group at my school and our task is to basically create an electronic post-it note that can be updated from anywhere using Wi-Fi. We Chose to use the Photon connected to a Waveshare e-Paper 4.2inch module while being powered by a 4300mah lipo battery.
We have our code working with a function that lets us send a message to the screen using either the app or the function call in the console. However, we are having some power consumption issues. One of the main constraints for our project is low power consumption and we are having trouble getting the screen to update quickly. For some reason the screen takes up to about 15 seconds to update before the message is displayed.
I have attached our code and a quick video to show what the screen looks like when its updating. Please let me know if you have any clues as to how we can fix this! Thank you
