Hello guys! I am a "new guy in town"...
I already succeeded to connect my ESP12 to Cayenne trying to replicate RichP's experience https://www.wemustbegeeks.com/esp8266-nodemcu-wifi-iot-garage-door-opener-relay-with-cayenne/
All things went well (not surprisingly). Or almost....
As the wiring is put in place and the sensors being "seen" online, I begun looking for the real life functioning of the gadget. And watching closely the serial info I get from my ESP I realize that the frequent disconnections from arduino.mydevices.com:8442 are conducting to a very unpleasant feeling for the one which tries, in the real world, to use this little application. The Cayenne interface is going "online" and "offline" all the time.
If somebody have the curiosity to read a log of my serial messages will understand rapidly what the problem is.
Of course I tried, first, to get some answers from this community but I wasn't able to. Even if there are a lot of "complaints" close to this one, I couldn't find references to.
Secondly, I've tried to look for the problem right in my "yard". For example I tried to connect through another access point (my private phone using "GSM data connection", as Access Point. The same result.
I tried to connect with Telnet exactly when serial is reporting "connecting to..." unsuccesfuly but with Telnet it was OK
What can I say more?! At different times of day the communications are OK, having 10-20 minutes without disconnecting. But there are period when 10-20 minutes there is no connection.
So, now I am putting my question: is it right to have such erratic and often disconnections or is it a malfunctioning of the system, or am I doing something wrong?
I am looking forward to have some enlightment for this issue.
Thanks in advance.
