Known Issues

  • IF (anything) then MQTT actuator triggers aren’t working at the time of this release

  • MQTT actuators can sometimes lose state on browser refresh

  • LoRa devices added through iOS can have issues when viewed on Android or Web (missing history or GPS points, broken widgets)

  • Sensor information associated with LoRa GPS data points may be different between mobile and web platforms

  • MQTT actuators toggled on Android won’t change state on actual device

  • LoRa widgets won’t be created on Android dashboard unless web is open at same time

  • Some widgets aren’t updating without refresh on Android dashboard

  • MQTT widgets deleted on web will sometimes return on browser refresh

  • Deleting all devices from an account may results in an odd account state where previously added devices show as widgets, instead of the desired ‘add first device’ state. If this happens to you, PM me.


I should add that in order to facilitate the fix for the Arduino slider multiplication issue, we’ve released a small update to the Cayenne Arduino Library. You should be able to see the update in your Arduino IDE by going to Sketch > Include Libraries > Manage Libraries > Updatable.

We made a hotfix last night to address some of the more major known issues in the above list. I’ve updated it to cross out the items that are now fixed.
