Hi all - I bought the assembled kit recently and flashed it with version 2 of the .ino - all went well and I was able to trip the relays with the appropriate MQTT commands. Everything went well until I unplugged the board from my PC and rebooted it.
Every time it reboots it goes back into Soft AP mode, asking me to re-supply all of my information again. Once I do, it reboots, the board pings four times, times out 3-4 times, pings four more times, and dies. It’s then back to the soft AP to reconfigure everything again.
Every 20 or so tries the config sticks but I can’t depend upon that. I’ve tried going back to version 1 of the .ino but my MQTT broker uses authentication.
The good news is that when it works, it works great; the sprinklers come on as soon as the MQTT topic receives a zone on command and turn off when it receives a zone off command. The bad news is that I can’t seem to get the config to persist following a reboot. The pin is in RUN mode, I’ve re-uploaded the code several times via an Arduino Uno, and at this point I’m tapping out – anyone have any suggestions?
