HS105 Mini Plug
Hardware Version: 1.0
Firmware Version: 1.5.6
First off, I love the HS105 mini plugs, in normal conditions they stay connected and work flawlessly. If they lose connection, the reconnect right away. However, after they intially try to reconnect it seems they never try to reconnect again. I'm not sure if our HS105's have the most current firmware, but I have used the app to check for firmware updates. The app always say they are up to date.
So these are the scenario's I am referring to:
If the electric goes out once the electric comes back on they try to reconnect faster than my router boots up. They stop trying to reconnect and never try again. Result: The plugs never reconnect. Solid Amber light.
If the eclectric blinks a few seconds (like during a storm or something) they try to reconnect faster than my router reboots. Result: The plugs never reconnect. Solid Amber Light
If I need to reboot my router (cause as we all know routers need rebooted from time to time) they try to reconnect faster than my router reboots. Result: The plugs never reconnect. Solid Amber light
So if any of the above happens when we are not home or away, the plugs are rendered useless. I have left them 48 hours to see if they would reconnect. They never reconnected on their own.
This is all resolved after unplugging and replugging all 6 plugs...all over the house. Once plugged back in they check and reconnect. What a pain!
If the plugs are getting power, and detect that they are not connected to a network shouldnt they recheck for connection at least every 15 minutes or so?
These are useless for someone on vacation, or have a second home they monitor remotely.
Is there any fix for this or a fix in the works?
