How often does Twine communicate when in Power Saving mode?
I appears to go into battery-saving phase naturally. I am setting it up with the mag switch on our front door. This will tell me when the kids are home from school.
However in my testing the Twine is taking several minutes between reports. This makes me wonder if Twine might miss the door opening and closing?
Please advise on how to adjust Twine appropriately for this and many thanks for an AWESOME product!
The Twine is a new type of product that has never existed before, it is a product still in development and as such there will always be teething issues. While you may be experiencing issues, i hope you will persevere and work with the guys at Super Mechanical to identify the issue which is particular to your Twine\wireless router, the end result is that we all benefit and get a better product.
My Twine goes into power saving mode no matter what I do. I have spent the last two nights debugging the problem with no resolution...tried everything.
Best of Luck all....
I am happy to keep working with Twine to solve it, but not at the pace that my conversation with them is going (one response every few days).
When I change the orientation to up:
1. The LED lights up almost immediately
2. The web site status is updated within 5 seconds
3. I receive an email within 10 seconds
So this is working well for me. The difference may be our routers. I'm pretty close to my router and I'm using WEP security with SSID broadcast. What is your router setup? Maybe there's a common theme?
But none of this means the product or the makers are a failure! They've done, and are doing a good job of supporting this device to people all over the globe, it's not as easy as you may think.
Remember what you paid for too, you backed the concept and development of this product, which is exactly what they're doing right now. It must be frustrating and disappointing to the TWINE crew to constantly see a few people saying they've failed, when they haven't.
