Now that I have the ethernet board hooked up the app is much more responsive. I'm hopeful the ethernet board doesn't time out like my wifi module did.

We have really spotty cell service around here so today when I went into lowes or got home and didn't have wifi connected the app displayed notifications saying it couldn't connect to the controller.

I was curious how the app decides to post that message and had an idea... maybe it's stupid?

Prior to posting the notification could you ping 8.8.8.8 and hold off posting the notification for x amount of time if 8.8.8.8 doesn't respond? That way the app knows it can't connect to the controller because the phones data service isn't working.

not a stupid idea.
it's supposed to check if the network state is disconnected before it attempts to communicate. of course, you may still have a connection but not be able to get on the internet. I'll have to look into this as well. I cannot promise anything anytime soon unfortunately as I have no free time currently to do anything development wise (regular work, my 2 boys, and working on my addition consumes all of my spare time plus extra)
