I’ve been using WebCore for about 3 years now. About a month ago, there were many problems with “wait” commands not working properly. It got resolved on the back end. I feel that I am experiencing something similar to that again.
What I see…
Several pistons that use wait commands count down in a trace like normal. Then when it gets to “zero”, the status changes to “pending” and the text turns red in the trace and the counter starts going up.
I know about the browser issue when a piston starts counting up. A browser refresh usually resolves that problem. I’m not having that problem.
Wait commands that are for 25 seconds are taking over a minute (it seems…I haven’t narrowed down to see how long it waits for).
I have TCP to “Never” on ALL of my commands in the pistons where it allows me to choose it.
It’s intermittent, too, but often enough to cause the following problem:
I’m using these to feed plants via hydroponics. Normally we give a 25-second feeding to all of the plants. We normally go through about 100 gallons of water/nutrient solution per day. Since the wait commands are taking longer, we are going through 150-200 gallons per day. I’m considering moving away from SmartThings/WebCore due to this problem.
