Battery Level / Sleeping Mode Issue

Post by cmpts_cmp » 09 Sep 2019 23:47

Hi all

I recently tried the ZUNO_SETUP_BATTERY_LEVELS(2700, 3300); function to monitor the 3v (CR123) battery level connected to the Z-Uno.

I had to enable the function ZUNO_SLEEPING_MODE_FREQUENTLY_AWAKE to enable this as per the reference guide.

However, doing so meant the z-uno was sleeping and I couldn't communicate with it over USB / comms port. I had to use Rescue Mode to get the z-uno back to life.

Has anyone else used this battery level checking function and had similar issues? Is there a bug?

Chris

After some more reading, this is actually by design.

FYI:

"https://z-uno.z-wave.me/Reference/ZUNO_ ... PING_MODE/

If device is in sleeping mode, the USB port is not available for uploading new sketch. Device should be woken up or turned into rescue mode before uploading new sketch. "
