Imperihome needs to be restarted a few times daily
« on: December 19, 2016, 10:46:34 am »
I often experience that Imperihome Pro on a local pad frequently has a communication error with Vera.
It is visible on a screen with camera's, it shows ....error connecting...
but not on another screen with e.g. only lights. If I try to switch on/off a light it simply does not work.
Once I close the app and restart it again, all is ok again.
This happens a few times per day.

What could be the cause, and is there a solution for it ?

Could there be an issue with the wifi?

I needed to install a "keep always on" wifi app. The name of that app is "advanced wifi lock"   you might want to try it.

When you say "a local pad" are you really saying an iPad...?  I use Imperihome on both an iPad and an Android tablet, with the iPad I experience exactly what you describe but on the Android it's rock solid.

Sorry, too little information: the pad is an Asus pad on Android, local wifi.
I read somewhere else that some people use the app Tasker to kill and restart Imperihome every now and then,
but that is really a "brute force" workaround..

@Cor: I will check the wifi settings, and see if the app that you mentioned will solve the issue
