Google Quota exceeded
« on: October 17, 2017, 02:04:15 pm »
I had 5 iOS devices using this plugin without issue.  I recently added 2 additional and one device is always throwing out: "Google Quota exceeded".  Some devices are very active, while a few are very infrequent.  What are the best settings for each device to reduce the "Google Quota exceeded"?

2 500 request per day , for 7 devices so 357 for a device per day , so more calls than 4 per min in average.
you must be too close to the limit.  use MUTE during the night, or reduce the polling rates

My current settings are below.  Maybe i'll change the polling period to "180"? 

Polling period: "60" Dynamic" "yes"
Distance Mode: "direct"
polling divider: "3"
polling map: "[blank]"
extra polling: "no"

I can see why Google would have a low quota for an iPhone locator :)

I have 2 iPhones, my polling period is 300, but I have a scene that pings both phones 6 times in 5 minutes when the garage door is opened. Once in a great while I get a quota error, but not very often.

How many iDevices do you have now ? Have you tried to mute them during the night ?

I would expect the quota is specific to each iCloud account. In my case, I have 2 devices on 2 different iCloud accounts. Not sure if this is true or even helpful.

In fact the google quota is independent of icloud and is per IP address. So 7 devices impacts it 7 time more than one
