Dear all, we have our PFC v1.0 up and running since July 2016, always connected to the Internet through a wi-fi dongle for RPi, and so far, so good. This set up is very convenient because we can leave the PFC anywhere, regardless of the location of the router.
Every once in a while, it gets disconnected when we lose Internet connectivity at home. Not a drama but it is an issue when it happens during the light cycle, because all the lights go off, and the growing chamber is dark until you realize and fix it.
The issue now is that this happens almost every time the light cycle starts. After a few seconds of lights activation, there is some sort of error or interruption, the RPi loses connectivity and lights go off again. Now, I have the PFC wired to the router.
Does anyone has the same issue here?
