New to dash/arduino programming but coming up to speed. Have programmed and deployed a dash temperature sending setup in the woods and got it to work for 3 days with a 720mAh battery (in 9-20˚ temps). Part of that was making sure I powered down the HologramCloud and go into deep sleep between readings, which are every 15 minutes.
Something that wasn’t originally obvious when setting up and debugging the sketch is that when you go into deepSleep the serial connection goes away. What I’m not sure of is how long it takes to come back: is that dependent on the mac driver waking up, noticing it and restoring the device? Is there any call (like HologramCloud.getConnectionStatus()) where you could block until it’s available again?
At one point this weekend something (mac/driver) started changing the /ldev entry pretty much every time I did a new build. Normally it would be /dev/cu.usbmodem14621 but that wasn’t showing up and a newly numbered entry would have to be selected in the IDE’s port setup each time. Anyone see that?
