I’m thrilled with my shiny new Nova R410 and pi 3B setup. My application is a home alarm notification that sends a text message when activated. I’m replacing a 2G device on a PIC microcontroller that ran for about 5 years before T-Mobile pulled the plug on my 2G service. I’m betting that this cloud based solution will last much longer!
Anyhow, this is my first experience with a pi and I run it headless via an Ethernet wire on my Windows laptop. I have been testing the python script and think it is ready to install in my alarm panel. The script is an endless loop and I thought I could run it, unplug the Ethernet wire and say goodby. The alarm panel is in the attic and I don’t go there very often. Sadly, I’ve discovered that the script locks up after a few hours and I think the problem involves the headless configuration. The error message looks like it comes from puTTY. I’d like to keep it headless and use a keyboard interrupt if I ever wanted to stop the script. Any advice appreciated - Larry
PS - as a brand new user I tried my hardest to follow the Hologram python SDK documentation. I deviated from it when I used python3 and hologram.sendSMS instead of cloud.sendSMS. Cloud does not know about csrpsk authentication. It works today and I’m hoping it won’t cause problems in the future.
