I would like to bring up something I came across recently. My open garage was running slow as molases. Pressing the button on the webpage or blynk, it would take 5 minutes before the garage door would open. I figured out the problem was that my mqtt server was down. As soon as I got it running again everything was back to normal. Just an observation, if you have mqtt setup and you stop using am mqtt server, it will cause issues with open garage.
Curious I’ve not see that before. There is a non-blocking reconnect every 5 seconds but that shouldn’t hold anything else up. If I get some time I will try to reproduce this on my hardware (I’m not using Blynk though). Beyond that you could try changing the following to increase the retry interval:
Ben, I’ve been too busy to try your fix, i actually just removed the mqtt code for the time being to get things working since my mqtt server won’t be put into action for a little while while I remodel. I’ll let you know when I get a chance to test out the increased timing. On a side note my brother experienced the same problem with his open garage as well, unfortunately he was using my mqtt server as well so he can’t test his at the moment either.
