Fixed. I did the update on my PC via a USB cable and it now works fine again.October 3, 2016 at 10:54 pm in reply to: Web interface says "Check device key and try again" #148
Thanks for your reply, Ray. OG is working fine. It keeps going offline in spite of being within 12 feet of my AP. I suspect the problem to be with the connection to Blynk. It may be a timing issue between my phone and wherever the Blynk Cloud lives. I am not a fan of Blynk. It is far to easy to get into trouble with this app.
If the Blynk developers could make Blynk write its own app via a compile option that would then remain stable, it would remove a lot of uncertainties. My wife (and many others, I suspect) just needs an app with one big button marked “Garage Door” and a banner underneath in Green saying “Closed” and in red saying “Open”. She is confused by all the other extraneous information and the tiny button and the lack of color when closed. Me, I love it. I did the export to a csv file. Banged it into Excel. Lots of fun.
Can;t you get Samer Albahra to write a simple app for OG with access like OpenSprinkler has? That would be much easier for many people I feel.
Thanks again for your help. I am loving OG. Really.October 1, 2016 at 12:44 pm in reply to: Web interface says "Check device key and try again" #143
I rebooted OG several time and now it works with Blynk. I have no idea why or how this happened. I changed no paraoeters. I wrote them all in a notes file before I started. I hope this thing is reliable.October 1, 2016 at 12:20 pm in reply to: Web interface says "Check device key and try again" #142
OK, fixed this. I should have been typing “opendoor” into the Device Key field. Duh.
Options now save just fine.
Blynk still says that “Your generic board is not in network” and there is no IP address displayed. It all works fine on the web interface. I will use it like that for a while.
I do not like Blynk very much. It seems more use to experimenters than for my wife’s phone. Not a success. It is far too easy to change options that would permanently stop the device from working.
