The previous screen shots show one example of where I need seconds which I have recently learned are only showing you something like 10 second averages giving the lower detail. I can tell when a medicator runs out of medicine when the pump goes from using 9 watts to 8 watts. I can also get an idea of the water flow rate with the detailed rate as the medicator does 1 time per gallon. When you take away the detail I can’t tell either.
I want to add that customer support responded to my emails promptly and appeared to actually read what I was telling them. I’m not holding my breath that things improve but still really appreciate them listening to my concerns. The vue 2 is incredible I just hate to see functionality decrease taking away from what the hardware is capable of.January 27, 2022 at 5:24 am in reply to: Notifications are extremely delayed and unreliable #8296 Report AbuseJanuary 25, 2022 at 12:10 am in reply to: Notifications are extremely delayed and unreliable #8291 Report Abuse
Are you saying that you are getting all of the second data but just pulling it every minute? Could you see the spike where a motor starts up with what you are pulling?January 24, 2022 at 5:50 pm in reply to: Notifications are extremely delayed and unreliable #8289 Report Abuse
I looked into it some last night. I started to panic a little this morning as I was unable to look back at second data but it appears to have since come back (I did email support and they are usually very quick to get back and helpful). Would the downloader program tax emporia’s end? I am very grateful that they as of yet have no fee, I could pay a little but with all the vues I run depending on pricing I could quickly get priced out (1 view for each chicken house for a total of 4, 2 for my house, and getting ready to install one on my well pump and farm office. Anyways point is as things are now I am extremely pleased with emporia at the current rate for what I get and don’t want to be a problem to them.
I use to run linux ubuntu and did very minimal cut and paste coding but I feel setting up what you are talking about would take me more time then I have (it took me a year to get all the vues installed/internet run to each of my chicken houses, taking care of 80,000 chickens with just your wife and little kids for help is a lot of work :)) If emporia ever reduces the seconds data anymore is this something some one could set up for me remotely? I’m not completely computer illiterate, I set up cameras with static ips at my farm on a regular basis, but I’m far from a programmer. If not do you know anyone capable of setting up something like that around Kings Mountain NC? I would pay what it takes to make someone interested, not trying to take anyone’s time for free.
Thanks to everyone who has figured out how to get data from the vues, even though I have yet to figure it out I really appreciate everyone who takes their time to share what they have learned.January 24, 2022 at 2:06 pm in reply to: Notifications are extremely delayed and unreliable #8286 Report Abuse
I use mine for my chicken houses which have lots of motors. My biggest use is seeing how much power my feed motors are using, by the second I can see when one pulls say 4,000 watts to start vs say 800 which tells me either I have a motor problem or an object has gotten lodged in an auger. I use it to see when my medicator pumps are running which only used 10 watts but it is useful to see how fast they are cycling. I can tell what is going on with heaters, how many of them or running. The uses or endless. Seconds data is invaluable for seeing what is going on with a motor. I know this is probably not emporia was designed for but it has been an amazing diagnostic tool. I don’t need days of it, a day would be perfect (I have motors go out at 4:00 AM) but I was able to make the 3 hours work by screen shoting when I had an issue. I would pay someone good with computers good money to set up away to record my data but I couldn’t afford a high monthly fee, I have 4 houses, I’m not a large corporation.January 24, 2022 at 3:04 am in reply to: Notifications are extremely delayed and unreliable #8283 Report Abuse
I had this too but I think its working correctly now. I emailed emporia about it and they told me amazon who they use for the cloud some how (I don’t know everything) was having problems on their end. I have seen this at least one other time since I have been using the vue 2 over the past year and a half or so. I feel like maybe they are overloaded again as last time they cut back storage time (cut down to 3 hours of seconds) it seemed to get better but if they cut it again it will be almost useless for diagnosing many problems (if they get rid of data by the second I’m going to have to find something else).
I have had this problem several times and every time but one (I am currently running 5 vue 2s) it has been because the sensor was loose in the vue 2, some times it wasn’t obvious but when pushed harder it went in a little more. The one time it wasn’t it was a bad sensor and it worked intermittently causing some frustration but emporia was great about getting me another one out.March 14, 2021 at 2:24 am in reply to: App notification not triggering Android notification #7154 Report Abuse
Just wanted to say mine was not notifying me with app off and even when it was on not all the time. Sometimes I would get a bunch of alerts hours maybe days later. But in past few weeks they are working great for me with app off, maybe 5-15 min delays but I think that might be how they work. I have one watching feed auger motor in my chicken house and it has kept me from letting it run empty longer then needed twice now. I have it set to alert me when it runs for more then 20 minutes.
Thanks for the reply. I can see how it would be difficult but I hope you keep trying. I put my expansion circuits on all my other circuits and watch the difference for my fans as there are 13 of them they would take up most of my expansions themselves. I can pretty well see what’s going on with the watts view but amps would be very nice.
As far as notifications did something change on your end lately? They weren’t not working reliably for me before but now are working great. Thanks.
