Hello everyone, I recently bought the home center 3 to replace the 2. I wanted to know if it was possible to receive a notification if the box went out or lost internet access? I've had frequent power cuts in my neighborhood and don't want to have to throw away half of my freezer again . I don't have the possibility to install a generator, I would just like to be notified as soon as possible. Thank you in advance! Have a nice day! Steve
When I am away, I would like to be warned about power failures. I intend to install a small UPS (battery backup) covering my HC2 and the router/modem, to maintain communication. The HC2 itself therefore will not sense the power failure. What do you suggest as an easy way to detect that power is out? Periodically turning on some item and checking power consumption? Testing communication with one or several units, assuming that if there are multiple failures they are caused by a power outage? Or is there a simpler way? How would you implement this in a scene? Preferably one that is triggered by the power outage itself, not by a time-based trigger.
