I've got a soil moisture probe that has 8 sensors for soil moisture and 8 for temperature. The current VAR only allows for VAR1-5. Is there a reason that this limit can not be increased to say VAR1-15? (Some soil moisture probes has up to 15 sensors)

FOTA possibilities for remote sensor network
I am currently using GSM MQTT gateways on a sensor network. The gateway consists of a Moteino Mega (RFM95W) connected to a SIM800 module. It connects to a Mosquitto server and Mycontroller is also running on the same server.
I need a way to do FOTA. Any suggestions? Was thinking of changing the gateway to a Raspberry pi if it could help in finding a solution.
RE: MySensors gateway and network reliability
If you really enjoy fiddling with connection problems and gateways freezing you should try using the gsm gateway. At first it froze up every day or two. I now run a second mcu just to check connectivity to mycontroller and resetting the gateway when it fails. This sometimes happen a couple of times a day.
GSM MQTT Gateway fails to reconnect
Hi Guys, I'm having an issue with my GSM gateways. The will stay connected for a couple of days and then loses connection (not sure what causes this). The gateway tries to reconnect to the MQTT broker but fails and keeps trying indefinitely. The problem seems that the modem loses its gprs connection and works fine once restarted.
Can the MQTT re-connection attempts be limited to say 10 and if it still fails, restart the modem?
