Hi, I build up DB entrys from the informations about the notes, repaters and the GW and create a live visualization in a browser. The goal was to see the structure of the mash and see the routing. If I power up the GW as first and then the nodes it will be worked very fine. In the other order there are missing things (i.e things the bootloader send). But the worst thing is that i'm not able to get a feedback from the node/mash about there presens (health) at a later time.
So it would be great to have:
-a function to scan the network (without to reset all nodes)(except sleeping nodes).
- get information about battery powered (/sometime sleeping node) and full powered (every time responding) node.
- In the case of a battery powered node - the info about the minimal notification time would be very interesting. So I would be able to say: "The minimal notification time is 1day, I didn't hear something from this node in the last 3 days, so I change the health state from green to yellow (warning) and again 3 days later to red (error).
- Or, and this is my request in general for powered devices. Set the time of minimal keep_alive messages.
A littel bit other topic:
- OTA BL: To reduce the risk of a wrong firmware the configuration of the hardware is interesting. Means mainly running at 8 or 16Mhz. (( Maybe also the µC (future), the connection's schema of the nrf24 or in general the connected communication module - if you also plan to connect things like the rf69).
Tell me if I overlook such features.
