We recently had a looooong network outage, around 24hrs straight of no internet access. Obviously Sense was offline (according to the app) during this period. I was hoping that Sense would store the data during that period and sync it all as soon as the ISP fixed the connection, but unfortunately it did not, and we have a large gap in our data now. My concern is that this now throws off our ability to predict future power bills, total solar credits gained over the year, and so forth. I know I could connect Sense to a dedicated 3G/4G hotspot, but I don’t think that’s worth the expense long term.
I’m curious if Sense has the ability to store data for a certain period of time, and if not, has anyone else come up with a solution for this? For example, could Sense push data to some other location on my LAN even if the internet connection is down?
My only fallback source of connectivity is the 4G hotspot on my phone, which I don’t have Sense connected to. A small hack on that front - if I set my 4G hotspot to have the same WIFI SSID and password as my home WIFI network, would Sense connect and continue syncing data normally during an ISP outage?
