Today i saw some really strange things going on. Suddenly the amount of packets received by my RFXCOM receivers dropped dramatically.
I noticed this by motion sensors not going back to 'no motion' state the way they should (that is, by receiving a packet that says so).
I looked at my logfiles and somewhere around 06:25 today, suddenly the packet-rate on both of my RFXCOM receivers dropped enormously.
When i came home after work this evening, i thought it was RFX1 (see below) that wasn't functioning anymore (based on the sensors that were not being received anymore), so i dis- and reconnected power and left home again. Now that i'm back i had some time to analyze what the **** is going on. Here some statistics:
- Code: Select all
RFX1 RFX2 Total
25-11-2008 02:00 506 534 1040 (these are normal )
25-11-2008 09:00 34 23 57
25-11-2008 23:00 130 343 473
The numbers represent the number of packets received from a RFXPulse module during 1 hour. I focused on that module since that produces a relatively constant packet-flow. And it's not on batteries, so i could rule that out right away too.
But it's not just the RFXPulse module(s), everything has dropped dramatically regarding the number of packets received...
What is going on here? What can i do? I just don't get it.... [xx(]
