Power loss?
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:20:49 AM »

Question- I was told by X10 tech that itís ok to unplug and relocate WiFi module without any loss.
But! Power went out for under a minute and module forgot timer settings?
I noticed lights didnít go on and redid settings???
Thoughts??? Thx!!!

From discussions here, it seems as though the WM100 loses it's time of day during power loss. I don't think it loses the timer settings, just the actual time and needs to be reset to the android/apple device by sync. Hope that helps.

when you unplug and move the Wm100 or power is lost it must be resynced with the app currently to reset the onboard clock.
If this was not done that is why the timmer failed.
It is hoped that a firmware update will alloww the WM100 to sync the time with the internet in the future.
It should be noted that if the WM100 loses power while connected to the app it will auto sync to the app once power is restored.

Thank you! All makes sense re time of day.  And yes, timer settings and devices remained intact.
Thanks!
