Update on this project.
I have one of the (2) SV’s I have set-up like this that appears to have failed after working fine for several weeks. The other is still working fine.
The first one will just give itself the reset 1 command and show up blinking with no configuration or WIFI info. Completely blank as a default sonoff basic.
I have reloaded it, I have re-flashed it to 6.6 and 184.108.40.206. I have done
reset1 1, reset2 1, reset3 1 between config reloads. I have done manual reloads and restored the confir grom the web interface. I have reset things in the serial link and from the web link. Every time the new template is loaded, either manually or by dropping it into the ‘other’ tab a few seconds later it resets to default.
I am assuming at this point the SV has been spiked out by the collapsing solenoid coil energy. I am adding a back-biased diode and 150uf of capacitance across the output to absorb that energy and will be putting in a replacement SV after i get one. The second lock is not cycled as much, it mostly sits in the on state. i will be adding the diode and Cap to that one as well.
When I catch the eventon the console in weblog 4 I see it says button event reset and the web looses connection and the wifi starts blinking.
If you have any ideas on recovery short of replacing the SV, let me know.
