Frustrated when power was interrupted at our home, my Vera locked up or my Router needed to be rebooted... this all left me unable to connect to my home automation system if I wasn't home.
I built this device to be able to:
- Get notifications in the case of either a power loss or loss of internet connectivity.
- Behave like a watchdog and power cycle either my Router or my Vera box in case either one glitches out.
- Allow Vera to see if the device is properly functioning.
Control the settings using the Vera ThreeGee1 plugin:
All of this over the 3G network using the VERY low cost IOT SIM from Particle.
