What's new?

Refreshed documentation

We rewrote the OneMeter Gateway documentation:

Installation methods below.

gateway-image gateway-package

Features

New LED statuses

LED statuses changed. Below the current LED behavior. Details: LED status.

✖ Off The application is turned off.
🟢 Blinks slowly ① Connecting to cloud.
🟢 On ② Connected to cloud.
🟢 Blinks unsteadily ③ Forwarding data.

Offline data backup

If the internet connection is lost, the data packets are preserved in Flash of the Gateway and forwarded to server when the connection is back. The data is preserved after system restart also.

The Gateway can store up to 50 days of data from one device (approx.). Check Quick facts.

You can disable offline packets buffering (enabled by default). Details: Buffering.

Performance boost

We increased the performance of the Gateway. We tested the operation with 25 OneMeter devices at once. We estimate that the Gateway can work with several devices up to 100 (assuming fast and reliable internet connection).

Enhanced monitoring and error handling

The application is configured to be restarted after 30 s of freezing. Details: Monitoring of application.

If you use System image, the Hardware watchdog is the additional mechanism of protection against computer crash or freezing. It restarts the system after exceeding the predefined CPU load.

On application restart, Bluetooth is also restarted.

The application can monitor submodules in order to restart itself in case of unsatisfactory quality of operation, for example when in the given period of time the given activity has not been done: packet reception acknowledgement by the server or first connection to cloud since app startup. The first check is disabled. More information: Monitoring of modules.

Added a possibility to log details of app operations. More information: Logs.

Fixes

Support wired internet (Ethernet)

We resolved issues with ethernet cable configuration for users which use System image. Follow its instruction.

Releasing system resources in case of errors

Previous versions of application used not to release system resources (e.g. Bluetooth) properly which resulted in errors after application restart (system restart was the only way to get it to work). Now, the application handles those exceptions properly.

Removed rare critical errors

The third-party software for data transmission to cloud has been causing critical application errors (known as memory leaks). After the time this part of the app was updated, the issues were no longer observed.
