Sensor connection issues - MetaBase-Node

What would cause the sensor to not connect when it is within range of the MetaHub device? Currently the MetaHub is set to log on a schedule for X hours, download and restart. It works for short time periods (<= 1hr) but only works sporadically with longer time periods of logging. When it tries to reconnect, the message displayed is: "warn: could not find device: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX". Then it exits the program. Only one sensor is connected at a time.

I can set up some repeated connection attempts, but I am curious what the underlying cause is. Bluetooth? C++ code? If there's something I can adjust within the underlying code I'm happy to do so.


  • I would need to see code to comment more. Are you using the defacto metahub? How are you scheduling the download and restart?

  • Yes, it's the de facto MetaHub. The commands are run via a script that uses the exact commands provided in the README for the MetaNode-Base, then a sleep command in between each. It replicates what a user would do to download from a logging state. The commands script is started from a desktop icon script.
