    From personal experience, move to Ethernet based connection.....I had found previously during testing rapid relay output changes, some would get lost....it never got lost when i moved to ethernet.

    Com Port Auto Connect Issues

    Hi

    Relatively new to Homeseer and the Audrino plug-in. Thanks to this forum I've solved 9 of my 10 issues through research. Fantastic system having used Vera before.

    However stumped with fixing this.

    Requirement:
    - Have Audrino auto re-connect when either USB connection lost or PC reboots
    - Need to have system operating close to 24/7 without intervention (WAF)

    Observations:
    1) Pulling USB plug out, Audrino plug-in still shows "Connected" with "Warning = Com Port No:4 is not open"
    2) Putting USB back in, plug-in does not restore connections, despite showing "connected"
    3) Manually disconnecting and connecting sometimes work, but often get "Error = Exception in Connect : Access to the port 'COM4' is denied"
    4) Unchecking and checking "Auto Connect" sometimes works
    5) With PC restart, connection re-established automatically 80% of the time
    6) Manually killing the service "HSPI_Arduino (32)" (Arduino IDE) seems to unlock access to the com port and everything works fine again

    Setup:
    - Arduino Mega 2560
    - Arduino Plugin V1.0.0.147
    - Arduino IDE 1.8.1

    Debug file attached.

    Any help or advice to a novice appreciated.

    Thanks!
