    I saw a product under development (crowd funded) here on this forums and I might wait for that to come to fruition.
    I was looking at the same one and am concerned about some of the issues being reported on that product's user forum. That has pushed me more towards an Ambient plus Boltek solution but I could still go either way.

      To address this I have been running mine at 30 second polling for the ObserverIP and I haven't had any lockup issues. So it may be some trial/error involved of finding that magic number that locks up the ObserverIP and that number that doesn't.

        How often would I need to power cycle to run at 16 second polling? Is once per day often enough?
        Mine would go more than 2 days at the default 16 second update rate. John’s went longer for unknown reasons.


          So I can try 30 second polling and if I need better I can do 16 second plus a nightly reboot. That sounds like "good enough".


            I was thinking of getting one of these things. Anyone have any recent news on whether they are still locking up or if Ambient fixed the problem?


              Mine never locked up as bad as some other folks - I use an event to reboot it when communication with it is troubled.

                Gee to be honest, I have totally forgotten about the lockup issue. Mine has been running since last summer or even spring and I have not had one lockup...
