Hi, I just got the IoTaWatt and am trying to configure it before putting it in my subpanel. Unfortunately I seem to be having WiFi connection issues.
I’ve tried a combination of a 2.4GHz only SSID and a 2.4/5GHz SSID. My latest attempt with the mixed 2.4/5GHz SSID seems to be a little more reliable. But once in a while on power-cycle it still does not connect, and I have to power-cycle a few times. I guess it does not continually retry? Any other suggestions to allow me to not have to continually power-cycle when it does not connect? Worst case I can add a smart plug to the adapter, I suppose. It’s just a little inconvenient.
I’m in a connected state now, and when I go to status, it’s reporting an RSSI of -67 / -68. Given that and from what I read in other comments, it sounds like the IoTaWatt is probably not going to work if I put it in the subpanel? So my guess is I’ll probably have to setup a repeater. I do have an Asus RT-AX92U, currently only running in a single router configuration. But I can setup a mesh if I need. Has anyone seen any issues with the IoTaWatt running in a mesh WiFi configuration? (I have seen other devices not like it so much).
