I didn't move the image from the SD card to the SSD. I created a new partition on the SSD and used rcp to copy the root partition from the SD to the SSD (there is more involved to make this work). My boot partition is still on the SD. I couldn't get the Pi to reboot with the entire system on the SSD (it worked fine from a power cycle). This was probably fixable, but I had spent enough time on it and I gave up. My goal was to have the larger capacity and reliability of an SSD, and booting from the SD and having the running system on the SSD accomplished that goal.
Camera support in MyController would be nice, however Motioneye does a good job.
My power supply is the 2.5a one that came with the CanaKit Raspberry Pi (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BC7BMHY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_qaULCbCN3G2DF). I haven't heard of any problems with this power supply.
My Pi has 3 heat sinks and a case with a fan. It is possible the fan failed, but I won't know that for a couple of months when I travel to the location with the system.
Keeping the MyController and Motioneye systems separated is (in retrospect) a good idea. It was cheaper and easier to manage remotely with both of them on one system. My one Raspberry Pi has enough storage and CPU performance to handle both programs, but that didn't make it a good idea.
Thanks much for your thoughts and suggestions.
Maybe I missed something, but I have fake sensors defined on real nodes, and I update them thru scripts, and I have ack enabled.
Everything works fine!
The message goes thru the gateway, the node receives it and replies with ack, even if it doesn't anything with it.
Is your nose sleeping maybe?
@aliasjim I noticed the MYSbootloader defaults to PA level MAX. When i use this PA level with my nodes in normal operation they don't function eigther. I might try with a bootloader compiled with lower PA level, maybe, just maybe i will get lucky. Now i only need to find someone who is willing to compile it for me
