Released: 30th September 2020
The update introduces fleet management support, new features for Portal Light.
Every Portal Light that is powered up and online will automatically upgrade the firmware within 1-3 days from the release. Firmware 0.3.5 automatically upgrades to 0.4.0
Every minute Portal Light sends request to API for new beacon configuration from the same company and apply the pending configuration for nearby detected beacons. API sends in response configuration just for one beacon at a time.
Connection attempt with beacon lasts 30 seconds. Every single response from a beacon is stored in NVS and sends it to Kio Cloud API. Memory is erased when the API receives it (server response < 500). Before the next nearby request, PL checks for stored beacon responses in memory and resend.
Added watchdog to troubleshoot sending data to API. Portal Light resets automatically within one minute when there is no data sent to API.
