Topic: Normal vs Night Mode vs Power Save Network Usage question
After reading some of the posts showing the monthly network costs for our Chumbys and Chumdash units, I thought there might be some network savings between the different modes (Normal,Night,Power Save) of our devices.
Rather than just guess, I thought I would ask our experts. I am sure most of us with devices in our bedrooms put them in Night or Power Save mode overnight. If we have additional devices in other locations (kitchen,workshop, ?), we might be able to reduce the monthly network costs for Blue Octy by scheduling them to enter Night or Power Save mode each day.
1) When the devices are in Night or Power Save mode, do they connect to the Chumby servers ? If so, how often ?
2) For the unsubscribed units, how often do they retrieve the weather information ?
