Keeping Dashboard Alive

by grandaphi on Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:42 am

I'm trying to get a chromebook to display a permanent live view of the adafruit IO dashboard I am setting up which will show when people are in or out of the office using their wifi connection and IFTT to update their binary statuses (IN/OUT). I have switches that show these statuses on the dashboard, and these toggle when IN or OUT is sent from IFTT to the feed. The switches can also be manually toggled on the touch screen of the chromebook which updates the feed.

Problem is that the page seems to 'timeout' and the switches won't toggle after a certain time if IFTTT updates the feed. I tried using a chrome extension (Staying Alive and others) to send requests and/or refresh the page at set intervals. This doesn't fix the issue.

Strange thing is, that if I toggle the switch manually on the chromebook, the feed is still updated, but the switch still won't toggle from feed updates from elsewhere.

Can anybody help with this?

Hi, I have the same problem. Maybe it's Adafruit IO error. I'll try this on other MQTT service.
