is there a regular reboot option

hi everyone,

I have a simple (but excellent) shunt/mppt/GX system that recharges the Li batteries of our domestic circuit on our boat which lost the wifi creds to connect to the router, a reboot fixed it immediately.

Is there a way to schedule a regular reboot of the system other so I don't have to do it manually?


many thanks

Martin

There is a setting to reboot if it loses connection with the VRM portal for x hours.


Settings - VRM online portal - Reboot device when no contact

(And when this is on, you can set the duration).

If you really want to reboot regularly at a certain time each night, then you could set a cron job to do it.
Edit your crontab file and add something like this to reboot at 0100 each morning:

0 1 * * * /sbin/shutdown -r
