No data alarm. relays

I just got another "No Data Alarm"
This means my 4G router has to be reset....which for me means flying across the ocean or bugging somebody to drive 30 -50 minutes to my boat

SO


is it possible to program one of the relays to reset when there has been a 'no data alarm"

I do think the Venus reboots after it can not get a connection? Can that be used with one of the relays to reset the router?.

You don't really need any additional logic to get this working automatically.

Just wire the 4G router power supply through one of the GX device relays, manually set the relay state to on/closed and set it up to auto reboot on loss of internet connection.

During a reboot the GX device relays will be un-energised and open circuit, at which time the 4G router will lose power and also restart.

You can set the VenusOS to reboot if looses connection to VRM. Take a look in Settings; VRM Online Portal. Then set a time on the option for Reboot Device when no contact.

There is no option with standard VenusOS to trigger a relay to reset.

you could look at the large image with NodeRed abs build a flow to do what you want.
