a few minutes ago I could finally install the new build which supports the ROAMING feature. (It takes a long time (almost 1,5 days after your last checkin to this build) before the raspian 8 package gets available for apt-get to find it).
My first impression looks really good. Like I have said before, I have 2 HM-CFG-LAN devices and 1 COC. When I now press a remote button while being in my office on the top floor, the peer gets changed to the HM-CFG-LAN sitting under my desk. When I do the same while being in the basement it gets “switched” to the HM-CFG-LAN in the basement.
After this initial test I have changed the ROAMING variable on all of my devices to true, because I wanted Homegear to figure out the best peer for my devices. This seems to work, but due to some small ups and downs on the RSSI values, some of the devices switch back and forth between one peer and another. Those are the devices that sit in the middle of two peers.
Is it possible to add some sort of threshold to the “reception is better” value? I haven’t checked the code yet, but for example: only switch peers if the RSSI of the new one is more then x% better or something like this.
Thanks in advance,
