Device Offline / Watchdog Timer Widget

I realize that there is a notification in the Blynk app when devices ‘go offline’, but it would be nice to have a widget similar to a watchdog timer that requires communication between the server and a client every so often (and if not, then an email gets sent out, etc), this would be useful for power outages as well as the occasional arduino hangup where things seem to be working, but… aren’t.

Hi, we are investigating implementation of a feature very similar to this one, but it would be done probably via google’s notifications (there are possibility of right-in-time notifications), as other possible ways for a frequent communication with server could cause high battery consumption.

Stay tuned
