I have one WiFi Blynk app that controls my heating system that was having issues with Blynk disconnects, sometimes frequently sometimes infrequently. This app has been on my network for several years. The whole time I’ve suspected that the problem really lies with CenturyLink our DSL provider. But that’s a whole other story. Anyhow, in order to try and document when these disconnects occur and how frequently I created a parallel app that really does nothing with Blynk except “Blynk.run();”. I update a record to a ThingSpeak channel when the device comes back online. Each record contains a time down, a time back online, and some diagnostic information regarding if it’s only a Blynk disconnect or if my DSL link is down. The two apps have been tracking closely to each other.
This morning when I checked my ThingSpeak channel I had an outage at 7:17 PDT. However when I checked each apps “Online since” (See attached screen shots) I noticed that they were off by an hour. I suspect that they are in different timezones but can’t find out how to change it.
