Power Outages

Post by mexjerry » Sun Oct 02, 2016 2:29 pm

Hello
I have been using this software for sometime, really works well, Thank you for developing and distributing.
Living in Mexico, the power is not as stable as other places, due to lots of factors, one being thunder storms.
We have had several outages this past week, and I sometimes forget to check the raspberry to ensure 123solar is on and logging, consequently, I loose logging for the day.
Is there a method when power is lost, that will turn 123solar on, after the raspberry reboots?
Thanks
jerry

Hi Maxjerry, to prevent raspberry from frequent reboot due power outages, why don't you power it using a Li-Po power bank ? Theare are a lot on sale, and they can help.
