Power loss

So I’m curious what the behaviour should be when external power is lost. What happens seem really odd in that when power is restored, the Tidbyt doesn’t automatically reconnect to WiFi or the app and it says to open the Tidbyt app. Upon doing so, nothing happens, the Tidbyt is simply stuck on the screen saying to open the app. Signing out and signing in doesn’t fix the issue, I have to literally setup a new Tidbyt by giving it a name, location and WiFi password. It then connects after a few moments but all my apps have been duplicated and I have to delete the duplicates.

Is this normal behaviour or am I doing something wrong?


The esp32 is the chip used inside the Tidbyt. Wifi connectivity can be finicky some times and multiple reboots need to happen before it reconnects to the previously connected network.
