Good day everyone, been enjoying WLED for a couple of years now…love it
I have 5 separate WLED instances - each about 200 LEDs, ESP32s, V13.0b4, all on same subnet and UDP port. I named one instance to be ‘Master’ and set it up using the sync button so the other 4 ‘slaves’ take the sync signal from Master and the patterns are replicated across all instances. Therefore, the user only has to control Master and the other 4 sync from that Master. That works fine, no problems whatsoever when running.
However, when one of the 4 slaves is rebooted (they are not all on the same source power switch) then that one slave instance returns to it’s default setting, which is not what I want. I want the rebooted slave to sync back with the Master and carry on as it was before reboot. Reading the kno.wled.ge wiki it seems that the Master only sends a sync when it’s own pattern changes and there seems no way to set a ‘slave’ to check for a ‘master’ on boot. Looking thru Macros it seems I could set a periodic refresh at specific times, but there’s no cron type functionality whereby I could say ‘send UDP packet every 5 mins’ so that the newly rebooted slave will pick up the new sync after max 5 mins - which would be OK.
Have I missed something?
Thanks in advance anyone
