note

When you the following settings to 0 they assume the following defaults:

  • ls_secs: 1 hour
  • mesh_sds_timeout_secs: 2 hours
  • min_wake_secs: 10 seconds
  • phone_sds_timeout_sec: 2 hours
  • phone_timeout_secs: 15 minutes
  • screen_on_secs: 1 minute
  • sds_secs: 1 year
  • wait_bluetooth_secs: 1 minute

charge_current#

Sets the current of the battery charger

is_low_power#

If set, we are powered from a low-current source (i.e. solar), so even if it looks like we have power flowing in we should try to minimize power consumption as much as possible. YOU DO NOT NEED TO SET THIS IF YOU'VE set is_router (it is implied in that case).

is_router#

Are we operating as a router. Changes behavior in the following ways: The device will only sleep for critically low battery level (i.e. always tries to stay alive for the mesh) In the future routing decisions will preferentially route packets through nodes with this attribute (because assumed good line of sight)

ls_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of 3600

mesh_sds_timeout_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of two hours, MAXUINT for disabled

min_wake_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power pagefor details. 0 for default of 10 seconds

phone_sds_timeout_sec#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of two hours, MAXUINT for disabled

phone_timeout_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of 15 minutes

screen_on_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of one minute.

sds_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of one year

send_owner_interval#

This sets how often to send the database of node owner information with other nodes in the mesh (per mesh network ping).

For instance the default interval of 4 will send the node owner information for every 4 mesh network pings. This information is also transmitted after the node first boots up.

wait_bluetooth_secs#

Power management state machine option. See the power page for details. 0 for default of 1 minute
