I would like to see the Unleashed be "kissed awake" after a period of inactivity (which the user can set from within the App) by turning on the camera at least once, so the Unleashed knows that it is going to be used that day (fire up the Unleashed to get ready!). It is of no use to establish a connection with an Unleashed/camera that resides for days/weeks/months in the cabinet, not being used at all.
Well, as I said, that's exactly what we have planned! ;-)
I mean it as in: the user of the Unleashed App is "free" to configure the Unleashed hardware in terms of the time it stays awake fully, goes into hibernate mode (user turns on/off/on camera constantly spread over the day), or completely shuts down for good (when the camera is turned off and stays turned off). That means that the Unleashed hardware will only consume 1 nano Amps in shutdown mode. It would be a nice to have when the user can determine/configure when the Unleashed hardware goes step by step in a deeper sleep mode: like gradually hibernating.
First: lower the GPS update after some time, then drop the GPS connection at all, then keep the BT only connected (no data), then disconnect the BT connection completely. And when the camera isn't used for 8 hours, fully go into hibernation, only to be awakened by the turning on of the camera itself.
But I like the idea that I - as a user - can influence/program the Unleashed hardware (setting a hardwarematic setting , like in an EEPROM kind of way) once from the Unleashed App, and no matter what happens, the Unleashed hardware behaves like it is programmed from the App from that moment on. Until the user adjusts the settings again from the App.
Just making sure everybody
understands what I am explaining here :-)
