  • There is a discrepancy between the telemetry code here and in GitHub. In the main loop, the first IF statement should look like this: if (waitForUpdate || millis() - bootupStartTime < communicationTimeout || batterySOC > 75.0 || pumpOn) The comparison operator is backwards in the code in the tutorial. This sends the Photon right to sleep in the “else” portion.

  • I would recommend a pressure based tank level transmitter. You can get one for around $40. I know that might be more expensive than some would like to spend but it will be a LOT more reliable.

    • Indeed, that’s the plan, but I haven’t had time to implement it. You can actually get pressure transducers for about $10 if you know where to look ;)
