Frequent connectivity loss is most likely a local network problem which is somewhat common in Wi-Fi networks.
However, we would also note that the label “Searching” in the Add Device panel in Roomie should not be confused with a network connectivity indicator. The WF2IR only broadcasts every 45 seconds or so. So within a 45 second window, a “Searching” label in Roomie on a WF2IR would be meaningless.
Commands not being received however indicates a larger network connectivity issue. We recommend first upgrading to 1.5 to see if the problem still occurs and if so there may be a Wi-Fi signal issue.
