Monitoring data wirelessly

Quote:@RayBee, are you referring to AppMode 5 which puts it in STA mode instead of AP mode

Yes. I was successful in configuring my FlashAir in AP Mode (APPMODE=4), but couldn't get it operational in STA Mode (APPMODE=5).

I really had no complaints with AP mode's operation with regards to using FlashPAP and updating OSCAR's database.  The problem lies in my iPhones and iPads.  In MacOS, my MacBook Pro, I can set the preference and order of joining networks.  In the iPhone and iPad you cannot.  It supposedly jumps onto whatever network it thinks you use the most.  So whenever I switch to ResMedFlash network each morning to grab my night's data, the iOS bean counter thinks it must be my favorite network and ranks it as number 1 in the list.  So all of my iOS devices would constantly jump onto the FlashAir network, and I would have to manually switch back to my home LAN.  It became such a PIA that I eventually nuked the FlashAir entirely as the only viable solution at the moment.  At least until I could eventually learn from others who have been successful with the same or similar hardware that I have.

To this point, the only thing I can figure is that if I had a 32GB FlashAir instead of 64GB, I might be able to partition and set up the FlashAir without constantly having the ResMed ASV reformatting and repartitioning the SD card whenever it's unhappy with what I was hoping would be the magic configuration for STA Mode.

Like I said... Too many hours/days fighting this with no clear end in sight.  So I gave up for now.  I just use sneaker-net every few weeks to transfer data.  My daily check isn't as critical as it was when I was having to tweak parameters in the search for the best efficacy of treatment and comfort.  I am there, thanks to the many wonderful people here on AB.

RE: Monitoring data wirelessly
@MCS2014, everything seems to be working from what I can see.  You previously said that no data was being recorded to the FlashAir card, but FlashPap is seeing it and OSCAR is importing it.  
I would say to use it overnight, as usual, then use FlashPap tomorrow to transfer the data from your FlashAir.  Then import into OSCAR.



@RayBee, You can reformat the card to 32GB FAT32.  I did it with my 64GB ExFAT FlashAir (numerous times now) and it works fine.  If you want to go down that rabbit hole it's just a couple of quick things using Terminal, then setting up the FlashAir again.
I have mine setup as STA (APPMODE=5) and can mount it from any computer as a network share and use rsync to copy the data to my NAS.  OSCAR then imports the data from my NAS.  Works like a charm.
My config file:
Code:
[WLANSD]

DHCP_Enabled=NO
IP_Address=10.13.115.120        ← Change to the fixed IP outside your DHCP range
Subnet_Mask=255.255.255.0        
Default_Gateway=10.13.115.1        ← Change to your router IP
Preferred_DNS_Server=10.13.115.1    ← Change to your router IP

[VENDOR]

VERSION=F15DBW3BW4.00.04
CID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx    ← Unique ID number, don’t change
PRODUCT=FlashAir
APPSSID=MyWiFi            ← Your WiFi name
APPNETWORKKEY=MyPassword    ← Your WiFi password, must be entered every time you edit this config file
APPNAME=resmedfa        ← Name for your FlashAir card
APPMODE=5                ← Important: this must be set to 5
APPAUTOTIME=0
DNSMODE=1
UPLOAD=1
NOISE_CANCEL=2
LOCK=1
WEBDAV=1
TIMEZONE=-16

I have an updated PDF I made of the process I followed when doing mine, if you haven't seen it I can repost in this thread tomorrow.
I also did some experiments which caused my FlashAir to stop working, but managed to bring it back to life.  See this post. It may help.

Ok, finally got it to work wirelessly. Thanks 

One thing though - I was unable to download direct from OSCAR as with the standard card and first had to open FlashPap, select today's date, scan it, then download it from OSCAR. Is this the correct procedure?

RE: Monitoring data wirelessly
Glad to hear it's all working!!!

Yes, that is the correct procedure.  FlashPap first, copy the data to your computer/drive, then Import into OSCAR from your computer/drive.  It's the simplest way.....

Well, auto start in a manner of speaking. In my version of FlashPAP, anyway, you click on the three dots at the bottom right and it opens up a file browser, which you point to your OSCAR executable file (.exe) wherever you've installed it.

Then, the next time you finish importing, click on the bottom button that says, "Exit and Run Sleep Tracking Software." That should close FlashPAP and "auto start" OSCAR.

RE: Monitoring data wirelessly
If the OP is still using Mac then that option to "start sleep tracking software" will not work. Apps on a Mac (OSCAR.app) are not an executable, but a package that contains different files. The binary is inside somewhere but the file utility FlashPAP uses cannot get to it.
Short of creating your own shell script for FlashPAP to use to start OSCAR, I would say to keep doing it the way you have been.

New issue. FlashPap went blank on me, can't find my account now:
