In Configuration Support
Hi everyone! So I've been trying to configure my AudioMoths so that they will record 10 minutes, then rest for 20 minutes etc from 7:30am-7:30pm. Since that time period is more than the 5 allowed periods, I've set the device like in the photo below. I've been deploying them around different sites the past week, but every time I check on them in the morning, there aren't any files on the SD card (which were all formatted to FAT32 before I used them and I double check the configuration before putting them in place). What's weird is that the indicator lights are all correct (solid green when configuring on the USB/OFF setting and flashing green when on standby or blinking red when recording when on the CUSTOM setting) and the clock is still correct when I collect them later, it's just that there are no files in the card. I'm wondering if there is a maximum time allowed on the duration for the sleep/record duration that I'm hitting and if so, what should I do about it? (The devices seemed to be recording just fine when I was testing them out in DEFAULT mode, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue, but I could be wrong). If there isn't a limit, is there anything I should do to troubleshoot the issue and figure out why it's not recording properly?
