Device Disable by the endpoint

Hello to the whole community.

I’m developing a project for my school’s final project, and I’m having some difficulties regarding the alerts created for email.
Going into details, my project is to build a weather station, from esp8266, having DHT11 sensor, wind speed sensor and wind direction sensor. After everything is in sync and fully working, I would create an alert system, to alert when the temperature, for example, was above 24 degrees, and send a notification to the email.
I managed to do this, the problem is that I received an email saying that my device was disabled due to an excessive call that failed.

First of all, how can I fix the problem in the code that call_endpoint stops running constantly without control and how do I activate my device again after replacing the code. Code below

Hi @Xavier_Brites,

The device is disabled due excessive calls, reading your code I can see that the uC is sending as much calls as it can, if temperature rises more than 24.

You need to ensure that this call is made just once to avoid get the device disabled.

Hope this helps.

I am still new in this world. Do you think you could help me solve the code, or how to make it stop so it only sends once?


I would do it by an histeresis and a boolean value, if it over 24 and false, send notification and set boolean to true (to avoid sending high temp multiple notifications) , if it drops below 22 and true send notification and set boolean to false (to avoid sending low temp multiple notifications).

Hope this helps.

Now I understand, thank you very much for your help. I hope that this way I can also help people with the same problem
