ESP8266 devices with unreliable connectivity

I have ESP8266 based devices (Sonoff) with not so reliable wifi connectivity deployed in the building; often Thinger dashboard continue to display that device is online even if they are unreachable / disconnected from wifi. I would like that the dashboard shows more realistic view so the support person can do the needful. Is there any way that I can do something either in Thinger dashboard or at device end that they ping each other more often so the dashboard displays proper connected devices information.

Hi @khurram, devices can be only detected as disconnected after some timeout, that is normally 1 minute. If the device gets disconnected, the widget should show a thumb down indicating that is not connected. I think that it is possible to implement a command between device and server to negotiate a different timeout. 1 minute is not enough for your use case?
