    How do you know if your HRs are randomly rebooting?

    I don't. I've never seen the HR23 do a random reboot, but since the blue ring is off I'd know if it did. The HR24 seems to be well behaved. I also don't worry about random reboots due to power drops as both are on UPSs.

    Great point, I always know if the 24 rebooted, I always have the blue lights on highest, if it re-boots, the lights are dimmer. I like the blue lights on the 24. 99.93% of reboots are a new NR.

    Being on a UPS doesn't seem to make any difference, my 20-700s still occasionally reboot for no apparent reason and they're on UPS devices.

    When an NR hits, I have to reset my 10 HRs that are on MRV, so it's essential that I know when one comes down. Aside from that, I don't know what else they are for.

    You live in jersey, right? Is "pest control" the new "waste management?"

    No, they actually go after termites and that sort of thing. Don't make much money, the companies don't give them the proper safety equipment, don't give them proper access to MSDS sheets and seem to run as they wish in spite of the regulatory bodies.

    Seemed like a progression here in NJ, work for a pest control company, then move "up" to D* then find a job that pays some money. Interim jobs, in other words.

    Waste management is still picking up garbage.... :lol:
