    I have seen posts requesting to have disabling the retry but I actually want more retries or an alarm when it doesn't go through.

    On occasions I have difficulties with autoremote messages going through Typically they work straight away, sometimes it requires a few retries but sometimes it goes the full 5 retries. Same devices and same conditions so not too sure why it's not always reliable.

    If autoremote has an option to retry more times then that might solve my problem. Or at least an obvious alarm when there is a problem.

    Hi. What kind of communication is that with? Direct Wifi or Bluetooth?

    I've had it with local wifi, but I also get it when on an external network (one phone on 4g and the other on work wifi)

    I think refreshing the devices on autoremote on the phone sending the message seems to help the local wifi problems most of the time.

    Oh, yeah, that's probably the issue. Your phone probably changes IP and the other devices don't know about it.

    Use the action to send device info to your other devices so that they have updated info and that should help :)
