after I moved from my good old raspberry to a thin client PC with Proxmox, Ubuntu and node 10 I have problems with homeduino. Everything else works fine. After startup it works for a while, but then it stops to work. There is no error shown. But no device reacts on the commands.
Who is running homeduino under node 10.x
pi@pimatic:/ $ node -v v10.16.3
On Raspbian Buster Pi3… Still have that good ol’ Pi?
Seriously, have you tried running Pimatic and homeduino with the debug flag? Perhaps this gives more input as to where the problem originates. My gut feel is OS / UART comms.

I have ported the serial driver used by homeduino to support node v10. It is working flawlessly in my Raspi setup with node v10. So as Dan pointed out it is most likely not an issue with node v10 but with the underlying driver(s) for serial communication via USB. Apart from checking homeduino debug output you should also check kernel log messages. I can imagine some device error or a device deregistration is reported at some point. It may also be a problem with the Arduino. as these things can break. Do you have a spare one to test with?

I am running v4.6.2
Reading all the issues on the forum I don’t dare to upgrade anything anymore
Also because I have running a lot in Pimatic, I can’t afford to have problems with it…
But I know, once I have to upgrade…
