Re: Any way to restore config.dat automatically?

That doesn't help. Here is how I tested
1) from tools did a backup of the configuration
2) deleted the two controlers I had - rebooted
3) used curl to load the config.dat file - rebooted
4) controlers missing
5) loaded config.dat via tools - controlers showed up with out a reboot

Any other ideas?

That's great idea except ift the bme280 triggers then the dht22 triggers, the readings from the bme280 will be overwritten and I'll get the dht22 readings. Getting the bme280 readings are better than the dht22 readings.
