When a sensor encounters an error, it tries to re-scan the device shortly after to check if it's maybe just a temporary "hiccup". That's why you see this re-scan's always after a Timeout error in this case. To be sure of this, screenshots would be helpful showing the content of sensor's Overview, Settings and Log tabs. Knowledgebase does not have image upload, so you would need to do this through an image hoster. Or send us those screenshots by email ([email protected]) using PAE688674 in the email's subject, so it will be linked to this thread.

Thank you & kind regards.
