A few weeks ago I posted about my issues with the older Wifi boards. These boards are the ones with the SEPARATE wifi module that is connected to the main board via a cable. Both of those boards were not able to connect again to the new system Litter Robot has. I found out that the new boards with the ESP32 chips on them for the wifi are the ones that work now because I was upgrading a non-wifi model with wifi and it worked perfectly while my older units didn’t.
I can confirm that you will get it working with the new boards from LitterRobot and if you email them they will give you a 50% discount to replace the older boards. Don’t be a “karen” about it but let them know you are not happy with this and you want a discount for the trouble so you can use the device features that you ORIGINALLY paid for. One other person confirmed the discounted replacement on my Youtube video I made about this so I wanted to share this. Don’t get me wrong, it still sucks to have to buy another piece of hardware because of the company’s shortcomings but it is better than nothing.
