Stanley Healthcare Hugs software stops working due to timeout or is in deficit credit mode. (KB943)


A Stanley Healthcare Hugs (Infant Protection Solution) software stops working due to deficit credit timeout or is in deficit credit mode showing you that you have two weeks or less to purchase new credits.


There is a know issue with the Hugs software that may cause it to use more credits then necessary.  This sometimes causes the software to run out of LNS device credits.  When this happens LNS gives you two weeks to purchase new credits.  If the LNS Server has been deficit credit mode for two or more weeks the LNS Server will time out and you will not be able to use the Hugs software until either new credits are purchased or you request replacement credits.

In general, Echelon doesn't replace device credits due to third-party software bugs.  Echelon makes an exception for the Hugs software as it is used for infant protection.
