Power loss, data still available?

I don’t have a fingbox, but have a question, if a fing box loses power, do you still have access to the data of recent digital presence?  Is this data pushed to the cloud relatively timely? How often does it sync?

    @evil, same rules apply as above.  Depending on network size, 5 minutes for the smallest and up to 20 for the largest.  I have over 40 devices and its ~20 minutes for me...

    Hi @Evil , Fing also has a web based app at fing.com.  if the fingbox is offline you should still see data per the list scan.  This data includes the recent events of a device as well as overall network logs.   As to how often is sync's, I found this thread....  

    "The frequency of the scan is every 5-20 minutes based on the network size set on Fing App and any changes in state of devices."

    For example as I write this, the last discovery time was 20 minutes behind real time and I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 devices.

    @Marc, Thank you for the response.  I guess I also was wondering....if a 'bad actor' got close to the network/house and was detected and fing registered it as an event.  How quickly would the MAC address of their device sync to the cloud?
