    Oct 28 23:37:55 worker hive[861]: Watchdogs InUa found: 0

    Oct 28 23:37:55 worker hive[861]: Watchdogs OpenDev found: 1

    How to really test it:

    Disconnect wires from watchodog (or do not if you dare) and do the following: /hive/opt/opendev/watchdog-opendev reset.

    Running this will send reset command: /hive/opt/opendev/watchdog-opendev power.

    Pro version will consume this command also. You should see LED blinking.
