Watchdog + MQTT

Watchdog + MQTT

Hello, I have a camera that is occasionally generating some signal loss instabilities (it loses the wifi connection).
To get around the problem without replacing the camera, I installed a sonoff and created an automation in the Home Assistant that restarts the camera in case of video loss.

On Blue Iris I configured Watchdog to send messages to mqtt broker on signal changes.
When I click on the watchdog test button (lightning icon), the Home assistant receives the payload correctly. But in the production environment, these messages are not sent. It is as if Blue Iris did not detect the signal loss (even with the gray signal lost screen).
Do I need to do any other configuration?

Thank you!
