Announcements / BlueSpray v2.2 is released
« on: October 19, 2018, 07:17:44 PM »
We are pleased to announce the release of BlueSpray firmware version 2.2.  This version has 1 major feature and of course, minor bug fixes.
Feature added:

- Notifications: You can sign up to be notified of any event that occurs on the controller.  The notifications will be sent out to your registered email.  So you'd need to register your controller in order to benefit from this feature.

Bug fix:

- Controller's time some times set back to 1970: Due to problems with NTP server at times. the controller cannot get the correct time and would default to 1970.
- GUI interface for Daily Repeat feature not working on touch device.

Hardware wise, all BlueSpray controllers will be equipped with Ethernet from now on.

Help / Re: Stacking issue?
« on: October 01, 2018, 10:40:06 PM »
It is not stacking.  You probably have the pump connected to the master valve.  When you start a program and specify that you want to run it with master valve on, it'll turn the master valve when the program starts.
Now, if you run a program that starts the pump only for 2 minutes at the same time, it will start the pump, but aster 2 minutes, the pump only program stops and turns off the pump.  I think this is what you're seeing.

If you need to run a program with a pump on for the duration of the program, specify to run the program with master on.  If you need to run the pump for 1 minute ahead of the program, then start the pump only program 1 minute ahead of the other program.

Google has decided to change their map policy.  However, accessing through your account should work.

Google has decided to change their map policy.  We're working to resolve that.

However, accessing the controller through your account should work.

We have plan to implement backup and restore to the cloud, but I heard marketing is deciding whether it'll be a paid subscription service, since it'd be stored in the cloud.

Help / Re: changing from 8 zone to 16

So you originally had an 8 zone and you've got a 16 or did you add an expansion module?

Feature Request / Re: Soil Moisture Sensor Integration
« on: April 22, 2018, 11:15:18 AM »
We currently support open/close soil moisture sensors such as the Hunter and Toro.  Just connect the sensor to the controller's rain sensor. 

However, these sensors only tell you wet and dry.  For more intelligent moisture level monitoring, we'd need to read the sensor's output directly.  We're working on readers for the TDR sensors such as Vegetronix, waterscout, decagon, etc.  Problem is these sensors have low voltage output, require short cable, which cannot reach the controller.  We're developing solutions to collect moisture data from a long distance.

Help / Re: Upgrading Firmware - Dead Controller

You should not unzip it, just upload the while zip file.

Try rebooting the controller and see if it comes up.  If not, you've bricked it.  You can contact our support.

You didn't have to.  It'll correct itself after the day the time switched.

If you can hear the relay click, that means the relay's contact is closed.  After that, it's the other side.  Check your terminal contacts.

It does work, but not with touchscreen mode.  The UI detects the touchscreen and goes to touchscreen mode.  In this case, press and hold to simulate right click.

We've seen people using Google or Facebook just fine.  Just make sure your image is viewable by everyone and does not require login.

Help / Re: Master Valve on-off for individual zones
« on: July 10, 2017, 07:39:17 PM »
For more flexibility, the Master Valve can be set per program.  A program can consist of 1 or more zones.

You can create a program that runs some particular zones that you want the Master valve to turn on and set Master valve for it.  Create other program(s) with the zones you don't want the Master valve to turn on and select no Master valve.

There is no limit on how many programs you want to create nor the start times you want them to run.  So you pretty much have limitless combination of whatever you want to do.

If you change your router/ISP or your wifi password, you will need to provision your controller again to tell it your new wifi password.

To reset:

1. Locate the reset switch on the left side of the controller.  Slide it down for 20 seconds then slide it back up.
2. The amber linght will start flashing.  Use a laptop or tablet, look for the bluespray hotspot.
3. Connect to the bluespray hospot.  Type http://192.168.1.1 on your browser.  You will be connected to the controller.

Provision:

1. Click Setting->System
2. Click the wifi button next to the SSID field.  The controller will scan for wifi networks nearby.
3. Select your wifi network.  Make sure it has at least 3 bars.  Click OK.
4. Enter your wifi password in the Key field.  Click Save

The controller will now take your wifi information and attempt to connect to the router.  If it fails, try resetting and repeat these instruction.

If success, connect to your wifi router again.  Type http://my.bluespray.net in your browser to access your controller from now on.

Help / Re: Board power capacity
« on: June 20, 2017, 05:27:21 PM »
The controller's firmware does not set any limit.  The only limitation is the power supply and the water pressure.
The power supply is rated at 1A.  The board circuit trace is rated at 2A.
