Firmware History


Newest release captures all previous feature updates except where noted

Weather Update 12/12/2022

Weather services for prediction, historical and evapotranspiration have been updated to use Apple WeatherKit. The previous service was acquired by Apple and has end-of-life in March 2023.

The weather services are similar but are not identical. There will likely be some differences in the weather forecasts in your area. The calculated evapotranspiration values are very close to each other and over time should provide similar results.

  • Memory optimization for local device and schedule handling
  • Outlets will now turn off based on scheduled time after a controller restart
  • Outlets will update state using read attributes so app outlet on/off is up to date
  • Correct sensor temperature reading near and below freezing
  • Optimize startup and connection sequence, ensures verify step timing during initial device setup is likely to be in-sync.
  • Read Zigbee device model number during join process
  • Quicker startup sync with cloud settings

2.661 released 10/17/2018

Correct device join routine

2.66 released 10/15/2018

Add Hibernate mode, unsecure device rejoin policy changes

  • Hibernate mode for winter use, or to temporarily disable scheduled watering

2.65 released 9/22/2018

Add outlet control, sensor reconnect re-configure, Wifi variable, offline reconnect duration, incoming route handler.

  • Outlet control under devices allows Zigbee outlets to be turned on and off for a duration
  • Sensors will be reconfigured with reporting intervals if they leave and rejoin automatically
  • Wifi variable added so app can list access points and security type
  • During some Wifi reconnect instances the offline duration will be listed in the logs
  • Record incoming Zigbee device routes

2.64 released 8/10/2018

Fix “Offline Run Mode” bug when connection is lost, so the last know schedule is executed correctly.  Update startup initialization, WiFi re-connection and WiFi Reset.

  • offline run mode functionality updated, corrects issue where runlist did not run correctly when wifi was lost

2.52 released 4/1/2018

Major changes to mesh radio protocol for upcoming mesh update.  Also adds new functions to voice services, such as “turn all zones on for x minutes”, or “pause for x minutes”.  Sensor values are now filtered so repeat values are not reported, reducing database size and server bandwidth.

  • expand mesh radio communication protocol functions and syntax
  • calibrate valve current detect at startup
  • update pause, stop function
  • add run all zones functionality
  • filter repeat sensor reported values

2.5 released 9/12/2017

General bug corrections.

  • fix remove devices from table
  • fix schedule in que bug
  • clear memory added to factory reset
