2016 Update


#1

Hi from down under and other side of the date line… Good news is there seems to be no y2.016k bugs and things chugging along about the same.

Could we have a bit of an update and or rough game plan thanks ?

  • I have taken the 2x Pi2 off line 24/7 for now as the two Pi between them were making significant inroads to traffic my humble data caps. But I am booting them daily and ‘checking in’ to see if things look like they have changed or updated. Main thing I am tinkering with daily is trying to get the Generic GPIO pins working:
  • Have not been able to add any DO outputs direct off the pins for a while now.
  • DI and Pi pin header inputs work between ‘some’ to ‘most’ of the time when adding. Have not managed more than 1 input per pi (including renaming)
  • DI removal a little sluggish but quite acceptable given, no doubt the ‘clean up’ process required.

As before, documentation and or a mini clip of screen capture / 5 frames showing intended functionality and or setting up things in general would be great. If I get time I may screen capture the add DS18B20 process into a modest GIF.

Remote Access:

  • I have wanted to get back to the remote desktop functionality as that was seriously good while it was working. Is this turned off for now ?

Serial port:

  • This would be VERY Nice to carry on my LoRaPIC R&d project. I have managed some significant radio around corners and 10km maxing things out from dashboard of a moving vehicle off a 3xAA battery and just a single 163mm strand of CAT wire… Would love to get this streaming for you guys to look at.

W.r.t LoRaWAN ideas…

  • Will there be / I recommend a geolocate / GIS / map gadget ? E.g. my wild life, enviro, sensors ping out fixed or dynamic Lat,Lon,Ele and propose that the gadget on a map auto locates and just blats the live variable as a pointer, Value, animated Icon that turns into a plot on hover etc…

Anyway…
Welcome to 2016 everyone :slight_smile:

Still having issues with remote access?

Remote access was just me…
I had a pop up blocker but perhaps this needs mention in the guide book as it fooled me for weeks

Thankyou for the Video. Is there a general library of video clips or a link / topic forum area ?

The adding Generic GPIO video is pretty much as I am doing this end. No surprises there. You just have a LOT more response and very short delays between things being clicked and things. As per this mornings post:

  • Generally very slow and unreliable adding of any generic device
  • Dashboard control of devies I have managed to install are 30% functional (per click / activation / toggle of button etc)
  • Dashboard often just sits timeing for a long time with no error message
  • The GPIO tab is slightly more responsive but just as un reliable / slow as above but it Does Have correct error messages e.g. an error message and or times out after 10 seconds max

I will use the same OP you are using and toggle the same IP/OP you have used at the start of the video to see if that makes any dirfference tomorrow.

Otherwise feel free to contact me via e-mail and have a go at adding IP / OP from your end to compare notes. Login is same as I forwarded a few weeks back.

Adding BMP180 Barro Pressure and Temperature and DS18B20 temperature is instant / FAST :slight_smile: Lack of performance on Generic IP / OP just a mystery for now !
