Ok, I guess I will just have to tinker with it. I see the user manual link is now available. It wasn’t for the 2.1.8 when I originally posted this message but is now.
The manual isn’t really clear on some of what I mentioned which is why I posted the questions. Again I guess I will just have to tinker with it.
From other postings it looks like the Sequential stations only affect other Sequential stations and that Parallel stations will run regardless of what the other stations are set. Which I think is not the best option. I will verify this when I have mine up and running. I have my unit now but decided to order a Pi Zero W and use it as the cost of that unit is nearly the same as buying a nano WiFi dongle.
If the Sequential and Parallel zones run at the same time I will be looking to add a feature to disallow this. Basically force the Sequential stations to only start when no other station is running and only allow parallel stations to run if a Sequential station is not already running. (May add an option to the Sequential stations to force Sequential action regardless) Will have to see how it works.
