Do you have any plans to enabled cloud-based management of OpenSprinkler? I’m aware you can setup remote access, but it’s really complex for many of us non-technical users. And I don’t like the idea of opening up a port to my home network. Ideally I would like to have my settings available in the cloud where I can make changes, and have the device get updated periodically.October 14, 2014 at 10:46 pm #33957
Yes, development is under way to enable cloud-based management. This is likely going to take a while until we figure out all the technical details in the firmware. I can’t provide an accurate estimate of when this will be available, but we are definitely working towards it.October 20, 2014 at 5:42 pm #34080
Hopefully, this will be optional, and local-only configuration will always be supported as well.October 21, 2014 at 12:07 pm #34095
Local-only configuration will always be supported. The way this works is that the controller will establish a persistent connection with the cloud server, and monitor requests from the cloud server. At the same time, connections through directly typing in the IP address will still work.October 22, 2014 at 12:32 am #34098
Will the “cloud” functionality (i.e. maintaining that persistent connection) be able to be disabled by the user?January 30, 2019 at 3:47 pm #53909
Is there any more development on this feature please? It would be great do not need DynDNS and to be able to connect IOT like or Cloud like to my Opensprinkler.February 15, 2019 at 9:38 pm #54022
Yes, an initial version is being included in the upcoming firmware 2.1.9. It will be roughly similar to OpenGarage, which uses Blynk’s cloud management. Because OpenSprinkler user interface is much more complex (such as the programming interface), the initial cloud-based version will probably not support all features, but will allow you to monitor status and trigger a program to run or stop. Setting programs and checking log data most likely will still have to rely on local network access.April 11, 2019 at 10:20 am #59676
Hi, I’m writing from Tyrkey. I have a few questions. Are you planning hardware modifications? For example, processor exchange. So you can get rid of a lot of unnecessary material. (For example, Atsamd21g18 and or St32L433 etc.)
Will you include heat and humidity sensors in the system? For underground.May 15, 2019 at 5:25 pm #60385
No hardware change expected at this time — the ESP8266 is a pretty good and low-cost WiFi chip. Since WiFi is quite essential, I am not sure why you would go with Atsamd21g18 and or St32L433 since they would involve two processors (one main processor and one WiFi chip). The beauty of ESP8266 is that it’s a single processor that also provide WiFi capability.
