I’ve ordered an Open Sprinkler Pi but it hasn’t arrived yet. In the meanwhile, I installed the latest firmware version on my Raspberry Pi and am looking at the web interface from my PC. The lower right corner of the home page says version 2.1.11 (2014-12-16). The manual for 2.1.1 chapter 8 says that Station Water Times can be individually programmed to different times. I don’t see that on the 2.1.11 website. I see a single watering time for all active stations.
I prefer the version in the 2.1.1 manual. How do I get that? Do I have to clone a previous commit?
Is the manual for the non-pi version only? When does the pi version get multiple water times? Should I cancel my order and get the non-pi version instead?
I’ve also installed the mobile app on my iphone from the app store. It too only allows a single Station Duration per program. Is there a version that supports multiple durations per program?
The manual you are reading is for the Arduino version (not raspberry Pi) which runs a different firmware than the Raspberry Pi.
There are many forum posts discussing the differences between the Arduino and Pi versions but one of them is the software. The Arduino runs a firmware written by Ray in C++ whereas the Pi software is written by Dan in Python.
The software moves at different paces and are not necessarily inline with each other. With that said, Dan has commented per-station watering is in the works.
My application detects your device and firmware and shows the appropriate settings as needed. Since your using an OSPi, the global watering time is used rather than per-station.
