    The ability to read current on a OSPi wold also make for a great tool for troubleshooting.

    I was wondering if multiple flow sensors could be wired in a parallel circuit would work providing there was no simultaneous zones running could the OS would read?

    @951calguy: current reading is planned for future OSPi hardware. The current OSPi board does not have current sensor circuitry. The plan for next version of OSPi is to go with unified hardware, where it essentially uses the same hardware as OS3.0 except its ‘brain’ is RPi and not ESP8266. So it will have everything that OS3.0 has, including OLED, buttons, and current sensing.

    @tooljunki: connecting multiple flow sensors in parallel is unlikely to work. Here is the reason: flow sensors generally produce pulsing signals — it’s basically a switch that toggles between on and off, and the frequency depends on how fast water flows. If one sensor stopped at a ‘open switch’ position it’s ok, but if one of them stopped at a ‘closed switch’ position, it will override signals from other sensors. It’s less of a problem if the ‘closed switch’ position is relatively short but it really depends on each specific flow sensor.

    I can’t wait for the next OSPi, once the display,flow, current sensing are integrated it will be a good controller even for light commercial applications.

    I still can’t see the watering volume on the web UI, only once for each day.
    Or do I miss any option?

    This would be great!

    I found out that you can see it only in timeline log.
    You need to program each tap in saperated program. Then you have to expand the time axis, and you can see it on bottum row.
    Not very easy. it was better to have one more column on the table log, but this is the only way I found.
