It appears after research, that if the opensprinkler system doesn’t have internet access, functionality is broken. Is there a mechanism for opensprinkler to me managed via remote device over ethernet (wireless or wired), where internet access is not available?
This is a pretty frustrating situation. I don’t mind requiring internet access for setup, but once the device is in the field, I need it to operate no matter what state internet connectivity might be in. Without it, I’ll find another solution.October 9, 2017 at 3:53 pm #48016
How did you research the conclusion of broken in your research?
The device will work offline, to be clear. Without a network the following items are lost:
– Network management
– Weather adjustments (rain sensor WILL work)
– DST adjustments
– Sunrise/sunset start and end time support
In this list the only thing that stands out is the DST adjustments. Is that your issue?October 9, 2017 at 4:36 pm #48017
I believe the network management piece is the problem I have. The device will use the schedule already defined.
I want to be able to browse to the device and tell it to shut off or turn on the schedule, or to even just change the schedule. It appears to prevent me from doing so.October 9, 2017 at 4:58 pm #48018
Ah I understand now, the UI is hosted on the Internet by default however any of our packaged applications allow use on a local network without any Internet being required.
Also, you can download the HTML files to your computer and just open the
index.htmlin your browser and it will work without Internet access. This is also true if the site becomes cached in your browser.
For more advanced cases, the files can be self hosted: https://openthings.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/5000164006-using-a-different-server-for-ui-assets
I hope this helps!October 10, 2017 at 10:25 am #48021
This looks like it may address my concern. I’ll report back when I get a chance to drive out there and reconfigure the system using this documentation.October 10, 2017 at 1:25 pm #48024
For the case you specified initially “Also, you can download the HTML files to your computer and just open the index.html in your browser and it will work without Internet access. This is also true if the site becomes cached in your browser.”
Where can I download these files from? https://ui.opensprinkler.com/js? Do I have to wget that fileset, or is it literally just index.html only?October 10, 2017 at 5:47 pm #48030
The link I posted above has the zip file listed under step two as UI.zip.
