So I installed an opensprinkler system only to find out later that it leverages the internet to provide some of the elements on the web page. I installed it at my folks home and they live way off in the boonies where the internet often drops out due to wind and storms. What happens to the interface if the internet isn’t available? Is it still somewhat functional?
I understand the unit operates the set programs with or without a connection. I’m wondering what happens if you want to go into the settings and modify the programs or do other configuration tasks. Is that just a no go without internet? Is any configuration possible without internet?
It is very technical, so I don’t expect anyone to use these commands manually (unless if you write a program to do it).
I am tempted to install a web server somewhere on their property to serve the files. Perhaps I can add it to the ddwrt router I already have installed over there. You ever hear of someone doing something like that?
