SOFTWARE RELEASE NOTES

For questions concerning any release, contact Customer Support at:

888.936.9277 x2  support@smartbeecontrollers.com

Added Features:

  • Two device types now defined for CO2 control: a CO2_EMMITTER Appliance and a CO2_EVAC Appliance.
    • Having these two device types will now allow the user to set and maintain their desired CO2 level during daytime operation (lights on) and set a maximum CO2 level (24 hrs) at which point the room will be exhausted, in a simpler control room view.
    • Typical setting for desired day time CO2 level is between 1100-1400ppm. The Evac level is defaulted to 4500ppm but is adjustable to a lower level if required. Alerts are still sent when  CO2 level goes below the desired setting and now when the CO2 level hits the Evac threshold.
  • Data Export
    • The ability to generate reports (.CSV format) for all data types
    • Chose the number of days for the data collection
    • Chose the interval of time between data points
    • Notification that report is competed
    • Higher communication speed between devices and controller
    • On newer Hive Controllers a 10-fold increase in data transfer enabling a larger number of devices to be connected to a single Hive without loss of data.
    • Some older Hive Controllers can be upgraded to take advantage of this capability.
    • Improved RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) calibration
    • RSSI now more accurately represents radio signal strength at the Hive Controller.

Bug Fixes:

  • Humidity alerts now includes time of alert.
  • SS1 (model 100105) and SS4 (model 100106) software circuit breakers can now be reset from the Hive Controller.
  • Single notification sent after restoring from backup vs. multiple
  • In a reactivated room threshold(s) return to original set value
  • Miscellaneous fixes not impacting user operation
