SOFTWARE RELEASE NOTES

For questions concerning any release, contact Customer Support at:

888.936.9277 x2  support@smartbeecontrollers.com

Added Features:

  • PCC8 Support [NH-148, NH-149, NH-150, NH-151, NH-175]. Creates a software release for DCC8s used in UL Listed Panels. When turning on multiple DCC8 ports, provides for a fixed delay between each port turn on, to limit inrush current. If the port has a fixed time to be turned on the startup delay, if any, is added back to the active port time, to ensure events such as irrigation run for the user specified time.

Bug Fixes:

  • [NH-186] Reservoir temp is only in Celsius
  • [NH-187] Temperature dead-band slider is incorrectly in Celsius
  • [NH-190] RSSI requests back up in command queue
  • [NH-193] Make use of DCC8/PCC8 on Time parameter
  • [NH-199] Log the start reason prominently
  • [NH-200] Less work for Node Identify
  • [NH-202] Modify info text for Scheduled Reports
  • [NH-203] Reports — can’t create multiple reports for one room and a given interval
  • [NH-204] Report records empty lines if there’s no data
  • [NH-236] Update wipes out completed reports
  • [NH-205] RSSI stops updating
  • [NH-206] Add S2C HW type
  • [NH-231] Graph data is very slow
  • [NH-233] Graph: change “ALLOW” to “PREVENT” by default
  • [NH-234] Spurious dupe report warning
  • [NH-235] Report headers don’t match data columns
  • [NH-237] Add VPD column to reports
  • [NH-240] Add DHCP/static to system info

Earlier Releases

Version 1.6.0 of the HiveOS was released on January 14, 2020. New features included:

  • 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.
