Firmware 3.00.04. Reboots often. Scenes creation 2 step

Postby ShortBus » Fri Aug 15, 2014 6:35 pm

Hi guys,

Thanks for the most recent firmware update. I have integrated the min temp, humidity, wind and local weather station options into my watering programs.

I can't remember if previous firmware required a 2 step process to create a scene (1st: create an empty file with the new scene name, 2nd: edit the scene) I tried several times to create the actions I desired in the new scene in the "Scene Editor" window and entering a new scene name prior to pressing the "Create Scene" box. The puzzlement for me was that only an empty file would be created without the information that I had put in the "Scene Editor" window. It wasn't until I manually uploaded a file to the HydroFLASH unit through the "File Management" page that I discovered that it was a two step process. Through trial and error I found that I could edit both a blank file and the uploaded file with the "Load Scene" box combined with the "Edit Scene" dialog box. This behavior does not seem intuitive. Just an idea that seemed to follow a more logical process is outlined below. It includes rearranging items on the page "http://192.168.10.120/insteon_scene_edit.htm"

1st item on page: Enter New Scene Name:
2nd item on page: Select Scene to Load:
3rd item on page Scene Editor dialog box
4th item on page: Save Changes Clear changes
5th item on page: Select Scene to Delete

Mind you, this is only a friendly suggestion as I do appreciate the work that you guys have put into this project and the capabilities of the device.

Since updating to the most recent firmware 3.00.04, I have noticed an unusual behavior.
According to my log file, my HydroFLASH unit now reboots often. Is this a desired behavior?

Will address the rebooting behavior first....

No, it should not be rebooting. There could be a number of causes but did this start after you were making changes / uploading files to your scenes directory?

What did you upload and where did you upload it to?

It could be that what you "uploaded" is causing the issue.

Would like to discuss in depth if you have time for a call. Please send support a good contact number and time to call.

Thanks,
Brooks
