Adds ability to set the starting day when using the “Every X Days” type of scheduling a program.
This feature allows for the type of water restrictions requiring a specific internal ( i.e. 14 days ), and a specific day ( i.e. Tuesday ), like “Every other Tuesday”. This can be accomplished by selecting “Every 14 Days” and then selecting when the 14 days should start. This release adds this ability.
The Cloud Service as well as the mobile apps do not yet support this feature.

We have released version 1.6 for the Android app, which now provides Cloud support for both the ICEthS1 model, and the IC-W1 model.
To start using the new features you must have a Cloud capable firmware on the Caddy ( all new Caddys ship with the latest firmware ), and have a cloud account setup at:
NOTE: This is a major update, and it requires the caddy information ( IP Address, Port, Version ), in the app be rebuilt.

A new firmware is available for the IC-W1 unit.
These are the most important changes in this release:
- Changes the initial WiFi mode from an AdHoc network to a SoftAP. Allows Android and Windows 8.1 to connect to the initial “IrrigationCaddyAP” SSID
- Improved Cloud connectivity performance.
- System ON/OFF switch would sometimes not change when switched from the cloud. Fixed.
- The “is Rain Sensor Normally Open” setting performed the opposite action implied by the label. Fixed.
We are happy to announce that our Cloud service is now live! You can get started by going to Cloud Features. There you will find more information and a link to create an account. Now you can truly communicate and manage your IrrigationCaddy at home or on the go. Anytime, Anywhere!
NOTE: The IC-W1 units ship already enabled with the ability to connect to the Cloud. There are also Cloud firmwares for the S1 but they are still in BETA, and they don’t ship with the Cloud enabled. If you would like to try it on the S1 please upgrade the firmware.
We are pleased to announce the release of the new IC-W1 WiFi IrrigationCaddy! With built in WiFi and expandable zones, this is the model many of you have been waiting for. You will still have the ease of use and user friendly interface of the S1 model but there are many new features including:
- 11 Zones with expansion capability up to 43
- 6 Programs
- Multiple start times
- Flow Sensor port
- Rain Sensor port
- Manual control at the unit
- Water usage logging

The iPhone App V1.4 release on Sep 12th 2013 adds a new field to the caddy configuration. The field allows the user to select the Firmware Version.
When upgrading to 1.4 make sure you select the correct Firmware Version for your caddy or the app might not display the zones properly.
New Config Field V1.4
As promised we have released an app for the IrrigationCaddy S1 that works on Control4 systems. The app is available from the 4Store.com website.
This is the Lite version, and it runs on 7″ Control4 tablets. It is available for free, and it allows the user to start and stop zones, as well as monitor the progress on the active zone.
In the coming months we will also be releasing the full version of the app. This app will allow for full control of the caddy, (scheduling, status, …).
