Release IC-W1-1.2.2784 BETA

Release IC-W1-1.2.2784.

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.

 

Android App Version 1.6 Released. Adds Cloud Support !!

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:

 

cloud.irrigationcaddy.com

 

NOTE: This is a major update, and it requires the caddy information ( IP Address, Port, Version ), in the app be rebuilt.

iPhone App V1.4 Notes

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.

IrrigationCaddy App for Control4 Available on 4Store

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, …).

NOTE: Requires driver name: “IrrigationController_HTTP_IrrigationCaddy_ICEthS1.c4i”

Control4 Integration

We are pleased to announce we have a new Control4 driver for the IrrigationCaddy S1 which we just released.
It is available from Control4 from the online database. It was listed under “Device Type = Others”, and “Manufacturer = IrrigationCaddy.com”.
We will also be releasing a 4Store app soon, which will replicate almost all the same capabilities we offer on the mobile apps for iPhone and Android, but Control4 users will be able to use it from their 7″ displays, and other form factors.

IrrigationCaddy now has a Twitter account

We have finally relented and joined Twitter! I know we should have probably joined a long time ago but here we are.

We will use it mainly to communicate product updates, new features, new products, etc. We are hoping that this will make it easier for those of you that use twitter to quickly learn of what is going on, and hopefully you will find it useful.
