iPhone App for the IrrigationCaddy

The guys at www.virtualremotecontrols.com have put together a new iPhone app to control the IrrigationCaddy.

We haven’t gotten our hands on the app yet, but it looks like they have done a great job! The IrrigationCaddy iPhone app seems to be part of a host of other remote control apps designed for home automation type devices.

The picture below will give you a good idea of their handy work, or if you need more details you can go to their site.

Multiple Start Times

We are happy to announce that we are almost done with the “multiple starts” feature.

Multiple starts will allow you to run the same program multiple times during the day. We will have a total of 5 start times. The first one will be mandatory, but the other four can be turned on or off with a checkbox next to the start time.

The calendar also does a good job of representing the multiple start times for a program. I ve set overlapping start times so that you can see what it looks like in the calendar when that is the case. This next view is the “Week” view, and the next one is the “Day” view.

This next shot is for the Day view

We will release a Beta version of the firmware first; we will allow some time to get it stable then we will make it an official release. We are expecting to be able to release the Beta version by the middle of July.
