    Restart network on connection loss

    I think I found the potential problem... The Edimax EW-7811Un has an operating temperature range between 32~104°F (0~40°C). It was 25°F last night. Had to reboot between every 1 to 2 hours. Now that the temperature has been above freezing, no network problems (at least I'm not seeing a log of...

    Restart network on connection loss

    Right now I'm seeing this: Version 20141003B Serial checksum errors: 2 ...and it doesn't look like I've had a reboot for a while. - - - Updated - - - My other WiFi connections are operating without problems.

    Restart network on connection loss

    This script is going to be a serious sleep savor! But I noticed that if I use this script, I may not know how bad my network connection is. The script is doing something with "logger". Where are the logs stored? Where do I go to view the log?

    Ice Build Up

    Since it was the middle of the night and I wanted to get back to sleep, I sprayed some silicone. This seems to have worked, or coincidence (I haven't had time to lookup the freezing point). The source of the moisture puzzles me. I am seeing some puddles below the egg's damper, but not...

    Restart network on connection loss

    Upon losing wireless network connectivity, is there a feature or custom script that can automatically restart the network? I keep losing the wireless connection using a USB wireless adapter (Edimax). It happens every few hours. I pull the plug and reboot to reconnect. I'd also like to find a...

    Ice Build Up

    I'm doing a cook with the "offset rotary valve" and noticed ice build up, the rotating arm freezing, and not moving. Anyone else have this experience? Solutions?

    PitDroid: Connection Issues

    What are the steps to troubleshoot PitDroid not connecting to the Heatermeter? I've been trying to see if there's a PitDroid client log that tells me if PitDroid can find the server, login, or what error messages it might have. I'm also trying to find if there are logs on the Heatermeter server...

    Minimum vent opening setting?

    I get a lot of smoke during the beginning of the cook (the entire neighborhood is getting smoked too). This is when I have to be careful not to snuff out the fire. If I'm the only one having the problem, then I'll try something different. I plan on trying to add wood to the coals later...

    Do you use wood chunks?

    Minimum vent opening setting?

    Thanks for the comment regarding the fan stratup. I changed it to 100%. I really don't want to mess with the Servo Pulse Duration. These numbers indicate the fully closed and open positions, and shouldn't change. I can use the fully closed position to kill the fire. What I wish for is a...

    Minimum vent opening setting?

    Is there a minimum vent opening setting/configuration? Situation: My pit temperature is 5 degrees above target. The WebUI has me believe the fan and the vent are fully closed (shown by 0% in the UI). This will choke my fire. Did I understand the UI correctly? Settings/Configuration: Fan...

    Testing by manually setting probe temperature

    Is there a way to test/simulate a cook by manually setting the probe temperatures? I want to start playing around with writing some custom scripts, and simulate a cook.

    Choked Fire

    I need some help understanding the super ramp down script... It seems like the script will lower the pit temp and alarm by 2ºF every time the alarm is triggered. So if my pit is 350ºF, the parameter inputs would be: sp= 350 al_thresh=350 Then after alarm is triggered it would be: sp= 348...

    Choked Fire

    From what I was able to tell from my cook is the damper/fan is at 0% when above the setpoint temperature. The damper/fan doesn't open back up until below the setpoint.

    Choked Fire

    What is the best way to use the Heatermeter to ramp the temperature down from 350ºF to 225ºF, without choking the fire? On this cook I had the pit start at 350ºF to get a good complete fire going; I want a lot of smoking coals. Then I want to bring the pit to 225ºF for the cook. The problem I...

    Random wireless disconnects

    Possibly a bad wireless adapter. When connected, what is the wireless signal strength?
