    Seems to be functional this morning. Layout changes, but everything seems to be there and running.

    Setting temp does not work in LEDE Reboot SNAPSHOT r5264-94491a1571 / LuCI Master (git-17.293.52428-5e28002)
    The API key is not set by PitDroid and there is no place to set it in PitDroid.....

    Will this be updated at some point?

    Jerry

    Edit: it appears the API write is just broken by comments on github........

    Great app anyway at least we can read the data.

    Has anyone experienced PitDroid crashing the heatermeter remote monitoring?

    I was running mine for a good while just monitoring via my brower. But once I opened and logged in via PitDroid, it crashed something and the only was to reconnect with the browser or put drops was to unplug the heater meter.

    I lost track of pit droid when it changed to a format that limited the setpoint to 350F unfortunately. I do a lot of higher heat cooking as well as low and slow, but pit droid doesn't play nice with temps above 350. Wish it would....

    I just popped it up and it doesn't seem to have connected, ip is correct. IDK if this is the latest release or not, will check up on that...

    I have gotten used to working with the regular HM gui on my smartphone, works out pretty good, but I do have a large phone/screen. Which makes me think, once upon a time I had a crappy phone and recall there was a "light" HM gui for "clever" phones, wonder if that still exists? (Bryan?)

    EDIT: Just uninstalled and reinstalled, does not connect. IP and open ports verified. I am signed up as a BETA tester if that matters.

    I created the Roto Damper, RD3, HMv4.2 sliding back case, "air-burner" and the "ping-pong" valve in my quest for delicious "set and forget" BBQ.

    yep. For me to get it to connect i have to clear the cache and data then re input my ip address, and it only stays connected for a bit before it crashes the HM. What browser are you using for the HM UI?

    Havent actually used it, but played with it and it seems to work. Doesnt always set the set point which is a little frustrating. And then alarm function seemed to kind of lock it up one time. To clear that just restarted app.

    Seems simple, clean, functional.

    I don't have access to my smoker right now, so I haven't really been using my Heatermeter. That said, I'm not sure how PitDroid could crash the Heatermeter, I'm just using the normal API calls. Maybe there's some kind of bug that's causing it to access it too frequently? I can take a look.

    And Ralph, if you want a peak temp higher than 350 just change it in the settings.

    Thanks for the tip on the min/max settings, however, I have changed the max setting but the scale did not change on the dial? I still can't get it to connect even though I can connect to the HM via web browser from the same device? Last update shows no data, temps do not display on the dial, changing the setpoint with the app has no effect on the HM.
    I am happy using the web interface on my smartphone, don't really need the app, but I figured I would report the issues I am seeing in case there is a problem with the app that needs to be addressed.
