Multicast discovery?


#1

Is there a feature on the road map to allow local controller discovery/control via multicast? It would be super cool to fire up a manual zone with an interrupted Internet connection.


#2

@plainsane No plans in the near future. We do have a open API if you want to write your own mashup.

Let us know if you have any other feedback or questions.

Thanks and have a great night!

Thanx, I was more interested in local control. Is it safe to assume if the Internet is down, the device does not run? Or is the schedule processed on local hardware?


#4

@plainsane If the internet is down, we will run the last programmed schedules just as would a normal non-connected controller.

Let us know if you have any other questions or feedback.

Thanks!

what about stop/starting zones with an interrupted internet connection, but a local wifi network? Can the iro still be managed/controlled?

No.
