Version 1.2.29 out

Dear All,

the new version 1.2.29 has been placed on the Play Store.

It has now a new About dialog, where you can check the version of your software and also read the release notes again, if you missed it.

But more important are following changes:

  • the DIN10V module now supports two modes. The first one is like before, you can use the DIN10V module as a Temperature regulator, assign profiles, etc. The second mode is now a Temperature output mode, where no Temperature profile is assigned, but the temperature is calculated from the 0/1-10V value. You need to define the range of your temperature scale (eg. min: -30°C, max: 100°C) and then the acutal temperature will be calculated based on the measured value and the given range.
  • There has been a bug in the Network Service, which kept the service alive, even when it should have been destroyed. This caused, that even if you quit domRemote, and you did not have a Widget on your screen, and set a Service idle time to not infinitive, the connection to the Domintell Master was alive, and the Service tried to reconnect continously while you were walking on the streets, etc. This resulted probably in some battery drain, and extra network traffic. The bug is hopefully now fixed, and the service should be destroyed after the idle period.
  • Fixed some other FC-s reported through the Android Framework

Hope you enjoy the new features and fixes!

Have a good day!

domRemote v1.1.27 on the Play Store

Dear All,

the new version 1.1.27 comes with a few small changes.

First it gives support for DALI interface module and the DPBL0x buttons (Lithoss range buttons).

Secondly the IP camera handling was modified a little bit. You still can add custom IP cameras, but also the IP cameras registered with the Master are listed now in the Modul list, and you can add the DVIP0x cameras as controller. These cameras support JPG picture, and the URL is also copied into the Controller Editor, meaning you can watch the JPG picture of the DVIP0x camera from domRemote.

On newer Android versions (3.1+, API version 12+) RTSP video stream is also available, therefore you can add IP cameras with RTSP support (MPEG4 video stream). However capturing still images from an RTSP video stream might not work at all, as the code relays on libraries implemented by various manufacturers, so taking a pictrue might work on a Samsung device, but not working on a HTC or so.

There has been some change in the Landscape layout for the 10″+ devices, the listview has been replaced with a 2 column gridview (check out the updated pictures on the Play Store for 10″ tablets). I hope this will give a little bit more overview about the controllers, and give a better user experience.

The AMP modul controller (Radio module) was bad on extra large screens, this has also now been fixed.

domRemote v 1.1.26 is out

Hi Folks,

I just published the version 1.1.26. After a few hours I will also publish the domRemote License Key application. These two work together, so if you would like to purchase the License Key, please first upgrade domRemote to version 1.1.26! With previous versions the licensing won’t work! (if you purchase the license key first by mistake, don’t panic, just update domRemote to version 1.1.26)

I hope everything will be fine, however this is my first application which uses the Google Licensing service, so if something goes wrong, please contact me ASAP: domremote [at] gmail.com

Those who have already an activation key: you do not need to do anything, just use the activation key provided from me.

Regards,

domRemote v 1.1.25 back to the Play Store

Dear All,

please be informed that the domRemote software has been republished in the Play Store (and should be available within hours). It has however a new package, so you are not able to update your existing installation to the new version. Instead back up all your settings and data to your dropbox account or the SD card, uninstall the old version, and install the new version from the play store.

In order to use the full features either you need to buy the domRemote License from the Play Store (coming within a couple of weeks), or if you already had an Activation Key, you still can use this with the application.

To use your free (old) activation key, which you already have, go to the Settings -> Import / Export schema section, there the topmost menu item (Enter free key) is the place where you can enter you free activation key you already have. Should you need an other free activation key, the Device ID is also listed there, contact me for it as usual.

The old activation and payment mechanism is no longer available!!! It has been replaced by the Play Strore licensing.

Should you have any question, you can contact me any time using the support e-mail address: domremote [at] gmail.com.

Version 1.1.23 is now out

Dear All,

glad to announce, that the next version 1.1.23 is soon available from the Play store.

It has quite lot changes. The main changes are:

New features:

– From now on you can add categories to your custom pictures to find them easier

– A new “Voice Recognition” has been built in, so now you can control your devices with voice commands (how to operate see the Configuring domRemote section!

– Implemented a logic which sends regulary a “HELLO” command to the DETH02, which should prevent disconnection of the device from the DETH02

– Added a new option to the Widget settings, from now on you can hide the Clock, Temp, Weather info from the Widget

– There is a new option in the Device settings: Build default hierarchy. You can define a basic hierarchy in your Master. Using this information this can build up the hierarchy from this information. This is a good point to start with the software. First you need however query the module list, then you can build the hierarchy. ATTENTION: this will erase all your previous configuration!

Enchancements:

– Finally added the new Android 3+ style Action Bar to the application, this should help with newer devices where there is no phisical menu button (and in some cases no software menu button either). If you click the upper left “Action Bar Icon”, it will bring you back to your root in the device hierarchy. (the connection and voice command buttons are placed here also)

– Added support to the new Regulation mode in the Temperature handling for the Master software version 1.21

– Added Temperature handling support to the DIN10V module, now you can adjust temperature with this controller from 10 – 99.5 °C, which makes it possible to control a Sauna with this

– Added long-click possibility to the SWITCH type MEMO controller, so long-clicking the SWITCH button brings up a dialog with a DOWN and an UP button, so now you can decide in which direction you want to controll all the outputs connected to the MEMO. This is good if eg. you have a memo, which turns all the lights ON / OFF in you house, however the state is read from one reference output, so you might first need to turn on all the ligths in order to turn them off. Now you can decide in which direction you would like all the outputs to be switched.

Bug fixes:

– Fixed empty custom controller cannot be exited to upper level

– Fixed some Force Close issues reported to Play Store

– Fixed min / max for VARs with LOOP type, where min / max values were not imported properly from a saved schema file

– Fixed Teleruptor (TRP) not working from the Widget

Changes:

– a VERY important change, the LED indicator has been changed. If the indicator is GREEN, this means now that it is TURNED ON, if it is GRAY, it means it is TURNED OFF. (there is NO MORE RED state!!!)

New version

Dear All!

Thanks to one of the domRemote Users the new version will have a cool feature: voice commands. You can lift up your shutters with voice commands, like saying: “livingroom shutters up” (of course not only shutters could be controlled, I try to add almost every controller, where I can build some usable voice command structure)

I hope you will find the new feature useful!

It’s currently in dev state, however small test have been made with very good results, so stay tuned 🙂
