Has anyone implemented this port to control actions either directly (sockets) or via PL?

I'm planning on adding a large battery backup system and I would like the P4 to shut down all unnecessary activities. I only want only the P4 and return pumps to run in the event of an outage with all else powered off.

I can't find any way to utilize the Power Failure Monitor Port. Iv'e searched the GHL forums, manuals and GCC and can find nothing helpful.

Any advice would be appreciated!

After the power is restored the Doser will need a couple minutes to re-establish a connection.[ it’s been several days, each time it happens I have to connect doser with USB cord and laptop to establish a wireless connection. It’s happened about 5 times since buying it earlier this year.

GCC 1.1.1.6 and packaged firmware required.
Backup settings and Sensor data as usual.

@[email protected] - I was able to get this up and running easily on my first tank without any issues :)

Question, does the 1-10V interfaces get reduced by the % of the Power Cut or that is now the % they will run at?

An Affect Socket State, if it is On does it still do it programming assigned to it in the Switch channels and outlets menu?

I was able to receive a Text Alert, and email of the Power failure (Testing) but I noticed the GHL App did not show that I had lost power, is that expected behavior?
