Hello, we are new here and wish you like our product.
Available on Amazon now!
Hi @AquaMutant and thanks for sponsoring R2R your controller looks really sleek!
Looks like a good modern alternative to the defunct Digital Aquatics RKL, good job AquaMutant!
Question though, will you eventually have add on module capabilities for PH monitoring?
Are the magnetic temperature probe replaceable since they eventually malfunction?
Is this an app based software for a mobile device? If so, is it IOS, Android or both?
PH, water level and senility stand-alone products in 2019, add these sensors through wifi with the same app.
All our probes use 3.5mm phone jack for easy replacement, besides ph (BNC).
Yes, native app for both, available on App Store and google play market now. Search “FishCare”.
the spec looks great!
good to have 3.5mm con...
Is it possible to access the controller without the app? Could we use a web browser to go to the controller's IP and program it through a web page?
must be app, "FishCare" is native app (both iOS/Android), creates TLSv2 tunnel within AWS and teffo.
some devices' security is weak, even doesn't have SSL agent through browser (https).
the advantage of native app are security and more efficient, etc.
bad is waste lots of engineering resource, especially Android OS.
The downside of an app that works the way you describe is that it requires your servers to work. If you go out of business, this controller is now a brick without the backend infrastructure. I'm not wishing ill on your company, but it's unfortunately the reality of the modern world.
Is there a plan to implement a local-only mode that can run without external servers and infrastructure?
We do implement the local mode while internet stop working, ie., wifi disconnected, server broken, forget to pay the bill to isp, teffo works still based on the rules setup before. teffo always saves rules in local memory as backup.
Only set/change the rule/socket/parameter requires server and internet. once above items been set, leave it, teffo works no matter backend infrastructure is there or not.
At last, honestly, team do think about set/change the rule/socket/parameter in local mode based on IP, however, it seems complicated to most of people, even find out what’s the correct IP.
My point of view, modern world needs easy way to get things done with security, then server can’t be avoided sometimes. You really bring me a good topic, will think about it seriously, thank you!
AquaMutant doesn’t have any physical server, we run application and service on Amazon, so don’t worry about server stop working.
Good information, thank you. I think you're right, having the app/server setup that you mention is the easiest for users. That still leaves the problem of what happens if your company goes out of business. You might just choose to retire this product line years down the road and no longer provider server backend access for this controller. I don't personally like products that tie me to any company's IT infrastructure if I can avoid them.
An option for local mode would be nice. Still, I'm sure this will be fine for most users
Agree with you, an option is good to users, will think about how to run local mode through app without any security concern.
Welcome AquaMutant teffo - Good looking controller!!
question, constant temp controller, how?
Great news for all hobbyists, affordable and decent feature sets. Thank you for sponsoring reef2reef
When 1st time set up teffo on App, it request to input the highest and lowest temperature for mobile notification. Therefore, when user setting at temperature control system, it could set up when to start / stop heater and cooler.
Look's nice, how many times it will inform by mobile when temp abnormal?
Any videos or better pictures of the temp sensor and where does it plug in to for power?
Mobile notification every time when temperature abnormal once now. We are consider to design for user to set up the alarm time and times in near future.
