I am wanting to get a windows tablet and install it on my tank

  1. would like to load code from it and edit code on it as standalone (no pc which sounds easy with the bluetooth but #2 effects option)
  2. would like to have it control and display everything like the portal (not via wireless due to issues on portal and uapp i been having with when trying to switch something and being needed done no questions asked sometimes connection will get lost or times out and/or errors out)
  3. would like to have 1 day graphing of relays,floats,temp,ph,dimming, etc. as a menu and save to memory card up to maybe 1 year saves
  4. wireless is a great idea but need super high reliability dont want issues with connection

Can't really help with the windows tablet, but I did notice that your portal sig hasn't updated since the 23rd. I too was having the same issue as well as drop outs, time outs, etc with the wifi but when I followed this thread and updated the module everything has been rock solid since. Just a thought.

No sir, I don't believe so. Please follow the link above to see the fix. I don't know what effect that will have on your relay box, but multiple people were having issues with the portal all starting on 12/23, and my experience was that my wifi was much more stable after updating the module.

O ok cool i didnt know i was a new issue that arose ill try that like 2 weeks from now lol i works 12hours a day for 3 weeks no day off lol.

My issue with the relay started that day and it was only relay 2 would not cycle on anymore it said it was on the app but it wasnt on. And that was my heat and i tryed to trigger the relay with a external source of 12vdc and nothing happened still so i chucked it up as bad relay and get to it later then when i pliged it back in the head unit keep flashing and statis and power led would alternate then unpluged and tryed again now none of my relays turn off even when it says they are.

So i thought this was my new issue with the flag email alearts not coming through but the issues with the wifi always being dodgie when trying to turn stuff on and off like i stated earlyer.

So ill try the fix u mention and see what happens and will hope i get lucky and fixes my relay issue that be great but dought it ...

Thanks for letting me know to try this

Yeah, I'm with you. I don't think it'll fix your relay box, but it definitely helped with most of my connection issues. It doesn't fail nearly as much, and the little bit that it does do is expected being downstairs in a cabinet ~ 35' from the router. Good luck!
