Is there a way to monitor 2 controllers from one phone\app?
I have 2 tanks each with their own RA, one has a single relay, the other has 2.
would be nice to swap between them.

Currently I am using the home and away, different ports, but the labels dont line up.

Thanks!

The universal app for iOS supports it and am pretty sure the android one does too.

I have them setup with internal and external individual dns. i use Home with one port and DNS entry, Away with another port and DNS entry. I can read temp and ph, but the labels dont line up unless i change forum login names and resync. not a huge deal but it can be a bit cumbersome

the android app will do the home and away. it's designed for using the same controller currently. so the labels won't change for you. i want to incorporate fully featured multiple controllers but I have not been able to.

yeah, it is. I'm wanting to make it scalable and also clean up the ui a bit. my internal api's i use for various calls for the settings are limited and need work to allow for this. plus i have to allow for automatic updating, notifications, etc...(all the stuff you would expect). when i get this implemented, it will support an "almost" endless amount of controllers.
I'm very slow these days with coding, unfortunately due to my limited time. i know I've said that before.
anyways, that's just some insight.

I totally get it. I was almost completely out of the hobby because of my last job. Now with my new one, i am setting up a second tank for my home office. Stress is a bad bad thing
