I created a google sheet to download and log the RA status. I did his because I wanted to have a longer log than 7 days (I am collecting the data only every hour now), and have my own dashboard with charts to see how things are going.
This is working well. However, I have some questions on what each of the metrics in /status mean. Is there a place where it goes over each of them? Also, where would relay activity show up?
Let me know if anyone is interested, happy to share.
Thanks,
Lucho

Nice :)
It's an XML file with all the parameters for everything we can log.
I don't think we created a document.
Start with the source code:
https://github.com/reefangel/Libraries/ ... i.cpp#L223
If you still unsure of any of them, let us know.

Thanks Roberto. I think I managed to get most of them. I only have a few missing (EM, EM1, REM, R1-8, RON1-8, ROFF1-8, and SF).
The question may be answered with the above, but where can I see relay status? I have 2 relay expansions.

thanks,
Lucho

EM and EM1 are for expansion modules enabled.
SF and AF are for status flags and Alert flags.
REM is for which relay expansion module you have enabled.
R1-8 are the expansion relay boxes without the override flags.
RON1-8 are the expansion relay boxes override flag for always on flags.
ROFF1-8 are the expansion relay boxes override flag for always off flags.
In the Global.h, you will find the bits.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I am clearly beyond my expertise.
Are the bits pieces you quoted above a way to understand what the number means? E.g., a 3 in AF means Leak flag is activated?

The other is in the relays. If i understand well, there are 3 status output per relay box (R, RON, and ROFF), with a number result for each. How do I translate that to knowing the status of each outlet within the relay box?

Thanks a lot!

You will need to learn a little about binary numbers.
Google "binary number".
Here is one hit: https://www.mathsisfun.com/binary-number-system.html
Basically, the decimal number that the controller gives is a decimal representation of an 8bit number.
So, let's say you get 9 on R. The binary representation of the decimal 9 number is: 00001001
So, port 1 and port 4 would be on.
RON and ROFF are the override masks for On and Off.
You need to bitwise AND and OR the masks.
The formula is ( R || RON ) && ROFF
You need to bitwise OR RON and then bitwise AND ROFF. This will give you what the relay ports will be like after the override masks are applied.

Got it. Thanks, I now decoded the relays piece (I am familiar with binary). Is this also the thinking behind the AF and SF?

Lucho, would you be willing to share this google sheet?
Thanks!
