In firmware v5.59 we have added a new functionality - 8 virtual input/output ports ('Virtual IO'). These are software registers that allow you to set a value, use it in Macros conditions and actions, and generate Automation events when it changes. I.e. they are absolutely analogous to hardware ports in terms of functionality and allow the creation of even more complex automatic tasks. After restart their values are not preserved, but reset to zero.
'Virtual IO' are available via Web, MQTT (write/read) and ModbusTCP (read only as 32bit registers).
The applicatio note "Thermostat with permission" is updated again, with the added use of 'Virtual IO', which allow the inclusion of 'Timers' without using an additional relay.
Also new is the delay in applying an ON command to Manual/Toggle outputs. With the "Delay[s]" parameter in 'IO Settings' you can set a delay ("filter") in the action of the output: in case you have a sequence of fast ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON, the output will only the last "ON" after the delay time has expired is applied. This way you will neutralize the many switchings that are not recommended for some loads (contactors, electric motors, etc.). The same field is used in which the pulse length is entered for outputs of the "Impulse output" type.
In the new firmware v5.58, we have added two new steps "EXIT IF" and "Skip next step IF". With them you can implement a branch in the action of the macro depending on the state/value of the input/output channels. These steps use two cells, in the second ("IF value") the value to be compared is set.
The new functions in the macros allow a more optimal solution to the task of implementing a thermostat with permission (for example, air conditioning with deactivation when the window/door is open). The idea is developed in the updated version of the application document
In this version, the "Circular event log" option has been added in the "I/O Settings" menu - through it you can implement a circular buffer in the Event Log and thus always see the latest events (in this mode, there are 50 of them). This mode is suitable for systems with an established mode of operation, and the previous one (buffer with filling) - for the analysis of a rapidly passing set of events.
Fixed some bugs also.
To improve the security of access to the built-in server services (SNMP, HTTP, MBUS) we also added a new IP filter to define global and up to 3 IP addresses access to each service.
In MQTT, the concept of Topic has changed - now you can set the entire field individually (and not, as before, only the part after "Netcontrol/"). In addition, the field has an increased size - 55 characters.
Fixed some bugs.
