Is ther an IOS app for iPhone or iPad?
« on: July 07, 2018, 07:41:55 PM »
Looks there was an application some time ago but is not on the appstore anymore.  Is there a way to monitor from an IOS app?
Thanks
Mike

There is no IPad app, AFAIK, to monitor the Classic. In 2015 there was a version of MN’s Local App but it was incomplete. It was removed after a few months.
There may be a newer app version of the Local App.
I created an app for a battery monitor that used the Classic battery voltage and WBjr current along with temperate, SOC and other battery related data that the Classic provides. It worked well until Apple updated to IOS 10 then it failed due to some data framing and timing errors.
Since MN has debugged the Classic Ethernet interface its maybe time to look at the app again 😀

That will be great.
The midniht connectivity has a lot of potential like IFTTT to interface with other smart devices.  Equipment in a smart home could be preventer to turn on or off depending on the capacity and solar production.  Text messages for confirmation and alerts, etc.
With better software, this can be a game changer.

The Apple OS 10 and IOS mobile support to at least monitor remotely should be a given basic feature.

Hope you can revive your code...
Thanks

Look at the Node-Red section in Homebrew software on forums here.  Getting that running and talking to the Classic you could integrate it with smart home stuff you are talking about. You can also get the data from a serial connection to the Classic instead of over IP.
