New features:

  • Travel time (this mode is not publicly available - please contact us for more information) rounding up now
  • Changed default values of Heartbeat 2 registers

6.0.156

New features:

  • GPIO functions upgraded to the GPIO_MAP - more efficient settings

Fixed:

  • All new alerts cancel all pending repeating alerts

6.0.145

New features:

  • Reed switch can now be in interrupt mode instead of pooling - instant reaction (turned on with register 0x37 to value 0xFF)
  • GPIO functions - the possibility to add any sensor to pins on the board (project-based only)
  • Legionella mode (not publicly documented, please contact us if you're interested in using a legionella prevention device from us - project-based)
  • Failsafe - a very important function that makes sure the device cannot be in a state where it's not possible to change the settings (e.g. button is disabled with no downlink requesting heartbeats - the firmware automatically detects the button being disabled and turns the heartbeat on etc.)
  • Alert repetition function of events implemented

Fixed:

  • Periodic temperature independent event no longer freezes when the aggregation is changed
  • Reed counter events now sent correctly based on the time trigger

Newly introduced issue:

  • New alerts do not cancel all pending repeating alerts (indefinite sending)

6.0.119

New features:

  • Better consumption in devices with the power amplifier (RC2/4)

6.0.117

New features:

  • Periodic temperature independent event 0xBA (set with registers 0x7E and 0x7F)
  • Added hot bitturned on with register (bit 1 of register 0x56) - this moves the temperature range up by 35°C and allows reporting higher temperature than 87.5°C

  • New event: 0x89 Battery low reporting low battery voltage
  • Independent accelerometer events (bit 0 of register 0x56) send message as Trace me mode instead of Track me now - this means that in addition to 0x20 and 0x21 events (Start and Stop of movement), 0x22 is sent as well (Tracing tag)

Fixed:

  • Monarch: Register 0x6B has a correct default value now
  • Monarch: Zone switch timer to change RCZ fixed

  • Added Heartbeat 3 cross-mode functionality: if the device is in a standard WiFi mode, 3 MACs are sent, if in a WiFi Atlas mode, 2 MACs are sent and if in a WiFi Precise mode, 5 pointers with RSSI are sent (just like the original modes behave)

Fixed:

  • Fixed the Put me back mode issue introduced in 6.0.45
  • Fixed the wrong event sent by long press in Press me WiFi mode
