v2.2.0

February 13, 2013

AVTECH Device ManageR v5.6.0 or higher is required for this update. Please be sure any web browsers currently accessing the unit are closed to be sure all files are updated correctly.

  • Added a major new feature to extend the number of Light Tower and Relay options that can be performed when alarms occurs. In previous versions, the Alarm Options and Relay Options pages of the Settings could be used to configure light, audio and relays that should be turned on or off when alarms occur or clear. This applied to any alarm detected by Room Alert 32E, so a high temperature alarm would take the same actions as a switch sensor alarm.

New in Room Alert 32E v2.2.0 is the ability to configure five (5) unique ‘Alarm Profiles’. Each of these profiles define which Light Tower and Relay options should be turned on or off when alarms occur. In addition, each individual sensor can now be configured to use a specific Alarm Profile. This means, for example, the internal sensor could trigger one profile that turns a red light on, another sensor could trigger another profile that turns a relay on, and another sensor could do something else entirely. A great use for this is using one set of relay outputs to turn an air conditioner on when the temperature gets to high, and another set of relay outputs to turn a heater on when the temperature gets too low.

This has always been possible when using Device ManageR in tandem with the extensive monitoring capabilities of the Rooom Alert 32E. With this latest release, these advanced automatic actions can now be configured entirely on the Room Alert 32E with no additional software required. This makes it a great option for remote sites where monitoring via Device ManageR might not be possible.

  • Added the ability to configure the default state for signal towers connected to a Light Tower Adapter (LTA). These default states will be used when a Room
  • Alert 32E is first turned on or rebooted.
  • Added support for controlling the relay built into the Light Tower Adapter (LTA) when connected to the external sensor channel.
  • Added the device serial number to the getData.json output to assist with identifying devices when the default device name has been changed.
  • Added a popup dialog on the Advanced page of the Settings to allow users to resolve a domain name to an IP address. This is useful when a NTP server name is available and needs to be saved as an IP address.
  • Added a button to manually request a time update via NTP on the Advanced tab of the Settings.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause DNS resolution to fail when networking details were provided by DHCP.
  • Optimized the boot process to allow the device to start monitoring sensors and responding to web requests more quickly.
  • Optimized how images displayed on the web interface are stored and cached, allowing for greater stability and responsiveness at higher refresh rates.
  • Renamed ‘Signal Tower’ references to ‘Light Tower’ for consistency with marketing materials.

v2.1.1

October 17, 2012

AVTECH Device ManageR v5.0.3 or higher is required for this update. Please be sure any web browsers currently accessing the unit are closed to be sure all files are updated correctly.

  • Improved the compatibility of the web interface with recent released of Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome browsers.
  • Added an option to the telnet configuration that allows users to reboot the device remotely.
  • Improved the Device ManageR Push functionality so it does not attempt to initialize and make a connection if the feature has not yet been configured.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented the ‘WiSH Options’ and ‘Wish Settings’ tabs from appearing on the Settings screen.

v2.1.0

August 6, 2012

AVTECH Device ManageR v5.0.3 or higher is required for this update. Please be sure any web browsers currently accessing the unit are closed to be sure all files are updated correctly.

  • Added support for custom unit calculations on Analog Sensor inputs. Instead of simply displaying an alerting based on the 0-5VDC input, Room Alert 32W can now calculate the actual reading from the sensor and trigger alerts based on these custom values. For example, if a 20A current sensor is connected to the 0-5VDC input, users can configure ’20’ as the max value and ‘A’ as the unit of measure. Room Alert 32W will then convert the voltage input to the custom scale for display on the Status page.
  • Added the ability to configure the default state of the Relay Outputs when the Room Alert 32W reboots. This allows users configure each relay output to either be ON or OFF on reboot.
  • Improved the web interface to be smaller and more efficient, resulting in faster page loads especially over remote connections.
  • Modified the display of external sensors connected to WiSH Sensors so they are collapsed by default. They can be displayed by clicking the ‘Expand’ label on the WiSH Sensor. This improves the layout of these sensors on small screens and mobile devices.
  • Modified the format of Digital Temperature Sensors so they are the same height as Digital Temp/Humidity Sensors. This avoids spacing issues that can display when a mix of the two types of sensors are connected.
  • Resolved an issue with the ‘auto-update’ feature of NTP so it properly uses the configured NTP update frequency.

v2.0.0

May 11, 2012

AVTECH Device ManageR v5.0.3 or higher is required for this update. Please be sure any web browsers currently accessing the unit are closed to be sure all files are updated correctly.

  • Added support for all modern web browsers. The Room Alert web interface should now be fully functional in all web browsers, including IE8/9, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and others that conform to modern web standards. With full support for Chrome and Safari, the web interface can now also be viewed in mobile devices running Android and iOS.
  • Added support for the new ‘Push’ technology for use with Device ManageR. Previously, Device ManageR would query the device for sensor values at defined intervals. If the device was installed at a remote location, this could cause additional configuration steps because of firewalls that might be in place between locations. The new ‘Push’ technology allows users to configure Room Alert to proactively send sensor updates to Device ManageR at regular intervals. Since Room Alert will be sending data out to Device ManageR, firewall configurations can typically be simpler since outgoing connections are usually allowed. In addition, if Room Alert detects an alarm condition, it will immediately send an update to Device ManageR, regardless of the interval setting. This allows for more immediate notification of alarm conditions that is no longer tied to the Discovery Interval configured in Device ManageR. Please contact AVTECH for additional details about this exciting new feature.
  • Updated the core embedded operating system and network drivers. This should improve the communication between our Room Alert devices and high end network switches to improve interoperability.
  • Added support for the JSONP protocol. This makes it much easier for users to incorporate sensor data from Room Alert devices into their own web pages without the challenges previously posed by cross-domain scripting restrictions.
  • Updated the sensor output to conform to valid JSON formats.
  • Added the ability to configure the date format displayed on the web interface and in email notifications to allow for customization in different international locales.
  • Improved the way time is displayed in email notifications to more fully conform to the RFC standard.
    Added timestamps to the trace output to make it easier for our Technical Support team to identify the timing of certain background activities to facilitate quicker resolutions.
  • Modified the way the Device Name is handled so the Serial Number is used as the default Device Name when factory default settings are reset.
  • Added support for turning the internal relay on the Light Tower Adapter (LTA) on and off.
  • Updated the Status page so refresh rates cannot be configured faster than five (5) seconds. Due to the large amount of data presented on the Room Alert 32E Status page, refreshing the page too quickly can cause requests to back up and appear to stall.
  • Improved the timing of the progress bar used when settings are saved so it completes only after the device has saved the settings and rebooted.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause the Alarm Settings page to not toggle the check boxes properly when switching between the two LTA ports.
  • Updated the Relay Settings page to reset default sensor labels if the settings are saved with the label fields left blank.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause the status icon for WiSH Sensors to show as the default icon unless an alert was in progress. If an alert is configured but not in an alert state, it now correctly shows the green icon.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause WiSH Sensors to immediately trigger an alert when a new threshold was saved.
  • Updated the trace output displayed for web requests to show the IP of the system requesting the page and also the page that was requested.
  • Improved the ability to handle concurrent requests for the Settings page in multiple browsers.

v1.0.1

September 30, 2011

AVTECH Device Discovery v3.1.1 or higher or AVTECH Device ManageR is required for this update. Please be sure any web browsers currently accessing the unit are closed to be sure all files are updated correctly.

  • Resolved an issue that could cause periodic false alarms for the internal Temp/Humidity Sensor. Because of heat generated inside the enclosure, the internal temperature sensor is automatically adjusted down by 7.5° C. In some cases, the alarms were being checked prior to this adjust value being applied. This has been corrected so that alarms are only checked after the adjust value has been applied.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause some Heat Index thresholds to be checked against regular temperature thresholds. Some thresholds were also being interpreted in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit.
  • Added support for the additional relay output included on the Light Tower Adapter (LTA) for use with the Room Alert 32W.
  • Corrected a display issue with the title displayed on the Settings page.
