v1.1.1

January 16, 2013

AVTECH Device ManageR v5.5.0 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.

  • Improved the calibration used for the internal temperature sensor. When using a standard power adapter, the internal temperature sensor will now track much closer to an external temperature sensor without the need for an ‘Adjust’ value entered by the user. When using PoE, the internal temperature sensor will be slightly warmer due to heat generated by the PoE converter. When using PoE, AVTECH recommends allowing the Room Alert 3E to run for a few hours to allow the temperatures to stabilize before applying an ‘Adjust’ value in the settings.

If you have previously entered an ‘Adjust’ value for the internal temperature sensor, we recommend resetting this to zero and comparing the internal sensor to an external sensor with the improved calibration included in this firmware update. Once the newly calibrated difference is known, you can enter that in the ‘Adjust’ field in the settings to align the internal temperature with the external temperature.

  • Reorganized the boot order to allow sensor values to initialze more quickly when a device reboots or is turned on.

v1.1.0

December 31, 2012

  • 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 an option to display all sensors or only connected sensors by default.
  • 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 the reset button to not function properly. The reset button can now be used to reboot the unit with a momentary press and to reset the default settings when held for ten (10) seconds or more.
  • Resolved an issue that could cause DNS resolution to fail when networking details were provided by DHCP.
  • Removed the SNMP Trap listener so alarms are not inadvertently triggered when devices send SNMP Trap broadcasts on the network.
