Re: BCS 482 Hard Fail: Lost Connection

There is definitely a glitch here and we are working on isolating it. I have a new firmware that I'm testing to see if it fixes it.

Re: HowTo: Voice control of BCS with Amazon Alexa

V3 is much better for a lot of things. I use it already for home automation but I haven't had time to re-do the BCS control to be compatible. I'm actually thinking of writing a plugin for an open source home control program called OpenHAB. Having the BCS tied to that would give BCS users customizabl...

Re: BCS 460 Dead?

Plug the BCS directly into your router for troubleshooting. No direct connect and no tp link. Search this site for people having issues with TP links. Never used one myself, but they've seemed to be problematic at times.

Re: BCS 460 Dead?

How are you connecting? Router, direct, ?? After firmware update, you will default back to DHCP. Are you using the 4.x locator to see if it is on the network? (3.x locator does not work). Did you actually go to 4.0.0 or did you use the latest 4.1.1? Only time I've heard of a device getting corrupt d...

Re: BCS 460 Dead?

No lights sounds like a power supply issue. Have you tested the output of the supply? Have you tested the output of the BCS with the supply attached?

Failed firmware updates are very rare and wouldn't be dead with no lights on.

Re: Open source the UI JavaScript App?

The BCS is not an open source product. There are plenty of ways to have a customized BCS UI. Have you looked at hooking into the UI with the "Advanced JS" option? You can also use something like "Fiddler" to save all JS and HTM files from a BCS session and edit the base UI and even serve it up from ...

Re: Condensing my Boil Process Down

You can re-use timers at each state, so each hop time can reset as the states progress. I personally use one process just for additions. I have a boil process that once it reaches boil, then the boil process kicks off the hop addition process. I feel it is cleaner and easier to manage with separate ...

Re: HowTo: Voice control of BCS with Amazon Alexa

You could always use a dynamic DNS service and point the Lambda function to that name instead of an IP. For a while they weren't letting you select V2, so good you were able to do so. If I get time one of these days, I'll update it for V3. Not really sure how many people actually use it.
