Im running the latest hardware and firmware version 4.0.0
Ive just fitted a button to the unit and the aim of this was to toggle modes between eco and normal.
I cant find any documentation on what the button behaviour should be but what I am experiencing seems a bit odd.
When I single click the button I get no change. When I double click it I get a change to "manual override" but also this seems to reset the wifi enabling the hotspot. Other settings are retained.
Any thoughts? is this a bug?
The button processing has just been moved from the OpenEVSE controller to the WiFi, there are a couple of known issues (see below). The button does not toggle between eco and normal but that is a good idea, it currently is an override for START STOP timers.
glynhudson released this on Feb 17
In this significant update to the control of the LCD display and timer functions. V4.x now includes timers for LCD units with or without the real-time clock (RTC) hardware.
IMPORTANT: Breaking change! This release recommends a minimum of 7.1.2 of the OpenEVSE controller firmware, some advanced features do not function on older firmware.
Instructions on updating the OpenEVSE firmware see How to Load OpenEVSE Firmware (WinAVR)
openevse_wifi_v1hardware has replaced the
openevse_huzzah32_idfis now the default firmware build target
Is there documentation as the OP mentioned that describes the expected function of the button? If I buy it, what will it do for me.
The button documentation shows the button connected to the LCD module, does it now need to be connected to the Wifi module instead?
Is it possible to just read the status of the button so that its function can be control by my external controller (Home Assistant for example)?
I have the "Advanced Series Controller 40/48A" purchased about 8 months ago. It came without the button. I want to switch out of Divert mode if someone presses the button.
