BETA Testing is here …

Hello Testers,

In order for this to work, and by that I mean me supporting you in a contructive way, I have a few guidlines that I need you to follow.  Considering that I support people from all over the world, I need a constructive way to manage problems.  And here is how.  To post a question or bug against this project, please register for an account at bitbucket.org.  Once you have done so you will be able to create “issues” that we can track and work through.  You can create issues or questions here … https://bitbucket.org/michaeljvdh/octavia/issues?status=new&status=open

If I discover a bug or a probem, or have a question …. what do I do ?

If it’s a bug, please use the selector and report that it’s a bug (program broken, install errors, instructions), if it’s a question please select task, enhancements and proposals are also available.

How to install ?

The install documentation can be found on the Wiki of the project at https://bitbucket.org/michaeljvdh/octavia/wiki/Home if your not used to working with git projects, I advise you to learn through this.  It’s all being done this way nowadays.  The installation documentation should work, if not please log the issue as per above. Note that the User Guide, Technical Guide are still to be completed.  However the website is fairly intuitive, Important: Keep a lookout for ? mark symbol in the site, it explains what’s happening on each page.  This should get you going.

If I get lost !

Some essential knowledge

The whole build is using NATURAL PIN numbers, as in Board Mode, meaning the pin numbers take precedence NOT the traditional GPIO numbers.  When you add GPIO’s you will see help icon on the top right and it will show … the numbers in the center of the image are whats used in this entire system.

You have to register Raspberry Pi – GPIO’s or ESP GPIO’s before you can setup rules or trigger relays and so on …

As for ESP8266’s here is the numbering used, again .. when you add an ESP GPIO there is a question mark on the top right that will show you a help screen to remind you …

The .ino file for the ESP8266 can be found on /var/www/html/install/wemos_esp8266_octavia and the file is wemos_esp8266_octavia.ino

You will need to edit the file, give it a dns name, and give is your SSID/Password for your local WiFi network.  Remember that it’s only a 2.4GHZ device and NOT 5GHZ

Good luck.
