The new version of OpenSprinkler-Firmware WITH extension for the Analog sensor board.

So it goes on

1. Remote access via Openthings.io Cloud

The function is fully explained here.

2. Grouping zones

This new feature replaces the old sequential feature, which allows you to control whether zones are watered simultaneously or sequentially.

With the group function (these are the letters on the circuits), zones with the same group (e.g. all zones with group A) run one after the other, but other zones with different groups (e.g. with groups A, B and C) run simultaneously. Adjustable with the gear.

Also new: Use the menu at the bottom right, “Edit options”, then “System” and “Order Stations by Groups”, then the zones will be sorted by groups.

The groups are determined here:

The P group represents a special case: All zones with group P are watered simultaneously.

3. Weather specific method: monthly values

With this method, the irrigation control can be adjusted by monthly preset values.

4. Analog Sensor API

The function is fully explained here

    Unfortunately reboot mine OpenSprinkler permanently after importing the latest firmware 2.3.0. Wifi connect -> NTP Sync -> Weather Check -> Reboot

    Hi
    I installed the new firmware 2024 – version 2.3.0 (139). It works perfectly.
    The only time the Batten doesn't work is when I want to change a password OpenSprinkler ASB (no response when pressed).
    If I set the opendoor password to a different one (for the simple version Open Sprinkler), it no longer works OpenSprinkler ASB (it is black on the side OpenSprinkler ASB and goes no further).
    Greetings, Frank

    Hi
    I have the new firmware – version 2.3.0. (140) played. Only it's the same as before. ( At the OpenSprinkler ASB the batten doesn't work or is black and doesn't go any further. )
    When operating from the Internet, even from a distance, everything works.
    Greetings, Frank.

    Hello, thank you very much for the current APK. My tablet still has version Android 8.1.0 on it. When I open the APK, I get an error message: “An error occurred while parsing the package. “. (On my cell phone I have an indication of the accuracy of unknown apps.)
    Can I somehow still load the APK?
    Greetings, Frank.

      Hello Frank, I'm afraid there's nothing more that can be done. Your tablet is too old, Android 8.1.0 is no longer supported, we're now at Android 15. That would be like trying to use Windows XP on a PC, but it doesn't work much anymore.
      Nevertheless, I gave it another try and adjusted the APK in the firmware folder again. Please try this version again

    Hello. I've been trying to get this new firmware to work in a VM. Unfortunately the installation fails because there are no GPIOs in the VM and so I get a lot of error messages. I also don't need GPIO because the valves are controlled via MQTT. Is there a way to install the latest firmware without using GPIO?

    Thanks in advance

      OK, but why? You could just use Homeassist and use it to control the valves.
      If you want to customize this, feel free to do so. The software is open source and is on Github.

      “The firmware update can ONLY be carried out via WLAN (for versions lower than 2.2.0.105).” And for the versions above? How does the update over ethernet work, since the update page obv. does not work over ethernet and always exits with the message “check device key” ( hash and clear)?

      • admin
        admin says:

        Yes, above this version firmware update is also working with Ethernet LAN. “Check device key” means password is wrong.

    On the weekend I tried the extended MQTT passwords - the UI got stuck (black screen)! I then saw the 161 - installing it also worked, but the UI still hung -> factory reset. I'm just short on time - should the 100 character tokens go with the 161?
