Hello,
Tried to install the plugin for my opensprinkler 3.0
Unfortunately this failed.
Can somebody explain how I can fix this.

Thanks, see log below for details.

I wish OpenSprinker themselves would support two controllers. I have a controller in the front garage and one in the rear workshop. To far and to much concrete to get them wired all to one controller I hate having to use two separate controllers and use the app separate and everything also. I would like a remote zone controller I guess.

I thought they added remote controller support in firmware 2.1.6? I haven't tried it yet because my 2.1 hardware couldn't be upgraded without special tools. . .

I'm browsing to the forums now to see, but I haven't found anything in the menu of one to add another IP or controller. I very well could be missing it though.

I'm on:
2.1.7
Hardware 2.2 - AC

EDIT:

https://opensprinkler.com/product/opensprinkler/

I see under "Features, Expandable" It says
"8 zones on the main controller; expandable to 56 zones with OpenSprinkler expansion boards. Have more than 56 zones? Our app can manage multiple OpenSprinkler systems for limitless expansion."

So I see the app can connect to more then one controller (not at a time) and maybe that's what you ment, but I mean same results as an expansion board where all the zones show up one controller. Only difference is it would be a IP based expansion board rather then a serial cable I guess. I have internet swich and wifi AP back there already.

I haven't actually tried it yet, so I don't know exactly how it works, but I see some settings for remote stations in the 2.1.6 API document.

It sounds like you can add remote stations to the main controllers programs at least. A change to this feature is also mentioned in the 2.1.7 release notes, but it does appear this could be broken in 2.1.7

https://opensprinkler.com/forums/top...-2-1-7-update/

I have discussed this functionality previously with Ray (OSS developer) so I am pretty sure the main system is supposed to be able to manage remote stations (but I need to get the 2.1.6 firmware on my HW 2.1 OSS first).

Looks like there's a typo in the install.txt file. It's looking for OS_Error.png but the file in the install zip is OS_error.png. Windows isn't as concerned about case sensitivity, but linux is. Hopefully the dev will fix it.

So you'll need to manually copy the files to their correct locations and then go to the Manage Plugins part of Homeseer to activate it.

So I decided to give this plugin a shot on my Zee (linux). I manually installed the plugin by copying the exe to the Homeseer root, the ini to the Config, and the images to "images/OpenSprinkler"

The log is filled with "Error: OpenSprinkler Device is not responding"

Also, I can't get the settings page for this plugin to load. Clicking on the Opensprinkler Plugin's config link causes the page to load forever. The following two errors show up in the log:

Initializing plug-in(2): OpenSprinkler Instance::Object reference not set to an instance of an objectSTACK: at System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy.PrivateInvoke (System.Runtime.Remoting.Proxies.RealProxy rp, IMessage msg, System.Exception& exc, System.Object[]& out_args) [0x00000] in :0

and

OK, I went into the folder and changed the OS_Error.png into OS_error.png.
I re-installed the plugin. Now it worked. However a new problem occurred.
It kept repeating the message;OS-Plugin Error: OpenSprinkler Device is not responding

Code:
Jun-22 20:19:47	 	OS-Plugin	Error: OpenSprinkler Device is not responding
Jun-22 20:19:46	 	Info	Plugin OpenSprinkler has connected. IP:127.0.0.1:40141

Same here. I changed the .ini file with correct ip adress and pswd, but did not help.
