6.2. Outputs

This is where each of the four 12V outputs can be configured to any of the following type:

  1. Water (pump or valve)
  2. Fan
  3. Light
  4. Not used

For example:

There are 4 widgets per outputs:

From left to right, top to bottom:
     • Type selector
     • Auto switch
     • Manual button
     • Output parameter

Let’s review each of them.

  1.Type selector

By default, all outputs are not used. Press selector to select the type:

2. Auto switch

Each output type can be operating either with constant parameter or automatic control.
After setting type, output is working by default with constant parameter (auto OFF).

Example: you choose OUT1 as fan and set slider value to 50%.
Fan is constantly running at 50% speed.
Once auto is enabled, slider is colored and the control is operating, according to measurement and user-defined parameters.
More details about automatic control on corresponding chapter.

3. Manual button

Manual button is active only when pressed. It works with all types and activates output to 100%.
Example: you choose OUT1 as water then press manual button, pump/valve is powered (even from thousands of kilometers away)*

4. Output parameter

The slider is grey by default and colored when auto ON. 
Example:

For each output type, the slider is used for a different parameter:

Notes:
If auto switch is OFF, water parameter is not used.
(Moisture min is only for automatic control)
If auto switch is ON, fan parameter is not used.
(Fan speed is controlled by mainbox)

Best advice to be familiar with all this is to play around with the app.
