can someone tell me what happened to the Alert function for rapt brewzilla profiles? back in november i got my G4 and set up a profile with alert. then in mid december when i brewed again the option for alerts is gone. it doesnt ask me if i want to set an alert. and there's no button or menu options for setting up an alert by the user. its like it totally disappeared. do we have any idea what happened?
We are just updating the new alert method at the moment.
Two alert types should happen:
1. Email Alert
- This will obviously come into your email.
2. Push Notification Alert
- This will get pushed to your phone but you must check you have the app installed. Ever now and then some mobile phones will turn off the access to the app. You need to make sure that the app has permissions to give you alerts so if you have lost push notifications on your phone I would check these permissions settings on your phone. It seems when you have a firmware update on the phone this can sometimes change the permissions too.
The new alert method is also being implemented so it's more flexible. For instance the old system only allowed alerts to be sent on the start/end of a step. But now alerts can be set by different events during a step too. So we are also implementing a new more complex profile management to allow for this to.
Then in another few months we will have an additional update that will allow for even more complex profile management. As some of you know we have a digital spunding valve and digital pressure regulator. So when these products are released we need more complex alerts too so when we have a RAPT fermentation chamber or RAPT temp controller profile it can also include settings in the profile to control the pressure settings throughout the brewing process for instance.
The idea behind this is that you can ferment at a certain spunding pressure and then when you crash chill you can then automatically start carbonating the beer in the fermenter and stuff like that.
