November 19, 2020 – OvrC application updates fixes bugs and improves user experience.
This update includes improvements to Wi-Fi Management and several small bug fixes. The updated web application is available now. Updates to the mobile are waiting on final approval from Android and Apple. Please stay on the lookout for notifications prompted on your mobile device to update your OvrC app.
Wi-Fi Management Improvements
- Added Primary Network Profile to Wi-Fi Management – The new Primary network profile is now the first SSID on all access points and will be applied to both radios. The Primary network profile can only be edited and not deleted.
- New Installs – New projects that are configured using Wi-Fi Management will automatically show “araknis_initial” as the Primary network after import. This network can be edited as needed and applied to all APs assuming you want those settings on both radios. Otherwise, the primary network can be disabled and additional SSIDs can be added and configured as needed.
- Existing Installs – Existing projects that have Wi-Fi Management currently enabled or are enrolled after they have been initially configured will require a new import with this update to OvrC. After the import, the SSID that is the most prevalent across all APs will become the primary network and all other existing network profiles will be listed and available for editing or deleting.
- Added delete network capability. This was in response to customer feedback. The previous method of deleting network profiles was unclear.
- Added error message when SSID count reaches limit per AP.
- Added notification for devices that are in repeater mode. These devices will not receive configuration changes through Wi-Fi Management.
- Added a banner when new APs are added to the network and an import is required.
- Fixed discarding changes so that devices are properly restored to previous network profiles.
- Fixed issue where not all APs receive configuration changes on apply.
- Updated connected client list header to be “Router Client List” instead of “DHCP List” as static IPs are also listed.
- Updated tool tip for status on Router Client List to be more accurate. New text reads “Currently connected devices will display a green icon. Devices that have a DHCP assignment but are not currently connected will display with a gray icon”.
- Added Firmware sort to mobile application. Now by clicking on the firmware card on the location dashboard, users will be taken to the device list where devices are sorted by firmware update status. This is the same experience as the web application.
- Updated WebConnect page to communicate that connections are encrypted.
- Fixed device list sort status and update columns now have the correct ascend/descend directions.
- Fixed issue where some devices were not seeing the firmware upgrade button when firmware update was available.
