Stoker Android App now Available
The first version of my Stoker Android application is finally available:
It can connect directly to the stoker or to the open source stoker-web server.
Features in Stoker only mode:
Features in Stoker-web mode:
This is the first version of the app and contains the basic functionality to operate and monitor the stoker.
Future planned enhancements:
Stoker-web access is done from RESTful web services. The stoker-web server constantly receives temperature data from the stoker from the telnet interface. Stoker-web can return up to date temp data in milliseconds and enables the Android app to poll more frequently.
The 2 minute polling for Alert conditions, when the phone is sleeping, was chosen to extend the battery life of the mobile devices. Polling too frequently will keep the radio active which can significantly reduce battery life. Future versions will have a configurable polling interval so the app can be tailored to suite your needs or device. For version 1, the 'Stop All' menu feature needs to be used to stop the background service.
