Here's what the LED on the fron of the WiFerm is telling you:
SLOW BLUE = The WiFerm is booting up.
FAST BLUE = The WiFerm is in "connection mode". Connect to your home network and tell the WiFerm who it is by navigating to your WiFi settings on a phone, tablet or computer. Select "WiFerm Controller Setup" from the list of networks.
FLASH GREEN = The WiFerm is connected to a network.
SOLID BLUE = The WiFerm's cooling relay is on.
SOLID RED = The WiFerm's heating relay is on.
FLASH TWO REDS = The WiFerm is having trouble connecting to a network. The WiFerm will remember the last temperature it grabbed from the internets.
Q: My WiFerm is showing a temperature of 0º. What's up?
A: The capitalization you used in the WiFerm setup MUST match the capitalization you used when you registered the username and device name at app.wiferm.com. Perform the reset procedure by unplugging the temp probe (while powered on) for 60 seconds. This will delete the username, controller name and WiFi network from the device. Recycle the power (with the temp probe plugged in) on the unit and run the setup.
Q: I don't remember the capitalization I used when I registered.
A: Send me an email at email@example.com and I'll let you know how your username is registered.
Q: I'm getting texts every 30 seconds saying my temp is out of range. What's up?
A: The alerts reset when your temp gets back into your desired range. Your super-efficient fermentation setup is moving the temperture above and below your alert temperatures. Either turn the alerts off or change the alert temperature.
