It is yet again the time for a new Wacnet release.
You can download it here: Download Wacnet. If you are on the mailing list, you should already have received a direct download link.
This release introduces a few new features…
HVAC Wiki Link - Manufacturer and Model Info
Not only is Wacnet now able to show you the device manufacturer and model, it does so by generating a link to the HVAC Wiki.
This means that while your are exploring a BACnet network, you can jump immediately to the device’s wiki entry.
An unknown device? Check who made it… A problem with a particular device? Check its wiki entry for known bugs!
Since 1.1.6, Wacnet has been caching the remote devices properties for a few minutes. While it can dramatically speed up browsing on a slow network, sometimes you might prefer to have a VERY recent property value.
With this release, users are now able to configure the caching time (or disable it altogether).
Vigilia Self-hosted Support
With the advent of Vigilia Self-Hosted, Wacnet needed to be able to send its recorded data to any server.
It is now possible for Wacnet to send the recorded data to the same machine (localhost), a remote Vigilia server hosted by your company, or simply continue using HVAC.IO servers.
