General Discussion / The strength of the Almond
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on November 23, 2020, 11:27:28 am »
I feel the main strength of the Almond lies in its screen, but that it was wasted to use it just for configuration. Since the screen and lighting have very long life in principle (the A1A problem aside) it should default to showing the local weather 24/7 where there is still also room to include a local clock feature. The Almond 3 having a speaker could include an alarm clock feature.

An opportunity missed perhaps.

Peanut plug / House voltage display
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on November 22, 2020, 11:02:22 am »
One thing that would be very nice would be a way to display the house voltage full screen from a peanut plug on the Almond in the manner of the time or weather so one could monitor the voltage at the desk.

I already have one Almond showing the time and another showing the weather; a third showing the house voltage would make for an impressive desk setup.

Almond 3 / Almond 3 screen size

The Almond 3 has a screen shroud, which makes me wonder if a larger screen was initially planned.

Almond 2015 / Re: Physical differences between Almond Routers
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on November 16, 2020, 09:11:10 pm »
As far as I can tell the A1A is just a 2015 without zigbee, one can even swap firmware; so no external differences.

Almond and Almond A1A / Wifi slow but hardline is fast
« Last post by Boazmojica on November 04, 2020, 10:36:59 am »
I am hooked to the Almond via a hardline and the speedtest is showing 85mbs down, on the wifi the speed is about 7mbs.  Is there a setting set that is throttling down the speed or is this normal( I hope not!).

Thanks

General Discussion / Re: How is Securifi and the team doing?
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on October 30, 2020, 12:28:09 pm »
Yes, it is a pity as I also like the product, especially the ability to show the weather.

I have

1 x Almond A1A
4 x Almond 3
6 x HomeScreen

I think they cut too may corners in manufacturing and had screen issues with the Almond A1A/2015 and a capacitor issue with the Almond 3; I ended up replacing the screen on the Almond A1A and capacitors on all the Almond 3 units.

I picked up so many units (they are cheap second hand) to display the time and weather more than for the Wi-Fi, although the Almond 3 is very capable; the A1A/2015 only has fast ethernet, but the Almond 3 has gigabit.

Almond+ / Re: wifi frequently crash and restart
« Last post by ElricX on October 29, 2020, 10:09:24 pm »
I will answer to myself, the problem was caused by a new laptop connected on the wifi. It use wifi6 driver and the drivers doesn't handle well the wifi security protocol. We must set to Force CCMP AES only in the Cipher parameter.

Almond 2015 / Interesting article on the HomeScreen router
« Last post by anwar.shiekh on October 29, 2020, 09:00:36 pm »
https://www.reddit.com/r/homeautomation/comments/efy1dy/alternate_method_for_updating_securifi_peanut/

One loses the 5GHz ability and Gigabit ethernet by using the 2015 firmware on the HomeScreen, but I am after the weather reporting feature.

I am now running one to see if the screen ages prematurely (as it did on some A1A units) or if any components age prematurely (as a capacitor did on the Almond 3)

The HomeScreen also has a slightly larger screen than the Almond, even though they were both made by Securifi
