Known Issues

  • For customers that are trying out our new Water feature on site-view, the GEMS pressure switch needs to be selected for Mark 2 on the analog port in order to capture irrigation runtime data from the drip irrigation line. This means that there will be no wind direction provided in the user interface even if you have an anemometer connected. However, you can still validate and see wind speed data from the Bridge pulse port.  
  • In the new Water Views, after a Gems sensor is configured the values for the readings will display in the Multi-site View as runtimes. However, the first Irrigation amount will not be added to the Water Balance or Irrigation details measurements in the Single Site views. All irrigation events after the first event will be recorded in both the Single Site views as amounts and in the Multi Site views as runtimes. 
  • For the Multi-site Views, the Last Irrigation Runtime is displaying the hours for the last irrigation event that took place. If a given day had multiple irrigated events, the display would only be of the most recent one, not the aggregation for the day. 
  • For Irrigation events, if a flow rate was improperly configured there is no way to go back and correct previous readings with a new flow rate to reflect accurate applied irrigation measurements. 
  • The local Mark max/min temperature for the hour is taken as the max/min of all 5-min interval readings during that hour. Meanwhile, the current temperature is the average for the last hour, creating a discrepancy between the two values during weather alerts. We are investigating whether relying on a 5-min interval for Tmin/Tmax is vulnerable to noise, and if so, will change this algorithm.
  • Terms & Conditions are e-mailed in English, regardless of what language is registered. A link to alternative languages is provided in the email. 
  • The alerts in the My Alerts log are shown in English even if another language is selected in Arable Mobile. 
  • Push notifications are presented based on the language configured on the phone and not the language set in Arable Mobile. 
  • When clicking on a notification, the app will navigate to either the Heat Spikes or Frost Events screens, but won’t open the hourly records to point out the current-hour row. 
  • "Delayed Data Delivery" Alert Message states no action, but the unit has not been reporting in for 12 hours. An updated message is planned and would read {device_id} at {site_name} is offline. Please check your device.
  • Mobile Login works even if the User Active checkbox is unchecked in Arable AppAdmin. The mobile app will throw an error while the user is accepting terms and conditions.
