RemoteSign ESP devices can now also flap!

Until firmware version 1.3.2, animated rows would slide up from below as a form of animation, but I am now proud to announce that animated rows will actually flip each character like the split flap signs and the Windows version of RemoteSign!

You can update your RemoteSign ESP using the {OTA} command

New command: {SCREENLIMITS}

A new RemoteSign command has been added - it forces a screen to show the whole displayable area which is useful when installing tiny RemoteSign ESP screens. You can now measure the height and width and also see the exact center lines on the hardware. Update your RemoteSign ESP to add that capability using the {OTA} command.

RemoteSign Sequencer can now find RemoteSign on your LAN

A new feature in RemoteSign Sequencer makes it very easy to connect to RemoteSigns on the network!

Step by step instructions on connecting Sequencer to RemoteSigns

For those who are not familiar with computer network addressing, there is a now a hot link in the RemoteSign configuration dialog in Sequencer 1.1.30 which takes one to a page describing the steps.

RemoteSign on Windows version 2.6.7 now also displays the network host name to make it easier to find out what your computer is called.

RemoteSign ESP now supports inverse video

If {TEXT} and {ROW} commands include foreground and background color data, a RemoteSign ESP will use inverse video if the foreground color is lower than the background color.

RemoteSign can now have no clock displaying

Both RemoteSign ESP and RemoteSign Windows can suppress the display of the clock using a new {CLOCK} command option 'N'. Scrolling text can also now be used on any row (was previously kept from the first row because of the clock.) Scrolling text now avoids all clock formats (Digital/analog/none).

RemoteSign Sequencer now has conditional branching!

A new 'If' command has been added, which allows conditional branching on counter values. This adds a new level of sophistication to the scripting abilities!

RemoteSign Sequencer now has nine counters

RemoteSign Sequencer now lets you manage the values of nine different counters. Each can have their values set, or incremented or decremented and can be sent to any RemoteSign using the new counter macro. See sample file DebsDeli.ini for an example.

RemoteSign Sequencer released!

The wait is over! RemoteSign Sequencer has been released!
RemoteSign Sequencer is bundled with RemoteSign, and is installed along with RemoteSign (Windows version)

New Time Macro feature!

Version 2.5.9 of Windows RemoteSign has a new feature that lets you define dynamic times!

New firmware for RemoteSign ESP

A new version of the RemoteSign ESP now provides sensor input!

Three sensors are provided, allowing information to be relayed back to the driving software. Simply connect pins D5, D6 or D7 to the ground pin (G) of the ESP8266 board via a switch or digital accessory decoder to trigger the three sensors on or off. The RemoteSign will send {S} commands back to the connected software whenever the sensors go on or off. This allows push buttons or even a digital control system to request different screen content!

Existing devices can be upgraded over the air using the {OTA} command!
