Version 3 has been released!

RemoteSign Sequencer version history

Unless otherwise stated, newer versions do not need to be registered again.

Ways to upgrade RemoteSign Sequencer:

  • You can simply download and install RemoteSign the same location. A registered copy will remain registered.
  • You can also run Fetcher.exe (in RemoteSign folder since version 2.4.15) and double click the Sequencer.exe to get the new executable. (Script files will not be updated.)

2021-09-10 v3.5

New feature
  • Added the ability to define channels in RemoteSign ESP devices using registered copies of RemoteSign Sequencer. Update RemoteSign ESP devices to version 3.5 and register it to gain the capability on the ESP side. Note: this new version of RemoteSign Sequencer needs to be installed with the installer as there is an additional system file that is needed.


2021-04-18 V3.0.26
  • Fixed a bug that was not updating script references in IF commands when a script was deleted
  • Added new command: 'Random Delay' to allow a random delay in a script. Upper and lower limit of the delay can be set.

  • Fixed single step scripts which were no longer working due to stopping the script first when starting a script.
  • Removed the delay control for comment commands
  • Added a button to launch RemoteSign from RemoteSign edit screen, visible if RemoteSign Address is local machine 127.0.0.1
