  • In addition to updates from v1.2.5:

1.2.5 (2024-02-27)
  • Add 'Duration' as an Alarm Filter criteria variable. "Duration” is the length in seconds of the detected event.

  • Provide access to the latest calibration measurement of the mics.
    The calibration values will be shown in the device table of both the daily maintenance email and the smart-daily-log.txt file.

  • Add the device prefix to results.csv and log.txt file names to distinguish from other devices’ files.

  • Add a checkbox for "night mode" for file downloads.
    When filtering files to download on the Date Files tab, setting the “night mode” checkbox adjusts the time filter such that files starting from noon on the selected day are considered. Without night mode, midnight is used.

  • Add hook script execution after maintenance activities are complete.
    By placing a shell script “” in the /var/www/html/storage directory, the system will run this script at completion of other tasks in the maintenance window. This enables customers to run custom tasks as needed.

1.2.3 (2023-06-19)
  • Fixes an issue where microphones go idle when the internal hard disk reaches 95% full. Now microphones will continue to stream for analysis but no new .wav or .zc files will be created until the disk storage is reduced.
  • Adds a "Create diagnostics dump file" button on the "Maintenance" tab to create diagnostic file in logs. This file contains the last 1000 lines of journal logs from smart services, timestamp with configured timezone, and all the SMART configuration files. It can then be downloaded from the "Data" tab and sent to the Wildlife Acoustics support team.
11.7 (2023-05-26)
  • Adds a “Disable when heater is on” option on the Settings Profiles Tab to disable analysis of signals while the heater is turned on. This will prevent false triggers in situations where a noisy power supply introduces noise through the heater.
  • Adds a "Qual" bat call parameter to SMART alarm criteria.
  • Improves GUANO metadata in recordings to include additional information such as which microphone sensor is being used, if the heater is on, etc.
  • Explicitly disables auto-updates of the Controller’s Ubuntu operating system.
