Set the device’s timezone.
When you create your FarmBot web app account and login for the first time, we will automatically set your device’s timezone to match your computer or phone’s timezone (whichever was used to login to the account). If your FarmBot is located somewhere else, you can change the timezone setting here.
Specify where FarmBot is located in the world with latitude and longitude coordinates. This information may be used by advanced sequence commands to provide smarter FarmBot operation, such as a watering command that uses local weather data.
To set the location, press the openstreetmap.org to the current coordinates so that you may double check accuracy.button and grant your web browser permission to provide location information to the web app. This will automatically set the coordinates using two decimal precision (neighborhood level). If you would like to provide more or less precision, you may edit the coordinates manually. Clicking the icon will open
Specify whether or not your FarmBot is located indoors. This information may be used by advanced sequence commands to provide smarter FarmBot operation based on an indoor vs outdoor environment.
With this dropdown you can choose the hour of the day when FarmBot will apply software updates so that updates occur at a convenient time (such as the middle of the night) when you do not have any events scheduled and do not plan to be working with your FarmBot.
You may also choose the
As soon as possible option, in which case FarmBot will install updates immediately as they become available. Note that selecting this option may cause unexpected disruptions and event execution failures.
When enabled, FarmBot OS will automatically download and install software updates at the chosen time.
Enabled by default
This setting is enabled by default so that your FarmBot will stay updated automatically with the latest features and security patches. If you decide to disable auto updates, please make sure you regularly manually update your device so that it stays within our support policy.
View the version of FarmBot OS that you have installed on your device, that version’s release notes, and install updates if they are available using thebutton. Note that the update button will display as when there are no updates available.
The BOOT SEQUENCE is a customizable sequence that FarmBot will execute as the final step of the boot up process. This can be especially useful for recovering from a power outage, or to just simply prepare your FarmBot automatically for it’s scheduled tasks after every power cycle.
We recommend getting started with a boot sequence that finds home and sends a message via email so you stay informed about when FarmBot has rebooted. More advanced users may wish to perform additional actions such as operating external peripherals or reading sensors, turning on the lights, mounting a tool, etc.
