New groovHeads Videos

Google Glass to LED Sign

Want to see something cool you can do with Google Glass?

Need to access your groov mobile interface over the web, but not quite sure how to set it up?

Either way you'll want to check out our new groovHeads YouTube channel. A couple of videos are there now and we'll be adding lots more.

Google Glass to LED Sign!—Ben Orchard shows one of his experiments with Google Glass: he speaks into Glass and the message appears on an LED sign. In the background a Communication Handle command in a PAC Control strategy and a website called If This Then That make it happen. Fun stuff!

Cradlepoint router to groov Box for mobile Internet interface

Cradlepoint and groov—Benson Hougland walks you step by step through configuring a Cradlepoint MBR1200B router so you can use your smartphone to access your groov Box over the Internet, using port forwarding. Concepts are similar for other routers. Note that we do recommend using a virtual private network (VPN) for better security.

Subscribe to the groovHeads channel for more cool and helpful videos. And who knows? We may ask for videos from you, too. Stay tuned.

Tech Tip: Using Formulas and Equations in PAC Control

Need polynomial equations in your PAC Control strategy? Not a problem.

polynomial equation in OptoScript

When you have complex math to do, you'll want to use an OptoScript block in your flowchart. And like anything else, an example and a little guidance will make it easy to get the result you want.

This tip comes once again from the OptoForums, this time in answer to a question about velocity and Delta P readings in an air flow station.

The answer not only shows how to express the equation in OptoScript but also provides some general tips for equations in PAC Control. For example, using named variables rather than just x or y, so you can search them easily. And avoiding rounding problems with floats.

For more tips on equations, read the OptoForum post.

Post your questions and answer others on the OptoForums. Forums are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and all it takes to post is a free My.Opto22 account.
