We’ll be rolling out automatic updates to firmware April 29th-30th. This update adds improved weather update frequency (and fixes a depreciated API that may cause issues with custom locations), and new features: master dimmer, more curated weather locations for older devices, and prep for an acclimation timer. During firmware update your device will restart. New features will be available in the app by Sunday April 30th 9PM PST. There is no app update required, and you do not need to uninstall the app.

New Features Incoming!
We’re excited to announce the imminent release of several new features. A May 2023 firmware update will make these new features available for Bluefish cloud subscribers.
1) Fully custom schedules. Two schedule options now: Dynamic/Custom. Dynamic is the existing mode that includes the ability to use sunrise/sunset times from your simulated location. Custom will give you full control over all channels and allow you to add as many points as you wish.
2) Master dimmer. For making adjustments during acclimation periods, or making intensity changes while preserving your color mix.
3) Enhanced weather. I’ll be making a change to a better weather API provider that will give us some data that I hope to put to use in the future. You will immediately have increased update resolution for custom locations. From once per hour, to every 15 minutes.
