Features

Currently the maximum number of supported devices is 16.

We may add more at a later date once we can improve the stability of the WiFi connection.


Lake Remote uses the 3rd Party Protocol as published by Lab.gruppen/Lake.

This means we are restricted in what can actually be controlled and displayed via the Lake Remote app.

The list of controls and parameters can be found here:

iPad

Daylight mode in Lake Controller is initiated in the software.

Whilst Lake Remote does not have daylight mode in the same way as Lake Controller Apple iPad does have Accessibility Options that allow high contrast settings.

To enable these do the following:

 

Settings > General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut > Invert Colors

 

This now sets the home button into a toggle invert colors mode activated when you triple-click it in fast succession.

To enter Invert Color (daylight mode) triple-click the home button 3 times (you can be within the app when you do this)

To leave Invert Colors (daylight mode) triple-click the home button 3 times.


Known issues

The DLM 3rd Party Protocol from Lab.gruppen/Lake has a bug in the code. Until this is fixed we can not interface with these meters. A bug report has been submitted to Lab/Lake and they have acknowledged this will be fixed in due course.


Lake Devices

The control interface is based on the 3rd Party Protocol that Lab.gruppen and Lake maintain and publish. Legacy products are not supported by the firmware versions bundled in V6.0 and above of Lake Controller.

Legacy products use V5.8 and below and the protocol is very different for these discontinued devices.

We therefore can only support current Lake and Lab.gruppen models that utilize the 3rd Party Protocol.

More information about supported products can be found here.


Networking

The Auto/Zero/Zen config networking does not work on the iPad in the same way as it does with a PC.

This is called link-local and uses IP 169.254.x.y addressing range.

More info can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3798

 

For quick reference only – this means you must enter a Static IP address in the range of your network (usually 169.254.x.y with subnet – 255.255.255.0)

(or use static IP addressing or have a DHCP enabled router/server on the system).

To find out what range your Lake devices are utilizing you can go into Lake Controller > Modules > I/O Config >Technical Data

Here you will see whether the devices are set to Auto – Zero Config, Auto – DHCP, Fixed IP addressing.

Set your iPad to the same IP address format and subnet as found here.

You can also go to the front of the Lake frame to find the IP/subnet information:

Menu > Frame > Frame Info > Network
