In this first post of many, we wanted to discuss today’s new feature announcement, and give insights into our development process here at MWM.
A month ago, we released our first Phase Firmware update, an important stage in the life of our product.
One of the major improvements was the total rework of our radio communication system between the Phase Receiver and the Remotes.
This rework included new algorithms to automatically allow Phase to choose the best radio frequency available in order to provide better stability in all situations.
Since all the environments are different, we decided to develop a new tool to allow you to manage your own Phase radio settings according to your preferences.
How does it work?
The Battery saving tool allows you, Phase users to manage and optimize the battery consumption of the Remotes according to your performance’s conditions.
In the “Battery saving” tab, a slider allows you to set your own balance between the strength of the radio signal and the battery life saving of your Remotes.
You will then be able to choose between:
- Moving the slider to the right to increase the radio signal and improve the stability of the wireless communication;
- Moving the slider to the left to decrease the radio signal and save battery life.
The “Analyze” feature will help you to figure out where you should place the slider.
It will analyze the environment you are currently in and provide a “Radio score”.
This score indicates the quality of the environment in terms of wireless and high-frequency signals and will help you set the position of the slider.
A high score suggests that your radio environment is good and that you can reduce the radio power emission to save more battery.
A low score suggests a noisy radio environment, in this case, you should try to optimize your environment to improve the conditions of communication between your Phase Receiver and the Remotes.
Please note that the slider is set by default on the highest value of the radio signal.
How to install it?
The feature is available in Beta in the latest Phase Manager version what will allow us to keep on improving it.
To unlock the feature, simply download it on our official website here.
Once installed, you can use the feature which is located under the new “Battery saving” tab.
Make sure that your Phase is up to date with the Firmware version 2 before testing the features.
This first feature is the first of many more to come.
Working along the community’s side is what we have always done, and this approach is at the core of what we want to keep doing.
