@danamlewis Yes - we have been running at nights for the past week or so. The main issues we have been facing technology wise has been getting the openaps system close enough to the pump to continually read what is going on and then also getting a continuous reading on the dexcom. Lots of ??? time periods that the openaps system can't use. I've figured out how to deal with the range by running the pi on a battery at night and putting it in bed with him. And a new Dexcom sensor has limited the ??? time periods.
However, the biggest issue is that I think we have a bad 722 pump. As soon as we switched pumps, we have been having wild swings so bad that no system can handle them and has even been difficult for us to manually handle them. A few honestly had me very worried. I posted a few of the nights earlier this week. The only benefit is that we were able to test the openaps system at some extremes.
But then everything even went more haywire last night. He was in a good range with no carbs on board and no insulin on board at 3 am then went straight to 500+ and had keytones - which never happens to us. Unfortunately, the dexcom system was showing ??? so the openaps could not respond but even still there is no reason why this should happen. I switched pumps this morning back to his 723 and he is back to normal and no more wild swings.
I am working on a system to control the OmniPod Pod. My approach is to let an Android app, PodHIC, use the PDM-Remote Human Interface to send temp basal commands to the Pod. The app dose that by reading the PDM-screen and controlling the PDM-buttons. It’s a very early bulky prototype but I can now successfully with the PodHIC send and temp basal command and also end a temp basal command and get a status update of what the current basal running is. You can see movies of it uploaded in the slack channel OminAPS.
I am now thinking of hove to use this should I go fore and 100% Android App or should I make an interface between OpenAPS running on Pi and the PodHIC Android app that speaks to the OmniPod system.
What do you all think is the best approach? Are there any plans to move current OpenAPS implementation from Pi to Android?
