Phoebetria Software for controlling the BitFenix(R) Recon fan controller. (C) 2012 by Craig Robbins and Christopher Ferris phoebetria.software@gmail.com http://www.phoebetria.com Bringer of Favourable Winds "I am going to unexplored regions, to "the land of mist and snow," but I shall kill no albatross; therefore do not be alarmed for my safety or if I should come back to you as worn and woeful as the 'Ancient Mariner.'" - Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus, Mary Shelley Introduction ============ Phoebetria lets you take control of your BitFenix Recon fan controller on more operating systems than the official software from BitFenix(R). It offers all of the same features as the official software, with the exception of remote access, and has been tested on Windows, Linux, and OS X. The current plan is that future releases will add functionality and control that the official software does not provide -- giving you even more control over your fans. Ancient sailors often regarded the albatross as a bringer of luck or favourable winds. The genus that the albatross belong to is Phoebetria. Features ======== First, the primary aim of Phoebetria is to provide at least the same functionality that the OEM software for the BitFenix Recon provides. The exception to this is remote control, however this is planned for a future release. The second aim is to provide features not available in the official software. Examples of this second aim are software controlled "auto" mode, logging, and much more. These extended features shall be added to Phoebetria once the software matures and provides the same features that the OEM software provides (the "baseline"). As of Version 1.1.1 all features of the BitFenix Recon are supported. The software runs as a normal, native application, in contrast to the OEM software which is a web application that gets its data via a "fancontroller" service. Phoebetria is cross-platform. At this stage, Windows, Linux and OS X are the targeted platforms although the software may compile and be functional on other Unix-like operating systems such as BSD. About ===== The authors of Phoebetria are probably just like you. We own the BitFenix Recon and want to coax as much from the fan controller as possible. We like hardware. We like to have fun. We like to experiment. Phoebetria is not (currently) endorsed by BitFenix. That said, we believe that Phoebetria is at least as good as the "official" software and that it unlocks the BitFenix Recon to allow the hardware to be used to its full capacity. We thank BitFenix for supplying hardware to use for testing; Versions 1.2.0 onwards have benefited from their generosity. Installation ============ See INSTALL.txt Conclusion ========== We hope you enjoy Phoebetria as much as we have enjoyed developing it!
