Beta Release of OpenSeizureDetector V2.5.1

I have just released a new Beta test release of OpenSeizureDetector on Google Play Store (V2.5.1).

The only change is an improvement to handling alarms from short duration seizures.   If a seizure is only detected for a short period, the previous version may only give a single set of Alarm beeps, which may be insufficient to alert a carer.

With the new version, if you enable “Latch Alarms” in the Alarms settings then when an alarm initiates, the alarm beeps will sound for the period specified in the “Latch Alarm Timer Duration” setting, even if the alarm resets quicker.

You can stop the alarm to silence the beeps earlier by pressing the Accept Alarm button.  This works both on the main OpenSeizureDetector app screen, and also if you are running it on another device using Network Datasource to provide alarm annunciation in a different part of the house.

This is as a result of the seizure Benjamin had last week, when we only got a single sent of alarm beeps.   This is fine if you are awake and alert, but if you are asleep it may not be enough to rouse you.   More details of this event on the Real Test of OpenSeizureDetector page.    A further update will follow fairly soon with an improved algorithm to detect seizures with lower frequency movement.
