I've also just joined the forum having not had any success in getting responses on the MyOpen forums. I've read through the posts here and seems like people really want to help which is great.
I've just had a MyHome system installed in my new house primarily to control lighting and blinds. The system was installed by an installer using the hard configurators using rather than the virtual method which is the way i want to go now.
I've just purchased and installed the F454 web server and connected it to the SCS bus. However I have a problem when I log in via through MyHome Suite through my network using ip address 192.168.1.35 (I don't use a crossover ethernet cable). It seems to connect however I immediately get the message "Plant disconnected: connection to remote host lost" and it doesn't retrieve any information from the system.
I can login to the F454 webserver directly but all I see via the portal is a single configuration under lighting called "Gen1" which only allows all the lights on and off together but no individual control.
Any ideas, thanks?
Hi, I will pass the message around
The reason I got an F454 was that I want to have control of my lighting via my smarthome and a solution I came across was via a solution called MyOmBox which requires an F454. I don't know if you know that solution?
I'll have a look at the ip access restriction. Would this require for example the PC IP address to be in a specific range?
Following up on your idea of ip address restriction, I've come across the following bTicino MyHome control with live feedback for IOS and Android. - MyURemote - Universal Remote Control App
"BTicino has chosen a rather strange password policy. Their own tools make a connection using a password. However, the password protocol is not publicly documented. They do allow to specify one or more ip ranges, from which you can communicate with the gateway without password.
I'll have a go this evening
- the bTicino tools need to be run from an ip address outside the range of enabled ip addresses
- your device (IOS, android) needs to be run from an ip address within the range of enabled ip addresses without password"
I saw that sometime ago and wondered if it was a bad idea to make it public??? On the other hand app developers would need to know.
