Automatical Compaction of Archive Data
The data load on the system can be reduced significantly thanks to the automatical compaction of variable data. It is possible to individually configure the grade of detail for stored data, also depending on the datas age.
How much energy is consumed by heating, depending on the exterior temperature? Now, all graph types can be combined optimally within a single chart. Within, the counter of the heater is displayed in bars as usual and the temperature as line chart.
Integration of IPSStudio
No more need for specific apps for IPSStudio. With the new version, the configuration moves into the console. Thus, IPSViews and Workflows can be edited directly within the console.
Now, IP-Symcon cannot only act as BACnet client but also as server. This enables IP-Symcon to act as bridge and forward values of other systems to BACnet or provide its very own parameters.

With the new version, any number of objects can be edited at once. Thus, you can, e.g., activate logging for a high number of variables quickly and uncomplicated, or set the visibility for many objects at once. As such, a high number of operations can be done with a significantly lower number of clicks.
Improved Module Store
Diverse parts of the Module Store were improved or extended. Now, it is much easier to see if there are updates available for your modules. Or you just browse and see which modules are currently trending! Finally, the new Testing channel enables internal tests, where developers can invite specific testers.
We developed even more performance improvements. The console can handle even more objects simultaneously, the system starts faster and MQTT works with more devices.
New Modules from the Symcon GmbH
We also developed a number of new modules. For example, use the Energy Report to automatically send a report and find some more modules or module extensions in our Module Store.

The performance of all tree and list views within the console was improved significantly. Even when displaying thousands of objects at once or opening categories with more than 1000 children, the console continues to runs smoothly.
SymOS with 64 Bit
The software IP-Symcon and the operating system SymOS on the SymBox now use the full potential of the 64-bit architecture. Thus, IP-Symcon runs with even more performance and enables even bigger projects on the SymBox.
Device Search in Voice Assistants
All voice assistants now offer a device search. As such, it is not required any more to configure all devices individually. Instead, the device search is started once and discovers fitting devices. Within the selection, it can be selected easily which devices are really to be integrated and the voice assistant is ready in a flash.
in List View
Within the list view of the object tree, all objects within IP-Symcon are displayed at once. The classical view from the legacy console finally returns to the current console and enables sorting after any column. This can be used to quickly discover which objects within the tree are updated often or which instances are erroneous.
Actions are now available as a new building block for automation. They enable the switching and configuration of all object types. Events can be activated or all lights within a category switched on without effort.
The version 6.0 introduces Flow Scripts, a new type of automation. Here, multiple actions can be executed one after another. "If ..., then" actions even allow actions to be embedded into each other.
Gardena Smart System and Home Connect
Garden and kitchen can be automated now. IP-Symcon is compatible with GARDENA smart system and Home Connect. Modules were developed for both systems and are available in the Module Store.
More Supported Operating Systems
IP-Symcon can already be used on a multitude of operating systems. With version 6.0, IP-Symcon becomes additonally available as native package for Raspberry Pi OS (64 Bit Beta) and as Docker version for Arm64 and Apple Silicon (M1) devices.
