What can we improve?




The installation is only possible with a valid subscription.

A regular backup is recommended to ensure that your system is as current as possible in case of a defect. Even more, an active subscription is required to download IP-Symcon anew in case of a complete loss of data.

  • Search for Symcon in the registry and download the image (choose a tag, e.g., latest)
Docker Hub
  • Choose the new image under Image and click Start
  • Choose a name
  • Adjust the Volume Settings (/root, /var/lib/symcon, /var/log/symcon need to be stated!)
  • Adjust Port Settings (3777 to 3777)
  • Confirm with OK, click Next and start the container with Apply

The IP-Symcon WebFront should be reachable at http://ipadresse:3777/.
The IP-Symcon web based Management Console can be called via http://ipadresse:3777/console/. Alternativly, the Pro Console can be used.


Updating requires the removal and recreation of the container, as described under Install. The tool "Portainer" can significantly simplify updating. A tutorial can be found in the Docker Area .


For the uninstallation, the container needs to be stop and removed afterwards. The linked directories for the files need to be removed manually.


NATSupport for KNX and HomeMatic

Due to the container structure KNX and HomeMatic messages contain an IP address as response address that is used only internally and as such, responses could not be received as intended. To receive these messages correctly, NATSupport needs to be set up.

  1. The Special Switches "NATSupport" needs to be activated and IP-Symcon restarted afterwards.
  2. The port of the affected system needs to be mapped to the container. For KNX, this is 52000 by default and for HomeMatic this is 5544 by default. So, for example, the port 52000 would need to be mapped to 52000 for KNX.
  3. A new field "PublicIP" appears in the affected I/O or Splitter instances. The external IP of Docker needs to be entered here. For KNX, this needs to be set at the splitter "EIB Gateway" and for HomeMatic at the I/O "HomeMatic Socket".
