A system with one of the listed operating systems is required to use IP-Symcon. In addition, a LAN connection is vital for most gateways. Energy saving components are recommended as the system is permanently active. Our own SymBox is also suitable for most projects.
IP-Symcon can be configured as server on most operating systems. A special app for mobile operating systems (iOS, Android) presents the visualization that is provided by the IP-Symcon server.
A complete list of the compatibility between IP-Symcon versions and operating systems is available in the version overview.
Limitations of different operating systems
Limitations to SymBox, Raspberry Pi, Linux, MacOS, and NAS systems
- The compatibility functions are deactivated by default. See special switches for reactivation, if you need compatibility with IP-Symcon 3.4 or older.
- No MediaPlayer (currently only in Windows)
- Text to Speech: The TTS module can currently only be started within a Windows environment. Alternatively, the module "Text To Speech (AWS Polly)" from the Module Store can be used. It works for all operating systems.
