This guide will help you to connect the W&T Web-IO Digital (e.g. 57631) to your computer as quickly and easily in order to create the conditions to use IP-Symcon to cover a variety of applications. The devices of the W&T Web-IO Digital product familiy provide the user switch inputs and outputs on screw-type terminal. The Web-IO Box allows the access via a TCP/IP-Ethernet 10/100BaseT gateway to a multitude of protocols and use.
Remove your device from the package and place it in a location that is suitable for your purposes. Pay attention at the installation that your device can be connected easily via a LAN cable. The device may only be used in building services and only specialists should install the described applications. Local regulations (installation, etc.) must be followed.
Connect the device via a network cable to the network and connect it to the power supply.
If the Web-IO is connected correctly and you are using a DHCP server, it is now connected to the local network. (The DHCP server automatically takes over the address assignment for the network users, so you need not worry about nothing else.) First configuration options and settings (e.g. reassignment of the IP address) are possible with the Wutility Software. If it is not available, so download it from www.wut.de. Install the software and run it afterwards. The Web-IO is here easily recognized.
If you do not use a DHCP server, the IP address of the Web-IO can be changed with the Wutility software easily.
If you take the IP address of the Web-IOs now as address in your browser or if you click in the Wutility Menu on Browser (the Web-IO must have been selected previously), you go to the configuration Web page of the Web-IO. Here are the first settings mainly for test purposes also possible.
That's a wrap! Now you can finally turn to IP-Symcon.
After installing the software with your user name and keys (received via e-mail from IP Symcon), you can now connect the Web-IO with IP-Symcon.
To do this, open the IP-Symcon console (on your desktop). Then connect to one of the IP Symcon server. Then click under "Object" on "Create instance". Here click on "W&T".
Now select of the counter, one matching input and output for your needs and the functions for your connected devices. If you want to include multiple channels of your device, so you can repeat this step of the instructions any number of times. Now click twice on "Next" and once on "OK". It opens, for example, the configuration of the "W&T outputs." Here are settings to the channel of the device possible. The exact assignment of channels, check the instructions for your W&T device.
Now click on the gear (bottom left) and enter the IP address of the Web-IO.
A password is optional. Factory set for no password.
The timer must be enabled, that IP-Symcon can get new data from the Web-IO and displays a change within a manually entered time. (The described configuration of the WUT gateways is only necessary at initial installation. When adding additional devices, you can skip this step.)
Click on "Apply" and "OK" and then again on "OK". Now click on "Welcome" (bottom left) and then under "WebFront" on "open WebFront". Your browser will then open the interface of IP-Symcon and you can, for example turn on or off devices which are connected to the Web-IO by "W&T Output".
Congratulations! The first steps for an automated home are done.
