Technical requirements and controllable devices

 

ayControl controls almost every electronic device, which can be connected to a network. It is perfectly adjusted for installations based on EIB/KNX, but it is also easy to configure with other systems.
To use ayControl you need:

  • iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android devices
  • WLAN-Router
  • Wi-Fi router, Wi-Fi interface or Wi-Fi access point
  • KNX IP-Interface or Router
  • Controlable device or system
Supported:

iOS devices (iOS 8 upwards), including iPhone 4S, iPhone 5(S), iPhone 5C, iPhone SE, iPhone 6(S) (Plus), iPhone 7 (Plus), all iPads (excl. iPad 1), all iPad Air, all iPad mini and all iPad Pro. Android Smartphones and Tablets (Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” and upwards) including BlackBerry 10 Smartphones and Kindle Fire Phone/Tablets.

Control your building with ayControl in various ways with iPad, iPhone and Android devices from afar!

How does ayControl communicate with my devices?

Die ayControl KNX App uses your Wi-Fi and LAN to exchange information and send comamnds to the connected devices.

  • EIB/KNX
    e.g. Siemens IP Router N146, Siemens IP Interface N148, Weinzierl KNX IP Interface 730
  • IP camera
    Watch the KNX building through displaying pictures by IP cameras. Connect one or more IP cameras (e.g. front door,…) and enjoy safety and information.
  • Door station
    Voice + Video: Not only see the video and being able to open the door with door station voice – you are also able to talk to your visitor.
  • Infrared
    e.g. IRTrans
  • network capable multimedia devices
    have to be connected with the Wi-Fi Router;
    can directly respond via TCP, UDP or HTTP through an easy expandable driver unit interfaces
  • devices with serial interface
    have to be connected via LAN adaptor with the Wi-Fi Router;
    can also directly respond via TCP, UDP or HTTP through an easy expandable driver unit interfaces

Requirements for EIB/KNX IP Router or Interface:

No (home) server or fixed mounted wall panel necessary!

EIB/KNX IP Interfaces like

  • Weinzierl KNX IP Interface 730 ( supports 5 parallel connections* )
  • MDT KNX IP Interface SCN-IP000.01 ( supports 5 parallel connections* )
  • eelectron IN00A02IPI – KNX Interface ( supports 5 parallel connections* )
  • Siemens N148/22 IP Interface ( supports 4 parallel connections* )
  • JUNG KNX IPS 200 REG ( supports 4 parallel connections* )
  • Gira KNX/EIB IP-Schnittstelle 21683210 ( supports 4 parallel connections* )
  • ABB i-bus® KNX IP Interface IPS/S 2.1 ( attention: only 1 connection, thus not recommended for new installations* )
