First Steps


The first step is to access to your personal web interface, you can connect to your server through this link (. At the login screen the default credentials are:

Username: admin

Password: password

Note. remember to type /emlite/web after your IP or you will cant reach the desired page.
Once connected the first thing to do is create a Zone, you can think at a Zone like an area of your house/installation, to simplify things we just name it Zone 1 like the image on the left. To do that just click the + ZONE on the bottom left of the window, doing that will allow inserting the name of your Zone.
 

We repeat the same step for the room. This will create the room inside your Zone 1. To do that just click the + ROOM in the centre of the window, doing that will allow inserting the name of your Room.

Now it’s time to add components to your room! Just click the down arrow to expand the menu and click + to add your desired component.
As you can see on the right side of the components you have the “Device Configuration” where you can edit your component name, write the KNX Addresses and change the icons. Furthermore, you can choose to delete the component or simply duplicate it using the icons that you can find on the bottom of the window: 
Note.  If you find this symbol on the right of your component we recommend to give a check at your KNX configuration.

For more information about components please visit this page.

Manage your project


To manage your project click the Manage icon on the left side of the window. You have now the possibilities to edit your project from the Title to the KNX gateway settings.

Properties

  • Title ⇒ Allows you to enter the desired title for your project

 

  • Description ⇒  Allows you to enter the description of your project
The second part of the window will let you choose the gateway, as you can see from the image below you can only choose between X1, X3 and KNX gateway. Once selected your desired gateway as you can see it the software will auto fill the text field (you can change those parameters manually according to your needs).

Import KNX project

Import the desired KNX project that you have already made, this will import all the configuration from the Group Addresses to the Rules.
Group Addresses allow the user to filter the data of the KNX.
Similar to Group Addresses, Rules allow the user to filter the feedback address of a component based on names.

Save/Open project

In this tab, you can save your current project or just load a previous made one.

Sync


Sync a project mean, after you have build one, that you can upload it to the server. Once uploaded you will able to control your devices through the app EVE Remote Plus, vice-versa if you need to edit your project you can download it from the server and fix the parameters you want.

Settings


Change password

In this part of setting you are allowed to change the password of the user. The default password is “password“.
