Summary

Automation devices such as lights, fans, appliances, garage doors are added, removed, or updated using the built in gateway web interface.

Before you can you add new device types, a module that can handle the device types needs to be installed. For example, to control ZWave deices, the zwave module should be installed first. See manage modules section for adding additional modules.

The first place to look before manually adding a device is to check the Discovery section within the web interface. From the menu, select Discovery. Many device types allow for auto discovery and typically show up here. This is the best and easiest method to add a new device.

  • Complete the device entry fields and any device variables.
  • Click on Submit New Device when completed.

Edit devices

Editing devices is very simple using the web interface:

  • Open the web interface.
  • Select Devices from the menu.
  • Find the device to be edited.
  • From the Actions column, click on Edit for the device.
  • Update any desired fields, then at the bottom click Submit Device Information.

Delete devices

  • Open the web interface.
  • Select Devices from the menu.
  • Find the device to be edited.
  • From the Actions column, click on Delete for the device.
  • Confirm deletion of the device by typing delete' in the box and click on Delete Device.

Enable and disable devices

  • Open the web interface.
