Control Web-IO Digital using a smartphone
Getting started with the smart home using iPhone etc. for remote control
Smart phones are carried by nearly everyone today. In addition to the original idea of being able to phone from everywhere, they provide a means of connecting to the Internet. The iPhone in particular has acquired almost cult status. Together with the Wieseman & Theis Web-IO Digital boxes, smart phones like the iPhone can be used as remote control for home and building technology.
Ad hoc access on the smart phone
All Web-IO models offer smart phone users a web page customized for the phone display size.
- Dynamic display of the inputs
- Dynamic display of the outputs
- Operation and display of the outputs
- IO names configured in the Web-IO are copied over
- Password protected access
- No apps required
Once these steps are completed the Web page can be displayed in the smart phone.
The page is opened as follows:
The first time the smart page is opened it requires a password. The password can be stored on the smart phone so that the login procedure can be skipped.
Mobile phones like the iPhone can open the connection to the Internet either over the public cell phone network (UMTS/GPRS) or via a WLAN connection or hotspot. Both the access speed and any fees vary considerably.
If you want the Web page to be opened on the smart phone for a longer period of time, bear in mind any resulting fees for accessing the cell network.
