Prerequisite for the use of the HomePilot is a router or a DSL modem with router function with switched on DHCP function and a free LAN port. After connecting the HomePilot, an IP address is assigned dynamically. The IP address is assigned to the name (factory default host name: HomePilot).
If you operate the HomePilot via W-LAN, please check the LEDs on the HomePilot. In the case of HomePilot2, the second LED from the left must light up, and in the case of HomePilot1, the blue LED must light up regularly. If this is not the case, disconnect the device from the mains and connect the HomePilot to your router via LAN cable.
To be able to reach the HomePilot in the local network, you must be in the same network as the computer. Be aware that restrictions in the router such as parental controls, guest network, etc. may prevent communication.
If the HomePilot interface is not established, the call can alternatively be made via the IP address, which must be determined accordingly.
Where can I find the IP address of the HomePilot?
The IP address is assigned by your router, so the first option is to look for the IP address in the router. To do this, refer to the router's user manual. If the name of the HomePilot is not listed in the router, at least the MAC address or UID of the HomePilot must be entered. The MAC or UID address can be found on the back of the HomePilot.
Another possibility is a network scan, which displays all devices on the network. This can be done very easily with a smartphone and a corresponding app. E.g. Fing (available for free in the store), note that the smartphone must be in the same network.
