You can use the standard browser of your PC to call up the PC interface of the HomePilot. For example, start Firefox or Google Chrome and enter http://homepilot.local in the address bar.
If the PC interface is not displayed immediately, please note the following points.
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 the HomePilot2, the second LED from the right must light up. If this is not the case, disconnect the device from the mains and connect the HomePilot to your router via LAN cable.
If the interface of the HomePilot 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.
