• All Thinknx Servers are, by default, configured to use
DHCP if the network will allow it.
• In the absence of a DHCP service, it will acquire the
following default IP address: 192.168.0.200.
• It is always advised to switch from DHCP to a fixed IP
address which will allow the user to know the server
IP address at any moment.
• Whenever a fixed IP is used, the server will always be
reachable at the IP address 192.168.24.254/30.

• Enabling/Disabling functions
(located in a menu to the left)
• Creating new pages under each
function
• Adding different elements for
each page (buttons, pictures,
indicators, etc)
• Creating System objects to be
linked to their corresponding
elements in the interface (HVAC
controller, RGB controller, etc)
Once the project is created, it is now possible to start designing the interface. The integrator will be able to do the following:

37
• Permits to directly upload the project from within the Configurator
to the server
• It requires that the server is connected on the same network
(locally) as the PC running the Configurator
• All client devices should be available on site to receive the project
file from the PC running the Configurator
• It is very fast and convenient during design and testing phase
Using Local
Network
• From the configurator the project is compressed, encrypted and
uploaded to Thinknx Cloud server that will push the project back to
the Thinknx server.
• Permits to deploy the project remotely without the need to be on
site.
• The server must have an internet connection and should have
Thinknx Cloud enabled.
• It is slower than the previous method but much more practical

AUTHENTICATING CLIENTS

Clients
Authenticating Clients
41
Using the Local network
Whenever the client uses the Thinknx application, a
connection to the server is established.
The first time the client opens the loaded project,
the server requests an authentication of the device.
The Client Authentication is done on the server’s
web page, under Server -> Licenses & Codes.
• Copy the last connected client code and paste it
in the field under the table.
• Click on “Add client code” and check the
“Enabled” box.

Authenticating Clients
42
Using the Cloud
Another way for authentication is by using the
«username» and «password» of each user created
inside the configurator.
This authentication method requires «Thinknx
Cloud» to be enabled, as well as «Automatic
Authentication».
Authenticating
Clients
Authenticating Clients
43
Via OTP
A third way for authentication is by using a one-time
password (OTP) generated by the admin user and
entered on the new client device.
This authentication method requires «Thinknx Cloud» to
be enabled, and «Use OTP authentication».
To generate the OTP, the Admin user should access the
Advanced Settings in the Thinknx UP app, and create a
new user.
CLIENT-SERVER CONNECTION

Connection

45
General
During the normal usage of the Thinknx app, the device running the app (client) needs to connect to the server. In addition to the
local connection available, a remote connection can be done in several ways depending on the characteristics of the internet
connection available at server location.
Possible scenarios are:
1. Static and Public IP
• The external IP is static and
doesn’t change after router
reboot or connection renewal.
• The IP given from the Internet
provider is directly accessible
from the Internet.
2. Dynamic and Public IP
• The external IP changes at
router reboot or after
connection renewal.
• The IP given from the Internet
provider is directly accessible
from the Internet.
3. Not Public IP (using
Thinknx Cloud)
• The IP given from the internet
provider is not directly reachable
from the internet because it is
part of a sub-network or behind
NAT.
Client
–
Server
Connection
Client-Server Connection
46
1. Static and Public IP
In this scenario, the server is always reachable from a given static and public IP.
The IP has to be inserted into the External IP field of the Configurator. Clients will try to connect directly to this IP.
Since the server is usually behind a router, the router has to be configured to forward connections to the server.
Public IP 2.2.2.2
Internal IP 192.168.1.1 Client will always try to connect to external public IP.
Client will connect to 2.2.2.2
Even if the client connects from the same LAN it
will try to connect to external IP unless the option
“search for local server” is enabled on the client
app
IP 192.168.1.5
CONS:
• Router should be
configured to forward
port 7550 TCP to the
server internal IP
(192.168.1.5)
PROS:
• It is the fastest
possible connection
and the more reliable
• All the services are
available
Client
–
Server
Connection
Client-Server Connection
47
2. Dynamic and Public IP
This scenario is very similar to the previous one but in order to overcome the problem tied to not having a static IP, a
dynamic DNS is used. Thinknx offers a free Dynamic DNS service configurable from the server pages.
With this service a host name will be associated to the public IP of the router that will always be translated to the correct
actual IP.
Public IP 2.2.2.2
Internal IP 192.168.1.1 Client will always try to connect DNS name
myhome.my.thinknx.net
myhome.my.thinknx.net is translated to actual IP
2.2.2.2
Even if the client connects from the same LAN it
will try to connect to Dyn DNS host unless the
option “search for local server” is enabled on the
client app
IP 192.168.1.5
CONS:
• Router should be configured
to forward port 7550 TCP to
the server internal IP
(192.168.1.5)
• Some connections holes can
be possible while IP changes
PROS:
• It is faster than Cloud
connections
• All the services are
available
Client
–
Server
Connection
Client-Server Connection
48
3. Not Public (Using Thinknx Cloud)
In case none of the previous scenarios are available on site, the user can use Thinknx Cloud to provide a remote connection
between clients and servers. This can be done by enabled the “Cloud Automatic Connection” from the configurator, and
choose it as “Local and Cloud”.
Server is always
connected to
Cloud
If a client connects from the Internet
then the connection is established
using a tunnel created by means of
the cloud
Cloud encrypted
tunnel
If the client connects from the same LAN of
the server then a direct connections is
performed
PROS:
• No router configuration
needed
• Connection always
available
CONS:
• Cloud server can cause
delays in case of poor
network connection
• Some services are not fully
available at the moment
(cameras,...)

  • 29. Server setup Server Setup 29 1. Connect server to power and network 2. Scan for available servers 3. Access web interface 4. Update firmware to latest version 5. Fix date and time 6. Configure static IP address
  • 30. Server setup Server Setup 30 • The server can be reached and configured from its web interface. To open the server web interface open the web browser and enter: http://serverip:5051 • At the first access the following credentials must be used: username: service password: password It will be requested to change the password for the next access.
  • 31. Server setup Server Setup 31 Updating the server’s firmware to latest version Fixing the server’s date and time
  • 32. Server setup Server Setup 32 • All Thinknx Servers are, by default, configured to use DHCP if the network will allow it. • In the absence of a DHCP service, it will acquire the following default IP address: 192.168.0.200. • It is always advised to switch from DHCP to a fixed IP address which will allow the user to know the server IP address at any moment. • Whenever a fixed IP is used, the server will always be reachable at the IP address 192.168.24.254/30. Changing IP address of the server
  • 34. Creating the first project Creating the first project 34 The data required by the wizard tool is: • Project name • Server type and serial number • Server IP address • Geo-localization coordinates (optional) • List of users (optional) • Licenses (optional) Projects can be created using a dedicated wizard tool, which will be automatically launched by clicking on the “New” button.
  • 35. Creating the first project Creating the first project 35 • Enabling/Disabling functions (located in a menu to the left) • Creating new pages under each function • Adding different elements for each page (buttons, pictures, indicators, etc) • Creating System objects to be linked to their corresponding elements in the interface (HVAC controller, RGB controller, etc) Once the project is created, it is now possible to start designing the interface. The integrator will be able to do the following:
  • 37. Deploying the project Deploying the project 37 • Permits to directly upload the project from within the Configurator to the server • It requires that the server is connected on the same network (locally) as the PC running the Configurator • All client devices should be available on site to receive the project file from the PC running the Configurator • It is very fast and convenient during design and testing phase Using Local Network • From the configurator the project is compressed, encrypted and uploaded to Thinknx Cloud server that will push the project back to the Thinknx server. • Permits to deploy the project remotely without the need to be on site. • The server must have an internet connection and should have Thinknx Cloud enabled. • It is slower than the previous method but much more practical Using Thinknx Cloud
  • 38. Deploying the project Deploying the project 38 Using the Local network 2. Deloy to Client: SAME NETWORK! 1. Deploy to Server: From configurator: Deploy  Web server for thinknx apps Enter URL provided by Configurator on bottom screen
  • 39. Deploying the project Deploying the project 39 Using the Cloud 1. Enable Cloud on server web page. 2. Enable Cloud inside project on Configurator. 3. Upload to the Cloud. 4. Download project on client using Cloud.
  • 41. Authenticating Clients Authenticating Clients 41 Using the Local network Whenever the client uses the Thinknx application, a connection to the server is established. The first time the client opens the loaded project, the server requests an authentication of the device. The Client Authentication is done on the server’s web page, under Server -> Licenses & Codes. • Copy the last connected client code and paste it in the field under the table. • Click on “Add client code” and check the “Enabled” box.
  • 42. Authenticating Clients Authenticating Clients 42 Using the Cloud Another way for authentication is by using the «username» and «password» of each user created inside the configurator. This authentication method requires «Thinknx Cloud» to be enabled, as well as «Automatic Authentication».
  • 43. Authenticating Clients Authenticating Clients 43 Via OTP A third way for authentication is by using a one-time password (OTP) generated by the admin user and entered on the new client device. This authentication method requires «Thinknx Cloud» to be enabled, and «Use OTP authentication». To generate the OTP, the Admin user should access the Advanced Settings in the Thinknx UP app, and create a new user.
  • 45. Client – Server Connection Client-Server Connection 45 General During the normal usage of the Thinknx app, the device running the app (client) needs to connect to the server. In addition to the local connection available, a remote connection can be done in several ways depending on the characteristics of the internet connection available at server location. Possible scenarios are: 1. Static and Public IP • The external IP is static and doesn’t change after router reboot or connection renewal. • The IP given from the Internet provider is directly accessible from the Internet. 2. Dynamic and Public IP • The external IP changes at router reboot or after connection renewal. • The IP given from the Internet provider is directly accessible from the Internet. 3. Not Public IP (using Thinknx Cloud) • The IP given from the internet provider is not directly reachable from the internet because it is part of a sub-network or behind NAT.
  • 46. Client – Server Connection Client-Server Connection 46 1. Static and Public IP In this scenario, the server is always reachable from a given static and public IP. The IP has to be inserted into the External IP field of the Configurator. Clients will try to connect directly to this IP. Since the server is usually behind a router, the router has to be configured to forward connections to the server. Public IP 2.2.2.2 Internal IP 192.168.1.1 Client will always try to connect to external public IP. Client will connect to 2.2.2.2 Even if the client connects from the same LAN it will try to connect to external IP unless the option “search for local server” is enabled on the client app IP 192.168.1.5 CONS: • Router should be configured to forward port 7550 TCP to the server internal IP (192.168.1.5) PROS: • It is the fastest possible connection and the more reliable • All the services are available
  • 47. Client – Server Connection Client-Server Connection 47 2. Dynamic and Public IP This scenario is very similar to the previous one but in order to overcome the problem tied to not having a static IP, a dynamic DNS is used. Thinknx offers a free Dynamic DNS service configurable from the server pages. With this service a host name will be associated to the public IP of the router that will always be translated to the correct actual IP. Public IP 2.2.2.2 Internal IP 192.168.1.1 Client will always try to connect DNS name myhome.my.thinknx.net myhome.my.thinknx.net is translated to actual IP 2.2.2.2 Even if the client connects from the same LAN it will try to connect to Dyn DNS host unless the option “search for local server” is enabled on the client app IP 192.168.1.5 CONS: • Router should be configured to forward port 7550 TCP to the server internal IP (192.168.1.5) • Some connections holes can be possible while IP changes PROS: • It is faster than Cloud connections • All the services are available
  • 48. Client – Server Connection Client-Server Connection 48 3. Not Public (Using Thinknx Cloud) In case none of the previous scenarios are available on site, the user can use Thinknx Cloud to provide a remote connection between clients and servers. This can be done by enabled the “Cloud Automatic Connection” from the configurator, and choose it as “Local and Cloud”. Server is always connected to Cloud If a client connects from the Internet then the connection is established using a tunnel created by means of the cloud Cloud encrypted tunnel If the client connects from the same LAN of the server then a direct connections is performed PROS: • No router configuration needed • Connection always available CONS: • Cloud server can cause delays in case of poor network connection • Some services are not fully available at the moment (cameras,...)
