For more than 15 years, EIBPORT has been offering the latest technologies for contemporary building visualisation and automation – and will continue to do so. Future can come.

VISUALISE. AUTOMATE & INTEGRATE.

The EIBPORT connects KNX or EnOcean building control with the IP world. Create individual visualisations in the editor with CONTROL L, almost automatically with CUBEVISION 2, or combine both visualisation types for even more comfortable control. The visualisations have been extended by a camera archive, the long-term data recording for up to three years and the door communication. Whether simple or complex – use over 50 integrated services for almost all automation tasks in building automation. Program your own control sequences with the graphical LOGIKEDITOR or integrate third-party applications such as Amazon® Alexa. The LOGIKEDITOR offers a simulation mode, search and documentation functions, as well as the possibility of loading and exporting logic groups. Via the integrated web platform logikeditor.de, you can download additional ready-made logic groups for many areas of application free of charge. Via a secure connection, you can also control and maintain the EIBPORT remotely. The integrated VPN server makes the setup especially easy. The EIBPORT also functions as an IP router in the KNX installation and as a programming interface to the ETS.

EIBPORT V3 – ALL FUNCTIONS AT A GLANCE:

Individual building visualisation with CONTROL L

With CONTROL L the EIBPORT offers a versatile, platform-independent visualisation for tablets, touch panel PCs & Co. Use our provided templates or design your visualisation completely individually. The comfortable CONTROL L editor offers a multitude of ready-made visualisation elements such as buttons, sliders, pop-up windows and RTR components in addition to the unique live mode. Create top visualisations at breathtaking speed with style sheets, master pages and integrated ESF data import.

CUBEVISION 2

CUBEVION 2 automatically scales to the respective display, so that the same visualisation can be used from the Smartphone to the desktop system. With the «Smart Function Creator» you can create your own scenes directly in CUBEVISION 2, In addition, CUBEVISION 2 can be integrated into CONTROL L to combine the advantages of both applications.

GRAPHICAL LOGIKEDITOR

With the graphical LOGIKEDITOR you can easily create even complex applications. With the search and documentation functions, you always have an overview. Thanks to the possibility of loading and exporting logic groups, you can reuse functions once created in different projects, saving time and costs. The platform «logikeditor.de» provides many ready-made logic groups for immediate use. Simulate complex scenarios before transferring them to the live system and use the intelligent log to display and restore previous states. Of course we have developed the LOGIKEDITOR web-based – so you remain independent of operating systems and end devices.

QUESTION ANSWER
The certificate has expired. Perform a firmware update and check and reset your system time if necessary. If this does not help, create a new certificate via VPN root.
The changes in the visualisation are not displayed. Although the changes are uploaded to the EIBPORT, the cache in the browser prevents the changes from being displayed on the client. Please clear the cache.
iOS devices cannot connect via OpenVPN despite the current version. Delete the 4 lines "[Inline]" (end) from the exported client configuration file using a text editor and save the file again before using it for iOS systems.
Mobile Devices do not play a warning tone of the status indicator element in CONTROL L. On Android devices there is a workaround using the chrome://flags.chrome://flags/#disable-gesture-requirement-for-media-playback

Details
With mobile devices, audio files are only played back after user interaction. Since this does not necessarily have to take place beforehand with a status indicator, no sound is heard. On Apple devices there is unfortunately no workaround: even the Chrome Flags are not available here because Chrome has to use the Safari Engine here as well.

Control L + Firefox:
Instructions for Mozilla Firefox to enable playback or check the browser settings:

- Open Mozilla Firefox
- Enter "about:config" in the address line of the tab and open it.
- Accept warning message.
- The advanced configuration of Firefox appears.
- Enter "autoplay" in the search field.
- In the current Firefox version, two hits appear in the settings.
Both are up by default:
+ media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground;true
+ media.autoplay.enabled;true
Means: The browser may play sounds, but only if the tab is active.
- Any changes, e.g. to allow background tabs to play tones, are made by double-clicking on one of the above settings.
- Restart browser.

EIBPORT V2.1 Load visualisation project into the EIBPORT V3. The EIBPORT V2.1 manages the CONTROL L visualisation data in a different format. If you import the backup from the EIBPORT V2.1 you get the error message "no visualisation projects found". To use your old backup you have to convert it into the new visualisation format. The conversion from XML to JSON is done in the visualisation editor. Once you log in to the editor, the conversion is performed.

Note: even if you try to log in with correct login data, the visualization will report an invalid input as long as the project data has not been converted.

What do I have to consider when using Gmail / gmail as SMTP server? SMTP Server Port:
Since we do not use SSL, but TLS, the port number 587 should be used here.Two-factor authentication:
The authentication with dispatch of confirmation codes cannot be used in the conventional way in EIBPORT. However, there is a workaround with so-called "app passwords", see https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833
Which EnOcean devices are supported by EIBPORT? In the download section you can find many supported devices in the documentation. For further questions, please contact us personally.
Is an antenna extension possible? In case the antenna cable of our supplied magnetic base antenna is too short for your purposes, please note the following
- Use a ready-made antenna extension cable
- lowloss, damping as low as possible
- 5m length of the extension cable should not be exceeded.
The EIBPORT is not found in the ETS as programming interface. Activate the KNXnet/IP tunneling.
The EIBPORT reboots constantly. 1 A loop has been programmed in the job editor or logic editor by mistake.
2. The EIBPORT sends requests with Internet access (e.g. e-mail dispatch) and the entries for DNS server or gateway are missing. Please add them.
Is it possible to access the EIBPORT V3 via HTTPS? Yes. So that the web page (visualisation "Control L" and "CUBEVISION") can be accessed via HTTPS, please write "[https://]https://" in front of the IP address of the EIBPORT in the address line of the browser.
Since the certificate in the EIBPORT and also in the MODULES is a self-signed certificate, you will receive a warning message within the browser interface. Click on "Advanced" and then on "Go to <IP address> (unsafe)" to confirm that you want to access the page. If you have activated the storage of cookies in your browser, you will automatically be taken to the secure page on your next visit. Note: Please use port 443 for this purpose.
Is it possible to reset the EIBPORT V3? Recovery system in the EIBPORT
From the production date 11.11.2020, the EIBPORT will be delivered with a recovery system. Visually, this device is identified by a black dot located between the KNX programming button and the programming LED.
If the EIBPORT can no longer be found, e.g. in the BAB STARTER, the EIBPORT can be restored to the delivery state with the help of the recovery system.
The EIBPORT can only be set to recovery mode during the boot (start) phase. To do this, the KNX programming button (bottom right) must be held down while the operating voltage is applied. This applies to all EIBPORT variants. The programming button must remain pressed until the red programming LED lights up. From this moment on, the EIBPORT starts the recovery mode. The programming button can now be released. During this process, the device must not be disconnected from the power supply under any circumstances.
The recovery takes about 15 minutes. During this time, the progress is indicated by the four device LEDs on the front of the EIBPORT. It starts with only one (the upper) LED flashing. Then it continues successively with more and more LEDs flashing. When all LEDs stop flashing and go out, the EIBPORT restarts after recovery. Now the EIBPORT is reset to the factory settings and the IP addresses and network parameters from the manual apply again.
Der EIBPORT wird in der ETS nicht als Programmierschnittstelle gefunden. In this case, please download the following document as a solution: EIBPORT_KNXnetIP_ETS_20161122_EN
The programming is not carried out and aborts with the following error message: "Cannot complete action. An ADPU length of X bytes is required, while only 15 are available on this bus interface." "Long frames" are not supported. A workaround is to activate compatibility in the ETS. A detailed explanation of this can be found at the KNX Association at the following address: https://support.knx.org/hc/de/articles/115003353249-Details
