Most of the configuration is completed from within the
HDL Control app, available free from the iTunes App Store. Typically, a system will be created & commissioned using an installer's iOS device, and then deployed to the end user's device if required.
When you first open the app, you will see the following:
From this screen you can either:
- Create a System
- Load an Existing System
- Load a Demo System
Load an Existing System is used to put a copy of the system on another device, whereas
Create a System will create a new system on the cloud system.
Create a System to begin the system creation process.
Enter your cloud login details and the system information:
System Name must be unique with your cloud account, the
friendly name is presented to the end user, eg 'Home' or 'Office'
Once you have entered the information, tap 'Create' in the top right. The app will then attempt to communicate with the cloud server to create the new, blank system.
The following conditions must be true for this operation to succeed:
- The iOS device must have access to the internet.
- The entered username / password must be correct.
- The System name must not already exist.
- The cloud account must be activated, i.e. the current monthly payment must have been made.
