eHouse LAN Home Automation system – opened protocol of communication

eHouse LAN, PRO, Wi-Fi Smart House can be integrated with any systems / devices and software through open protocol TCP/IP and UDP.
It is possible to send control commands to each eHouse LAN, Pro, WiFi controller using TCP/IP client application. To create your own software, there are 3 types of authentication to the controller:

  • XOR Password – password hashed variable code received from the server
  • plain password – a simple password
  • No checking authorization – open access

It is required to set the minimum desired level of authorization for each controller configuration. Safer methods of authentication are also active for the visualization panels and eHouse system applications for configuration.
eHouse LAN, WiFi, PRO controllers send their status as the UDP broadcasts, so that any number of panels can receive this information in a common LAN.
