Configuration

The parameterization of the HOOC Gateways (series H) from firmware 2.x.x can be done via browser.

The device obtains an IP address via DHCP in the factory settings. In addition, the HOOC Gateway is configured with a static IP address 172.17.17.17.

Establish connection to the HOOC Gateway

Follow the instructions below to connect (your PC) to the HOOC Gateway:

  1. Connect the HOOC Gateway to the power supply
  2. Wait until the device has started up (approx. 1min)
  3. Connect your PC to the network port of the HOOC Gateway, or to the switch to which the HOOC Gateway is connected to.
  4. Set your network adapter to the IP address 172.17.17.16 with the subnet mask 255.255.255.0
  5. In your browser (preferably Google Chrome) open the URL 172.17.17.17

Configuration KNX

connect-h-config-tool-tab-knx

HOOC offers the possibility of converting data from a KNX USB interface into data from a KNX IP gateway or KNX IP router. Thus a KNX USB interface can also be used as a “terminal device” in the Secure Remote Control service via HOOC Connect. The following settings can be made:

Setting Description
KNX enabled Enables/disables KNX functionality
Interface Name Name of the interface (displayed in the ETS)
KNX Address KNX source address of the HOOC Connect to be used
Client Addresses KNX start source address to be used for packets and number of parallel connections for (KNX IP tunneling)

The source addresses 1.1.240 to 1.1.249 are used for the setting 1.1.240 and 10 Client Address.

A commercially available KNX USB interface can be connected to USB port 1. The connection status of the KNX USB interface is displayed directly including information about the manufacturer and the model. The list below gives an overview of supported and ETS tested types.
