This brand new version brings some new features and some improvements!
We added support for the VMB4AN: you can view the current values (*)
The time sync (NTP) to the bus often didn’t work. This is now solved in this version.
Visualization via the logging will be added in a future version.
New: Frontier silicon
A total new range of music players supported! Music devices based on the Frontier Silicon chipset can now be operated from within Home center the same way Sonos is operated. This means you can stop / start the player, navigate through the current playlist, set volume, control the mute and integrate them in your Home automation system via the logic, so you can operate them through the buttons in your house and add them for example to the all off operation.
Manage music interfaces
You can now rename and remove unwanted music devices via the settings in the web interface.
2N Access unit
Now also the 2N access units are supported. The available buttons are available as toggles and inputs to operate or to use in the logic interface. They are detected automatically at startup and user name and password can be managed in the settings in the web interface.
Reversed the order of the regimes, so they are in the same order as in PlusConfig.
Bugfix: when scanning different MIN ranges, thermostats and dimmers from previously scanned ranges couldn’t be operated anymore
When a Sonos was in the network before the Luxom DS88L was available, Home center didn’t connect automatically to the Luxom home automation system.
Logging is now available in the Windows client via the About box.
The Windows client will now look for the home center server in all network interface (in case you have virtual networks active)
Improved start up of Home center server (previously could take up to 30 sec.)
When adding new components to a zone, in some cases you couldn’t operate them immediately.
VMB7IN minimum energy value was not correct in Windows client
Glass panels heater icon didn’t light up in the Home center clients
Due to modifications at Clickatell and CM Gateway, we had to modify the SMS interface.
2N intercom support
We added great integration which goes beyond showing live camera feed in Home center.
It is now possible to operate the in- and outputs of the 2N intercom through Home center.
For example, if you connect the 2N to open a door or gate, by using a card reader, you can react on each card individually
when card 1 is read, open the gate and turn on the light of the drive way and garage 1,
when card 2 is used, open the gate and turn on the light of the drive way and garage 2
Or just react upon opening the door: turn on the light at the front door and the hallway
you can also open the gate with a press of a button connected to your home automation system or from one of the home center clients.
Hikvision camera’s can now also be added to the system. More info at
DS88L Luxom module is now supported
Bugfix regarding detecting the Luxom DS65L
Improved connection loss recovery
From now on, after updating the Home center server interface, the Windows client can be downloaded automatically and the setup is loaded for you. You just need to click next & finish to update the Windows client
Internal stability improvements
Sometimes the login wasn’t stored for the Windows client
Possible error in Windows client when composing the bar
This update mainly contains some improvements and bugfixes.
New in this update
Feedback from inputs is now visible in all clients.
Velbus VMB7IN energy measurement now supports the liter and m³ and shows 2 decimals. Execute read changes to get the correct values!
Velbus momentaries are removed: please replace them manually with designated inputs!
Windows client: shade button now works exactly like in the iOS app and Web app: going up and down now toggles in stead of separate function for the upper half and lower half of the button. Also it’s now more clear when the shade is open or closed.
Velbus: Macro’s are no longer created because they are obsolete, since all inputs are available. Existing macro’s are not removed and still work.
Windows client: from the ‘About’ screen you can now directly download the correct version of the Windows client (this will be useful in future versions of Home center)
Web: background color of zones was not visible
Web: full rebuild of settings due to modifications since Chrome 43
Windows client: improved login: better message when trying to log in with a wrong username and password
Logic: rules which contain a ‘=’ in the URL didn’t open the correct web page.

Infrared capabilities: Integration with IR devices of Global Caché Operate ventilation, shades, air-conditioner, decoder, TV, amplifier, … devices NOT connected to your home automation… with your home automation!
Automated custom messages on Velbus OLED glass panels: Sonos and custom messages
Improvements and bug fixes
In the windows client, you can make a full copy of a zone in ‘Manage zones’
When doing ‘read changes’, ‘full reset’ and at initial setup, a progress on the scanning of the bus is shown on screen (web and Windows Client)
Web interface: Status of shades was neither up or down
Logic module: when a rule triggers an input, now the ‘press’ and ‘release’ is send, before only the ‘press’ was send
Velbus: the thermostat of the VMBGPOD is now always added from the bus (Execute ‘read changes’ if you are missing a VMBGPOD thermostat)
Music Sonos: when switching between radio and playlists, some text of the previous action was still shown
In some cases the server status remained ‘not ready…’ when it actually was done. (When executing ‘read changes’ twice)
