System setup

To use Home center software you need a working Velbus home automation installation.
Other supported systems:Qbus domotica.

Home center can be installed on one or more PC’s in your home network. One PC needs to be connected to the home automation system. This PC will operate as server for the other user interfaces (Home center clients on Windows and iPhone). Of course, the PC that hosts the server application can also have the user interface installed.

Home center is designed to operate on a touch panel. But it is perfectly possible to operate on a regular PC, laptop or hand-held device with Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.



Home center server and client run on a windows PC.
Home center for iPhone runs on iOSx and must be acquired separately from the Apple App store.
