3.2.3.4. First time setup

 

The next step is to configure your Domotz Agent. To do so, make sure you’ve downloaded an installed the Domotz App on your mobile device. Then simply tap on the drawer menu button and tap on “Find New Agents” towards the bottom of the menu. This will automatically detect any new Domotz Agents on your network, as long as your mobile device is connected to the same network as your Domotz Agent. You can then proceed to configuring your Domotz Agent following the steps below on your mobile device without having to know the IP address of your Domotz Agent.

 

Alternatively, you can type in the IP address and port shown in the Domotz App in a web browser on your PC. For example, if the IP address was 192.168.1.39 you type 192.168.1.39:3000 and then hit enter. You should now see the Domotz Agent webpage.

 

At this point, you’ll be asked to create an account if you don’t already have one. Please follow the on-screen instructions.

 

If you’re running any other web service on your Raspberry Pi that uses port 3000, the Domotz Agent will automatically use the next available port, i.e. 3001.

 

Once you’ve created your account, the Domotz Agent will proceed to scanning your network for devices. This will take anything from a few minutes up to 15 minutes depending on how many devices you have on your network.

 

 

This also means that it’ll take some time before all of your devices appears in the Domotz App on your smartphone or tablet. Once the scan has finished, click/tap Done to continue the to the Domotz Agent web UI.

 

Note that the setup of the Domotz Agent will fail if the time and date isn’t set correctly on your Raspberry Pi. To fix this, simply update the time and date on your Raspberry Pi and you’ll be able to proceed with the setup.
