Z/IP Sample Client

Connect to a network

Connection Modes

The user can either connect to the board(Board Connection) or to the portal(Portal Connection.) Selecting either opens a new window based on the input type.

Board Connection

In this selection the user is communicating with ZWare in local mode i.e.,talking to ZWare in the board directly. In order to login to the server the user has to know it's IP address. The username and password is constant and hard-coded in the application. Once the user has entered a valid IP address the application will connect to the server.

Portal Connection

In this selection the user is communicating with the ZWare in portal mode i.e.,talking to the ZWare via a portal. In order to login the server the user should have registered a username and password with the server and configured it to connect to the zipgateway. The default URL for connecting in portal mode is z-wave.sigmadesigns.com. Once the user has entered a valid username and password the application will connect to the server.

On successfully connecting to the server (using the register/login.php page) in either mode the Application will display the current version (retrieved using the zw_version web api) of ZWare followed a list of nodes currently connected to the server.
