In addition to being able to operate your house via the ZipaTile and smartphone, it is possible to go to a management environment via your browser. You also need this environment to make rules.
In this screen you will find the Zipabox data. In addition, you can also add another box here so that you can switch if you have multiple Zipaboxes.
Here you will find a list of all modules/devices. A distinction has been made between virtual modules and physical (z-wave) modules. If you open a module you will see the different end points. You can indicate per endpoint whether or not it should be shown on the dashboard. You can also change the name.
When configuring the module you can find all the settings (parameters) of the module. Zipato always gives the modules very good support, often with all configuration options. Other manufacturers can take an example here. Often the support of new modules is quickly arranged.
You can add a new module by clicking on the "add module" button. Then you can select which module you want to add from the list. For adding the Fibaro Smoke Detector, for example, choose generic zwave. The module is always reset first and then added. Adding is unfortunately not always easy. For example, you must place the Fibaro door sensor very close to the box to add it. Sometimes this requires some patience.
In addition to having the option to add physical modules such as a lamp, it is also possible to add a virtual switch, meters and dimmers. You can use this for example to store values. It is also possible, for example, to give a value to a meter via a url (http request).
