  • Export the Group addresses in ETS (3 levels, ….)
  • Upload the file to the iBEMI configurator

 

Step 3: Create your profile

 

  • Press the ”New” button in the [iBEMI Profiles] section and give your profile a name e.g. the house owners Surename
  • You can select which type of profile you want, a iBEMI or iBEMI light profile. See differences in Licenses: iBEMI and iBEMI Light
  • Click button Edit Profile to open your profile in iBEMI Profile Editor. See iBEMI Profile Editor: How to create your profile for further information.

 

Step 4: Add a iDevice to your project

 

  • Select the iBEMI leaf in the project view
  • Press the ”Add iDevice” and give your device a name like iPhone or iPad@home, fill in the voucher code and press ”Add”

 

Step 5: Sync iBEMI iDevice and project

 

  • in the iDevice that you want to use with that project, open Settings
    (by pressing respective button in upper left corner on starting page)
  • navigate to section License and enter license key of purchased license and press ”Register device”
  • the device is now registered and you are able to load all the profiles
    that you added for this iDevice in project view in iBEMI section

How does it work

 

image_gallery_002

 

Communication: iBEMI connects directly to KNX Bus through KNXnet/IP
Gateway. Both connection types, KNXnet/IP Tunneling and KNXnet/IP
Routing, are supported.
Managing iBEMI: You are able to create
custom profiles for your projects with the iBEMI Profile Editor. To
transfer profiles to the app, you need to purchase a license for the
iDevice which is running the app. After entering the license key in the
app, iBEMI is synchronizing data of your project and you are able to
load the custom made profiles. Once your iBEMI iDevice is registered,
you can easily synchronize it with your account by pressing ”Sync”
button in ”License” or ”Profile” section.

 

 

How to set up KNX connection

 

You find the set up for KNX connection in Profile Settings
on first page (root element in Pages treeview) in iBEMI Profile Editor.
As connection type you can either select KNXnet/IP Tunneling or
KNXnet/IP Routing. There are ”More Settings” for both connection types
to adapt the connection to your installation: For connection type
KNXnet/IP Type you could set a custom port, for KNXnet/IP Routing you
could set custom Multicast IP address and custom port.

 

How to change profile type

 

There are two different profiles types available for the App: iBEMI and
iBEMI Light. If you create new Profile, there is option ”Create iBEMI
Light profile” to create a profile which is compatible with iBEMI Light
license (see Licenses: iBEMI and iBEMI Light). You are able to easily change profile type afterwards in iBEMI Profile Editor in Profile Settings on first page (root element in Pages treeview).

 

Licenses: iBEMI and iBEMI Light

 

There are two different license types available: iBEMI and iBEMI Light.
The two license types differ in the profiles you could use with them.
An iDevice with iBEMI Light license is limited to keep one profile at a
time. Furthermore there are also limitations in the size of iBEMI Light
profiles. You are able to add up to 89 KNX widgets to an iBEMI Light
profile. There are also limitations for the full license, iBEMI.
However, these limitations (you could place more than 5000 widgets)
shouldn’t be relevant in common usage. Please contact us if you are
struggling with iBEMI limitations.

 

Limitations Profiles Levels Extension pages Sub pages Number of widgets
iBEMI 10 12 4 5 > 5000
iBEMI Light 1 1 1 0 89

 

If you are not sure, whether your custom profile exceeds iBEMI Light
limitations, we recommend to first create an iBEMI Light profile, to
test if its size is sufficient. You are always able to easily change
profile type to iBEMI in the iBEMI Profile Editor in Profile Settings. Profile settings are accessed by clicking root element in the treeview of Pages section.

 

iBEMI Profile Editor: How to create your profile

 

image_gallery

 

Pages On the left side you have the box Pages with the treeview where you can see the page layout of your profile.
I. Add a level and change the name to e.g. Floor 1, this page will be
accessible in the iphone by scrolling down from the main view.II. If you add an extention page it will be the page to the right, this
page will be accessible in the iPhone by scrolling to the right from the
main view.
You are able to move Levels and Rooms in the treeview by Drag&Drop.
Attributes In the middle you have the Attributes box with a list with all the
configurable pramaters for the selected widget (as name, knx addresses
etc.). There are ”More Settings” option available for most widgets with
optional attributes. Usually you don’t need to configure these
additional attributes.
Application preview On the right side you have the Application preview with landscape and
portrait view of the selected page. Most time you will work with the big
landscape preview. You are able to add buttons/widgets by pressing an
open spot in the page and to select buttons/widgets to change their
attributes. On all the pages you are able to add/select buttons, value
label and name label in header of the page. In addition to that you
could configure the two custom symbols in the upper left corner on the
first page (and its extension pages).Furthermore you could move
buttons to another spot in the page by Drag&Drop. You could do the
same in the small portrait preview on the right side to create a
different button layout for the page in portrait orientation.


Steps to build up your profile:

 

  1. If you open a new profile in the iBEMI Profile Editor by clicking Edit
    profile button, you will see one empty page with the chosen profile name
    in preview window. In Attributes box you will see Profile Settings. First thing that you should do is toconfigure KNX Connection according to your installation.
  2. Then you could go ahead and configure the content of the page to your needs: add buttons, add a value in upper right corner and you might also want to configure the header symbols.
  3. First page is now finished. Now you are going to add a new page. There are two options: if you want to add more buttons with kind of a global function which should be quickly accessible, you should addextension page(s) to the first page by pressing button Add Extension Page in Attributes box. Second option is to add a level page by pressing Add Level button in Pages box to start building up Level-Room structure of the profile.
  4. With extension page: proceed as with first page.
    On extension pages you are able to add up to 8 buttons. After
    finalizing the page you could again add another extension page or you
    could add a level page.
    With level page: usually you will add rooms to a level page by clicking Add Room button in Pages box. If you add a room, there will be a new room page added to the treeview in Pages box and you will see a button appearing on level page. This button is a Room Link button.
    If you press this button in the app, you will be navigated to the room
    page which is always placed to the right of the level page. If you
    create a new room, you should configure Room Link button (set name of the room and select an icon) and press the button afterwards to save selection. You could also add a conventional button to level page by clicking an open spot on the page and configuring button to your needs. You could set value lable for level page too.
  5. After creating room pages you could now add content by selecting them in treeview in Pages box and adding buttons and setting a value lable for each page. If you would like to add more buttons to one room you could add extension page(s)
    by pressing button Add Extension Page. In the app extension pages of a
    room are placed beneath the first page of the room. They share the same
    name as the room page but besides that they can be configured
    independently from room page.

There are limitations for the size of the profile. However, with iBEMI license they shouldn’t be relevant. CheckLicenses: iBEMI and iBEMI Light for further information.

More Settings
Icon for active state For Data Format 1 bit Status you could select another icon that would
only be shown if status of button is ON. You could also set another KNX
address at the field below to control the icons.
KNX Address for controlling the icons Usually the icons of a button are set according to its status. However,
if you’d like to control icons independently from status, you could set
a special KNX Address (1bit value) here to control the icons. There is a
checkbox to set if this address should be polled or not. Note: If this
KNX Address should be polled, the address should be marked as readable
in your ETS project.
KNX Address for activating second status For Data Format 1 bit Status you could indicate a second status which
is controlled through this KNX address. Second status is indicated
through a thick red border line around the button (if status is active).
Second status has higher priority than common status, meaning if both
status are active, red border color is shown around the button. There is
a checkbox to set if this address should be polled or not. Note: If
this KNX Address should be polled, the address should be marked as
readable in your ETS project.

Data Formats except Time and Date. There are default Units for Data
Formats Temperature [°C], Brightness [Lux] and Windspeed [m/s].
Scaling factor If Data Format is 2 byte float, you could set a custom scaling factor
for the value at this parameter. This is of course optional. The default
value is 0.01.

the number of decimal places of the value that should be displayed in
the value label. Defaultly there is one decimal place shown with the

Room Link

 

A room link button is automatically generated by the app if you
add a new room to a level. The button is placed on the level page –
every room link button is representanting a room in the level. If you
press a button in the app you are navigated to the corresponding room.
If you select a room link button, you could set the name of the room and
you are able to select an icon for the room link button. Room Link
buttons can’t be moved directly on level page, you could move the room
page in treeview to do so though.
