To simplify the setup of a new Flukso the configuration is taken from the local webinterface to the mysmartgrid server. This reduces the complexity of the setup significantly as one does not have to deal with local ip addresses. In addition the performance issues of the old wizard are circumvented.
The user gets his Flukso including the device itself, a power supply, a network cable and a manual containing a shared secret.
The setup consist of the following steps.
The Flukso is first connected to the router of the user using the supplied network cable. Considering the standard configuration of common routers the Flukso will receive a valid network configuration using the DHCP protocol or via IPv6 autoconfiguration. The success of this step will be indicated by the lan led on the device itself.
After establishing the link, the Flukso tries to communicate with the msg server and sends a heartbeat containing the shared secret. The success of this step will be indicated by the globe led on the Flukso.
The user can now login on the msg web platform and link her device to the account by entering the shared secret. The user will then be asked to configure the device.
The following information have to be configured:
After each step of the configuration the information is sent to the Flukso and feedback has to be shown to the user. In addition the device indicates success of the steps via its leds. A working WiFi connection is indicated by the WiFi led, a working sensor configuration is indicated by the heartbeat led.
When using WiFi the user can now disconnect the wired interface and the setup proces is finished.
