Domoticz is open source popular home automation software which can run on WIndows, Linux, MAC and even Rasberry PI. Here you will find some information how to run Denkovi modules together with Domoticz (Thanks Rob and Domoticz Team!) More information - http://domoticz.com/
Domoticz support for Denkovi Hardware
In this moment (June 2018) there are three plugins for Denkovi hardware:
- Denkovi Smartden with LAN interface
- Denkovi Smartden IP In with LAN interface
- Denkovi Modules with LAN (HTTP) interface
The first two plugins are made by the Domoticz developers and the second is developed by Denkovi team.
We strongly recommend to migrate to the plugin Denkovi Modules with LAN (HTTP) interface because in future Domoticz updates the first two plugins (deprecated) will be removed from hardware list!
Hardware plugin Denkovi Modules with LAN (HTTP) interface - RECOMMEND
Devices, supported by this plugin:
|DAEnetIP4 - SNMP Ethernet controller with 34 digital/analog I/O||DAEnet IP4|
|DAEnetIP4 Ethernet Relay Card 5 Channel||DAEnet IP4|
|DAEnetIP4 Ethernet 12 Relay I/O Board||DAEnet IP4|
|smartDEN 16 Relay Module||SmartDEN IP 16 Relays|
|smartDEN IP-32IN Module||SmartDEN IP 32 In|
|smartDEN Notifier||SmartDEN Notifier||Reads only the inputs, notifications are not supported|
|smartDEN Logger||SmartDEN Logger||Reads only the inputs and not the SD card files|
|smartDEN IP WatchDog||SmartDEN IP Watchdog|
|smartDEN Maxi||SmartDEN IP Maxi|
Some settings for this plugin:
- Model - the device model as per the above table
- Remote address - the IP address of the module
- Port - the HTTP port of the module
- Refresh(ms) - the polling period for the I/O
- Password - the HTTP (web) password
- Due to the specific of the communication (HTTP GET requests), it is strongly recommend to log-out from the denkovi hardware device web server when working with Domoticz because either the communication will not be established either the user will be logged-of automatically every time when a request come from Domoticz server.
- Before start the Domoticz system, please be sure the HTTP / XML / JSON settings are done properly, as the image below:
Specificly, please be sure the parameters Enable XML Access and Multiple XML Access are enabled and Encrypt XML Password is disabled.
List with supported denkovi hardware (not recommend for new users)
These are the devices according to the deprecated plugins Denkovi Smartden with LAN interface and Denkovi Smartden IP In with LAN interface. These plugins are not recommend to be used for new users. Also for current projects please migrate to the plugin Denkovi Modules with LAN (HTTP) interface.

Adding new device
To add new device, go to "Setup" -> "Hardware".
Then enter the parameters and click "Add" button.
The new device will be shown.
Check the I/O of the device
Now, go to "Setup" -> "Devices". You will see all the I/O of the device. You can control and monitor them from this page as well. In that way we are sure the device is added correctly and we can proceed with the automation.
Use the I/O
It is possible easily to use the I/O just using the green arrows as shown below.
For example, the digital outputs (relays) will be show on "Switches" tab.
If you want to "send" some I/O to the dashboard, just use the "star" symbol below.
And the dashboard...
Working with PWM (Analog Outputs)
Monitor the graphics for the inputs
Some devices supports various inputs - analog, digital, temperature and they can be logged by the Domoticz system. However please note the Domoticz software must be running constantly in order to record the data.
