Getting to know the InSideControl App/HD App
Getting to know the InSideControl
App/HD App
With InSideControl, you can control your KNX installation and therefore your house with a
portable device (smartphone or tablet). To do this, the application InSideControl App or InSideControl HD App must be installed on the portable device. The portable device accesses
the KNX installation either via the local network (WLAN) or via a VPN access.
Among other things, you can use InSideControl to control lighting, blinds or heating individually or to call up multiple devices at the same time via scenes. Messages from the KNX installation can also be received (e.g., a flood message or energy consumption display).
To access your KNX installation with the App/HD App, a KNX InSideControl IP gateway (art.
no.: xxx6500-0113) must be installed in your KNX installation.
An IP gateway can be connected to up to five portable devices simultaneously. Each portable
device can be equipped with an individual configuration. This enables the access for a portable device to be restricted to specific devices in a room, for example.
An optimal connection is achieved with up to three portable devices. If more than three portable devices are connected simultaneously to an IP gateway, the transmission speed may be
reduced.
VPN access (VPN = Virtual Private Network)
With InSideControl, you can also access your KNX installation with a portable device via
WAN (Internet). See the chapter VPN access --> 13.
Supported portable devices
The App/HD App was developed for portable devices such as smartphones and tablets and
is available for the Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems.

Connecting portable devices to the IP gateway
To access your KNX installation with the App/HD App, an IP gateway (art. no. xxx6500-0113)
must be installed in your KNX installation. The IP address of the IP gateway can be assigned
via a DHCP server or via manual configuration as an ETS parameter. The exact procedure
can be found in the software application for the IP gateway.
There are two ways to access the KNX installation via the IP gateway:
•• WLAN access
•• VPN access
WLAN access
For WLAN access, the IP gateway and the portable device are in the same network (WLAN).
To control the KNX installation, the IP address/port of the IP gateway must be known to the
portable device.
You can establish the connection either automatically or manually.
Establishing an automatic connection
If one IP gateway is available in your KNX installation or no fixed IP address is assigned to
the IP gateway, the connection should be discovered automatically.
1 Open Settings (see Settings --> 29).
2 Deactivate the Demo mode option.
3 Activate the Autodiscover option.
⇒⇒ The IP gateway is searched for in the
network.
If an IP gateway is found, the App/HD App
connects automatically.

VPN access
VPN access (VPN = Virtual Private Network) authorises the portable device to access the
local network, and therefore also the KNX installation, via the Internet.
Benefits of VPN:
•• Only authorised users have access to the local network.
•• All data is encrypted.
•• The data is not changed, recorded or diverted during the transfer. This is often referred to
as a VPN tunnel.
Requirements for setting up a VPN connection:
•• Internet connection
•• The portable device and the router are prepared for a VPN connection (VPN client installed)
Attention
Risk of damage to property through unauthorised access to the KNX installation.
As soon as you access the KNX installation via the Internet, the data traffic can be
read by third parties.
•• For this connection, use only a VPN access with secure encryption for all data
packets.
•• The required hardware (VPN router) and the offerings of mobile service providers differ significantly with regard to the settings and technical possibilities
depending on the country or region.
Always have the VPN access set up and commissioned by a specialised VPN service provider. The VPN service provider selects a suitable mobile service provider
and the suitable hardware for the VPN access and ensures that the VPN is set up
properly.
Schneider Electric is not liable for performance problems and incompatibilities caused by applications, services or devices from third-party providers.
Schneider Electric does not offer technical support for setting up the VPN
access.

Meaning of the symbols
Device symbols
A device symbol represents a connection to one or more devices of your KNX installation.
The appearance and operating mode of a device symbol depend on the connected device.
ADevice name
BResult of the status query
CSymbol of the device
The status query
To ensure that the current device status is always shown in the App/HD App, InSideControl
queries the device status at different points in time. These points in time are:
•• When the App/HD App is started: All devices are queried.
•• When a room is called up: All devices of the room are queried.
•• When the device name is tapped.
The status query and update may take several seconds depending on the scope of the project and the quality of the connection.
The success or failure of the status query is shown in the App/HD App with two symbols next
to the device name:
The status query was successful, the status is known. The device can be
controlled.
The status query was unsuccessful, the status is unknown. The device
cannot be controlled.
To rectify the error:
1 Tap on the device name and connect again.
2 If no connection can be established, contact your system integrator.
Below, you will find an overview of the device symbols and their relevant options.

VPN refers to a computer network between at least two participants that uses the Internet
as a transport layer. There is no public access to this Internet connection, however. As
only specific authenticated computers participate in this network and the VPN data packets are transmitted in encrypted form, i.e., cannot be viewed by external parties, this is
also often referred to as a VPN tunnel.
Abbreviation for Wide Area Network.
A WAN is a computer network that links different local networks and individual computers
at different sites all over the world. WANs use private or public networks. The Internet is
the most widely known public network.
Wi-Fi refers to devices that are manufactured according to the Wi-Fi Alliance standard
and can communicate with each other wirelessly across all manufacturers. Certified
devices of the members are given the Wi-Fi logo.
Abbreviation for Wireless Local Area Network.
WLAN is a local network that uses wireless communication. There are ad-hoc networks
(with just two computers) and infrastructure networks in which a large number of computers communicate with each other via a central point.
In some countries, the term Wi-Fi is used as a synonym for WLAN.
