How the Climax Home Portal Platform Works

What is Home Portal Server?
Home Portal Server is the CHPP’s IP networking software. It
enables monitoring personnel to operate alarm systems via a web
browser and end users to manage their homes via a mobile
ARN Gateway
Server Installation
A web space is required for the setup of Home Portal Server. You
can either rent a web space and install the server in your location or
rent a server hosting service, which requires neither hardware setup
nor maintenance. After you have acquired the web space and
server, the Climax support team will install the software
environment for you.
SMS alarm reporting: The gateway enables Home
Portal Server to send SMS alarm reports and other
notifications to end users via a local telecommunications
network. You can activate the gateway’s SMS service
after inserting into the gateway a SIM card purchased
from a local telecommunications provider.
Home Portal Application
End users can access Home Portal Server via a mobile application
on iPhones, iPads or Android devices. Climax can customize the
application for you according to your server information. Please
provide us with your Apple and Android developer account
information and we will put your own Home Portal app on Apple’s
App Store and the Google Play Store for your customers to
ARN (Alarm Reception and Notification) Gateway
provides the following services for the CHPP:
Safe Home Portal Server registration: To access
Home Portal Server’s smart home services, end users
need to register on the server’s website. The gateway
allows the server to send SMS authentication messages
to end users after their registration, thus strengthening
the security of using the server’s services.
Alarm reception: The gateway receives event reports
from Climax’s IP/GPRS control panels and forwards the
data in CID/SIA formats via RS232 or IP to the CMS.
Making Simplicity the First Priority
The CHPP provides easy-to-use interactive interfaces for monitoring personnel and
end users to manage security and smart home services. The platform can be
accessed via a web browser or mobile application.
Web Access
The CHPP’s web browser offers three different interfaces for three types of account authorities:
end users, dealers and administrators. These three levels serve different purposes.
• End user level: This level allows the end user to manage an individual alarm system, receive
status reports, control system modes, adjust system settings, and operate devices.
• Dealer level: This level is designed for the dealer to monitor and manage the control panels
registered under the dealer’s name.
• Administrator level: This level is provided for the administrator to manage the entire Home
Portal Server.
