Commissioning the device with “KNX IP Secure”

  • A project is open in ETS.
  1. Add the device to the project.
  • If the project is not yet password-protected, the ‘Set project password’ window appears.
  1. Enter the password in the ‘New password’ and ‘Confirm password’ input fields, then click ‘OK’ to confirm.
  • The ‘Add device certificate’ window appears.
  1. If you have a webcam, press the ‘...’ button and then scan the QR code sticker on the device.
  1. If you do not have a webcam or are unable to read the QR code, enter the 6x6-character certificate key on the sticker on the device.
  • Once the certificate key has been entered correctly, a green checkmark appears at the end of the line. In addition, the serial numbers and the factory key of the device are displayed.
  1. Compare the displayed serial number to the serial number on the device.
  • If the serial numbers do not match, the certificate key of a different device was entered and transfer of data will not work later on.
  1. Press ‘OK’ to confirm the entries.
  • The device has been added to the project. The security functions of “KNX IP Secure” are activated automatically.

Commission device without “KNX IP Secure”

Commissioning without “KNX IP Secure”

Alternatively, the device can also be commissioned without KNX IP Secure. In this case, the device is insecure and responds like other KNX devices without the KNX IP Secure function.

To commission the device without KNX IP Secure, select the device in the ‘Topology’ or ‘Devices’ section and set the ‘Secure commissioning option’ to ‘Deactivated’ in the ‘Properties’ area of the ‘Settings’ tab.
