GROP-ON timerbox - First steps

1) You need

  • Ethernet cable
  • Computer, smartphone or tablet
    • First steps is easier to do with device what has big screen, laptop or computer screen
    • Web browser Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera, Safari or some other modern browser
  • Router / WLAN AP
    • Next things might not be necessary, but very useful in some cases
      • Router / WLAN AP admin user and password (admin access)
        • By default some routers username is admin and password is admin.
        • Bottom of router device might have sticker where you can find username and password
      • Router / WLAN AP local area network IP-address
        • Usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
        • IP-address can be found in sticker bottom of the device

2) Timerbox introduction

a) Unplug the power supply cable from the Ethernet port next to the power supply. There are two portions of the grommet, a rubber gasket and a via-shut-off valve that is screwed into the via-hose.

Thread the shut-off valve through the Ethernet cable and place the rubber seal around the cable.

(picture coming soon)

b) Next, attach the sensors, the timerbox and sensors connectors are "braided" at certain points, the sensor connector is plugged into the timerbox connector, and then the connection is protected by screwing the threaded part that attaches the sensor to the timerbox - the connection is dusty and waterproof.

c) Connect the Ethernet cable attached to the timerbox to the router / access point. Also connect the power cord to the power supply.

 

3) Launching Timerbox Software

Open the web browser and enter the address bar 192.168.1.225 (Timerbox's IP address works in the same way as you would write in www.grop.fi, with the difference that the Timerbox runs on a local area network and therefore does not have a domain).

The Timerbox interface should now be visible if the user interface does not appear - try refreshing the page / re-entering the address again.

If the user interface still does not open, enter the IP address of the router in the address bar and check its IP address for the timerbox (if required, contact Customer Service).

 

4) Initial Settings

Timerbox automatically retrieves the time from the Internet. If timerbox does not get time off the Internet, it must be manually set.

The time must be correct because the timed functions are performed based on it.

Next, it is advisable to create an ID and password so that other people using the local area network can not adjust the timerbox (making login settings is not mandatory).

To connect the timerbox to your local area network (router / access point) using a wireless WLAN, follow these steps:

The timerbox can be simultaneously connected to an Ethernet cable and a WLAN, for purposes of usability it has no significance other than that the timerbox has two local IP addresses (wired and wireless). As described above, the timerbox address is composed of 192.168.1.225 and 192.168.1.135.

Now the timerbox is ready to be programmed.

5) Programming sockets (software automation)

On the front end of the user interface, see "Socket programs", start programming with the "New task" button.

Enter a name for the task and select the socket. (Task name = name of the task, for example Light on on 12)

Next, specify the rule for the outlet socket: time or sensor value.

In the example set time, switch the socket on (Turn ON).

Run for seconds is left unchecked, with this setting you can set the socket on / off at the desired time in seconds.

You still have to choose when to turn on the socket.

Each setting is used to set the socket at a time when the specified time is reached.

Repeat repeats the socket programming as specified every 1-59 minutes

For example, it suits well for water pump control, set Run for seconds: 30sek and Repeat every nth minute: 15 minutes. The pump is turned on for 30 seconds every 15 minutes.

Quick means quick setting, socket programming is performed Startup = As soon as the timerbox is started, Hourly = Every Hour, Daily = Every Day (00: 00/24: 00), Weekly = Every Week, Mothly = Every Month, Yearly = Every year.

Finish programs by pressing Save.

To enable programming, the Socket Programs section at the beginning is the Save settings button. By pressing it, programming is enabled.

Also remember to back up your programming with the Backup button.

Programming backups do not take much time and it is very useful when you want to create a variety of settings for programming (for example, winter, spring, summer and fall).
