3 steps to control the BTicino MyHome system with Apple, Google, Amazon Alexa or IFTTT
- Physical installation
- Start automatic configuration
- Pairing with Apple HomeKit, Google, Amazon Alexa or IFTTT
Step 1. Physical installation
Important: for your safety and that of the components, before installing Easykon for MyHome, cut off the power supply from the electrical system.
- 12/24 V AC/DC 0.1 A power supply
- Ethernet cable with RJ-45 connector for connection to the local network (LAN)
- Compatible BTicino MyHome gateway
- Attach Easykon for MyHome to the DIN rail of the electrical panel
- Connect the 12/24 V 0.1 A power cable to the upper left connector
- Connect the Ethernet cable to the upper right connector
- Check the cabling is correct and reactivate the power supply to the electrical system
After about 30 seconds, the Easykon for MyHome status light will turn solid blue.
Step 2. Start automatic configuration
To find, identify and manage all system accessories, Easykon for MyHome must be connected to a compatible BTicino MyHome gateway.
Bticino gateways compatible with Easykon for MyHome:
Sign in to the configuration interface by entering the Easykon for MyHome IP address in the browser
Click on "Sign in"
Press the "Sign in / Unpairing" button on the Easykon device installed on the DIN rail
Select the gateway you want to connect
Check that the gateway information is correct and click on "Connect" at the top right
If the connection with the BTicino gateway is successful, Easykon for MyHome automatically identifies and configures all compatible MyHome accessories in a few seconds.
Can't see some accessories in the list after automatic configuration? Wait a few minutes and reload the page or try to manually control the accessory – Easykon will automatically add it to the list!
Make sure that the last version of the firmware is installed in the Bticino gateway before connecting Easykon for MyHome.
Easykon for MyHome assigns a default name (e.g. lightbulb 01) and automatically inserts the default characteristics for each accessory. For example, the types of BTicino MyHome actuators used to control light sources, controlled sockets or switches are automatically categorised as "Light".
To customise accessories:
Go to the Easykon for MyHome interface
Click on the "Identify" icon to find the device – the accessory you've selected will begin to flash or move
Enter the parameters by clicking on the button with the 3 dots
Change the name and/or characteristics required
Click on "Save"
See the Compatible accessories article to see the characteristics of each accessory.
Step 3. Pairing with Apple HomeKit, Google, Amazon Alexa or IFTTT
Easykon is certified by Apple HomeKit, Google and Amazon Alexa and it is compatible with IFTTT. This means you're free to choose the platform you prefer, or even use more than one at the same time.
If you are the homeowner and it's the first time you've paired Easykon for MyHome with Apple, Google or Alexa, first of all carry out the unpairing procedure. This way, you'll be sure of being the sole administrator. It is always and exclusively the administrator who chooses who to share the use of their home with.
Hold down the "Sign in / Unpairing" button on the front of Easykon for MyHome until the status light starts flashing blue.
This procedure does not alter the installation and configuration of the accessories in any way.
