Let’s see in deep all the necessary steps to do:

9. Gateway address:

  • Type the Gateway address of the VIMAR gateway (Ex. 192.168.1.250).
    NOTE. VIMAR gateway will be automatically added to the current project and set as enabled. Besides, it will be automatically added to the current project also the KNX gateway reporting the same Gateway address.  It would be possible to make changes anytime getting access to the Gateways tab.

PREMISE. EVE turns VIMAR By Me devices automatically into KNX.  VIMAR By Me devices which have no KNX correspondence can be managed as VIMAR otherwise as KNX thanks to EVE capability to create virtual feedbacks.

10. Create KNX virtual feedbacks:

  • Tick the check box if you want EVE to create a KNX virtual feedback (read and write address) for VIMAR By Me devices which have no KNX correspondence.

11. Starting KNX  group address:

  • Type the starting Group address to be assigned to VIMAR devices to be turned into KNX (Ex. 11/0/0)

12. Reference CSV file folder:

  • Click Select folder to choose where to save the KNX reference CSV file. A second dialog box appears.
  • Select the File path where to save the KNX reference CSV file and confirm.
    NOTE. This is the file where is a report of all the KNX group address for all VIMAR By Me devices imported.

13. Click Ok.

Once the Import process will be done, you will be able to compare EasyTool Professional and EVE Manager database files. All devices will have been added to the current EVE project and already categorized following the structure of EVE system.

This is how the .XML file will be displayed inside the Home automations configuration software EVE Manager Pro.
