3.First time setup Synology
The next step is to configure your Domotz Agent.
By clicking Open on fro the first time you will be brought to to the Domotz Agent activation page.
If you already have a Domotz account, you can login straight away. Otherwise you can create a domotz account signing up from here (please make sure you specify the right Country):
Once logged in you can finally activate your agent, with the following steps:
- Assign a name to the Agent
- Specify whether you run the agent at home or office
- Press the “Activate your agent” button
Once this has done , the Domotz Agent will proceed to scanning your network for devices. This will take anything from a few minutes up to 15 minutes depending on how many devices you have on your network.
At this point you can download the mobile app (if you do not have already) and open it.
By pressing “Done” you can enter the local Domotz Agent Web UI
4.Agent web UI features
The Domotz Agent has also its own local web UI, although it has a limited scope of features right now.
This is not the main Domotz app, which is cloud based, and it is only meant to provide a small subset of the Domotz features.
Here you can find some information such as:
- Agent Info
- Network Info
- Route Analysis test
- Speet Test
