First time setup

The next step is to configure your Domotz Agent. To do so, you need to know the IP address of your Raspberry Pi. The easy way to do this is to move the mouse pointer to the top right hand side corner of the Raspbian GUI to the icon that looks like a pair of networked computers. This should display the IP address of your Raspberry Pi.

Next, open a web browser on your PC and type in the the IP address of your Raspberry Pi, followed by :3000. For example, if the IP address was 192.168.1.39 you type 192.168.1.39:3000 and then hit enter. You should now see the Domotz Agent webpage. At this point, you’ll be asked to create an account if you don’t already have one. Please follow the on-screen instructions.

If for some reason you can’t access the Domotz Agent on port 3000, type the following and hit enter in the terminal window on the Raspberry Pi and you’ll see the IP address and port you should be connecting to: service domotz status

Once you’ve created your account, the Domotz Agent will proceed to scanning your network for devices. This will take anything from a few minutes up to half an hour depending on how many devices you have on your network. This also means that it’ll take some time before all of your devices appears in the Domotz App on your smartphone or tablet. Once the scan has started, you can close the browser window, as the network scan will continue to run in the background.
