The main feature we needed out of iRidium Server was scheduling and we have not got it in a usable format. This is very disappointing.

Having to use complex JS programming (yes it is complex for most installers) will mean we do not get the take up of iRidium server that we were expecting

I already have a scheduling script (that is much easier to setup than the iRidium Server version in the scenes and macros example). We just run this in one project on a PC on the network that is only used for scheduling and iRidium Gate (ie what iRidium server was going to replace)

All the installer needs to do in my script (and I have done this for them):

delay: driver name: command: hex or text:

"0; Clipsal Gate; ON //JONES/254/56/1; false";

And with the use project tokens in the GUI Editor for if the schedule is enabled, the day of week(not shown), and time and we can much more easily do scheduling:

iRidium server is not solving the scheduling problem - it is making it worse as it is far too complicated.

What we need is a GUI interface to setup scheduling without the need for any JavaScript. 90% of installers are not programmers and this is one of the big preventers of installers using iRidium.

Please re-visit this with urgency as I cannot promote scheduling in the current format as the solution.

In this instance, iRidium server is just replacing a PC. Not a convincing selling point given the increase in complexity for installers :(

Hello everybody!

Did you try to work with this option? Can you have any questions?
We are waiting your feedback!

I suggest implementing the possibility to connect and read any (majority of) databases. Majority of ASC equipment write their databases in the .mdb format. Support of this database format could expand field of iRidium use.

would it be possible that i3 Server pro can act and react like a real HDL-Buss Device?

In a real installation, there is a mix of Control-Panels like an iPad/iPhone/Android-Tab and real HDL-Bus enabled panels like the DLP panel or switches. It wouldn't be possible to control actions on the i3 server from other panels than i3 panels.

For example, it should be possible to send dimmervalues directly to the i3 server. the i3 server should act like a 12channel dimmer for example. So it would be possible to trigger normal dimming actions from every HDL Bus Device like it would be a real dimmer. Or for example the i3 server should have UniversalSwitches like the HDL LogicModule, so that we can set and read this UniversalSwitches from any HDL-Bus device, etc.

So, please include a method to add "virtual" HDL-Bus-Devices per channel basis like a DimmerChannel or a UniversalSwitch. Also, additional "virtual" devices would be fine like a temperatur module or a curtain module that gets the values from within i3 Server variables...

Also, please include an option to update the current time and GMT+/-offset via the i3 Server to the LogicModule. So that the annoying daylightsaving time would be automatically corrected on the HDL-Bus.


With best regards,

i'am a user from the beginning, and i like whats going on with iRidium Mobile.

would it be possible to make a iRidiumServer version for the whole synology nas family too?

either as a normal programm package or as a docker? would be really really cool if it runs on the synology nas with two ethernet ports. so eth1 could be used as the normal "house"-lan port and eth2 could be connected to the ip/ethernet interface of the bus system. and in most cases, a nas is allready there and running 24/7, so why don't use it as the server? and its linux, and stable too...


with best regards,

martin lang


Hello Martin,

We plan to support Synology and Qnap, but not in the first release

At the moment reading of KNX channels on the UMC server is not supported.

How can the request for reading from the KNX system be processed by scripts?

Здравствуйте, Евгений

Простите за длительное ожидание ответа. Данный функционал нельзя реализовать на скриптах, требуется доработка в серверном приложении.

For this type of controller the feature of time synchronization is essential.

Vladimir Chernov 2 weeks ago

In 1.0.11 version of iRidium server the built-in NTP service is used.

Linux x86, x64, Raspberry PI, Logic Machine, Wiren Board: If NTP is on, iRidium server takes time there, if NTP is off iRidium server takes the system time.

UMC, OnBox*: If NTP is on, iRidium server takes time there, the time zone can be changed via web-interface. If NTP is off iRidium server takes the system time.

* - to use NTP service on OnBox, check that you use the latest version of the system image. You can download it here

Hi, just as suggestion it would be better if the Iridium Server will start as Windows SERVICE. This will allow the start of the iridium server also if you were not logged into the system.

Theo Derks - NL (distributor) 1 year ago in Server Solutions / OnBox Server • updated by Oksana (expert) 3 weeks ago 5
Every installer knows: you have to use static IP-addresses in Home Automation devices.

This is one of the most important issues for a stable Home Automation configuration.

But in the current version, the OnBox can not be configured with a static IP-address. This is absolutely needed in the first public release of iRidium Server for OnBox. NO INSTALLER will use Unix commands to set a static IP-address in the OnBox. NO WAY.

Please add a graphical and easy-to-use module to configure ALL network settings of OnBox iRidium server:

Configure DHCP or Static

If choose static:
Subnet mask

Hello Theo,

Now we have a the OnBox system image file for testing (static IP and ntp time):


Instruction for OnBox Firmware Replacing:


You should use version server from 1.0.11

Добавим в вэб панель, этот функционал.
