New features and improvements

  • Digest authentication for cameras
    When setting up a camera, a choice can be made between the “Basic” and “Digest” authentication procedure. Note: Digest authentication works in the HTML/Ajax Visu and in the HS Client.
  • If-Then logic mode
    A logic node that was developed with HSL2.0 and uses the URL endpoints. This provides the end user with a simple interface for configuring If-Then rules.
  • Scene logic node
    Two logic nodes that were developed with HSL2.0 and use the URL endpoints. This provides the end user with a simple interface for configuring scenes.
  • Sonos logic node
    Two logic nodes for controlling up to 8 Sonos speakers.

Configuration simplification

  • References
    A list of references can be called at any time for all the available elements in the project
  • Functions Remove including references
    In the area of building structure and also trades, the function “Remove with references” can be used
  • Window arrangements
    The arrangements of the individual windows function templates, plug-ins, building structure, menu etc. can be quickly defined for the individual configuration steps using buttons (the existing profiles are used for this). The arrangements can be adapted and saved.
  • User group filtering
    The assignment of the elements to individual user groups can be filtered. Then only the elements of the filter user groups are displayed.
  • Function in the trade
    A function template is not always automatically inserted in the Trades view, but only if required.
