Functional overview

We came up with an accurate software solution that perfectly matched the clients’ needs. The Softcontrol Cleverhouse controller (SCC , G120 module of Ghi electronics) is connected to the internal LAN network in the house and connected to the router, which have a WAN port connected to the internet. In some cases where there are no fixed internets a GPRS modem can be connected to the SSC. The first initial setup of the SCC in done by creating a Softcontrol Cleverhouse account (SCA) . When the SCC is setup it's ready to communicate with the back-end service running in the cloud. If the user want to communicate with the SCC this is done through the front-end or a local web-server running in the SCC. The front-end are available as a web-page, an app for Android or iPhone.

When the system is setup and running the SCC controller is communicating with the Back-end and saving and getting relevant information, shown on Figure 1 with a blue dashed line. If the user need to get information from the SCC this is normally done through the cloud either by a computer, laptop, smart-phone etc. talking to the frontend, shown as a red dashed line on Figure 1. If the user is outside his own network, the tablet just need an internet connection to communicate with the cloud.
