EasyPlan take off

This part of the documentation refers to the product offering EasyPlan.

With the EasyPlan, your TMOR system is already configured in the way, that

  • The 1-wire sensor is connected to the base station
  • The TMOR software is preconfigured for the connected sensor
  • The TMOR base station has unique passwords which are provided seperately
Literally, you only need to plug it in and turn it on.

Setting up the base station

Treat the TMOR base station as a normal consumer electronic device. Make sure that the new location for your TMOR base station is dry and not too humid. The ambient temperatures should not be below 0°C and should not exceed 70°C. The spot to measure should be within sensor cable length.

Connecting the base station

Now connect network cable and and power cable. The SD card LEDs flicker as the base station boots up. Check your local DHCP server/internet router for the newly assigned IP address for TMOR. The base station name should be TMORxYYYYYYYY PI ADDRESS. In case you have a Raspberry Pi Vers 3 you can enable the wifi module ####.

Accessing the TMOR user interface

Once you know the IP addess of the TMOR base station you will open the web broswer on your PC/IPAD/smartphone and enter the following URL: http://PI ADDRESS:8080/TMOR/Index and you land on the Dashboard page.

Proceed to the Bricks view by clicking on the left menu bar entry, or by entering the following URL: http://PI ADDRESS:8080/TMOR/Bricks. The connected 1-wire sensor should be listed as BASESTATION_XXXXXXXXXXX. Here the last reading value and timestamp is visible.

Accessing the TMOR console

There comes a time where you further want to configure and adapt TMOR to your needs. This requires access to the Raspberry pi operating system. Access the TMOR base station via a remote console program such as putty. As connection type select SSH to port 22. The IP address is the same as for accessing the TMOR user interface.
