|The 2nd Generation Android apps for Tablet and Phone are now available from the Google Play store. This is an updated user interface with many functional improvements
Or just search for Cytech Comfort on the Play store
The Tablet app will no longer be supported.Please use the phone app instead
For UCM/ETH03, see instructions at http://www.comfortforums.com/forum113eou/3695.html
The UCM Firmware on the base board must be 7.048 minimum. The ETH03 firmware on the top submodule should be 2.0.6
UCM/ETH03 allows 2 simultaneous connections to Comfort via 2 separate ports.
The "Connection Timeout" in the software determines the idle time-out value in minutes (default 2 minutes). If the communications to and from Comfort is idle for this period, the app is logged out (disconnected) and there will be a message
"You Have been Logged Out". You will go back to the login screen to log in again
Setting Up your Android Phone
You must ensure that your Phone is connected to the correct WiFi network ie the same as your Comfort UCM/Eth02. If you connect to the wrong network you will not only fail to connect but will experience temporary lack of response from the App while it tries to connect to a system that is not there.
By connecting your Comfort system to a WiFi network you are potentially opening up a security vulnerability. Ensure that your Wifi network uses the highest level of security which is appropriate. Accessing Comfort from the Internet exposes the system to additional vulnerabilities.
Importing your cclx file into your app
The zones and Control Menu programmed by Comfigurator are saved as a .cclx file.
The IP Addresses for Local and Internet are also taken from the cclx file.
This information is exported into the Comfort app using a web link.
In Comfigurator, go to File >> Convert cclx file for iOS/Android app or go to http://www.cytech.biz/crl_comfort_app_convertor.php on your browser
Enter your name in the first box.
Enter an email address that you can access on your phone. This must be an email client and not a webmail using a browser
Browse to select your cclx file (programmed using Comfigurator)
Select Android as Target.
The iPhone button is meant for the iPhone app
Press UPLOAD FILE when done.
Next, open the email app on your android phone or Tablet and read the email with the title "Comfort Conversion Service".
Note that you must open the email using an email client and NOT using webmail by browser as that would not work
There is an attachment file with the extension .jrlccip eg myhome.jrlccip This is the same name as your cclx file except the extension is changed to jrlcccip
Open the attachment by tapping on it, eg "Dollhouse.jcrlccip" above
There will be a pop up box
The above screen assumes you have installed the 2nd generation Comfort Tablet and Phone apps (on the right) as well as the old versions on the left
Select the Download (arrow) icon
Next, open the Comfort app, go to Setup,
In the example above, 3 profiles have been set up in the app setup page; doll, office, home
Select one of the profiles, eg Home.
Press the IMPORT button and select the .jrlccip file that you have downloaded from the email attachment
This loads the zones and control menu into the app
If you do not do this the zones and Control Menu will be blank
