5. Manage outlets

Assuming the server is running and the app is fully configured.
Now you want to add some outlets to the system.

Each outlet can be identified with a 5-digit systemcode and a 5-digit unitcode, composing of 0's and 1's.

  • The systemcode can be every binary combination: 00000, 00001, 00010, 00011 and so on until 11110, 11111. There are 2^5 = 32 possibilities for a systemcode.
  • The unitcode must contain one 1 and four 0. There are five possibilities:
    10000, 01000, 00100, 00010 and 00001.
    These codes are equivalent to A, B, C, D, (E) on the remote and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in RC Plugs.

Think of the systemcode as a group where you can define up to five outlets by setting the unitcode.
There are up to 32 different systemcodes with 5 unitcodes each, so we have a total of 32*5 = 160 outlets that can be identified!

But how to set the codes? This is simple - just set it at the backside of the outlet!

This outlet has set 10001|00100.
So the configuration is:
  • Systemcode: 10001
  • Unitcode: 00100 (outlet C on the remote control, number3 in RC Plugs)

All you have to do now is to create the same systemcode and plug in RC Plugs.
You can do this by app (settings manage) or web-interface (manage).
Once this step is done, you are able to switch your outlets via RC Plugs!
