Frequently asked questions
The server is required for constant connection with equipment, storing data coming from the equipment in the database and executing scenes 24/7. The server is required in the majority of automation projects as a lot of system functions have to work unaffected by the fact that visialization on smart phones or tablets is launched or not.
The server for Windows is included in the iRidium setup package. After installing and launching the server set it up in iRidium Studio. The server is not obligatory for use but it provides additional capabilities for equipment control.
