DaliSuites  DaliPhone2
DaliPhone2 is a remote access version of DaliPhone, which is based on the P2P (Peer-to-Peer) technology.  No re-configuration of the Wi-Fi router for port-forwarding and DDNS (Dynamic DNS) are required.  DaliPhone2 is a downloadable application to be installed on the Android phone and Apple iPhone, and it can be purchased online by clicking the Play Store or App Store.

When the user is away from home and wants to control the luminaires or devices inside the house, DaliPhone2 can access DaliHub by using 4G LTE/3G/GSM mobile data network or public Wi-Fi hotspot.  The entered account name and password are sent to the P2P server for authentication.  If the credentials (account name and password) are verified, the user can then send command to DaliHub for controling the luminaires and devices.

The account information can be obtained from accessing DaliConfig, which is a universally unique identifier came with DaliHub and cannot be changed. The password can also be viewed at DaliConfig, and it can be changed when necessary. For details, please refer to the user manual of DaliConfig.

The graphical interface of DaliPhone2 is very similar to DaliPhone.  The standard model is 5-room, and the default room names are Room 1, Room 2, Room 3, Room 4 and Room 5.  The user can change the room name to suit his/her preference for easy recognition.  Other room models are available upon request.

Not relied on Port-forwarding and Dynamic DNS
When DaliPhone2 communicates with DaliHub, the data transmission does not rely on the configuration of port-forwarding and DDNS (Dynamic DNS) to go through the the firewall of Wi-Fi router.  So the user can skip the tedious re-configuration process of the home Wi-Fi router, before getting the remote access of DaliHub.  Simple explanations about port-forwarding and DDNS are listed below for reference,

  Port-forwarding - Also known as port mapping.  It  is an application of network address translation (NAT) that redirects a communication request from one address and port number combination to another while the packets are traversing a network gateway, such as a router or firewall.
  Dynamic DNS - a service to keep a domain name pointing to the same computer or server connected to the internet despite the fact that the address (IP address) of the computer keeps changing.
