The SMART CONNECT KNX Remote Access is simply connected to the home network. It then connects to the portal server (www.securedeviceaccess.net) automatically through your existing Internet connection. Communication between the Remote Access and the portal server is encrypted and secured with digital certificates.
With a connection to the home network, you can now access almost all of your network devices using the Internet. Depending on the network protocols supported by the respective device, access occurs directly through the SDA portal server or through the SDA client software available for windows platforms. As the SMART CONNECT KNX Remote Access version 6.1 and higher also works as a VPN server, you can now also easily perform many maintenance tasks remotely, which you could not realise with the Remote Access previously. You can use the KNX connection to connect the Remote Access with the KNX installation in your home. This enables you, or your electrical installer, to access your KNX devices from anywhere, e.g. with the ETS.
Don't worry, though. The portal server is located in Germany and is subject to the German Data Protection Law.
With the latest update V6.1 the SMART CONNECT KNX Remote Access gets an extensive VPN feature. The Remote Access serves as a VPN server. This allows you to work in the remote network without needing to make complicated router settings. Also, you can maintain not only KNX systems remotely, but any other systems.
The SMART CONNECT KNX Remote Access version 6.1 and higher also supports KNX Secure.
You can update the gateway free of charge using the integrated function on the device web page.
If your current firmware is lower than version 4.0, you can find here important information about updating to firmware version 6.
