tenHsEcm12xx Installation

First install tenEcmServer.  The download file and installation instructions are located here.

Start tenEcmServer and make sure that it is receiveing records from the ECM(s) and broadcasting packets.

Then download and run the installation program available below.  It must be run on your HomeSeer computer with HomeSeer NOT running.  After installing the plugin, restart HomeSeer, and then enable the plugin if you did not do so during the installation.  Use the plugin configuration page to make sure that the UDP port is set to the same as set for tenEcmServer.  The default is 3741.

Please provide ongoing comments using the tenWare Support link to the left.



  If upgrading from a release prior to 5.19, all tenHsEcm12xx Devices will be deleted and recreated (along with additional Devices).
