Device Discovery

Device discovery

Regardless of device protocol, AggreGate always does its best to minimize the amount of manual work required for connecting and configuring new devices.

Most communication protocols support some discovery mechanisms which AggreGate tries to hook into letting you connect most devices in "plug-and-play" style.

Discovery and Provisioning Methods

IP network scanning (host-by-host polling)
Broadcast-based discovery of network-enabled hardware controllers in a local network segment
Automatic configuration of discovered controllers for communicating with AggreGate
Automatic creation of server-side device accounts
Scheduled auto-discovery and auto-connection
Discovery of available device settings, operations and events
Remote configuration of controllers which don't have server-side accounts
