The ‘dns-me’ service allows users to connect directly to a smart-me device without knowing its IP address. If the ‘DNS address’ is enabled for a smart-me device, its local or public IP address is automatically assigned to a DNS name (e.g. smart-me_123456.dns-me.com).
smart-me uses the dns-me.com service for this purpose.
Enabling dynamic DNS
- Log into the smart-me website or the smart-me app.
- Select the desired device.
- Click on ‘Edit’.
- Activate ‘Enable DNS’ under ‘Advanced settings’.
You can select the device’s public IP address or internal IP address as the address:
The public IP address is used. This is usually your router’s IP address.
This is the smart-me device’s local IP address. It can be used to access the smart-me device, with Modbus TCP for instance, if you are in the same network. This function is not supported by all devices.
