hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to set up the web server for your tuxedo keypad for your honeywell vista security system so what i mean by this is uh if you're on the same um network same wi-fi network as the tuxedo then you can actually um access the tuxedos interface from a web browser and control your vista system that way um which may be convenient maybe a convenient feature there also is a port forwarding feature that you can use to control it remotely when you're not on site but we don't support that so we're not going to get into that today but i am talking about setting up the web server so that way you can use a web browser to control your tuxedo you're going to basically get the old style tuxedo interface i'll show you that once we get to it but the first thing we're going to have to do we're going to have to set it up on the tuxedo because otherwise if we go to do this without doing the configurations on the tuxedo we'll get an error message so we're going to set up a username and a password that we can use to log in so uh we're starting at the main screen of the tuxedo here and what we're going to do we're going to click the settings icon at the bottom here and then i do want to show you system wi-fi you do have to make sure you're on a wi-fi network so make sure you go ahead and do that we're already connected to alarm grid so we're fine on that but what we're going to do once we're back at the screen we're going to choose account and then this is where we can create a username and password so i'll do a username i'll do michael for the username and this is just um on a private server so it's not like you have to make like some name that nobody's used before it can be anything really um just something that you can use to log in so i'll do michael and um then we'll just do um we'll do password one for the test um and actually i need a capital letter so i i will do a capital p and then password and then we'll do the number one so password one that's what we'll use and i'll press the check mark and then um what we're going to do we're just going to press the save button down here in the bottom right and then you see we get confirmed settings saved so now i'm going to go into system info and i'm going to take a note of the ip address on there because we're going to use that when we access it through the web browser so so now what i'm going to do now that i have the ip address and i've created the account the username and password i'm actually going to go on a tablet and i'm going to show you what it looks like when we log into it okay as you can see we're connected to the alarm grid network i just wanted to point that out um so we're going to go home here we're going to open up google chrome and now we're going to enter in the ip address that was on the tuxedo i do have to pull it back up here it went away from me um but okay so we're going to enter in and remember we're on the same network as the tuxedo that's how this is working so we're going to do 192 and then point one six eight point one point one one nine then we're going to go to go and you're gonna get um your connection is not private message that's very normal just choose advanced and then you can proceed to it that's completely normal you're pretty much always going to get that there's no way around it you're going to get that and now you see we're at this login screen for the honeywell home tuxedo so i'm going to enter in my username which was michael and then we're going to enter in the password which was password1 repeat with a capital p and then we're doing password and one and we're going to log in and you see we get on the same screen as what you would get on an old school tuxedo an old honeywell tuxedo touch so now i can control the system the same way i have the security functions if i wanted to um arm a partition or arm the system i can go ahead and do that um now um yeah i can control automation devices from here um one thing i do want to mention you can't um exclude or include new automation devices in the tuxedo web interface which that's actually gonna be a different video that we're gonna do in a little bit but um no you can't you can't add or exclude devices using this method but you can pretty much control your system however you want like just as if you were using the tuxedo there's also a different theme you can use that is better for mobile they have that as well but you see the regular theme that i went back to just now it's pretty much just like an old school tuxedo but that's how you can control your system from this web server so that's how you access it so that is how you set up the web server for a honeywell tuxedo keypad if you have any
