    Introduction

    Sweet Home for Vantage allows you to manage, control, and monitor Vantage Infusion automation systems with iOS and Android touch devices.

    This software is intended for the Vantage installer. All graphics and programming interface must be implemented within the Infusion Design Center.

    The interface works both locally via Wi-Fi network, or remotely using the 3G/4G
    network or Wi-Fi.

    Once downloaded - which may be done for free via the Apple or Google store - the
    application can be tested by enabling the Demo Mode function. In Demo Mode
    both the graphics and the page navigation functionality are already activated
    and displayed without overlaps.
    The Communication function requires authorization via a license code which must be purchased through the website www.sweethomeforvantage.com and activated as explained in the following chapter.

    To turn your devices into a touch screen it is necessary to complete the following simple steps:

    • Register on www.sweethomeforvantage.com
    • Get a license for the device on the website.
    • Download the application for free from the App store or the Play Store
    • Activate the communication ticket on the device (or try it in demo mode).
    • Load the graphic interface previously exported by Infusion Design Center
    • Configure local and remote connection parameters on the device.
    • Any iOS Device with iOS 10.0 or above.
    • Any Android Device with Android 5.0 or above.
    • Apple TV with tvOS 13.2 or above

    1. Draw your graphics

    To begin with, add a Generic TPT touch screen and try drawing a new graphics.
    However if you already have an existing touch screen, you can convert it into TPT touch and follow the same tips described in the next steps as if you have created graphics from scratch.

    2. Export Graphics

    Export your graphic file locally

    When you procured some valid graphics, to proceed choose Design -> Export in Touchscreen Designer.
    Click on <Export Files...> and select a local directory to export all files needed.
    Now, in the destination folder you will find a configuration file named LCDconfig.xml and all the others graphics resources.

    3. Upload Graphics

    Prepare and Upload Graphics to your device

    In the local directory in which you export the graphics, compress all the file in Zip format and name the archive how you like.
    You can adopt 3 solution to load zip file on devices:

    Connect your iOS device to a PC/Mac, then in iTunes, go to File Sharing of the Device. Choose Sweet Home App and copy zip file to destination as shown in the second figure. 

    As shown in the second figure, in the system configuration you can click on "select graphics" button. It allows you to browsing through native resources of your device.

    The first step is opening the cloud system configuration for a system from licences page on this site. There, you are able to upload configuration and/or graphics zip file. For downloading these resources on the app, you can go on system configuration view.

    4. Activate the Licence
