Important – 5 Golden Rules – Network Processor Unit (NPU)

If you don’t read anything else…
If you don’t generally read manuals then we ask that you just read these 5 golden

  1. In the configuration editor: scenes are defined in columns, inputs are shown in
    rows. The intersection between the two is where the input triggers the output.
  2. Channels should always be named as follows: : .
    The colon : symbol must be included
  3. The configuration-editor username is always “configuration”. The
    password is whatever you set it to be.
  4. An I/O module which has some channels set as an input, and some set as an
    output will appear twice: once in the outputs section, and once in the inputs
  5. Your NPU must have it’s own unique IP address, and be on the same sub-net
    as the computer which you are using to browse its’ web-pages.

IP / LAN Settings

All aspects of the eDIN networking can be configured through the web interface.

The IP address of the NPU must be unique on the LAN.
If you want to access the NPU from outside your LAN, perhaps from another
computer on the Internet, then you’ll need to know the site’s public IP address, and
you’ll need to set up Port Forwarding on your router.

You can select which ports are used for each of the network services offered by the
eDIN NPU. Each service has a default port, which you do not have to change if you
do not need to:

BY DEFAULT, OUR DRIVER USES PORT 26 in the ‘Enable gateway control’ section (see image below), this can be changed if required

The Embeded WebServer
eDIN is configured using a web browser. No eDIN-specific software or tools are

To access the embedded web server, contained within the eDIN Network Processor
Unit, connect the NPU and your computer to a LAN (Local Area Network).

Alternatively the IP address can be set manually. This is only recommended for
networks that do not have a DHCP server, as otherwise the DHCP server may allocate
the IP address that has already been manually set for the eDIN module to another
device. That would then mean that there are two devices with the same IP address on
the same network, which will cause problems.

Once you know the IP address of the eDIN NPU, type it into the URL bar of your
web browser.

eDIN is compatible with many web browsers that run Javascript, JQuery and AJAX, these include:
Microsoft Internet Explorer v7 onwards
Mozilla Firefox v3 onwards
Opera v9 onwards
Safari v4 onwards
Google Chrome v2 onwards

Network port usage

ServicePort / ProtocolDetail
Gateway Control26 (TCP)Mode Lighting Crestron Home Driver – MUST use port 26 by default (can be changed if required)
Remote Control22 (TCP)Control of scenes via “telnet” using the standard commands:
SCENEnnnnGO (where nnnn is the scene number)
Discovery Service19182 (UDP)Enables a PC to automatically discover the eDIN NPU on the
Diagnostic Consol23Used for system analysis
File Server21For uploading and downloading the configuration, scripts, webserver pages and style-sheets etc.
Web Server80The port used to display the control and configuration web
NTPThe clock can be set automatically by connecting to an internetbased time server.
Your site’s network administrator will need to ensure that the
port specified has permission to connect to the NTP server
specified. The Refresh Delay is the number of seconds between
each synchronisation.

Network Capacity: Notes on Simultaneous TCP Connections
The eDIN NPU supports 8 simultaneous open TCP software connections.
Typically a web-browser connection will use up to four of the simultaneous open
connections to achieve faster page-loading. However the connection times will be
brief, so connections will be freed automatically when they are not in use. Therefore
in practice you can have more than two users using the web-browser at one time.
A device that is remote controlling the eDIN system, for example an AV system
processor (e.g. a Crestron unit), will use one connection at a time.
Therefore in a typical set-up you can have one web browser and four remote-control
devices simultaneously maintaining open connections to the eDIN NPU.

Setting Areas and Scenes

The Configuration menu in the Web interface will take you to the page where you can set the Areas and Scenes.

Configuring eDIN
The eDIN processor may be configured in the following areas, in the following order:
1. Select modules, and set up hardware
2. Create and edit scenes (output actions)
3. Create and edit triggers (input actions)
4. Create users, and assign access privileges
5. Configure network settings and security

Setting Up Modules, Scenes and Triggers
The configuration screen is used to setup the hardware modules and what they do.
There is a quick setup feature that can do much of the work for you automatically.
From the front screen select Configuration to access a page which shows a
spreadsheet-type view, with the modules in a column on the left, and scenes in
columns on the right.

  • Configured with a Global/All area with all devices available for main ON/OFF switching (top left)
  • All other have other areas setup with at least 5 scenes per area


How to Update the Software Inside eDIN

From the front page click on Settings and then select the Software Upgrade tab.

The current version of firmware and the editor software are shown. If you ever need
to contact Mode Technical Support, please make a note of these.
To update either part click here to access the Firmware Update page.
eDIN contains two sets of software:
1) The firmware, which handles M-Bus communications, memory
management and all of the internal features that make up eDIN.
2) The Configuration Editor, which is the embedded web application, visible
to engineers and users via the web browser.
The firmware has been written and created by Mode Lighting (UK) Ltd and can not
be modified externally. However updates are available from time to time, which
contain new or enhanced features as part of our programme of continual product
development, based on customer feedback.
The Configuration Editor, or web-application, has also been created by Mode
Lighting (UK) Ltd. Using various web-technologies such as CSS and Javascript it is
possible for a suitably skilled developer to modify the look and feel of the web pages,
including the Style-Sheets and all graphics associated with them. For more
information on this, please contact the sales department to discuss OEM options and
Web Customisation.
You can make a backup of the current firmware/webapplication using the Backup
links, or upgrade the eDIN NPU, using the Upgrade options.

2N DoorStation – User Manual

Updated for V3 Features Scroll down to see!

User manual for the 2N hardware interface module.

  • Allows you to control your 2N Doorstation directly from Crestron Home
  • Relay and IO both exposed in Crestron home
  • Supports the Crestron Actions & Events
  • Compatible with any native controls or connect to one of our tile drivers.

This hardware interface is intended to simplify the connection of your Crestron Home system to the popular 2N range of doorstation hardware.
The Switch controls and IO input can be used in tandem with the SIP call functionality to allow a complete solution. In addition we offer a range of Door and Lock UI Tiles which can be used to give a user interface to the hardware.
NB: the UI Tile and pages associated with this tile are not intended to be “customer facing”

When a 2N Intercom is used in a crestron System for Calling the user is presented with a Call page as seen below.

Supported Devices

This driver supports the API on the following devices 2N IP intercoms, 2N® SIP Audio Converter, 2N Access Unit 1.0, 2.0, M

2N Licence Requirements

Licensing on 2N has changed and for most of the functionality of our driver you now dont need any additional license.

The only additional license available is the Gold Licence and you will still need this if you want to use the motion detection parts of our driver.

Read more about this change to licensing from our Friends at Aldous Systems !

Rack Room Tile

This Hardware interface driver provides a simple UI intended for use by the integrator to verify the operation of the hardware.

The driver would generally not be client facing and would loaded to a “hidden” room in the system such as a rack room.

All hardware interface have a generic image showing two adjacent rings.

Main Page Actions

The home page tile navigates you straight to the main user interface of the driver.

This pages allows you to test the function of the controls and see monitoring of the IO via the Crestron Home App.

SIP Call Flow ( This functionality is not dependent on the driver)

We include and explanation here as the setup and usage is very common when using 2N in Crestron home.

When a guest or visitor presses the call button in a crestron home system configured for a 2N intercom the Crestron Rava Panels in the system ring with the incoming call from the intercom. This is done by setting up the dialer in the intercom

When the Crestron Home user presses the Actions button on this page a subsequent page showing all whole house quick actions is shown.

A common setup is to make a “whole house quick action” which opens the Gate using the 2N Switch Action

See more on setting up the call flow here

For the Quick Action to appear on the Call Screen you must tick the checkbox in the Settings Section of the call Action

More info here

2N Device Setup and Connection

To make use of the Switch and I/O API you dont need any additional license on the 2N.

We suggest when first connection you set authentication to None.

The Driver requires a TCP Connection Type and can support Digest , Basic or no Authentication.

If Authentication is used a user must be created and given control and monitoring on I/O Access and control privileges on Switch Access .

You need to create a user and give that user the privileges:

NB: the user is not the same as the user that you use to get into the web Interface.You have to add and enable one of the accounts on the HTTP API Page.

The function applied to Switch 1 or Switch 2 are configured in the 2N web interface.

2N Doorstation Setup Video

New Features v3


In the version 3 upgrade to our drivers we added a number of features to the standard 2N Module.

We exposed the State of the Relay in addition to the State of the “Switches”. This means if these are controlled by other systems you can keep everything in state.

We also added a couple of new monitored items to the events list.

With the Audio Licence on your 2N Intercom you can enable noise detection. Motion Detection is enabled on the internal intercom camera with the Video Licence. To read more about what licenses allow what on 2n follow this link.

In the version 3 module these events are brought into Crestron home as an Events. See a deomstration on our youtube channel here

Call Control

This new function allows basic control of the SIP calling on the 2N Intercom. When the call button is pressed on a 2N intercom setup for crestron home the intercom Dials “rava:CRESTRON” which initiates a call to all touchscreens in this default ring group.

NOTE: CRESTRON is the default ring groups for all shipping TSW‑x60 / 70 touch screens. This driver only supports this standard default CRESTRON call group.


(In addition to previously supported features)

  • Dial Panels ( Calls the Rava Dial Group CRESTRON)
  • End SIP Call Ends the call made by the Dial Panels Action ( Will not end a cll made from the call button)


(In addition to previously supported features)

  • Switch Actions ( Activated / Deactivated)
  • Relay
  • Motion Detected
