As already mentioned in our previous post introduction to EIB/KNX, the physical connectivity to the bus can be done in different ways, by means of a serial port, a USB port or else via IP network.
EIBD is a software development that presents the users with a unified interface to access the bus. EIBD implements internally the several KNX protocols used in the different physical media used to access the bus. This is a very useful component in the development of client applications to access and control the home automation network.
In this post we will explain how to install and use this software in a Linux Debian computer.
