Velux KLF 200 io-homecontrol gateway over WiFi

Hi,

I’m looking into the Velux KLF 200 as a gateway to control io-homecontrol devices with HA.

All tutorials and docs I’ve been able to find mention connecting to the API exposed by the device via Ethernet. The WiFi is only mentioned for initial setup.

Can the KLF 200 connect to my WiFi access point so that I can access the API via WiFi, or do I actually need to connect it via Ethernet?

Hello,

I use the KLF 200 and you’re right, the Wi-Fi is only for the initial setup.
WiFi is disabled 5 minutes after power on and the KLF 200 doesn’t have an option to connect to a WiFI network, it only works in AP mode.
