Determine the Port Number on the Konnected Alarm Panel (ESP8266)

The Konnected Alarm Panel (based on the ESP8266 WiFi chip) uses a randomized HTTP port number for its internal device status page and HTTP API interface. Normally, the device is discovered automatically and the port number is revealed to the Konnected app or your smart home platform.

In some cases, you may need to determine the port number to manually add the device by IP address or manually access the device's status page. There are several ways to do this:

Connect the Device by USB

The most direct way to determine the port number is to connect the device to your computer using a USB cable. Follow either of the below guides to connect the device to your computer and view the console output:

Once the device is connected, press the reboot button once to start the boot output. Look for the line "Starting server http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xx:xxxxx" The part after the last colon is the port number.

Do a Port Scan

Use a port scanning tool such as nmap to scan for open ports on the device. For this, the device should already be connected to your WiFi network and you should know the IP address from your router's status page or app.

nmap -p 8000-24777

The above command will scan ports 8000 thru 24777 on the given IP address. After a few minutes, one open port should be found, which is the device's communication port.
