An I/O Server is the logical representation of a field system integrated in HSYCO. A field system can be, for instance, a security system, a BUS network or even something more abstract as weather information gathered from the internet.

All I/O Servers provides for datapoints through which they receive commands and/or trigger events. That is, you can use these datapoints in your programming logic or user interface to send commands to the field system or to act upon its changes.

The first step when integrating a new system is to configure the corresponding I/O Server. This is accomplished using the I/O Servers section of the Settings application accessible through the Manager.

From here you can specify the communication parameters and its options. Details of this settings are provided in the I/O Servers application notes for each integrated system.
