This solution will explain what a cluster is, and how you can use multiple AutoPilots with a single AutoPilot server. It forms part of a broader guide on managing and using AutoPilot which can be found here 

What is a cluster

Clustering helps you to manage one or more AutoPilots within one main AutoPilot as the primary. The connection is established by TCP/IP with each connected AutoPilot is called a Cluster.

You would create a single cluster from a secondary or more AutoPilot to a single AutoPilot. This will allow you to control the secondary+ AutoPilot devices from a single AutoPilot server. 

Create a cluster

These steps will lead you through setting up your cluster of AutoPilots to connect to a single primary AutoPilot.


  1. Go to Menu > Clustering
  2. Add a new Cluster
    1. Add Name
    2. Add URL to target AutoPilot 
      1. Local IP Address - allows it to be accessible in the same network.
        1. Use the Local IP address of the secondary AutoPilot

      2. Remote address - URL that will be called during the aeotec id forwarding. 
        1. Use the Local IP address of the secondary AutoPilot while using Aeotec Apart, for example, the link at the top of the below image (boxed in red), this would be inputted into this field from your own AutoPilot login.

    3. Add login
      • Should be a valid login of your secondary AutoPilot
    4. Add password
      • Needs to be a valid password of the secondary AutoPilot login user.
    5. Activate the connection
    6. Press Save

Edit a cluster

You will be able to edit your cluster at any time to update its name, URL, login, password, or enable/disable the active cluster connections. 

Edit a Cluster (assuming your credentials are correct and AutoPilot is available)

  • A list of devices is shown below
  • Assign device to favorite space
  • Add it to oversight
