The multi-user security plugin for Axial Server is designed to allow you to control which devices and scenes are controllable from each of the mobile phones connecting to your system.

Once setup, each of your smart devices is able to control a specific set of devices and scenes. This tutorial will guide you through the setup process.


  • First of all, determine where you installed your copy of Axial Server. By default this is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Moonlit Software, LLC\InControl HA. Make a note of this location as you'll need it in the following step.
  • Inside Axial Server, go offline and then exit the program. Then run the Multi-User Setup program that you downloaded after purchasing the plugin. When you are prompted to enter a path, type in what you made of a note of in the prior step. This should point to your Axial Server installation.

To confirm the install was a success, start Axial Server and go to Plugins/Multi-User Security/Setup Multi-UserSecurity. You should have a screen that looks like this:

Using Multi-User Security

Be sure to check the box that says "Enable Advanced Security" to turn on the plugin.

At this point, you'll be creating a new password for each set of scenes and devices you wish to secure. For example, if you wish to allow a house guest to have control of a light and outlet in the guest bedroom, you'd create a new password for that house guest and then input the password in the Axial Mobile app running on the smart phone.

When you add a new password, the following options are available:

  • Password Name: This is for your reference only and doesn't impact the functionality of multi-user security.
  • Password: This is the password that will need to be entered into the settings on the mobile device in the "Server Password" field.
  • Check View All Devices to allow this password to view all devices in your Axial Server setup.
  • Check Control All Devices if you wish this password to be able to control devices such as turning them on and off.
  • Check View All Scenes to allow this password access to view and activate all scenes in the system.

To setup a password to only be able to control a certain set of devices or scenes, add them to the list as appropriate. The following example is used to allow kids access to a handful of devices and a single scene.
