GHL Connect

Q: What exactly is GHL Connect?
A: GHL Connect is a platform independent, web based and universal user interface for GHL devices. It is used in the app, the cloud service myGHL and the integrated web server. GHL Connect runs on Windows, Mac, Android and many other platforms.

Make Settings

Q: Can I make all settings via the app, the cloud or the web interface (GHL Connect)?
A: GHL Connect is under permanent development, meanwhile all important or frequently used settings and functions are already supported. The few currently not supported features are in progress and will be available soon. Also future new features will be implemented in GHL Connect immediately.

PC Software GCC

Q: What do I need the PC software GCC for?
A: Mainly for updating the device firmware.

Q: Do I need the PC software GCC for the initial setup of devices with network connection?
A: No. In the delivery state, WiFi/LAN is already active and the device is visible for GHL Connect (app and web server)  – with WiFi as access point – so settings can be made immediately via GHL Connect.

Q: Is there a Mac version of GCC?
A: No. Since the launch of our first ProfiLux 1 computers about 20 years ago, thousands of development hours have already been invested in GHL Control Center (GCC). GCC is an extremely comprehensive and constantly evolving software with tens of thousands of source code lines. Porting to Mac is economically not reasonable and because of GHL Connect not neccessarily needed. We will invest our resources in the further development of GHL Connect and in new features in the device firmware.

Q: Can I use GCC on my Mac?
A: Yes. Many of our Mac customers use a parallel Windows installation (e.g. Parallels, Bootcamp or Oracle Virtual Machine) to successfully use GCC.
