  Full screen web pages and HTML frames

WebIO web pages as HTML frames 

The HTC 6800 smartphone to the right is running Windows Pocket PC 6.1 and uses the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. This version of IE (with Pocket PC 6.1) has the options to view web pages as "one column" view (usefull for smaller displays) or "fit to screen" which zooms out on the web page so you see the full page or "Desktop" view which adds scroll bars to navigate larger web pages.

The first picture to the right shows the HTC 6800 using IE set to "fit to screen" mode displaying a full WebIO web page containing three frames.
The second picture to the right shows a selected WebIO web page frame.
To select a web page frame on this phone with a touch screen, you hold the stylus on the frame of choice to bring up browser options and select the "go to frame" option from the list.
  WebIO cell phone connectivity

WebIO cell phone communication architicture 

When you use WebIO with a 3G(WCDMA or GSM) Smartphone, the phone is first connected to a wireless carrier network with Internet access, where a route is found to the WebIO using an assigned domain name or by just IP address. The phone's connection is then passed through your Internet Broadband Modem (cable modem or DSL) and connected to your Router where you need to forward a port to the local IP address of your WebIO server.

When sending WebIO a command to turn a light on, WebIO sends your message by device address over the AC powerline to the lamps powerline control module, which then turns the lamp on.
