anybody can help ?
Well, I am not very knowledgeable on this topic, but I think a solution within OpenRemote is not trivial. As far as I can see Home Easy is a rather closed world. It does not seem to use one of the more open communication protocols. Openremote supported protocols can be found here: http://www.openremote.org/display/docs/Supported+Protocols+in+OpenRemote+2.0+Controller.
Home Easy does seem to have a SMS textservice interface that could be used to control your devices remotely. You could look into that.
The Openremote solution is working with 3 mains components:
Unfortunatly, there is no direct link between any panels and controlled devices. the panels have to commnunicate with the controller and the controller will manage the communication to your controlled devices.
That means that the controller has to be on to control your devices. But it's not mantatory to have a PC powered on to run the controller.
You can have it running on any kind of server, NAS, plug computer, ... that support a java server like Tomcat, or any other.

openremote is good for complicated cases, for simple solution, like reboot, check network status, check logs,etc you just need easyboot to bind a gmail account. Easyboot server is free.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.higsoft.easyboot&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5oaWdzb2Z0LmVhc3lib290Il0.
