Learn how to update a Bluetooth Bridge's assigned network with the OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) app. Commonly this procedure is performed when a Bridge cannot connect to its current assigned network and requires a network update (migrate to a new network).
The following details what's required to configure a Bridge with the OWDC app.
OWDC app installed on your Android mobile device
Download the OWDC app or from the Google Play Store search for OneVue Wired Device Configurator.
Android mobile device requirements
Android OS version 4.4 or later. Minimum 25% battery life remaining.
Supports USB Host or USB OTG mode. To verify USB support, check with the Android device manufacturer.
App log in
Your OneVue user profile must be assigned to the Account Admin role. You will log in to the app with your OneVue user name (email address) and password.
Connection cable (not supplied)
The cable connects the Primex device to your Android device and also provides the power source to the Primex device during configuration.
OneVue Network Profile
From the OWDC app, you cannot create a new Network Profile. Before you begin, from OneVue verify a Network Profile exists or create a new Network Profile. From OneVue, go to Devices > Networks. To create a new network, from the bottom section select +New.
For a Non-DHCP network, during configuration you are required to provide the device's static IP address.
From your Android device, open the OWDC app.
Enter your OneVue username > select Next > enter your password > select Log In.
Remove AC power from the Bridge. During the next step, it receives power from its connection to your Android device. If battery power is enabled, leave this on.
Set Bridge into configuration mode > connect Bridge to your Android device using a USB OTG or a USB C cable (dependent on your device).
App displays "Add Device" and "Con" displayed on the Bridge LCD screen, indicating it's in configuration mode.
Update its assigned Network.
Network Type: select the type of network the Bridge will connect to.
Select Network: select a network (displays the network profiles available in OneVue).
Select Next to continue.
The app configures Bridge and displays its configuration status.
Do not remove the connection between the Bridge and your Android device until prompted.
When the Disconnect Device message appears > remove the USB connection between the Bridge and your Android device > and re-apply AC power to the Bridge.
Once disconnected, the app verifies the Bridge successfully checked-in to OneVue. If after 15 minutes it does not check-in, the app displays a status message.
If applicable, it may also take time to download the latest firmware (Bridge LCD displays UP).
You can now configure additional devices or close the app when you’re done.
