When an order is placed, you have an option to configure the order's devices through the online Device Preconfiguration procedure. Your OneVue account ID and the settings provided are configured by Primex before they are shipped - it's an easy online process that allows devices to be ready for use when they arrive at your facility.
Device Preconfiguration is completed online from your OneVue account. The Dashboard To Do list identifies an order requiring preconfiguration.
If you should close your web browser or log out during this procedure, all information provided is saved and you can return to the procedure from your To Do list.
Go to the Dashboard.
From the To Do list, select the order to be configured.
From Begin Device Preconfiguration, you can either select to complete the device preconfiguration on your own or have a Primex Project Manager contact you to assist you.
If you selected have a Primex Project Manager contact me: Provide the information to schedule a Preconfiguration Consult and select Submit.
If you selected I'll try it on my own: You are guided through the configuration process for each device as defined in the following steps.
From the Existing Networks, review the networks listed.
If the devices can be assigned to a network listed: Select I'll use one of these.
If you will not be assigning a network to a device: Select I'll use one of these and when assigning a network to the device select No Network.
If there are no networks listed or if the devices cannot use a network listed: Select I want to create a new network. Enter the network settings from the Create A New Network screen. Select Show Advanced Options to view all options and settings.
From the Preconfiguration screen, assign a network and enter the settings for each device. Each setting is optional and can be skipped.
Assign a network to the device. Assigning a network allows the device to connect to your facility's network as soon as power is applied. You can either select an existing Network Profile, create a new Network Profile, or select No Network if a network cannot be assigned or created at this time.
New Network: If you are creating a new network, select Show Advanced Options to view all of the network profile settings.
No Network: If a network is not assigned, manually configure the device onsite.
IPv4 address and alternate network: You may choose to provide the advanced network device settings. To view the advanced settings, select Show Advanced Options. Settings include the Network IPv4 address, and Alternate Network (backup network).
Bell Controller Zone (Relay 1 & Relay 2) & Label
What is a Zone? A Bell Controller has two relays that are wired to an existing PA or school bell system to activate school bells. From OneVue, the relays are assigned to a zone that contains the bell schedules.
Enter the name of the each zone, which commonly represents the school. If only one relay will be used, you can skip relay 2. After preconfiguration, you will create the zone's bell schedules from OneVue.
Once you have completed (or optionally skipped) the steps for all devices, the summary page is displayed. From the list, you can also change a setting by selecting Change.
If any settings are skipped and Confirm Shipment is selected, the device(s) are shipped from Primex. Failure to assign a network to a device requires the device to be manually configured onsite.
Once you are ready to process the order with settings provided, select Confirm Shipment.
The order's devices are preconfigured by Primex.
Your OneVue account ID and the provided settings are configured into each device.
Devices and their packaging are labeled with the settings provided during preconfiguration.
Devices are added to your OneVue account. The devices are only listed in your account and are not active. A device does not become active until it establishes a connection to your network and check-in to your OneVue account.
Device is assigned to the account Business Unit.
If a network profile was assigned, once power is applied to the device it attempts to connect to the network check-in to OneVue.
If a network was not assigned or if the network settings were entered incorrectly, it will be required to be configured onsite.
