Learn how to add a new Bridge to OneVue with the OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) app. This procedure can also be followed to update a Bridge's network settings and the other settings available within app.
The following details what's required to configure a Bridge with the OWDC app.
OWDC log in requirement
To log into the app, your OneVue user account must be assigned to the Account Admin Role. 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.
During configuration, a Bridge is assigned to an existing 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.
New Clock Time Zone
Time zone that Sync Bluetooth Clocks are set to the first time they connect to the Sync Bluetooth mesh network. When set to Default, clocks are set to the account profile time zone.

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.
