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 I'll try it on my own: you are guided through the configuration process for each device as defined in the following steps.
If you selected Have a Primex Project Manager contact me: provide the information to schedule a Preconfiguration Consult and select Submit.
From the Existing Networks, review the networks listed and select one of the options.
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 Configuring Devices 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 at your facility.
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, your staff is required to manually configure the device's network settings when it arrives at your facility.
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).
Location: by default, a device is not assigned to a Location. If your account structure uses Locations to control user access, assign a device to a Location to ensure users have access to the devices they are responsible for.
Commonly identifies the device's install location. Setting allows up to a maximum of 50 characters.
It's recommended to develop a standard naming convention to allow you to easily locate a device if maintenance should be required.

When the preconfiguration steps are complete, the preconfiguration summary page is displayed.
From the list, you can change a device setting by selecting Change.
Once you are ready to process the order with the settings provided, select Confirm Shipment.
The order's devices are configured by Primex.
Your OneVue account ID and the provided settings are configured into each device.
Devices are added to your OneVue account. Devices are only listed in OneVue and are not active. A device is activated when it connects to your facility's network and checks-in to OneVue.
If a network profile was assigned during preconfiguration: when a bridge is powered on at your facility, it automatically connects to its assigned network and checks-in to OneVue.
If a network was not assigned or if the network settings were entered incorrectly: a bridge's network settings are required to be updated onsite with the OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) app or the Primex Device Configuration software.
Devices and their packaging are labeled with the settings provided during preconfiguration.
