This topic provides the instructions to configure a Notify InfoBoard that will be managed and monitored from OneVue. During configuration, the InfoBoard is added to your OneVue account. Be sure to complete the steps in the order as they appear below.
An InfoBoard must be configured before it's installed at its permanent location.
During a new system install, Primex recommends configuring all InfoBoards at a central location with Wi-Fi or mobile connectivity on your mobile device. Once configured, they can be installed at their permanent location.
Transmitter: each OneVue Sync Transmitter is configured, installed, and operating.
Mobile device: has either Wi-Fi or mobile connectivity enabled during configuration.
App log in access: your OneVue user profile assigned to the Account Admin or Network Admin role.
The app guides you through the configuration process.
Apply power to the InfoBoard and connect it to an Ethernet network.
From your mobile device, open the OneVue Device Configurator (ODC) app .
Select Connect to OneVue.
Enter your OneVue username > select Next > enter your password > select Log In.
Select the OneVue account the InfoBoard is to be added to.
If your user login is associated with more than one OneVue account, the account selection option is displayed.
Set InfoBoard into Bluetooth discoverable mode: press and release its Bluetooth pairing button.
Button is located in its backside connection panel. It's best to use a paper clip or similar object to press and release the button.
