The OneVue Wired Device Configurator (OWDC) Android™ app provides the experience of adding a new Primex network device to OneVue on a mobile platform. The OWDC app is an alternative to Device Preconfiguration. Compatible devices include OneVue Sense Sensors, OneVue Sync Bridge, PoE Clocks and Timers, and the OneVue Notify Bell Controller.
Once you download the app from the Google Play™ store (it’s free!), you connect the Primex device to your Android device and the app guides you through the entire process.
OWDC app installed on your Android mobile device: download the OWDC app from the Google Play Store. Search for the OneVue Wired Device Configurator.
Android mobile device requirements: Android OS version 4.4 or later. Minimum 25% battery life remaining. Device must support USB Host or USB OTG mode. To verify USB support, check with the Android device manufacturer.
App login: 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.
OneVue Network Profile: during configuration, the Primex device 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.
OWDC cannot be used with devices that require EAP-TLS certificates for network authentication or any type of network certificate. Devices requiring this type of authentication must be configured through Device Preconfiguration, and when the devices arrive onsite the certificates are required to be uploaded to the devices using the Primex Device Configuration software. The devices will then be able to successfully authenticate to the facility's network and check-in to OneVue.
Primary device settings: each Primex device has unique primary settings. Refer to OWDC procedure for the device type you are adding to OneVue.
Connection cable (not supplied): the type of cable is dependent on the Primex device and your Android device.
The cable connects the Primex device to your Android device and provides power to the Primex device during configuration.
Cables can be purchased from Primex. Contact Primex Technical Support to verify the cable required for your application use. Part No. NTUSBADAPTER Mini-Din, USB-C, USB T-adapter. Part No. Q13797 USB to Mini cable.
Sense Sensor, Sync Bluetooth Bridge, or Notify Bell Controller
These devices have a USB Mini B (5 pin) connector interface and require either a Mini-USB to Micro USB OTG adapter cable or Mini-USB to USB C adapter cable.
PoE Clock or Timer connection cable
A PoE clock requires two cables, both an OTG Data Cable with Extra Power (either Micro USB or USB C) and a Mini-USB to USB cable. The Data Cable connects to your Android device and the Mini-USB to USB cable connects the data cable to the clock. Recommended OTG Data Cable with Extra Power cables available online: Option 1: Micro USB 2.0 OTG Host Adapter with USB Power or Option 2: Micro USB Host OTG Cable with USB Power. Use of an USB wall outlet adapter is only required when the wired connection does not supply enough power to power on the clock.
