Device Firmware Updates
Update the firmware for a device or group of devices. For the latest available firmware and downloads, access the customer portal.
Configure an ANetD Device as a SIP Device
Configure an ANetD device to act as a SIP device that can interact with a SIP server.
Priority Option Settings
Configure Priority Option Settings, otherwise called the Low Priority Ignore feature, which can help limit text display and mute audio on devices in a desired area.
Paging Message Interrupt
Set up a continuous scrolling message to pause for the duration of an audio page, and then automatically resume.
Activate the flashing indicator lights on an ANetD IP display device via associated Priorities, SIP calls, or ClockWise Campus software functionality.
Hosting Configuration Files with ClockWise
Set up an aggregate configuration file for all devices using ClockWise.
Pixel Graphics (Pixmaps)
Take advantage of still and animated pixel graphics (pixmaps) in ClockWise for IP display devices.
Sound Files for Alerts
Download sound libraries or create your own sound files for alerts in ClockWise and third-party software (if supported).
Migrate ClockWise Settings
Migrate settings from one computer or virtual machine (VM) to another.
General Purpose Output Interface
Use the GPIO of AND devices to connect and control an external device, such as a relay-controlled strobe.
Push Button Input
Use the GPIO of AND devices to connect an external push button to initiate calls and activate alerts.
Make line-in audio connections (supported by most AND devices), which enables local amplification of the line-in audio on the device’s speaker(s), as well as the ability to broadcast the line-in audio over a network via multicast.
Make line-out audio connections (supported by most AND devices), which enables external amplification, recording, etc.
Trigger ClockWise Alerts with InformaCast
Configure InformaCast to trigger an alert or notification already created in ClockWise Campus, enabling easy access to a wider range of customization for alert characteristics.
Using Message Priorities with InformaCast
Use AND message priority actions with Singlewire InformaCast software.
Configuring Device for InformaCast Advanced M2M
Configure an AND device to use InformaCast Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology, which enables an AND device triggered by an event like a contact closure input to transmit a message to InformaCast for triggering alerts.
Inline Text Message Markup
Define text fonts, colors, shadows, and flashing, as well as LED flasher behavior for AND display devices within InformaCast and other compatible third-party software.
Store text messages and pixel graphics directly on a device, making easy to trigger for immediate display from a third-party application or as initiated by a general purpose input signal.
OnBoard Sound Playback
Store audio files of sounds and pre-recorded messages directly on a device, making easy to trigger from a SIP call or a third-party application or as initiated by a general purpose input signal.
We recommend the use of configuration files to provision devices. Configuration files establish the settings for all ANetD IP devices on a network, including settings common to all the devices, as well as specific settings unique to specific devices. Some of the settings include:
- NTP Config – sets how the device will synchronize time to the network
- Display – sets colors, brightness, font, and other display parameters for the date, clock, and other messaging
- SIP Config – sets parameters associated with using the devices as SIP endpoints
- Microphone – sets parameters for the built-in mic
- GPIO – sets parameters for how the device interacts with general purpose inputs and outputs
- LineIn – sets the parameters of a signal coming into the line-in connection
- Flashers – sets the default behavior of the three flashing indicator lights on the front of the device
- Priorities – sets how flashers and GPIO behave for different priority messages
- Other settings include firmware location, server registration parameters, temperature checks, and more…
