Technical Resources

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.

SIP Device in Cisco Unified CM

Add an ANetD device as a SIP Device in Cisco Call Manager.

Sound Masking

Use the built-in sound masking capabilities on an ANetD device.

External Speaker Interface

Connect a second speaker to an ANetD device.

Configuration File Validation

Restrict Access to Device Web Interface via SNMP

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.

Attaching Ferrite Core

Attach the ferrite core for a device.

Paging Message Interrupt

Set up a continuous scrolling message to pause for the duration of an audio page, and then automatically resume.

Activating Flashers

Activate the flashing indicator lights on an ANetD IP display device via associated Priorities, SIP calls, or ClockWise Campus software functionality.

Analog Clock Synchronization

Synchronize time on analog clocks using a ZONEC2 Zone Controller as the Master Clock.

LLDP-MED Configuration with Cisco Switch

Integrate ANetD devices on a voice VLAN using LLDP-MED.


Interface an ANetD device with a Mobotix Q25M camera.


Configure and control communication between ANetD devices and Polycom phones.

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.

Embeddable Control Commands

ClockWise supports several control commands that you can embed in the scrolling text strings used in alerts.

Sound Files for Alerts

Download sound libraries or create your own sound files for alerts in ClockWise and third-party software (if supported).

Bell Scheduling with ClockWise

Create and manage a bell schedule with ClockWise.

ClockWise WCF Trigger

Setup a WCF trigger within ClockWise.

SIP Integration

Integrate IP devices in a SIP environment using ClockWise.

Migrate ClockWise Settings

Migrate settings from one computer or virtual machine (VM) to another.

Zeroconf with ClockWise (Running an Endpoint Standalone with a PC)

Use ClockWise in cases where you do not have access to the network (mainly for standalone applications and demos).

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.

Using GPIO with ClockWise

Configure GPIO-related events in ClockWise (also known as GPIO Callback).

Line-In Audio

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.

Line-Out Audio

Make line-out audio connections (supported by most AND devices), which enables external amplification, recording, etc.

Pigtail Cable Assembly

Build the 2-wire cable that establish a physical connection between an AND device and another device.

Temperature Sensors

Configure the temperature sensors equipped on an AND device.

GE IR Remote Setup

Configure an IR remote to make SIP calls and change volume on a live call.

Extron Paging Sensor

Setup an Extron Paging Sensor with AND IP devices.

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.

OnBoard Messages

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…
