As the SmartRemote relies on connecting to myServer 6 automation controller to perform all tasks, setup myServer 6 controller first. Record the myServer 6 IP address and ensure the SmartRemote template is installed. Then continue below to setup the SmartRemote on the myServer 6 network:
Unbox your new SmartRemote.
Connect the hub to it's USB power pack.
Connect the USB power pack to a 110V AC wall plug
Dock the SmartRemote in the hub and let it charge. You will see the battery percent full on the screen.
Once the remote is charged, you can undock the SmartRemote (for ease of use) and then click the Power button on the right / upper side (long press).
You will see the Allonis Logo, followed by an "explosion" of color.
Once booted, click on the SmartRemote icon towards the bottom of the app list. Boot for the first time takes longer then typical.
The SmartRemote will boot to the Android Desktop. Scroll to the bottom and click on SmartRemote app link.
You will see the SmartRemote.apk launching.
Once finished loading, click the "CONFIGURE WIFI" button.
Turn Wifi On (top right)
In a few seconds, you will see your available Wifi Access Points that are within RF range.
Select the appropriate access point. Only connect the SmartRemote to the one Wifi Access Point that connects to myServer. If you add a second wifi network, then the device might get on the wrong network and you'll wonder why the SmartRemote isn't able to control anything.
Type that access point's password. You can click Show password to be sure you are selecting the correct letters / numbers from the tiny keyboard.
Once the password is entered, scroll down a bit and click on Advanced Options.
Recommended is to deselect DHCP and select Static addressing. This will allow the SmartRemote to connect to the network fast.
Type your correct IP address for the device. Ensure it is not already in use, and if you set Static, then ensure the IP address is not in the DHCP range for the Router. You can click on the webpage to temporarily remove the on screen keyboard that may be covering the field you need to click on or see.
Type your Gateway IP address. Typically this is your Router's IP address on the LAN. (not WAN).
Type your DNS server 1 and 2 addresses. This can be provided by your Internet service provider. You can also use Google's DNS servers which are: 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52
Once all of your info is entered, the Connect button will be clickable. Click it.
Your SmartRemote should soon be on the network!
Click and hold on the bottom of the screen to get the on screen navigation buttons to appear. Click the furthest button to the right. This will allow you to CLEAR ALL.
Once you are back to the Desktop, relaunch the SmartRemote app.
You will see a popup message to Allow SmartRemote to access precise Location. Click Always Allow.
If you are online, you should see the screen to enter your network information for myServer.
Most of the time, it's easiest to just click the "Discover" button on the bottom right. If your myServer 6 controller is online, then the SmartRemote software should find it, and auto configure itself.
To Manually configure, type on the myServer IP Address box. The on screen keyboard will appear. Type myServer 6's IP address.
Next, click non the Project Name box. Type "smartremote" (no quotes).
Click on the Clientname field. You can name your remote what you want. For our purposes, we will call it "SmartRemote1".
Click the Save and Launch button.
The SmartRemote.apk (the "app") will launch, check that it's on Wifi, connect to myServer 6, and load the user interface template home page that you defined.
From a PC browser, go to myServer 6's Dashboard. Click on Management / Drivers / AndroidTV's configure button.
Click the Discover button. Soon, the powered on and networked SmartRemote will be added automatically. You should see it's power state in the Power Testing area. Here you can update the SmartRemote.apk if updates are available. The apk updates are distributed in myServer 6 updates.
You can also test launching the smartremote.apk and shutting it down from within myServer's Driver dashboard.
The reset of the configuration is done in myServer 6's templates and macros, automation rules, etc.
