Safety Precautions: Please make sure to first read the safety information in order to avoid hazards.
Setup the Device
Connect the AudioPoint to your network or WiFi-Router using a standard ethernet cable. Be aware that the AudioPoint only works in the same network than the WiFi devices.
Connect your audio sources (up to two per unit) to the RCA interfaces. Since the AudioPoint can only stream mono audio to the listeners mobile phone, both interfaces work independently. They will show up as two seperate channels on the Mobile Phone.
Connect a headset to the connector on the front panel to listen to the IP-Address of the device.
Connect the power supply to the device and then to an appropriate electrical source. While the device is booting you should hear the IP-Address announced at startup (DHCP by default). You can connect to the device by putting the IP-Address into a Browser as described later at the configuration part.
When LED1 becomes solid green, the system is up and running.
Get your Mobile Phone ready
After Powering the device, download the App for receiving the AudioPoint stream.
Barix recently released a new developed App with a new Design named AudioPoint. For compatibility to older devices, the old AudioSignage app is still available (not maintained anymore)!
AudioPoint App: https://apps.apple.com/ch/app/audiopoint/id1508163144
Audio Signage App: https://apps.apple.com/ch/app/audio-signage/id932316996
Audio Signage App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.barix.audiosignage
After downloading the App on your phone, connect your phone to the WiFi you want to stream through. Start the App and you should see two channels (by default: Local_Left and Local_Right), one for the left and on for the right RCA Input. You should allready be able to listen to the source you connected earlier. If you have multiple AudioPoint Devices installed in the same network, you will see multiple channels and if the channels are named teh same both will show up, they will not merge.
Change the channel settings
To connect to the Device, enter the announced IP-Address into any Browser on your PC. Regarding to your Network, you may also need to be in the same network with your PC to access the device. If you did not hear any IP-Address through the Headset, download the Barix Discovery tool from https://www.barix.com/downloads/ to scan the network for Barix Devices! (works only in the same Network)
You will be prompted for a username and password when trying to access the device, fill the username with admin, the password is printed on the backside of the AudioPoint device. When logged in you can change the password of the WebUI in the security settings of the device.
