Setup the Silence Monitor Portal
To receive Notifications from your Device, it will need to be registered to the Silence Monitor Portal! After creating your account or login-in to your existing one, you can Add devices to your account by clicking on Add Device.
To Add your device you will need to enter the Registration-ID of the device (RID, 12 Character), which is displayed on the back of the device or can be found on the Web Interface of the Device. Name the device and select a timezone, then click "Add Device".
When clicking on "Add Device", the device will be added to your account with a free 3 days trial! At this point, the device needs to be synced with the portal, described in the Next section "Device Installation"!
Connect your Silence Monitor Device to a Network cable, connect the Audio Inputs and Power the device! Make sure that the Network is connected to the Internet!
The device will output its IP-Address over the Headphone Jack or the RCA Inputs (outputs in this case). Alternatively, you can also use the Barix Discovery Tool to discover Barix device in your local network. After receiving the IP-Address, enter it to a Web Browser to connect to the Web-Interface of the device! Username and Password will be asked, while the username will allways be admin, and the password can be found on the back of your device. You can change the Password in the Security settings of the device.
Your Device needs to have the latest Silence Monitor package downloaded to work properly! If you have started up the device just after you have added it to the Silence Monitor Portal, the device should now already have downloaded the latest Silence Monitor Firmware Package on startup.
To figure out if the Download and Sync was successfull, check if the "Service URL" is https://silencemonitor.com/public/api/GetURL! Also, you should see the Silence Monitor Controlls to adjust the Audio Threshold, etc.
If the device was already started up when adding it to the portal or you cannot see any of the indicators above, you have to sync it manually! By clicking on the Sync button, the device will try to contact the Silence Monitor Portal and Synchronise. After downloading the latest software package from the Portal the device will go for a reboot to install it!
Depending on your Network Performance, the download can delay the Syncronisation a bit!
After starting up your device, or syncing it, check on the Portal if your device is shown as online. You may need to refresh the Webpage to reload the state.
Test the Alerts and Audio Uploads by unpluging your audio source (RCA Connectors) from your device.
Receive Mobile Notifications
After setting up your device with the portal, the device will report any incoming silence to the Management Portal! Finally you want to receive alerts on your Mobile phone.
Download the SilenceMonitor App on your mobile phone:
Subscribe to your device
Start the Silence Monitor App and navigate to Add Device. Scan the QR-Code of the device you want to subscribe to. You can find the QR-Code for each device, displayed on the Portal. If you want to subscribe to all of your added devices, scan the QR-Code displayed on top of all the Device, right next to the search bar!
You can also add the Device Manually by typing in the Registration ID (on the backside of the device)
You will now receive all the Alerts that are uploaded to the Management Portal from that device!
Through the Web UI
Access the Web UI with the password on the back of the device. Go to the DEFAULTS tab and click on Factory defaults. The device will reboot and the settings are on default.
Through the Hardware Button
Push the reset button on the front pannel for at least 10 seconds until LED1 is blinking green. Release the reset button, the device will restart and the settings are on default.
