  • Have a computer equipped with a network card, Ethernet cable, and a web browser.
  • (Optional) Have the IP address assigned by your IT department to the Synergis Cloud Link unit.
  • Configure the hardware settings (DIP switches, address dials, etc.) to their final position on the interface modules.
  • Connect the interface modules to the Synergis Cloud Link unit through the proper communication channels.
    NOTE: Because each hardware manufacturer uses a different communication protocol, all interface modules connected to the same RS-485 channel must be from the same manufacturer.
