Article Summary

The micnode2 device utilizes power over Ethernet, combining power supply and communication. Therefore, begin by connecting the device to your network with a LAN cable and then proceed to establish the network connection. Access the nnounce configuration UI to define the LAN setup. If you are incorporating the micnode2 station within a Q-SYS installation, you will perform further steps in the Q-SYS designer and download the micnode2 plugin. This configuration is auto populated to the nnounce ecosystem and micnode2 station and vice-versa. To complete your configuration, set up streams and define the UCI you will use for paging from the station, or you can use the built-in paging dashboard.

Description
Connect your micnode2 device to your network with a data communication cable CAT5 with a RJ45 connector. The network switch port needs to conform to IEEE 802.3af standards as the device uses power over ethernet.
CAUTION: The device uses power over ethernet (PoE) and requires a network switch port complying with IEEE802.3f standards.

NOTE: Use the LAN B port for a secondary connection if required.



  1. Connect the device with the LAN A port.  NOTE: Ensure that the locking tab on the plug of the cable snaps into the RJ45 connector of the device rear panel
  2. Connect the device to the network, with DHCP enabled.
  3. Use a computer with an Internet browser and search for your micnode2 device by typing into the computer URL https://micnode2- and the last 6 digits of the MAC address of your device, which you can find on the product sticker of your device.
    • Example: https://micnode2-900078 or https://micnode2-900078.local
    • IMPORTANT: Instead of 900078 enter the last 6 digits of the MAC address which you can find on you micnode2 device.
    • NOTE: The device is using mDNS. 
  4. Your web-browser shows the login page of your micnode2 device.
  5. Enter credentials into the nnounce configuration user interface:IMPORTANT: Default credentials admin/simpleway, default PIN code is 23646

Now you are able to access the configuration settings of the device and continue with interface configuration.
