IMPORTANT! To add a controller to BaseManager, the controller must have an active communication option such as Wi-Fi, Cell Modem, or Ethernet Radio, and the controller must be connected to BaseManager over the Internet.
After a controller connects to BaseManager, but before it has been added to a company and a site in BaseManager, the controller displays a PIN.
BaseStation 3200 V12 Controller
The PIN displays in pop-up message as shown in the illustration. Write down the PIN paying careful attention to the upper and lower case letters.
If you need the MAC address for the BaseStation 3200 controller, turn the controller's dial to the Network position, and then press the Enter button to select the BaseManager Server Setup option. The MAC address is recorded on that screen.
BaseStation 1000 Controller
The PIN displays in a message, but after that message box is dismissed from the display, you can find the PIN on the BaseManager Info screen. To display this screen, press the System Setup button. Press the ↓ button to highlight the Network Setup option, and then press OK. Press the ↓ button to highlight the BaseManager Info option, and then press OK. The PIN displays on the last line as shown in the illustration.
Write down the PIN paying careful attention to the upper and lower case letters. If you need the MAC address of the BaseStation 1000 controller, it is recorded in the MAC field on this screen.
To add a controller to BaseManager
BaseManager users with Site Manager or Company Admin accounts can access the BaseManager Administration interface and add controllers to sites within the company.
Note: Remember that the PIN is case sensitive. You must type the uppercase and lowercase letters exactly as they were displayed on the controller.
Note: Limit the number of characters in the friendly name to 32 characters (BaseStation 1000) or 42 characters (BaseStation 3200). If you enter a longer name, the controller will automatically shorten it, and then pass the new version back to BaseManager.
Note: If the controller that you added does not show up in the list under the menu on the left side of the map, you might need to refresh the web page. Click Ok when the browser displays a message about resending the data.
