Once done with configuration of the room make sure you activate the room by setting the switch to . If Evoko Home is setup in Default mode this will start the process of importing meetings for the room to the Evoko Home database and make it possible for a Liso device to be configured with the room.
Under "Users" in Evoko Home your able to add and administer users. Adding users is not required unless you want to use PIN/RFID authentication to book meetings etc.
Export settings (Limited mode)
When setting up Liso in Limited mode the configuration is exported from Evoko Home in a
.json file which is uploaded to a Liso device via a USB stick. Pressing "Export Settings" under the menu "Export settings" in Evoko Home should trigger the configuration file (
export_settings.json) to be downloaded in the web browser.
Prepare a suitable USB stick by copying the configuration file (
export_settings.json) to the root directory of the USB. If setting up Liso with Google G Site, make sure to include the .p12 key named
google-credentials.p12 on the USB.
