Poco - Network Setup
Poco Digital Lighting Control has the ability to connect
directly through Bluetooth or WiFi on a mobile device or
through an onboard MFD ethernet connection.
As a WiFi access point
The Poco by default serves as a WiFi access point (AP). This connection is good for updating firmware and importing and exporting configuration
file as well as testing and configuration. The SSID is "poco-xxxx" where xxxx is a unique ID that is hardware dependent. Default password is
"lumitec561". WiFi can be disabled under the Ethernet/WiFi configuration on the maintenance page. WiFi IP address for connecting to server is
192.168.4.1 some devices may support http://poco.local
Connecting to an existing access point
The wireless connection can also be configured for connecting Poco to existing WiFi network on the Ethernet/WiFi configuration page. IP address
given will depend on DHCP server and can be determined from Access point connection status page.
Poco is compatible with Bluetooth 4.0 supported Android and iOS devices with an application downloadable from Apple App Store or Google Play

In order to use the 10/100 Base T network connection for communicating, the POCO device must be connected with a standard ethernet cable
(not included) to a device that acts as a DHCP server. Most MFD manufactures have a DHCP server built into the touch screen and supply
multiple network ports for interfacing with networked devices. If all network ports are used for other system components, a network switch must be
used to split the network traffic between two or more networked devices.
