Configuration using the Gramofon Setup app

 

The below instructions are available for units running latest firmware version 3.1.9.
Some information might vary if yours run an older version. 

 

The Gramofon Setup app is one of the 2 available tools to set up Gramofon, in this case from mobile devices. If you don't possess any compatible mobile device, or simply you prefer to use a computer, please check out this article instead.

This app, available for iOS and Android devices, allows you to configure your Gramofon’s settings, including the name and WiFi signal, turn off/on the Gramofon's LED circle, enable/disable separate/cloned WiFi signal.

Note: if you need to set up more than one Gramofon, please note you can only configure one unit at once. It is important that you configure the first unit while the other is powered off. Once first unit configuration is finished, close the Gramofon Setup app, turn off the WiFi on your device (smartphone/tablet) and open it again to continue with the second Gramofon configuration.

 

  1. Configure your Gramofon
  2. Access to Settings of your Gramofon

 

1. Configure your Gramofon

Before opening the app, you need to connect manually to the "Gramofon Configuration" WiFi signal.

Open the app and tap on the Start Setup Now button.

The app will look for Gramofons available for a new set up ("Ready to set up"). The name of their WiFi signal and MAC will appear in the New Gramofons section. 

 

Once you click on the Gramofon you wish to set up, the app will invite you to modify its name if desired. Then tap "Set name".

The "Connect your Gramofon" screen will then be displayed:

 

  

    • Connect your Gramofon in WiFi mode

If you wish to set up your Gramofon in WiFi mode, choose the WiFi network you normally use (here "Home main WiFi signal") among the list of available WiFi networks on range. Enter and save the WPA password of the signal to continue.

Note: while inserting the password it will remain visible to help you make sure it's correct, and this way avoid any authentication issue.

 

Then you'll be able to choose whether to extend your home WiFi signal or not. Just click on your preferred option.

You’re almost done! Now just review the information on the last screen and tap "OK, apply changes". The Gramofon can take several minutes to get connected and the LED will switch from blinking red to blinking blue. Meanwhile, you are invited to learn more about compatible music apps.

Once the Gramofon light stops blinking blue (solid blue) you are ready to stream music.

If this is not the case, please refer to Troubleshooting.

  

Note: if you tap "OK, let's go!" at the top right corner of the last screen (which displays compatible music services), you will come back to the main screen of the app. You will notice that the Gramofon you just configured is now listed in the section "Gramofons around" and is shown as "Not available". This is normal as you are still connected to the "Gramofon Configuration" WiFi signal.

If you wish to access your Gramofon settings, simply open your WiFi settings to connect to the correct WiFi signal. Back in the app, you will now be able to select the Gramofon and access its settings.

    • Connect your Gramofon in cable mode

If you wish to set up your Gramofon in cable mode, plug the Ethernet cable now (from the internet port of your Gramofon to your ISP router). In the "Connect your Gramofon" screen, tap "Connect via cable" at the bottom of the screen.

Then you'll be able to choose whether to create a separate WiFi signal or not. Just click on your preferred option.

If you choose to create a separate WiFi signal, you will be invited to modify the name and choose a password (between 8 and 63 alphanumeric chars) for the Gramofon WiFi signal you are about to create.

Note: while inserting the password it will remain visible to help you make sure it's correct, and this way avoid any authentication issue.

Tap "OK, apply changes" to continue (if you prefer not to create a separate WiFi signal, you'll be directly invited to review the set up information).

 

You’re almost done! Now just review the information on the last screen and tap "OK, apply changes". The Gramofon can take several minutes to configure. Meanwhile, you are invited to learn more about compatible music apps.

Once the Gramofon light stops blinking (solid blue) you are ready to stream music. To do so, remember that you will have to connect to your Gramofon WiFi signal (in this example, "Gramofon_room_WiFi") or your home WiFi signal (to which your Gramofon is connected to). 

If this is not the case, please refer to Troubleshooting.

  

Note: if you tap "OK, let's go!" at the top right corner of the last screen (which displays compatible music services), you will come back to the main screen of the app. You will notice that the Gramofon you just configured is now listed in the section "Gramofons around" and is shown as "Not available". This is normal as you are still connected to the "Gramofon Configuration" WiFi signal.

If you wish to access your Gramofon settings, you can:

  • Tap the refresh symbol so your device connects automatically to your home WiFi signal.
  • Or open your WiFi settings to connect to the Gramofon WiFi signal. Back in the app, you will now be able to select the Gramofon and access its settings.

2. Access the Settings of your Gramofon

To access the settings of your Gramofon(s), connect to the WiFi signal cloned by the Gramofon (if configured in Clone WiFi mode) or its separate WiFi signal (if configured in cable mode), open the app again and tap on the "Start Setup Now" button. 

The app will show all the Gramofons that you ever configured from the device you're using (as long as none of them has been reset to factory settings). The Gramofons that are not in range will appear as "Not available", and the Gramofons in range and connected to the internet will appear with a blue button representing the actual status of their LED light. Here you can tap it to turn off/on the LED if desired.

Note: At this point, if you see a red download button appear at the left of the LED indicator, it will mean that an upgrade is available to Firmware version 3.1.9

When you select a Gramofon, the settings menu will appear giving you the option to:

 

 

Change of configuration

There are two ways to change your Gramofon configuration mode:

      1. Perform a factory reset and reconfigure it
      2. From the settings, tap on the field "Connected to"

1. From WiFi to Cable

If your Gramofon is connected via WiFi and you wish to switch to a Cable configuration mode:

  • Tap the field "Connected to" 
  • Connect via Cable 
  • You will be prompted to factory reset, press "OK, reset now"
  • Connect the ethernet cable from the internet port of your Gramofon to an internet port of your router 
  • Repeat the configuration process choosing the "Connect via cable" option

2. From Cable to WiFi

If your Gramofon is connected via Cable and you wish to switch to a WiFi configuration mode:

  • Tap the field "Connected to" 
  • Choose the WiFi network which corresponds to your home router main WiFi signal
  • Apply the changes to complete the configuration
  • The LED will start blinking blue, once it's back to static blue you can disconnect the ethernet cable (the LED will blink blue again and back to static blue)

Local IP

The local IP data is particularly useful if you wish to access the Gramofon web interface. To do so, you would simply have to connect to its private signal, open your browser from any device and type in the address bar http://local IP shown in the app.

Turn off/on the WiFi repeater option

Notes:

  • Firmware version 3.1.9 is being rolled-out as of December 2015 
  • If you used your Gramofon as an extender, turning off the WiFi repeater option will imply that you will not be able to extend your home network anymore (unless you enable it the option again)

If you choose to disable the WiFi on your Gramofon, this will mean that it will stop acting as a WiFi repeater. When pressing the button to off/on, you'll see the LED go from static to blinking blue and then to static blue again. And, the "WiFi network" toggle button will go from green to grey.

Note: the repeated WiFi network name and password will remain visible to help you identify it.

Factory reset

Restoring the factory settings of your Gramofon might be necessary if you misconfigured it, if you lost the password of your management console or if you just want to restore default settings to make sure that no older settings is getting in the way of what you are trying to configure.
