Now the HRD can be connected to the Humly Control Panel, which is connected to the booking system.

You can choose between Default mode, Cloud mode or Demo mode. 



Cloud mode

If you choose "Cloud mode" you need to enter your customer number, which you have been received from Humly when your cloud account was created. The customer number is the first five digits in the Humly cloud address: e.g. xxxxx.humly.cloud. Then click on Connect and continue to select rooms. 


Default mode

If you are choosing "Default mode" you need to enter the FQDN or the IP Address of the Humly Control Panel server and select the room you want to assign the device to.

To register your device to the Humly Control Panel you have to start a timer to allow a new device to be registered the server. Go to HCP > Settings >Device registration. 

Set your time and start the timer to start the registration period. 


If pairing key is enabled the timer is not needed and you can use the pairing key to register the device. 



In "Default mode": Enter the IP address of the Humly Control Panel.6.png

You need a Humly Room display Device License uploaded to HCP to be able to see rooms and connect Humly Room Display to rooms.  In the licenses section you can revisit the steps for adding these licenses.

Select the room you want to connect your HRD to, you can apply filters to based on the country, city or building.





Great! Now the set up is done and the Humly Room Display unit should be ready to use! And it is connected to the Humly Control Panel. Continue by connecting the rest of your Humly Room Displays units and start booking.
