    SIP Intercom Setup - Manual Residential Setup

    December 17th, 2021

    This method requires a computer to set up and is more involved than the One-key Config method. The advantage to this method is the ability to customize settings on the Door Station to suit your requirements, as you will be logged into the Door Station’s web interface.

    Below are the example details that we will be using for this guide. If you intend on connecting the intercom to your network for remote access, you will need to obtain the local IP address details for your network. Replace the example IP addresses with IP addresses suitable for your network.

    Device IP Addresses Subnet Mask Gateway Password Type Main/Sub
    Door Station 192.168.1.108     255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 admin123 VTO  Main
    Indoor Monitor     192.168.1.109 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 888888  VTH Main

    Choosing a suitable IP address

    To find the IP range on a network, or to find available IP addresses, follow the steps below.

    Windows

    Finding the IP Range of a Network

    This is useful if you are unsure what the network details are, or if you have requested pre-programming. When pre-programming devices, we require these details.

    1. Connect a Windows PC / Laptop, open the start menu and type cmd.

    2. Launch the Command Prompt program. 

    3. Once it opens, enter the command ipconfig and take a screenshot or copy the information as below. We require the IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway

    4. A screenshot can be taken by pressing the Windows + Shift + S keys simultaneously, then paste it into a document/email with Ctrl + V

    Finding Available IP Addresses

    If you wish to connect devices  to the network for remote access, you must give each device an IP address, within your network range. In this example, we will be using a Windows computer which is connected to a modem to find the IP address of the computer, and available IP addresses to use for the devices. If the devices are being installed on a business or managed network, contact an IT representative for assistance. 

    1. Connect a Windows PC / Laptop, open the start menu and type cmd.

    2. Launch the Command Prompt program. 

    3. Once it opens, enter the command ipconfig and take a screenshot or copy the information as below. Note down the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway

    4. In our example, the IP address is 10.0.0.61. To check what IP address is available, type ping 10.0.0.XXX, where XXX is any number between 2 and 254. If Destination host unreachable or Request timed out is show on screen, there is no device using that IP address. Repeat the process to find multiple IP addresses that are available for use. Every devices requires one IP address. 10.0.0.XXX is used as an example, you the IP Address range will vary depending on the network.

    5. When configuring the devices, use the IP addresses that you have found that are available, making sure each device has a unique IP address. The Subnet Mask and Default Gateway, will be set the same on each device.

    MAC OSX

    Finding the IP Range of a Network

    This is useful if you are unsure what the network details are, or if you have requested pre-programming. When pre-programming devices, we require these details.

    1. Open the Apple Menu (  ) and select System Preferences.

    2. Select the Network option.

    3. Select either Ethernet (for wired connections) or Wi-Fi (for wireless connections), then select advanced.

    4. Select TCP/IP. The details in red are the network details.

    5. A screenshot can be taken by pressing the Command + Shift + 3 keys simultaneously. The screenshot will be saved to the desktop

    Finding Available IP Addresses

    If you wish to connect devices  to the network for remote access, you must give each device an IP address, within your network range. In this example, we will be using a Apple Mac which is connected to a modem to find the IP address of the computer, and available IP addresses to use for the devices. If the devices are being installed on a business or managed network, contact an IT representative for assistance. 

    1. Follow the steps for Finding the IP Range of a Network - Mac OSX.

    2. Press Command + Space bar keys to bring up spotlight.

    3. Type Terminal, and double click on the search result.

    4. To check what IP address is available, type ping 192.168.1.XXX, where XXX is any number between 2 and 254. If Request timeout is show on screen, there is no device using that IP address. Repeat the process to find multiple IP addresses that are available for use. Every devices requires one IP address. 192.168.1.XXX is used as an example, you the IP Address range will vary depending on the network.

    5. When configuring the devices, use the IP addresses that you have found that are available, making sure each device has a unique IP address. The Subnet Mask and Default Gateway, will be set the same on each device.

    Manual Residential Intercom Setup Steps

    Step 1 - Connect the Intercom Equipment

    No Network Connectivity (No Phone App)

    Using 12VDC and direct connection between the devices with a CAT5 cable. (No network connection)

    Network Connectivity (Use with Phone App)

    Using a PoE Switch connected to a router OR using 12VDC and an Ethernet switch connected to a modem.

    Devices connected to a PoE Switch, then to a modem
    Devices connected to a modem/Ethernet switch, and powered with 12VDC

    Step 2 - Configure the Door Station

    1. Connect your windows computer to the network switch/modem with a CAT5 cable.

    2. Configure your computer to be in the same IP address range as the Door Station.

    How to change the IP Address of your computer
