Learn how to program and configure the RED-1 remote control.
- Configuring a RED-1 from Audia/Nexia software
- Configuring a RED-1 from its configuration menu
- Controlling the triangle feedback indicator on a RED-1
- Creating a RED-1 configuration in multiple languages
- Creating multi-page RED-1 configurations
- De-selecting or muting sources with a RED-1
- Disabling a RED-1 remote controller
- RED-1 programming basics: Source Selection
- Touch capacitive wheel & button allow scrolling and selection of settings
- High contrast OLED display with multi-language support (Latin, simplified Chinese, Japanese, Cyrilic)
- PoE Class 1 device (3.2W at full display utilization)
- Up to 32 programmable logic outputs create logic pulse (momentarily high) on center button press
- Device Found (DF) logic output provides indication of RED-1 connectivity to the network
- DHCP or Static IP addressing mode (Default static IP: 192.168.1.201)
- Lock code password protects access to device
Power over Ethernet technology (PoE) - IEEE 802.3af
Power over Ethernet technology consists in transferring power along with data over standard Ethernet topology. PoE devices are organized by class (1-4) depending on their power requirements (up to 15.4W) and receive power from a PoE network switch or PoE injector. RED-1 devices require either power supply method.
Mounting / Mechanical Specifications
To accommodate international back-boxes and multiple mounting options, RED-1 is a surface mount device. An RJ45 + IDC connector (terminal block) provide data and power from the network. Dimensions of the device are 4.7" x 5.1" x 1.25" (120mm x 130mm x 31.5mm). The RED-1 surface mounts to most walls and has a wide variety of mounting holes that accommodate standard US and International back boxes.
The RED-1 is also available in a flush-mount version (RED-1F). Dimensions of the RED-1F are 6.22"H x 5.82"W x 0.5"D (158mm x 148mm x 12.7mm). The RED-1F mounts using either the included retrofit ring or a Raco® 254 backbox.
Default Settings and Limitations
Networking requirements: RED-1 requires 10/100Mbps standard wired Ethernet connectivity to the same network subnet as the Ethernet port of the DSP unit(s). Devices ship by default with a static IP address of 192.168.1.201 and utilize port 12001/12003 to communicate. To prevent IP conflicts in static addressing, remember to modify the IP address if multiple RED-1 panels are connected to the same network.
Device count limitation: There are two limitations when it comes to how many RED-1 devices can be connected to a network:
- Up to 24 x RED-1 devices may be connected per Audia/Nexia DSP (i.e. 2 x Nexia units, maximum of 48 RED-1 units)
- A maximum of 128 Ethernet Remote Devices (NPS-1 + RED-1) per subnet, no matter how many systems are present.
Linking capabilities: Similar to the NPS-1, physical RED-1 panels are matched to RED-1 software blocks using Device IDs. In other words, if multiple physical RED-1 panels were to share the same Device ID, they will in turn become linked and share the same software features/configuration. On the other hand, Device ID of any RED-1 software block needs to be unique. i.e. RED-1 physical panels can have a common Device ID but RED-1 software blocks can’t.
- The factory default Device ID is: RED-1ID 01
