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.

Network Settings and Device Count 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 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. RED-1 devices do not support DHCP addressing. 

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
