# How to control TrueConf Group

There are several ways to control the endpoint:

  • In meeting room:

    • With a remote control (an IR receiver can be found on the front panel)

    • With hotkeys on the USB keyboard connected to the endpoint.

  • Remotely (using web interface in the local network).

The remote control is powered by two AAA batteries (included in the package).

# Home Screen

Once you have turned on the device, TrueConf Group home screen will be displayed:

  • Upper part of the screen: Local network connection state (IP address of the endpoint if connection is successful or Network unreachable otherwise), date, time and notifications panel. Besides, in the upper part of the screen, users can check the status of SIP/H.323 registration:

    • SIP registration: if successful, you will see the endpoint’s name on the SIP server, e.g., SIP: meeting-room. Otherwise, an error code will be displayed, e.g., SIP: 200 Unregistered

    • H.323 gatekeeper registration: if successful, you will see the endpoint’s name on the H.323 gatekeeper, e.g., H323: meeting-room. Otherwise, an error code will be displayed, e.g., H323: TransportError.

  • Central part of the screen: main menu

  • Lower part of the screen: notification icons

  • Video from the webcam connected to the endpoint displayed in the background.

To go to any section in the main menu, you need to move the focus to it by using the arrow buttons on the remote control or keyboard and press OK.

To choose an item in the drop-down list or enter text, you need to move the focus to the corresponding element and press OK.

In addition, you can use the onscreen or regular keyboard to enter text. To call the onscreen keyboard, focus on the field and press OK on the remote control.
