The IX Series 2 is an IP network-based communication and security system featuring video entry security, internal communication, emergency stations, and paging. All units and app in the systems can unlock doors remotely on a network, assist onsite visitors from an offsite location, broadcast emergency announcements, and communicate using a PoE network.
Scalable system is easy to expand – mix and match an infinite (∞) number of door and master stations!
Uses new or existing CAT‑5e or CAT‑6 network infrastructure (multicast support recommended)
Program system functions via Support Tool (recommended) or browser
IP addressable stations provide easy network communication
24/7 streaming from video door stations
ONVIF Profile S Compliant
Integration with Lenel® OnGuard® Integrity®
View third party IP cameras from IX-MV master stations
Forward missed calls automatically
Paging with two priority levels
Priority call queuing
Transfer door calls to any master station
Standard door release wiring to door station or to IXW-MA for added security
IP55, IK07 (IX-DA, IX-BA), IK08 (stainless steel IX Series 2 door stations except IX-DF)
Please download the IX Support Tool (most recent version) from aiphone.net then refer to the IX Quick Start Programming Guide. (https://www.aiphone.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/IX-QuickStart-Programming-Guide.pdf)
Yes, upgrade the firmware on all of the IX devices. Go to aiphone.net and download the latest version of the firmware for each type of IX device, all download the IX Firmware Update Tool, this is needed to update firmware for devices on versions older than 4.0
Make sure that the LAN port on your PC connected to the IX systems IP switch network is on the same IP range as the IX devices.
Initialise the affected devices via the web setting tool (https://IP ADDRESS OF DEVICE/webset.cgi?login) has to be done with Internet Explorer. Then reassociate the devices in Association Settings and try uploading the settings again
Yes you can. They need to be ONVIF Profile S.
Make sure the call station settings have been set in (Call Settings – Call Stations Doors/Sub Station) any device that calls through to another needs to have a U in the field.
Clicking (Upload) only saves the configuration settings in the IX support tool. You then need to go to File-Upload Settings to Station and upload the setting file to the IX devices. Only then will the new settings take effect.
Open an Internet Explorer tab and type the following address (https://192.168.1.160/webset.cgi?login) don’t go to the address yet. Next find the reset button on the device, hold the reset button until the LED on the front starts flashing orange. Once it starts flashing, go to the above address, login with the default user/password of admin, go to initialisation at the bottom of the branch menu and click initialise. You will only have one minute to complete this once the LED starts flashing. The unit will then default to the factory settings of IP address 192.168.1.160 and username/password admin.
There are several steps to changing an already programmed station’s IP address. First, the System Configuration file must be available in Support Tool. If the configuration file is missing, or on a different PC, refer to the next FAQ on recovering it and return to this walk through to continue.
For best results, all stations should be attached to the same unmanaged PoE switch as the programming PC. It is possible to attempt this process over a managed network, however the broadcast protocol used to find the stations may be blocked/disabled.
If a system’s configuration file has been lost, deleted, or is otherwise missing it may be possible to recovered using it the Support Tool.For best results, all stations should be attached to the same unmanaged PoE switch as the programming PC. It is possible to attempt this process over a managed network, however the broadcast protocol used to find the stations may be blocked/disabled.
Ensure that the programming PC is set to the same subnet that your stations have been associated to, and disable any alternate LAN, wireless, or VPN connections your PC may have. If a station has recently been associated, or the date and date have been set, it is possible that station is still in its boot up process. Check for a solid status LED light, or an “available” status on each station before attempting an upload.
The final step in the programming process is to upload a program file to each station. Without doing this, stations are unable to communicate to one another as well as other functions and features. Keep in mind that your programming PC needs to be in the same subnet that your stations have been associated to in order to complete this process.
If any stations are missing from the “Station List” under “Association Settings”, the broadcast used to find stations may be unable to reach them, which is common with managed networks. We recommend placing each station on the same an unmanaged PoE switch as the programming PC. This will allow the station search broadcast to easily find your stations while having the ability to redeploy the once programming is complete.
During the station search and program file upload steps, it may be required to disable any alternate network connections, including Wi-Fi and VPNs, for both processes to complete properly.
