Echo Expansion Bridges
The Unison Echo® Expansion Bridge provides control of the Unison Echo® control system from the Unison Paradigm® architectural control system. This bridge between control systems enables Paradigm control of Echo presets and zones.
The Echo Expansion Bridge also allows connection of up to four individual Echo segments (control systems) so more Echo control stations and Echo Responsive Controls can be used within an Echo control system. Each segment supports 16 power controllers and up to 16 Echo devices (stations or responsive controls). Expansion Bridge integration enables Echo segments to share spaces, presets, and zones.
Note: The Expansion Bridge does not add additional spaces, presets, or zones to the Echo system totals.
Echo Expansion Bridge configuration can be accomplished through the use of the EchoAccess Mobile App or through Unison Paradigm LightDesigner software.
For more information on installing the Echo Expansion Bridge hardware, see the applicable installation guide. ETC's printed documentation is available for free download from etcconnect.com. For information to configure the Echo Expansion Bridge in a Paradigm system, reference the LightDesigner configuration software online help system.
Wink, Edit, and Delete
Options are available to [Wink], [Edit] and [Delete] an Echo Expansion Bridge device that has been discovered or manually connected from the Wi-Fi Connection page. Simply slide the name to the left, revealing the [Wink], [Edit], and [Delete] button.
Selecting [Edit] displays an Edit IP Address dialog. Enter the new IP Address, then tap [Ok] to close the dialog. The new IP Address will display in the Wi-Fi Connection page with an unknown device name. Selecting the new device will prompt the EchoAccess Mobile App to connect to the Echo control system.
Selecting [Delete] removes the selected Echo Expansion Bridge from the Wi-Fi Connection page. There is no undo. If you need to add an Echo Expansion Bridge, tap [Add IP Address] and identify the unit by its IP Address.
To configure the Echo Expansion Bridge you are connected to, select Configuration from the EchoAccess menu, then select the Echo Expansion Bridge from the devices list (it will be the first device in the list when viewed in the default sort.)
