If a Site Director is at Metasys Release 10.0 or later, you must pair all child supervisory devices that are also at Metasys Release 10.0 or later with the Site Director. After you pair a supervisory device with a Site Director, the two devices use unique credentials to authenticate communication between them. You can pair supervisory devices with a Site Director during a code download. For more information about device pairing, see Pair Network Engine with Site Director.
To pair supervisory devices with a Site Director during a code Download, complete the following steps:
- In the top username and password fields, enter an administrator account user's credentials for the Site Director, and then click Test Login. If the log in is successful, Login ID is OK appears next to the Test Login button and in the Selected Action column.
- If the Selected Action
column of the Device table shows Login ID is not OK
for any device, complete the following steps:
Note: If Pairing not needed is shown in the Selected Action column, then the device is at a release earlier than Metasys Release 10.0, and does not need to be paired.
- Select the device.
- Enter the username and password for that device's security database, and click Test Login. When the log in is successful, Login ID is OK appears next to the Test Login button, and in the Selected Action column for that device.
- Click Next.
