Setting Up

The instructions said that before installing the software and setting up the Sirocco, to connect the device to a PC using the provided Ethernet cable. Later, after you have finished setting up and no longer need the wired connection, you can unplug the device from Ethernet and use it wirelessly. Instead of following their instructions for connecting the device directly to a PC, I connected the Sirocco to my LAN via a router Ethernet port and installed the software. Figure 2 shows the Sirocco's software installation screen.

Software Installation

Figure 2: Software Installation

Once the software was installed, the Setup Wizard appeared, allowing you configure the device for your network. Figure 3 shows the Setup Wizard where you can select the Device Configuration button.

The initial step of the setup was in locating the Sirocco device on my LAN. Once the Sirocco was located, it appeared under the list of available devices (Figure 4).

Device Selection

If you have more than one Sirocco on your LAN, you can separately select, configure, and name the devices. Figure 5 shows the screen in which you can rename your Sirocco so that you can identify it if you have more than one.
