5.2 Introduction to Application
In this subsection, we will show you the application layout and menus as well as basic controls. The application is divided into three menu levels. The first screen upon start includes Configuration / Parameters / Basic (see the figure below), which displays all of the three menu levels. The horizontal Main menu (Configuration) helps you select whether to configure 2N® LiftIP, upgrade firmware or record new voice menus. The vertical menus (Parameters) help you select the area to be administered. The third menu level, if meaningful, gets displayed horizontally to the right and includes a list of parameter setting forms.
Window of 2N® LiftIP Service Tool
The main menu contains three pop-up menus. The Device menu helps you connect to or disconnect from 2N® LiftIP and edit sending of statistic data on the application use. You can also download a diagnostic package if the 2N® LiftIP Service Tool is connected to the intercom. Just select the package location on your hard drive and the package will be generated automatically. The package includes all relevant information on the device operation and should be attached to your troubleshooting requests. Use the last option to quit the program. Select the language mutation in the Language menu: CZ and EN are available so far. The Help menu provides a link to the latest manual version and information on the supplier. You will always be warned before logout or quit against potential data loss.
You will also be warned against data loss before loading a new configuration and overwriting the current set of parameters. Confirm your intention to execute the actions to avoid unintentional loss of unsaved parameters.
- No language change will be executed until the application is restarted.
