Username and password #

When accessing the setting or pairing settings for the first time, you will be asked for a user and password. These can be found on the product label on the back of the SMARTstreamer. You can then switch back and forth between the tabs until you close the tab.

General #

After changing the settings restart the device in order to activate the new settings!

Name #

The product name is displayed by default. You can change this based on your needs, especially if you are using several SMARTstreamer, such as ground floor, first floor, etc. Confirm the new name after entering it by clicking on the tick.

Language #

Language used

Time Zone #

Here you select the desired time zone

Uptime #

Here you can check since when the SMARTstreamer has been running continuously. Specification in days, hours, minutes, seconds.

Advanced #

Serial number: Unique serial number of the SMARTstreamer

Firmware: current installed firmware

Firmware update: Select the file and upload it to bring the SMARTstreamer to the latest version and benefit from the latest features.

Restart #

Restart the SMARTstreamer. All settings are retained.

Reset #

The SMARTstreamer is reset to factory settings.

Network #

DHCP (on) #

DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol and describes a process that automatically assigns configuration data to the SMARTstreamer in a network. These include, for example, the IP address and network mask, default gateway

With this setting the SMARTstreamer is configured automatically. The blue LED of the SMARTstreamer lights up permanently after successful registration in the network.

DHCP (off) #

Mode for IT technicians who want to manually assign static IP addresses and other settings to the SMARTstreamer. IMPORTANT: CHANGES BECOME EFFECTIVE AFTER RESTART

Audio #

Minimum Volume #

Analog Input Gain is used to set a minimum volume. This function is highly customer-dependent and is particularly valuable when the sound system is operated by changing employees. The master volume in LIVE mode cannot fall below the setting made here.

Enable network output (Sender mode) #

By activating the slider, the SMARTstreamer sends the audio input set in LIVE mode to the local network to the address set in the RTP stream (see next point). This means that this source (e.g. CHANNEL 1 or others) can be accessed by other SMARTstreamers or SMARTplayers in the entire network.

Disable network output (Receiver mode) #

If you deactivate the sending of the SMARTstreamer, the “sending device” becomes a “receiving device”. This is particularly useful if you want to use the SMARTstreamer for pure music transmission in the local network and thereby want to incorporate conventional sound systems. For example, if you want to send an analog music source in the technical room to an amplifier on the second floor. The “Out” socket on the SMARTstreamer is then connected to the amplifier on site using a cable. You can also integrate and control wired sound systems in the SMART audio system.

RTP Stream #

Here you can select where the SMARTstreamer’s audio signal should be sent. It is always of the “SMARTstream” type, which is fed into the network and can then be accessed by all devices. Which audio source to be sent is selected in LIVE mode and can be every source type – from analog to digital, from local to played via the Internet.

Gain input #

Using the gain control, the input signal from audio sources with insufficient volume can be compensated within a range of -12dB to + 32dB. This only applies to the analog input of the SMARTplayer or SMARTstreamer.

Maximum Volume #

You can also use the gain setting to set the maximum volume by reducing the input signal.

Stream buffer size #

Due to the quality of different networks, the music transmission buffer can be set here. The higher the setting, the more latency (time offset) is in the transmission of audio data over the network.

Cinch socket input (only for ANALOG IN) #

Selection of the analog input signal. If you connect an audio source with only one channel, you can select the corresponding channel, which doubles its volume (and the second channel does not remain unrecorded).

Evacuation (Mute) #

The switch input is used to connect to existing EVAC systems. As standard, the SMARTstreamer is delivered with a bracket that bridges the two contacts. If you remove it, the player is set to “Mute”. According to the EVAC standard, a closed contact means that the music should be playing. This contact is opened in the event of a fire. If the EVAC system works the other way around, this can be changed here. Attention: It is a potential-free contact without voltage! (Damage caused by supplying a voltage is not covered by the product guarantee). IMPORTANT: Reboot the SMARTstreamer in order to activate the new setting!


In this tab you will find preconfigured audio sources. By activating the individual sources, these appear for selection on the LIVE mode. When using a SMARTstreamer, it sends in standard mode on CHANNEL 1 and can be received on the SMARTplayer on CHANNEL 1. No further adjustment is necessary. This applies to CHANNEL 1 to CHANNEL 6.

Activate a preconfigured audio source #

To activate an additional source, select it and activate it by checking the box on the left.

Create a new audio source #

clicking opens a new tab. Then select the type of source.

Type #

Webstream #

Service for creating a digital music source by entering the corresponding URL. If the URL is protected by a USER and PASSWORD, then enter the data according to the following pattern: http://Username:Password@Url . The SMARTstreamer supports exclusively http://…mp3 streams unencrypted. If there is only an encrypted “https” address available, remove the “s” and thereby the encryption is canceld. A list of Radio URL you can find here

Smartstream #

Service for creating additional digital music sources for transmission within the network from a SMARTstreamer to different SMARTplayers or other SMARTstreamers. Only necessary in the event that the 6 preconfigured CHANNEL 1 to CHANNEL 6 are not sufficient. In this case use multicast addresses like URL and number them upwards:; URL, etc. Create this audio source on all devices that are to send or receive the channel.

Smartstream Peer to Peer #

If you would like to set up a direct connection between SMARTstreamer and SMARTplayer, create a new CHANNEL and enter the corresponding IP addresses of the two devices, followed by PORT: 5000, for example

Backup Source (webstream, smartstream) #

This setting serves as a safety function. If, for example, the Internet fails, the SMARTstreamer switches to the set source or function.

File – Micro SD card (beta) #

To play mp3 files that are located on a Micro SD card (not included in the package), enter the name of the specific title along with the corresponding file extension (e.g., birthday.mp3) in order to play the file. If the title is located within a subdirectory, provide the appropriate path (e.g., Events/birthday.mp3).

IMPORTANT: The SMARTstreamer needs to be restarted after inserting the Micro SD card to access its content. This applies every time the card is removed and reinserted. The Micro SD card should be formatted in FAT32 with a maximum storage capacity of 32GB.

Backup source (file) #

Select the action to be performed after the file or files have been played back.

Create Source #

After entering the data, click on “Create Source” and a new audio source will be created and available for selection.
