Are the lights on for your Microsoft Teams Scheduling panel? One thing that you might have to do during setup is enable POEPLUS on the Crestron TSS panels. This can depend on what your POE switch is delivering to the panel. You can browse to the web interface of the touch panel and see what is says about the USB Accessory. As you can see below, the panel isn’t seeing the lightbar.
To fix this, we can simply SSH into the panel’s IP Address such as firstname.lastname@example.org and enter the password. You can then type in the below command of POEPLUS ON and then reboot the device.
ssh email@example.com [Password] poeplus on reboot
If you just type poeplus, it will tell you if it’s on or off as per the below.
Now the device has rebooted, you will see the lightbar online now, but if you are remote, you can browse to the web interface and see that it is on.
If the device isn’t showing the lightbar, then you can also run the command, “usbpower on” and then reboot. Someone might have been playing around with the settings and it could have been switched off.
Another question I get asked is how should I conenct the lightbar to the USB connector. Well simply ensure it’s the same as mine below.
Any comments, let me know below.
