In this groov workshop
00:06
I'll show you how to get started with your new groov box.
00:10
I've already unpacked the box including this quick start guide
00:14
which we'll follow in this video.
00:15
As step one mentions I'll need a computer with a modern web browser
00:19
and also an Opto 22 PAC running modern firmware
00:23
or an OPC UA server like KEPServerEX
00:27
from Kepware shown in other videos in later steps we'll need this
00:31
activation key and the serial number and default hostname shown here
00:37
first connect ETH 0
00:40
to a network that has DHCP and DNS
00:44
like the one in this building then connect power
00:47
now I'll press this button firmly until we see green LED's
00:52
your link activity light should be blinking too
00:55
next we'll use a modern browser to activate and set up a box
01:00
I'm using Firefox navigate to
01:04
activate.groov.com
01:08
I'll login with my email address and my MyOpto 22 password
01:14
click Go enter the activation key
01:18
and click Go and my groov is now activated
01:22
I'll click down here on enter serial number
01:26
which is the first step in getting my license file
01:29
here's where I typed that six digit number from the bottom of the box
01:33
and one more time to verify then click submit
01:38
now I can click here and get license file
01:41
to download that file somewhere I can find later since our groov box has been
01:46
activated
01:47
we have downloaded the license file we're ready to connect using just a
01:52
modern browser
01:53
we're going to apply a license file create some accounts
01:56
and start building pages I just knew that default hostname
02:00
found on the bottom of the box here in the address line in my browser
02:04
I'll type HTTPS
02:08
and the s is important here because we're making a secure connection to the
02:12
groov web server
02:13
after that HTTPS
02:16
type ://opto dash and the rest of your particular default
02:22
hostname
02:23
I'll get the security warning
02:26
which may look different in your browser I'll accept the security warnings to
02:31
continue on
02:32
next I'll see this welcome to groov page
02:35
if you're not getting here your network set up may be different
02:40
check the groov box users guide on our CD
02:44
or our website also remember product support is free
02:48
now we're going to create two user name password combinations
02:52
the first is for groov admin used to administer the physical groov box
02:58
from admin you can do things like change network settings
03:02
and apply updates the second user name and password
03:06
will be one of many you have as part of your groov project
03:09
these log ins let you decide who has what access to the different pages
03:13
you'll build in your project let's go ahead and create this initial groov box
03:18
admin account confirm any additional security warnings
03:23
I'll type my username/password
03:27
and confirm the password again don't forget this user name and password
03:33
if you do you'll have to reset the box back to factory defaults
03:37
next click Create groov admin account
03:43
okay so we've created our groov admin account now we're ready to start
03:47
administering this box
03:48
starting with installing that license file we downloaded earlier
03:52
without the license file you can still use groov in trial mode
03:56
I'll install that license file
04:00
and now we're ready to start building our project starting with the first user
04:04
account
04:05
I'll type the username password password again
04:09
then create groov build account now I'm here in groov build
04:15
this is your development environment down here
04:19
we'll add our pages which will show up here and in this canvas area
04:23
there's the desktop and tablet tab with this handheld have
04:27
where we can arrange gadgets for the smaller handheld devices
04:31
like a smartphone down here we select gadgets to put on each page
04:36
either by choosing the gadget first or starting from the tag
04:40
with this tab let's get some tags to display
04:43
these can come from an Opto 22 PAC
04:46
or just about anywhere via an OPC UA server
04:50
we recommend Kepware's for accessing non Opto 22 PACs
04:54
I'm using their free KEPServerEX trial
04:58
downloaded through groov.com I'll show you the OPC UA option
05:03
first select configure
05:07
devices and tags from either here or here
05:11
click add OPC UA server
05:14
give it a name then the name or IP address of your server
05:19
: and port number click add server
05:22
to connect directly from groov to a PAC
05:26
click add Opto 22 controller type the controllers
05:30
address and browse to that controllers ID B.txt file
05:35
this text file is generated by PAC Control when you compile or download your
05:40
strategy
05:41
and the same folder as the strategy itself I'll browse to a copy of that
05:45
text file
05:46
then click import and close
05:50
now I'll have lots of tags to choose from but before I connect these tags to
05:55
gadgets
05:55
I need a place to put them so I'll create my first page
05:59
click add page here on the left
06:02
I'll name this first one home click OK
06:06
now I'm ready to add a gadget I can do this from the bottom right here in groov
06:11
build
06:13
either starting by selecting a tag or from this gadget tab
06:17
then I can either double-click the gadget I want
06:20
or click and hold to drag and drop it onto the page
06:24
now since I haven't yet selected a tag
06:27
I'll go up here in the top right to my gadget properties
06:31
and choose from my PAC strategy tags I'll select my store temperature here
06:37
then adjust the min and max properties
06:42
for those round gauge add an optional redline time zone
06:46
for when it gets too hot I'll make the start value
06:50
eighty degrees and the end value ninety and change the color to red
06:55
now let's check it out I'll switch to groov view
06:59
by choosing file save all and switch to groov view
07:02
it's just that easy I'm looking at my store temperature
07:05
to switch back to groov build I'll click on this gear here
07:09
in the top right corner notice here at the top
07:15
I'm in the desktop and tablet tab
07:18
on this handheld tab a slightly different handheld version of this
07:22
page is
07:22
automatically built for me check this out
07:26
if I add another gadget on this desktop version of the page
07:29
then click on the handheld tab
07:32
I have all the same gadgets but I can now arrange them how I want
07:37
for handheld devices see how nicely that scales
07:41
that's why we say groov is made for mobile
