Onkyo Integration Release Notes

Introduction

You can integrate the Onkyo receiver to a ClareHome control system so that your customers can send commands to the receiver from their Android smartphone or iOS device. ClareHome supports the following features:

  • IP control
  • Volume, including mute
  • Media source
  • Main zone support

The Onkyo receiver integrates with the ClareHome system in a way similar to other entertainment device integrations. All entertainment integrations share a common UI, so that the user experience is consistent.

Installation

A qualified installation technician should install the Onkyo Receiver. Refer to the installation instructions that came with your Onkyo equipment.

Note: You must set a static IP address for your receiver.

After installing the Onkyo receiver, connect it to the ClareHome data network.

To connect the Onkyo receiver to the ClareHome data network with an IP connection:

1. Attach one end of an Ethernet cable (not included) to the LAN port on the back of the receiver. See Figure 1.

2. Attach the other end of the cable to a router on your ClareHome data network.
