This guide should be used primarily for setting up AskCody Meeting Room on the following Crestron models:

To show your AskCody Today+ meeting room displays on a Crestron Device, you need to make sure that the firmware version on your Crestron devices is ver. 2.009.0061.001 or later.

To check the firmware version on your Creston devices, please follow these steps:

  1. Launch the setup screen on your Crestron device or in the Crestron Cloud management portal
  2. Press the "About" button on your Crestron device or click on the "Device" tab in the Crestron Cloud management portal

There two ways of showing your Today+ on a Crestron device. 

  • Deploy the AskCody application from the Crestron Cloud management portal 
  • Deploy the AskCody application from the Crestron device directly

Deploy from Crestron Cloud management portal

The Crestron Cloud management portal can be accessed by connecting to the IP-address of your Crestron device in a browser. The IP-address for your Crestron device can be found in the settings menu.

First-time setup information

This only needs to be done the first time you reboot the device after selecting the AskCody application. Once the license key has been saved in the AskCody application, the Today+ will open automatically if the device is rebooted in the future. 

To change the license key, you need to select the Crestron Default application and reboot the device. Once the device is rebooted, you need to repeat the steps for deploying AskCody, and then you can input another Today+ license key.

Deploy from Crestron device 

To deploy the AskCody application directly from the Crestron device, you need to access the setup screen. This is done by placing five fingers on the touch screen display and hold for 15 seconds.
