How To Set (Or Reset) A Password On A Room Alert Monitor (Legacy)

Using the new version of the Room Alert Monitor web interface? Please click here for the appropriate FAQ.

You may set a password for the ‘Settings’ page of each individual Room Alert Monitor to prevent unauthorized users from modifying settings like alert thresholds, static IP addresses and email servers. The ‘Status,’ ‘Help’ and ‘About’ pages of the Room Alert Monitor web interface may not be password protected.

Passwords may be up to 15 alphanumeric characters. They should not include symbols.

Setting a Password

1. Open the Room Alert Monitor web interface. You may open the interface using Device Discovery or Device Manager, or by typing the IP address of the unit directly into the address bar of your web browser.

2. Select the Settings tab at the top of the screen.

3. The authentication dialog box will appear.

– Leave Username blank. Usernames are not required by Room Alert security settings.

– In Password, enter the existing password if there is one; otherwise, leave the field blank.

– Then select OK or Log In (depending on the browser).

Resetting An Unknown Password

If you have lost the password to your Room Alert Monitor Settings page, you’ll need to reset the unit to factory defaults to regain access. Resetting to factory defaults erases all existing settings, including the existing password.

Please see our FAQ How To Reset Room Alert To Factory Defaults for instructions.
