How To Configure SNMPv3 On Your Room Alert 32S & 12S

In order to configure SNMPv3, your Room Alert 32S must be running firmware v1.1.0 or higher. For instructions on how to update your device, please see How To Update Firmware On Room Alert Monitors.

If your SNMP monitoring application uses SNMPv3, you can configure your Room Alert 32S or 12S to match.

  1. Open your Room Alert Monitor’s web interface by typing the IP address of the unit directly into the address bar of your web browser.
  2. Select Settings in the navigation bar to the left.
  3. Then select SNMP from the options below Settings.
  1. In the SNMP Settings page, select the Use SNMPv3 checkbox.
  2. Once this checkbox is selected, you’ll see the SNMPv3 Configuration section appear on the page.
  1. Under SNMPv3 Configuration, select a Security Level from the drop-down menu.
    • The default is No authentication or privacy.
  2. If you select With authentication but no privacy or With authentication and privacy as your Security Level, you’ll see some or all of these additional fields:
    • In Username, enter the username that’s configured in your SNMP monitoring program.
    • In Authorization Protocol, select the protocol that your SNMP monitoring program is configured to use.
      • The default is HMAC MD5 authentication protocol.
    • In Authentication Password, enter the authentication password that’s configured in your SNMP monitoring program.
    • In Privacy Password, enter the privacy password that’s configured in your SNMP monitoring program.
  3. Select Save Settings at the top or bottom of the page. Your Room Alert will automatically reboot and commit your changes.

Your SNMP program must be configured to use the AES privacy algorithm.
