Create your own account in Mira Portal. There’s no cost and no obligation. Once you’re in Mira Portal, you can step through the tutorial we’ve created to help you navigate Mira Portal using an example system. The Mira Connect Administrators’ Guide is a good resource if you want more information.
In Mira Portal, create your own organization, site, and room. You can then select equipment to be controlled from the equipment pull-down menus. If you don’t have any equipment to control yet, go to Step 4. If you do have equipment that you want to control, skip to Step 5.
If you have a Mira Connect unit but don’t have any equipment to control yet, place a checkmark in the ‘Simulate Equipment’ box when you’re selecting equipment to be controlled within Mira Portal. Then you’ll be able to see what the Mira Connect user interface would look like with that equipment.
If you don’t have a Mira Connect unit yet either, you can still preview what the Mira Connect user interface will look like on a regular browser. Check out our blog post about the Mira Connect UI Preview. For a demo of the UI Preview feature, see our short UI Preview video.
If you do have equipment to control, check out our Supported Equipment page to see the full list of audio visual products that Mira Connect currently supports.
On that page you’ll find step-by-step integration guides for each manufacturer’s products to help you integrate them with Mira Connect. This includes a guide for integrating Zoom Rooms as well.
Don’t see something on the list that you’d like to see supported? Please share it with us, as we’re always working on adding more products to the list.
To pair a Mira Connect to a room and selected equipment, you’ll need WAN access to allow the Mira Connect to retrieve the settings from Mira Portal. Please review the Mira Connect Network Considerations document for further guidance. If there is no on-site WAN access at the customer’s site, please read our post on Configuring a Mira Connect Without On-Site WAN Access.
If you’d like to integrate Mira Connect with a Microsoft Office 365 Calendar to show upcoming meetings to the room on Mira Connect and to launch dial meetings with one-touch, please see the detailed instructions in the Mira Connect Administrators’ Guide.
