Please note that the steps are for the setup of Mediola AIO Gateway V5.
For Mediola AIO Gateway V5+ please use “AIO CREATOR NEO” (Available for Windows and Mac OS). For further instructions please visit the mediola website http://www.mediola.com/service

Once you have connected the mediola gateway to the network, go to “Setup”, select your connected gateway and press “Activate cloud access”.
In order to do that, you have to set up a password for the gateway. (Note that this password is a local one for the gateway)
Go back to the setup main menu and select “Account”. If you already have a mediola account, please enter the email address and the password to login to your account, if not, please create a new account. (Note that this account will be used later to authenticate to Conrad Connect)
Now you are ready to connect devices to mediola Gateway.
Go to “Rooms” and create a new room.
Select the “Add new device…” option. First select the type of the device from the list and then a brand. Follow the instructions in the device’s manual and the in-app instructions, as they may vary depending on the particular device. (Note that mediola is available only via the Maker Channel, that means that functionality is limited.
For better performance, please verify if some of the devices can be connected directly to Conrad Connect)
Once you’ve connected your devices, you are ready to connect mediola with Conrad Connect.
In the mediola app go to “Setup”, “Account”, select “Configurations” and select “Save current config”
Then you need to enter your username and password (The password should be the local one, as described earlier)
Once done, press “Export to cloud” (This will send your configuration to the mediola cloud. If changes are made you need to save or update the configuration once again, and then also export it to the cloud)
After exporting go to the mediola cloud using the website https://cloud.mediola.com/login .
Login with your mediola account
In the cloud web interface go to “Cloud Configuration”, then “Calls”. Here you can choose the device connected to mediola, and receive the desired data for the Maker Chanel.
Go to the Conrad Connect platform, go to the project editor and in “Actuactors” list select “Maker” There you can see fields like “Url”, “Method” and “Content-Type”. It is necessary to fill in these fields with the information from the mediola cloud, described in the previous steps.
Now you are ready to use Mediola with Conrad Connect!
