# Setup

If you have a Micro USB cable you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the Syrus is powered down.
  2. Connect the 5-in-1 combo antenna to the device antenna connectors.
  3. Plug in the USB cable to the computer and connect the micro connector to the Syrus.
  4. Connect the 4 pin power molex to the Syrus and connect the RED and BLACK power cables to the 12 volt power supply. Wait 60 seconds.
  5. From the same molex connect the YELLOW (Ignition) cable to 12V in order for the device to remain ON and not go into power saving mode.

Depending onthe operating system your computer could automatically recognize a new USB device and automatically install the necessary drivers.
Give it another minute while it detects and installs it, if successful you can move on to the Management Tool section or shell access.

Otherwise keep reading for intructions on installing the drivers manually.

# Windows

Note if your Windows computer does not recognize the Syrus, you'll need to download the following drivers and install them manually. Main driver / Alternate driver.

# Management Tool

The Management Tool is the graphical UI that allows you to interact with the device.

With the micro USB cable connected to the computer open a web browser and visit the page: http://192.168.9.2

You should see the following screen on login

The default login info is:

Username: syrus4g
Password: 123456

# Hotspot/Router discovery

Syrus 4 comes preprogrammed to find an access point with the following credentials over the 2.4GHz band:

SSID: Syrus4G
Pass: syrus1234

this means that once it's powered up if you have a router broadcasting that SSID and password, Syrus can connect to it and you can find it on your network.

# Connect to the internet

# Wireless

The Wireless section allows to connect to a Wireless 2.4 GHz network. Select the network and enter the passphrase to connect.

Once the device has an IP address assigned you can unplug the USB cable and visit that IP address to access it:

# Cellular/Mobile

Syrus comes with an embedded SIM card that's disabled by default. This SIM card can be enabled via the Mobile menu. Once enabled the SIM will connect automatically to the network.

You can also choose to select an external SIM and enter its APN settings below.

# Shell access

For secure shell (SSH) access you can use the following ssh command on terminal or a similar program like PuTTY

ssh syrus4g@syrusrouter

SSH access

You can also get the IP address from your router's device list or from a network scanning smartphone application (make sure your phone and the Syrus are on the same network).

# Programming (Syruslang)

In order to program the Syrus to report to any endpoint you'll need to go into the Application Manager section from the menu and there you'll find the SyrusJS app. Click the Check for updates button to make sure you're running the latest version.

SyrusJS

click the menu next to the app and open the app directory, download any of the configurations from the Syruslang guide, and click Upload.

Configuration

Press Save and START or RESTART the application.

You can view the logs from the LOGS menu.

# Things to keep in mind

Automatic Sleep Mode Once the Syrus is powered if the Ignition wire is not connected to power, the device will go to sleep automatically after 5 min. While the device is asleep the red LED will flash 1 time every 5 seconds. To prevent the device from entering sleep mode simply power the yellow ignition wire from the 4 pin wiring harness. You can change the sleep mode configuration via an apx tool or the management tool.
