Velocity - Control Panel - How to configure an iOS device (iPad, iPhone)

This article will cover how to set up your iOS device (iPad or iPhone) to control Velocity.

 

Prerequisites

  • You will need to know your iOS device IP address.
    • If you do not know your IP address, it can typically be found in settings -> WIFI -> 'Your network connection.'
  • Ensure your device is set to static or has a reservation on the network so it does not change.
    • If your IP address changes on your iOS device, it will no longer control Velocity.
  • You should already have a room set up in Velocity.
