Hello, just received our first BrightSign and am currently figuring out an implementation strategy.
One thing i've had a hard time finding any information on is an auto on/off feature. I thought i saw this mentioned somewhere in the literature, but what I'm basically trying to do is loop 2 videos from 9am to 5pm. I do not need the videos looped at any other time and was wondering what the best way to achieve this is.
I just mounted an exhibit using two HD600s. I have the monitors and HD600s running on a power-strip using a heavy-duty 24-hour timer to control the on and off of the exhibit equipment. I also have a motion-activated sensor/switch that turns on the HD600s for 10 minutes (or longer when there is activity in the exhibit area). The monitors stay on (can't find a heavy-duty sensor/switch yet) and go to sleep when not receiving a signal. The HD600s take about 15 seconds to "boot" once power is restored.
This last bit got up and running today so I don't have long-term experiences to gauge effectiveness.
I have had to go "off-the-shelf" due to my own technical ignorance and lack of technical electronics support.
