MOBILE APP SERVER
Setup Guide for Wasco
Welcome to SageGlass! This guide explains how to configure the
SageGlass System and use the mobile app to control your windows.
DOWNLOAD SAGEGLASS MOBILE APP
Download the SageGlass Mobile App (search “sageglass” on Google Play or in
Apple’s App Store). Then proceed to “Connecting to the SageGlass App Server” on
page 3 to configure the SageGlass System.
The following definitions will be helpful background information as you use this guide. See
the illustration on the next page for more information.
SageGlass Mobile App—used to control SageGlass windows from a mobile device.
SageGlass System—includes:
a the SageGlass windows installed in your home
b the SageMesh Coordinator
c a web-enabled device (smartphone, tablet, laptop) connected to the SageMesh Coordinator
(usually via a router). The SageGlass system must be set up before using this guide (see the
SageMesh Coordinator Quick Start Guide).
Location—a customized name that indicates the physical location(s) of the SageGlass windows. For
residential installations, you should create just one location, the residence itself (e.g. “Our House“).
Zones—groups of SageGlass panes, usually near each other, that are controlled as one. For example,
Zone 1 might be all windows in the Master Bedroom, while Zone 2 is the picture window in the
Family Room, and Zone 3 is a Skylight. The Zone’s tint level (and other parameters) can be controlled
using the Mobile App (e.g., command Zone 1 to fully tint all its windows).
Scenes—pre-set tint levels that can be applied to multiple zones. Scenes allow frequently used
commands to be easily applied from the Mobile App.
Auto Mode—SageGlass windows tint based on outside light levels. Auto Mode can be overridden by
the mobile app, but windows will return to Auto Mode after a specified length of time.
Setpoint—Sets the desired interior light level for a room during Auto Mode.

CONNECTING TO THE MOBILE APP SERVER
After having successfully setup your SageGlass System as described in the SageMesh Coordinator Quick Start Guide,
follow these steps to configure your system.
LOG INTO THE SAGEGLASS SETUP SOFTWARE
1 Be sure the mobile device you installed the SageGlass app on is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the SageGlass
Coordinator (your home network or the router you installed with the SageMesh Coordinator).
2 Open the SageGlass app.
3 On the login screen, enter “aaaa“
as username and “bbbb” as
password, then touch the IP
address field.
The app will search the wireless
network for the SageMesh
Coordinator.
When it finds the SageMesh
Coordinator, it will display the
SageMesh Coordinator’s IP
address.
1 Open a web browser. You can do this on any computer or web-enabled device, but setup is easier to do with a keyboard.
If you use a mobile device, it must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the SageMesh Coordinator.
If you use a computer, it should either be on the same Wi-Fi network or connected with Ethernet cable to the same router
as the SageMesh Coordinator.
2 Type the SageMesh Coordinator’s IP address into the web browser’s navigation bar.
Note: Your IP address will likely be different than the one shown below.

MOBILE APP SERVER
3 The login screen will appear. Enter the default username admin and password password and click Submit.
4 The navigation menu will appear.
5 From here you can navigate to the various sections to create and edit users and settings. It is recommended that these
sections be completed in order of appearance:
a create the users
b define the locations
c define zones and/or scenes and assign them to locations
d assign rights for each user
e use utilities to restart the Mobile Server software to confirm all modifications have been made (Utilities has other
functions as well).
For more information about the configuration steps, see below.

CUSTOMIZING THE SAGEGLASS SYSTEM
In this section you will create users, locations, zones, and scenes. This will allow you to custom control your SageGlass
System.
USERS
Users are the people who have access to your SageGlass System.
Note: More than one person can use the same user name.
This section explains
• adding new users
• changing user passwords
• deleting users
Note: For residential installations, it is recommended to define only one or very few users. One defined user can be used
over multiple mobile devices, by multiple people.
Adding a new user
1 Click Users in the main menu.
2 Type in a username and password (twice) and click Submit.
The username can be between 4 and 20 characters long; the password can be between 4 and 10 characters long.
You will get a message saying that the new user was added successfully.

2 Select the desired username from the dropdown list and click Submit.
You will get a message saying that the user has been successfully deleted.
Note: The admin user cannot be deleted.
LOCATIONS
The location is the name you give to the physical location of the SageGlass windows. For residential systems this will
typically be your house.
This section explains
• creating new locations or renaming locations
Note: Residential installations generally define only one location (for instance, Our House).
Adding a new location
1 Click Locations in the main menu.
MOBILE APP SERVER

ZONES
Zones are groups of SageGlass panes, usually near each other, that are controlled as one. For residential installations
there may be only one or very few zones. Zones can contain one or several windows. For example, Zone 1 might contain
the master bedroom windows, while Zone 2 might contain the family room window, and Zone 3 a skylight. Zones can be
controlled using the Mobile App or used to create scenes.
This section explains
• creating new zones and renaming zones
Note: You must create the location before a zone can be assigned to it.
Creating a new zone
1 Click Zones in the main menu.

You will get a message saying that the zone was successfully created.
Note: Existing zones can also be renamed or reassigned to different locations this way.
SCENES
A Scene is a preconfigured setting that can be applied manually to multiple zones. Scenes make it easy to apply frequently
used multi-zone commands from the Mobile App. For example, one scene could change “Zone 1 plus Zone 2 to Full Tint,”
another scene changes “All Windows to Full Tint,” or “Clear all Windows,” etc.
This section explains
• creating, naming, and configuring new and existing scenes
Scene commands differ from zone commands in that they can send commands to multiple zones at once.
Adding a new scene
1 Click Scenes in the main menu.
2 Select the first available unused scene number from the dropdown list, type in a scene name, and select a location.
The scene name can be between 1 and 20 characters long.

3 Select the zones you want the scene to apply to:
a Affects all zones applies the scene to all configured zones.
b Select Zones displays a list of available zones. Check the zones you want to include in the scene.
4 Select Tint(s) and Setpoint(s) from the dropdown lists.
Tint represents manual control commands. For example, if you had a programmable thermostat but wanted the house
a few degrees warmer, changing the set temperature is like changing the tint. After a set amount of time, the windows
return to auto. There are 6 possible Tint settings:
Setting
Description
no change
There is no change to the tint level. This is used when a setpoint only change is to be made.
auto
Returns the zone to Auto Mode

Fully clears the zone. No tint is applied.
2
Sets the zone to approximately 1/3 of full tint
3
Sets the zone to approximately 2/3 of full tint
4 (full)
Fully tints the zone
Setpoint defines the amount of sunlight desired for the room. In the thermostat example, the setpoint is the programmed
temperatures your home is heated/cooled to throughout the day. Setpoints set the desired interior light levels during Auto
Mode. There are 5 possible Setpoint options:
Setting
Description
no change
There is no change to the setpoint. This is used when a tint only change is to be made.
1 (lightest)
Setpoint that allows the most sunlight into the room.
2
Setpoint that allows approximately 1/3 less sunlight than the lightest setting.
3
Setpoint that allows approximately 2/3 less sunlight than the lightest setting.
4 (darkest)
Setpoint that allows the least sunlight into the room.
5 When all of the selections have been made to the zones and their tint/setpoint, click Submit.
You will get a message stating that the scene has been successfully saved.
Note: You can edit existing scenes the same way.

MOBILE APP SERVER
ACCESS
This section explains how to set user access rights. For residential installations, it is recommended to define one or very
few users. One defined user can be used over multiple mobile devices and is probably sufficient for most residential
installations.
This step includes the ability to set zone and scene access permissions for selected users.
This section explains
• setting zone and scene access
Note: It is REQUIRED that access be defined for each user. If you create a new user but don’t assign access rights, that user
will exist but will be unable to control any zones or scenes.
