Rooms and Equipment | Workflow

Recommended Posts

Good morning

actually not a real problem, but a workflow that I would like to keep.

Experimental setup:
One building has 20 rooms. Each room should be equipped identically. As an example, we then have 20 rooms with one display, one LAN switch and three AVoIP devices. The switch is integrated into the overall network structure of the building.

In order to be able to assign a room to each device in ConnectCad, ALL devices (i.e. all AVoIP devices) would have to be individually numbered and then located as equipment in the rack elevation. 
But that is not what I want. 
Due to the room id, all devices are clearly assigned and i want them to be numbered 1-3 like the AVoIP devices.

Unfortunately, an additional database cannot be included in the evaluation of the circuits.

Has someone happened to solve this task?

I've run into a similar issue where I needed unique names and still wanted to repeat numbering in certain locations. My fix has been to add a location identifier into the device name. So your device names could look something like...


'"Room1 - AVoIP 1"

"Room1 - AVoIP 2"

"Room1 - AVoIP 3"

"Room2 - AVoIP 1"

"Room2 - AVoIP 2"

"Room2 - AVoIP 3"
