With a few minor exceptions, every Q-SYS hardware peripheral device in your Q-SYS Design File is automatically monitored by Enterprise Manager and will require a Peripheral license for Enterprise Manager.
Require Peripheral licenses
- Q-LAN connected I/O endpoints (Q-SYS networked amplifiers, NV-32-H, PTZ 12x72, I/O-Frame, etc.).
- 3rd Party devices being monitored by Enterprise Manager
Do not require Peripheral licenses
- Non-networked amplifiers
In Q-SYS Designer Software v8.1 and higher, the Inventory Grouping tool includes a “Group by Enterprise Manager” option that shows every device in your design that requires a Peripheral license.
You can optionally choose to monitor any 3rd party peripherals in Enterprise Manager by using either ‘Q-SYS Reflect Enabled Plugins’ or the ‘Monitoring Proxy’ Control component found in Q-SYS Designer v8.2 or higher. If you choose to monitor 3rd party peripherals with Enterprise Manager then each of those devices will require a Peripheral license.
