Configuring the Epygi QX IP PBX for use with Leviton
OmniTouch 7 Touchscreens
and Helios 2N Door Stations
The Leviton home automation
solution, featuring the powerful OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen device, can be
configured with an Epygi IP PBX to offer paging and door station control when
used with a door station, such as the 2N Helios IP Force.
The following components are
- Epygi QX IP PBX:
QX200 IP PBX (QX50 and QX2000 are also compatible) software version 6.1.5 or
- The Leviton
OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen using software version 1.14 or higher.
- For configuring
the Leviton devices Dealer PC Access using software version 18.104.22.1683 or
- Omni pro II
using software version 3.14A or higher.
Helios IP Force door station using software version: 22.214.171.1248.3. NOTE: A software license key is required to enable
the HTTP API interface to allow the door relay to be operated from the
OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen.
Configuring the Epygi IP
Since the Epygi has a
built-in firewall and DHCP server the system has a WAN port as well as a LAN
port. The WAN port can be used to
connect to an existing private network or even to a public network. By default, the WAN port will receive an IP
address if connected to a local network with a DHCP server. The LAN port can be
used as the DHCP server for the network. By default, the LAN DHCP server will

the details provided are for a network that has an existing router that will
also be the DHCP server on the network. The Epygi IP PBX, the 2N Helios door
station and the Leviton OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen will all be connected to
have an IP from the network DHCP server. See figure 1 for the network

the local network (Figure 2). In this case the OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen, doorstation and IP
phones would be connected to the Epygi IP PBX LAN port.
connected to Epygi IP PBX LAN. The Epygi is the Firewall/Router acting as the
DHCP server to the OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen, doorstation and IP phones, all
connected on the Epygi LAN.
To connect to the LAN IP
address of the system (172.30.0.1) you will need to set a static IP address on
your PC to be in the same subnet (e.g. 172.30.0.100):
- Using a standard network patch cable, connect
the Epygi WAN to the local network.
- Using a second
network patch cable, connect the PC being using to configure the system to the
LAN port of the Epygi.
- Change the PC’s
ethernet adapter settings to have a static IP address (e.g. 172.30.0.100) to be
in the same subnet as the Epygi.
- Open a browser
and connect to the Epygi LAN using 172.30.0.1.
Enter the default Username (admin) and Password

Add Extensions for IP phones, Touchscreens
and Door Stations
– Extensions and press Save to leave at the default of three-digit
extension numbering. Extensions can be
deleted and re-added later if needed. The extensions management page is shown (Figure 3). Each
extension has been assigned to either an FXS port or an IP Line. The IP phones, Touchscreens and door stations
will be configured to the extensions with the IP Lines. If needed, an IP Line can be re-assigned from
one extension to another extension. In the example below, if extension 102 will
be used for a door station the Attached Line will need to be changed from FXS 1
to an IP Line.
