Re: old building tech retrofit?

About every 15-20 years they tune up or upgrade the audio systems in our buildings here, regardless of age. However- there are certain stipulations which the FM Group has to follow per guidelines from Salt Lake. Sometimes Salt Lake will say, sure, go ahead. Sometimes for something we think is practi...

Re: What does this Button do?

More than likely it rings the hallway school bells (if your building is equipped with them, most new buildings now are built without them to save on costs) in the old days, 2 rings would indicate 5 min left and 1 ring would indicate time's up. If it was something you were not supposed to touch, then...

Re: Firewall Losing DNS Settings?

We've run into the same issue where we have 200+ devices trying to connect at the same time which has resulted in the system being overtaxed and becoming useless. I'm betting that 95% of the connections are non-legit, meaning kids playing games, people doing non-church related stuff/apps updating. W...

Re: 4th WAP

Lets remember that most modern WAPs are powered via PoE which means Power over Ethernet which means you have to have be plugging the WAP into a PoE enabled port (not all of the cisco WAPs have their own dedicated power supply) That power can only travel so far before it begins to degrade which means...

Re: PSA - apparently all units should have ComTek receivers

Your local FM/Facilities Group should be the ones responsible for having the COMTEK systems installed into the buildings and providing the 2 or 3 COMTEK listening devices issued to each building. These are only tied into the Chapel sound system. The COMTEK Broadcast device is generally located where...

Re: Where to get personal ALS equipment

Here's the thing with the COMTEK devices- They are for the most part, only tied into the Chapel sound system. In most cases the antenna for the COMTEK broadcaster is in the chapel as well or nearby, which means you walk to another part of the building, the signal will not be present, or be so poor, ...

Re: Organ Line-in

You are fortunate in that you have a decent organ/AV setup like that. It's a good suggestion for those with newer buildings that have that capability.

Re: Webcasting and available bandwidth

Are you disabling Wifi in the building so that the bandwidth is focused on the webcast? We have to do this at our buildings because with 200+ devices trying to connect to the building WiFi it was placing too much of a strain on the system and using up all the bandwidth. We run hard cat-5 cables from...

Request to have my name removed from the records of the chur

Without going into details as to why and without having those who may be viewing this topic try to hound me with the "why's" and "consequences of my actions" nonsense, I am requesting to know the correct procedure in having my name removed from the records of the church. Can I si...
