First steps

The first thing to do is connect your kira module to your network and plug in the power supply. The next step is to access the built-in web pages and configure it as required. Once the module has been configured you can normally perform all required tasks by accessing the modules own browser pages or by controlling with another app.

To find the module on your network and configure to you requirements you will need to use the utility program. This can be freely downloaded here

Save the file to a local folder and then unzip the contents.

Locate the folder called "Java Utility program".

Within this folder click on "kira.exe" (if using Windows) or "kira.jar" (if using a Mac). Note - no installation is required, the program will just run.

The Java Utility program will scan your network and report back any compatible Keene KIRA modules that it finds. 


The module IP address should be listed at the top alongside "select current module". You can now enter this IP into your browsers address bar, or from the java program select "web pages" and then "open module home page".

This main function of the utility program is to allow the capture and storage of infrared code, as well as other less common tasks such as firmware upgrades. These are covered in depth in the "Java program" section but for now we will continue with the web pages configuration.

It is also possible to connect to the module by typing the host name into your browser address bar. If still at factory default this will be 
(note the lack of "www")
