Now that we've confirmed the contents of the box, let's setup the Maivin.
Starting up the Maivin
- Remove the lens guard.
- Connect the Maivin to a shared network using ethernet (RJ45 cable not included).
- Connect the Maivin to a power source. The Maivin should light up with a blue light.
- Note the Maivin's hostname printed under the unit in the format VERDIN-IMX8MP-XXXXXXXX. In the above picture, this hostname is "verdin-imx8mp-07011770" (hostnames are not case-sensitive).
Caution: The Heatsink can get hot during operation. Do not touch.
On first boot you can connect to the Maivin using the hostname collected above. Type this into your browser to bring up the Maivin WebApp Demo. NOTE: some browsers may need to append ".local" to the hostname, so instead of typing "http://verdin-imx8mp-07011770/" into the browser, you would have to enter "http://verdin-imx8mp-07011770.local/".
While the Maivin's hostname should serve all the needs to connect to the device over a network (via HTTP or SSH, for example), to get the IP address, all you have to do is ping the hostname:
In the above picture, the IP address for our Maivin is 10.10.41.64.
