This is a major new release of Evoko Home and Evoko Liso primarily featuring a completely redesigned user interface along with some additional improvements.

In Evoko Home 2.0, we have polished the design, optimized the dynamics on the information shown at the Liso at different times, as well as introduced a new status light colour (Amber) that will be shown 10 minutes before a meeting is about to start. All to make the user experience even better!

Evoko Home 2.0 is also compatible with the Evoko Get A Room App for iOS/Android and the Evoko Overview Screen. The smartphone app will make room booking on the go even easier, adding the convenience to find and book an available meeting room from your smartphone. The Overview Screen is a way of using a larger screen to display either a room overview or a meeting overview for a building or floor to easily find your way to a meeting or find an available room.

Known issues

  • Restricted file upload: For security, uploading of files is now enabled from localhost only. To circumvent this restriction you would have to login to the Evoko Home server via RDP (Windows) or VNC and access the admin interface locally rather than accessing it via IP:Port.
  • If you are running Evoko Home on a Linux server without a GUI installed, you would need to log on to the server via SSH and run the appropriate command from this article.
  • We have introduced a Local Admin role for Evoko Home. The local admin is authorized to make changes only in local settings view for rooms assigned to him/her. The local admin will get a message which says something like "you are not authorized to access this resource..." when application starts and when switching between some views. This happens when local admin is not authorized to make any changes in the current view.
  • Compatibility issues with 1.x Liso firmware. Please make sure all devices are running the firmware version corresponding to the Evoko Home version in use.
  • [Windows] Old version of Evoko Home might remain on Disk after upgrading to 2.0.
  • TimeZone migration Issue.
  • When connecting a Liso to a Wifi network, the keyboard seem to be lacking the exclamation mark (!). It is there but looks like a pipe (|). The exclamation mark is located on shift+1.
  • When connecting a Liso to a wifi network, the Liso might say it failed. If you are certain you entered the password correctly, exit the wifi connection dialog by touching the X in the upper right corner and wait for a few seconds and you will see the Liso is connected to the wifi network.
