I have created a couple scripts to help with adding local favorites to the Lifesize Icon


Running these scripts will require Terminal (Mac), Cygwin (Win) or any another Linux environment.

(Instructions for setting up Cygwin can be found here: Remote Pairing for 220 Units with a script )


Please consider these scripts "as is".  Feel free to use them as a template for writing your own.  They are both using REST to connect to the Icon. If you have any questions please post them here and I am happy to help when possible.





The first script allows you to manually enter any favorite you would like to the directory.  When you run the script it will prompt for the Icon IP address, admin password, the new favorite display name and dial string.

The second script will add all of the Lifesize managed demo sites as favorites on the target Icon. 

(Demo sites listed here Lifesize Cloud Demo Sites - and how to use them)


To run this script you will need to include the Icon IP and password as command line options


Usage: demo_favorites.sh <icon_ipaddress> <admin_password>
