Core Manager

Q-SYS Core Manager contains a set of tools for managing Q-SYS Core processors. Beginning with Q-SYS version 8.0, it replaces many of the configuration and management functions formerly found in Q-SYS Administrator and Q-SYS Configurator.

Accessing Q-SYS Core Manager

Q-SYS Core Manager is accessible from Q-SYS Designer or from a browser.

Note: If Access Control is enabled, a login username and password are required to log in to Q-SYS Core Manager. For more information, see Access Management > Users.

Q-SYS Core Manager Pages



Provides an overview of the health of the Q-SYS system, including a list of all devices in the running design and their statuses.

Event Log

View a list of logged Core events. Easily filter by severity, category, source, and date.

View and configure how the Q-SYS Core connects to the network.

Network > Date & Time

Adjust the Q-SYS Core's date, time, and time zone.

Network > Services

Disable unused network services on a per-network adapter level. See a summary of all enabled network services and protocols.

Network > SNMP

Configure SNMP access on the Q-SYS Core processor.

Network > Certificates

Download the Q-SYS log file (if requested by Q-SYS Support), change the Core 510i operation mode, and reboot the Q-SYS Core processor.


Register the Core with Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager and test your Core's ability to connect to the Reflect servers.

System Management

User Control Interfaces

Manage access to the UCIs contained in your design.

Telephony > Softphones

Configure Softphone global parameters and individual Softphone parameters.

Telephony > Contacts

Create Local and LDAP contact books for use by the Contact List component, which you can then use to feed dial strings into a Softphone.

Video > Cameras
