Setting up a Neat Bar – Step-by-Step guide

Packaging and Products:

You can buy Neat Bar with the controller. However, we suggest investing some extra bucks and purchasing the whole bundle. This bundle comes with two boxes that include Neat Bar and Neat Pad.

  • Neat Bar – The box that contains the Neat Bar also includes mounting hardware (a monitor mount, a universal mounting bracket, a wall mount, and a table-top mount) and a quick start guide. Furthermore, this box also includes power cables as well as HDMI cables.
  • Neat Pad – The second box contains the Neat Pad along with a PoE injector, a quick start guide, and a variety of international plugs. If you are want to use your device as a scheduling display, this box will also offer wall-mounting hardware.


Before setting up your Neat Bar, there are some prerequisites that you should know of, such as:

  • Both of your Neat devices, Neat Pad and Neat Bar, must be connected to the same subnet.
  • To set up your device, you must have a stable internet connection, whether Ethernet or WiFi.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can set up your Neat Bar with controller:

Power Up the Neat Pad

Neat Pad

While powering up the Neat Pad, you have two scenarios. If you have the PoE-enabled network, simply plug your Neat Pad into the Ethernet port to get power and network. However, if you don’t have PoE, you’ll need to use the PoE injector to power up your device.

A PoE injector comes with two interfaces: LAN interface and power interface. While the LAN interface offers the internet connection, the power interface power up your device. If you prefer WiFi, you don’t have to connect your Neat Pad with the LAN interface.

Power Up the Neat Bar

The next step is to power up the Neat Bar. For this step, you’ll need to connect your device to the TV screen and the AC power. For the TV screen, make sure you are connecting your HDMI cable to Neat Bar’s HDMI output 1.

Neat Bar also allows you to connect to the internet both wirelessly and through Ethernet. Keep in mind that if you are using WiFi, you have to disconnect the Ethernet cable. Otherwise, you won't be able to use the internet.

Once your Neat Bar powers up, follow the instructions on the screen and set your desired language.

Select the Desired Setup

Afterwards, you'll have three setup options. To set up your device, your Neat Bar should be connected with the Neat Pad through the same subnet. Plus, make sure your Neat Pad is paired with the Bar. To sync your Neat devices, you can click on the "set up the Neat Bar with the controller” option.

Select the remaining two options as desired if you want to use your Neat Pad as a scheduling display or a controller for a third-party Zoom room.

Pick Your Mounting Configuration

Next, you’ll have to select your mounting configuration. Neat Bar support three different mounting options:

  • Screen mounting
  • Wall mounting
  • Table mounting

You can pick an option according to your meeting room and preferences.

Connect Your Devices to the Internet

Neat Bar Connectivity

Select your Neat Bar

Select Your Neat Bar

The last step is to select your Neat Bar. For this step, your Neat devices should be connected to the internet as well as the screen display – preferably using the HDMI port 1. Once your TV screen detects the Neat Bar, it will show a unique serial number. Select that serial number, and you are good to go.

If you don't see the serial number, you have probably missed an important step, or your device is not connected with the correct port.

  • You might see multiple serial numbers if you are connecting your Neat Bar in your office.
  • Check the serial number on your device and pick that one.
  • Afterwards, click on "Continue."
  • Neat Pad and Neat Bar will pair with each other. Once they pair successfully, you'll hear a chime and see the green light on the display.

  • Next, you will need to make a little adjustment according to your meeting room to enjoy the maximum conferencing experience.
  • Neat Bar will ask for your permission to launch the Zoom Room. You can activate your Zoom Room by signing in with your Zoom account or entering your activation key.
