Installing Connhex Edge

Clean up previous installations

If you're trying to re-configure a device in which Connhex Edge was previously installed, make sure you:

  • go to /opt/connhex/configs
  • remove agent.toml and agent.env. These are automatically created during the Connhex Edge configuration process.

Connhex Edge is distributed through a .deb package. You can download it from our registry using wget:


and install it with:

sudo dpkg -i connhex-edge-agent_2.0.0_linux_armv7.deb

You can run Connhex Edge with:

sudo /opt/connhex/bin/

There are multiple ways of configuring1 Connhex Edge: while they all have pros and cons, the final result is exactly the same.


This is the recommended way of configuring Connhex Edge in all cases except for high-throughput production processes - where you should consider interfacing through Connhex Provisioning APIs.

SnapLink comes as a wizard during the first execution of the agent: you can read more about it here.

Manual configuration

You can also configure Connhex Edge manually: the main advantage with respect to using SnapLink is you won't need to approve each association request through Connhex Control. You can read more about it here.
