Sign Specifications and Network Configuration
Signs run an LTS version of the Ubuntu operating system. By default, the sign’s network settings are set through DHCP, although a static network configuration is available by request.

Sign Communication
All communication is performed over port 443 (HTTPS), and is initiated by the sign. By default, this outbound communication occurs every 60 seconds. For networks that restrict access to specific endpoints, it’s recommended to whitelist all subdomains of signcommand.com (*.signcommand.com). The specific service URLs currently in use are:

  • sign-service.signcommand.com
  • weather-service.signcommand.com
  • consumer-service.signcommand.com

Signs on the SignCommand network do not require access to an organization’s internal network or direct communication with the machine accessing the client application. You may choose to isolate the sign from the network, or use another method of communication to the internet entirely.

Client Access
Control of the sign is achieved through a web browser over a secure connection to the SignCommand servers. For more information, see our Requirements page. For client use on the network, access to the following URLs is required:

  • my.signcommand.com
  • www.signcommand.com
