1 - Unbox all items checking them off on the packing slip to ensure you’ve received everything you’ll need to complete the installation. Note that there is a line item in the packing slip that called F&P, this shows the following information to be used later in the installation:
- Apple ID
- Apple ID Password
- Guided Access PIN - You'll need this to leave the ipad locked in kiosk mode
- WiFi Password - You’ll need this to connect to the Table Tracker WiFi created by the Airport Extreme router, if included in the order.
- Device Code - You'll need this to enable cloud reporting. See Cloud Reporting video. COMING SOON
2 - Connect the surge protector(s) to a wall outlet. We’ll use this to plug in our critical components. It is preferred that all powered devices are connected to a power surge protector and not directly into the outlet on the wall.
3 - Unpack Table Trackers and charging units.
A - Start charging Table Trackers so they will be ready later in the installation process. The trackers should be on charge for a minimum of 6 hours prior to commencing the full system testing at the end of the installation.
B - Stack no more than 15 trackers on a charging base.
C - Lights…… describe what you should see….
4 - In most cases, the Wifi Router is already configured and you just need to plug it in and wait for it to boot up. After the router is booted, Connect it to the internet if possible. For more information, see How to set up the Airport Extreme.
5 - Power the iPad on by pressing the power button on top. Once is booted up, connect it to the Table Tracker WiFi network. Then, launch the Table Tracker application. If you don’t already have the Table Tracker app, download it from the App store.
6 - Power the Gateway by plugging it into the surge protector. Make sure you use the power cord supplied with the Gateway and not the power supply for the Tracker Charger.
There should be minimal obstructions between the LRS Gateway and the areas where the Table Trackers will be used. You should also avoid placing the LRS Gateway on or near metal. There should also be at least 20 cm (8 inches) between the LRS Gateway and other wireless devices, such as the Wi-Fi router.
Allow 1 - 2 minutes for the Gateway to fully boot. Continuous fast flashing (approx. 1X/second) indicates the Gateway is booting up. However, it persists for more than two minutes, the Gateway may not be configured properly and could require remote updating. Sped-up rapid flashing (approx. 2X/second) indicates the Gateway is finishing starting up. Read more about gateway lights.
Connect the included Ethernet cable to the LRS Gateway and a LAN port on the Wi-Fi router. Be sure you are plugging into a LAN/device port on the Wi-Fi router and not the WAN/Internet port.
NOTICE: LRS includes a 7-foot cable. If you need a longer cable, you can use another cable. The cable should be a minimum Cat 5e STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cable. However, most network cables are UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) and should not be used.
7 - Keep the Repeaters aside for now. We’ll discuss how to connect them on a separate video.
