Customising how your Walker works via the ELEMENTICE™ Console
*Device settings and configuration can only be changed when the device is "online" meaning that it is turned on and connected to the Console... because if it's not online it won't be able to receive the instructions. Seems fair?
With your Walker turned on, open the ELEMENTICE™ Console and click on "Devices" tab on the top banner of the Console. When your Walker is connected to the Console, the yellow light on the Walker will be solid, and you'll be able to see your device on the list.
Click on the device you want to access and you will be taken to the Device page. On the Device page scroll down to find the Device Settings & Reader Settings.
Here you can configure...
Device Name is the title of the device in the Console e.g. Walker 10 or Sarah’s Walker.
Event dictates where the images taken on your device get sent. This MUST be configured BEFORE taking photos, otherwise images will get lost/orphaned. See here for how to create Events.
Shooting Modes let you decide whether you want to take the photo first, then scan IDs, or whether you'd like to scan IDs before taking photos. See here for more on Shooting Modes.
Tether Mode should always be set to ‘Continuous’ unless your camera is incompatible and you need to use ‘Sync on Scan’. Continuous Tether Mode means that you will get information as fast as possible. Sync on Scan makes our devices more backward compatible, but allows less live feedback during use. See here for more on Tether Modes.
Image Upload Method lets you select Wifi + Cellular, Wifi only or do not upload. Depending on how you work, you may want to change when/how the full-sized images are uploaded. Regardless of this setting, Walker will always try to upload tiny thumbnail images to the ELEMENTICE Console which will hold the place of the full-sized images until they are uploaded. See here for more on Image Upload Methods.
WiFi settings become configurable when WiFi is enabled under the WiFi Section. You can enter the Network Name and Network Password. If you turn off WiFi it won't forget the network details - they'll come back when you turn WiFi back on.
*If the WiFi network you want to use has captive portal restrictions turned on, you will need to contact the network owner to arrange special access.
See here for more on Enabling/Disabling WiFi.
Reader Settings section effects whichever Reader is paired to this Walker.
Display Orientation lets you choose ‘Normal’ or ‘Inverted’. Normal puts the top of the screen away from the buttons, while inverted flips the screen upside down. See here for more on Display Orientation.
Show Scan Success lets you decide whether a large tick is shown on the screen upon successful scan. ‘No’ means the main screen will remain visible as IDs are being scanned, while ‘Yes’ means the main screen will disappear briefly while a large tick is displayed each time a valid ID is scanned. See here for more on Show Scan Success.
You might also notice the Watermark menu heading. This allows you to set a watermark which is specific to this device. However, in almost all cases you will actually want to set your watermarks at the Event level (not device level), so we recommend leaving this empty for now. See here for more on Device Specific Watermarks and here for more on Event Branding and Watermarks.
Finally, the Notes sections lets you... you guessed it! Keep notes about this device.
