How do I set up beacons for a sign-in station in the AccuCampus App?

Note: This is the last step in using a Beacon as a sign-in station. This step requires access to the AccuCampus App, which is available in both the Apple and Android app stores. To learn how to create a Beacon Profile (the first step), see How do I set up a beacon profile for a sign-in station in AccuCampus? To learn how to assign the Beacon Profile to a sign-in station (the second step), see How do I assign a beacon profile to a sign-in station in AccuCampus?

 
1. First open the AccuCampus app from your smartphone device. (Note: Make sure Bluetooth is turned on on your phone.)    





2. From the app home screen, tap on the tri-bar to expand the side menu. 





3. Scroll down to sign-station. Choose Beacons Setup.

  



Once Beacon setup has been accessed a list of nearby beacons will appear. Note: If no beacons appear, open the back of the beacon and make sure it is turned on – the blue light should be sustained and not blinking when you press the button.

4. Tap on the gear icon on the upper right side. 





5. Tap Assign Beacon Profile.

  
    

6. Select the beacon or beacons you wish to use and tap Done





7. Select the beacon profile you wish to assign.





8. Enter the beacon password and tap continue. A message will appear at the top confirming that the beacon was properly set. 



WARNING: If this is a brand new beacon, the password will be minew123. If the beacon has been used for another sign-in station, and that sign-in station beacon profile had a password, you will need to enter that password instead. Once a password is assigned to a beacon via a beacon profile, that becomes the new password for the beacon going forward.
