As you're getting ready to start deploying Portal Beams, we've put together the following checklist to guide you through what's needed for a successful deployment. After all steps are complete, you can consume occupancy and location data into your own web or mobile apps by integrating with our APIs and SDKs.
Before you begin, It's important that your Kontakt.io network infrastructure is deployed. This includes Portal Lights and/or integrated gateways (BLE-enable access points).
Create your Kio Cloud account. If you already have an account, that's all you need.
Add devices to your Kio Cloud account. You add devices by providing your Kontakt.io Order ID (one-time use ID).
Set up your Kio Cloud Smart Location.
From the Portal Beam install location, complete the final setup and installation step using the Kio Gateway Installer app.
During this step, you'll also update the Portal Beam to the latest firmware version. Performing firmware updates over-the-air using a Portal Light is coming soon.
From your Kio Cloud Smart Location, validate the Portal Beam data.
