During this step, you'll set up your Smart Location to mirror your organization's facilities - from the campus, buildings, and the floors and rooms of the buildings.
When you're installing each Portal Beam (Step 3), you'll assign the Portal Beams to their exact install location within your Smart Location, which is required to ensure location, occupancy, and tracking accuracy.
Complete this step in the following order:
A campus is a collection of buildings. Many organizations are different - you may have just one or many campuses. For example, your organization may have facilities located in different cities, you'll then create a campus for each geographic location. Or maybe you have multiple buildings that are unique to their business services, you may then choose to have a campus for each business service location.
Regardless of your organization's facility structure, deploying a Kontakt.io solution requires a single campus with a minimum of one building.
If you have more than one campus, complete this step for each campus.
From your Kio Cloud Launchpad, select Smart Location.
From the upper-right corner, select ADD CAMPUS.
Enter the below campus information > when complete, select Save.
Address: where the campus is located
Name: unique name of the campus
Description: for information purposes only
Campus image: (optional) click + to upload a file
Buildings are located within a campus and you may have one or multiple buildings in a single campus. Complete this step for each campus building.
Select ADD BUILDING.
Enter the following building information > when complete, select Save.
Address: where the building is located (by default set to the campus address)
Name: unique name of the building
Description: for information purposes only
Building image (optional): click + to upload a file
After buildings are added, you are now ready to add the building floors.
Complete the following steps for each floor in the building.
A floor plan image file (sometimes called an indoor map) is required for each building floor.
JPG, PNG, BMP, and TIFF files are supported. The file size cannot be larger than 800 kB.
Select ADD FLOOR or add first floor here.
Enter the following floor information.
Level: what building level the floor is located on
Name: unique name of the floor
Floor Plan: select + to upload the floor plan file
You’ll now set the floor plan's one-time Reference Point and Floor Outline. This ensures the floor plan is scaled correctly.
Once saved, the below setup settings cannot be changed.
From the list of floors, select the floor you created in the above step.
Select Start Floor Configuration.
Select SET POINTS.
Set POINT A by clicking on the first reference point on the floor plan (purple X appears) > set POINT B by clicking on the second reference point > enter the distance between the two reference points > select NEXT.
Set the Floor Outline: select DRAW FLOOR OUTLINE.
Select either the rectangle or polygon tool > hold down your mouse pointer over the start point and release > then drag the points to outline the floor plan (green line appears around the floor outline).
From the Floor Plan, verify the system calculated floor width and length measurements are accurate.
When complete, from the upper-right corner select SAVE AND CONTINUE.
After you've added all the floors, you can now add the rooms located on each floor.
When in Traffic mode, a Portal Beam counts people entering and exiting a space. A Portal Beam is installed at each entrance or interior space and people are counted as they pass through the Portal Beam's invisible threshold line.
Unique to a Portal Beam that will be set to Traffic mode, you'll add Rooms, create Spaces, and assign Traffic Portal Beams to the room installation locations. A single Beam can be used to measure traffic for one space (room) or for adjacent spaces (rooms) by defining more than one Space for it.
If your deployment includes IR beaconing location services for the entire floor, all floor locations must be added.
Complete the below steps for each Portal Beam in Traffic mode that will be deployed within a floor.
From Room outlines > select the type of room you're adding.
Room: select if the room location has four interior walls.
Virtual Room: select if the location is an open area with no walls. May also be referred to as an open space.
Corridor: select if the location is a corridor. May also be referred to as a hallway.
Enter a Name: uniquely identifies the room or corridor.
Room Number: unique numerical value to identify the room, virtual room, or corridor for room-level location accuracy and tracking.

Reference Beacon (Anchor Beacon):
You'll now add the rooms, which is dependent the Portal Beam is measuring traffic for one space (room) or two spaces (an inbound and outbound room).
One room traffic: if the Portal Beam is only measuring people entering and exiting one room, you'll create the room where the Portal Beam is installed in (inbound room).
Two room traffic (adjacent spaces): if the Portal Beam is measuring the Traffic between two rooms, you'll create two rooms. One room where the Portal Beam is installed (inbound room) and the room which people are exiting into (outbound room).
Select a drawing tool > from the floor plan, draw the room > select SAVE.
Select the Spaces tab. Again, how a Space is created is dependent if you're measuring the Traffic in one room or between two rooms.
For one room traffic: select Create Space > give the space a Name > select the Space > from the left menu, select the Room and add it to the Space > select SAVE. The room should be listed within the Space.
For two room traffic (adjacent spaces): create two Spaces and assign each room to a Space. Select Create Space > give the space a Name > select the Space > from the left menu, select one of the Rooms and add it to the Space > select SAVE. Repeat this step for the second room.
Now, you'll assign a Traffic Portal Beam to the room install location. During installation, the unique Portal Beam is re-assigned to the room.
Select the Devices tab. Again, this step is dependent if you're measuring one room traffic or for two room traffic.
For one room traffic: select Assign Traffic Portal Beam > select the room where the Portal Beam will be installed > from the Add Inbound Space, select the Space that's being measured >select SAVE. The Outbound Space is not assigned.
For two room traffic (adjacent spaces): select Assign Traffic Portal Beam > select the room where the Portal Beam will be installed > from the Add Inbound Space, select the Space where the Portal Beam is installed > from the Add Outbound Space, select the second Space being measured > select SAVE. The Portal Beam will measure both the inbound and outbound traffic between the two Spaces assigned rooms.
When all Room, Spaces, and Devices are set up, select FINISH CONFIGURATION.
