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.
Complete the below steps for each location within the floor where a Portal Beam or other Kontakt.io stationary device (Portal Light, Anchor Beacon) will be installed.
If your deployment includes IR beaconing location services for the entire floor, all floor locations must be added.
A single Portal Beam can measure up to six seats.
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 seats are located in a corridor. May also be referred to as a hallway.
Enter a Name: identifies the location where the seats are located (room name).
Room Number: unique numerical value to identify the room, virtual room, or corridor for room-level location accuracy and tracking.

roomNumberand Device Management API property:
Reference Beacon (Anchor Beacon):
From Add Seats, select the number of seats > enter a Name/ID for each seat.
IMPORTANT: Take note of the room name and each seat Names/ID - you'll need this when installing the Portal Beam in this room.
From the floor plan, move each seat (green square) to its approximate location within the room > select SAVE.
TIP You may need to zoom in on the floor plan to move the seats, select the + icon.
When all rooms with seats are added > from the upper-right corner, select FINISH CONFIGURATION.
When all floors are set up, the Portal Beams are ready to be installed at their permanent locations (Step 3).
