When you receive a Portal Beam order from Kontakt.io, it's time to deploy! Portal Beam deployment is unique - resulting in occupancy data and IR room-level location and tracking.
Complete the below steps to begin your Portal Beam journey with Kontakt.io and Cisco DNA Spaces.
Cisco DNA Spaced account is setup. Learn more from the Cisco DNA Spaces Setup Guide
This includes, controllers added and active, Access Points connected and added to Maps, IoT Manage Streams is enabled, and Access Points are synchronized.
For complete details and instructions, refer to the IoT Services Configuration Guide (Wireless).
Maps with floor images are setup. Learn more from the Detect and Locate Guide.
Active Kontakt.io Cloud subscription.
Kio Cloud app integration: Kontakt.io IoT devices (beacons) must be located at the same location where you are setting up the integration. This is to ensure Access Point information is received by Kio Cloud.
If you don’t have a Kio Cloud account, create one now. If you already have an account, go to Step 2.
Unique to Portal Beams, Kontakt.io orders are claimed from Kio Cloud rather than from Cisco DNA Spaces.
You'll need your Kontakt.io Order ID. You can find the Order ID on the Quick Start Guide card included in the order packaging and is also included in the order and shipment confirmation emails. Please do not add devices until you've received the order shipment.
This step activates the integration between your Cisco DNA Spaces and Kio Cloud account.
From your Cisco DNA Spaces account, go to the App Center.
From the left menu, select BLE to filter the apps > locate and select the Kontakt.io Kio Cloud app.
During this step, the Kontakt.io team integrates your Cisco DNA Spaces Maps with Kio Cloud Smart Location. This integration is required for occupancy data and IR room-level location and tracking accuracy.
To request this required integration, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your contact information, DNA Spaces account detail (admin account), and your Kio Cloud account email address. Our team will reach out to you to verify we have what's needed and begin the integration.
After Kontakt.io completes your Smart Location integration, you can then set up and install your Kontakt.io devices.
Setup and installation varies by the Portal Beam mode. You'll need to follow the steps for the mode being deployed.
