When in Room Occupancy mode, a Portal Beam measures the number of people in a room. You'll complete this step at the Portal Beam install location using the Kio Gateway Installer app.
You'll be required to mount the Portal Beam to the ceiling and provide the ceiling height. Be sure to have the necessary equipment to measure and reach the ceiling.
Turn on the Portal Beam battery power. From its underside, move the battery switch towards the Reset button.
Portal Beam Traffic mode: requires an external power supply (battery power is for backup use only).
From your mobile device, open the Kio Gateway Installer app .
If you're not signed in: from the first screen, tap Skip > select cloud.kontakt.io > sign in with your Kio Cloud account credentials > tap I'm ready > tap Take me to my devices.
Tap Install Devices > tap Portal Beam > select the Portal Beam mode being deployed.
Room Occupancy: measures the number of people in a room.
Specific Seats (Seat-Level Occupancy): measures the count of workstation seats that are occupied and not occupied. Up to six stand-alone seats can be measured by a single Portal Beam.
Traffic (Footfall Traffic Counting): counts people traffic in floors, or entire buildings. When in Traffic Mode, a Portal Beam detects movement and counts people entering and exiting a space defined by its adjustable threshold line.
The app guides you step-by-step for the mode selected.
In summary, you will:
Scan its QR code or enter its MAC address/Unique ID, assign its Smart Location, apply Reconfiguration changes when prompted, complete the tests, mount and enter the ceiling height, capture an image to verify its field of view (FOV), and complete any additional guided steps.
From the Install Complete notification, tap Portal Beam and install the next Portal Beam.
After a Portal Beam is installed, the next step is to verify its real-time data is being sent to Kio Cloud. This data is viewable from its floor location in your Smart Location.
You can choose to complete this step at the time a Portal Beam install is complete or after all Portal Beams have been installed.
Sign in to Kio Cloud > select Smart Location > navigate to the floor. To display Portal Beams on the floor plan, select the filter icon .
