If you have read about why our users might want to use the BKON Connect Configuration app and do choose to go ahead and use it, here are a few quick tips to get you up and running quickly. You should have already set up and added your BKON beacons to your PHY Platform account.
- After you download the BKON Connect Configuration app (iOS / Android), first you will need to sign into the app using your PHY Platform credentials.
This allows you to securely pair with your BKON beacons and uses our PHY Platform to check that the beacon is in your account and you are, in fact, the beacon owner.
- Once logged in, you will need to make sure that your beacon is in connectable mode. All of our BKON beacons ship in Eddystone-URL non-connectable mode for our users' safety so you will need to force the beacon into connectable mode. This is done by using the small screwdriver included with your BKON beacon and removing the four small screws and back plate. After removing the back plate, pop the batteries out and the re-install them which forces the beacon into connectable mode for 30 seconds.
The gif shows the user experience before and after power cycling a beacon which allows the user to pair with it.
Now that you have paired with your beacon, you are able to change various settings of the hardware but beware, changing some of the settings will affect how your PHY Platform functions. For more information about the fields available to edit, please see the BKON Connect Configuration app user guide.
