This section explains how to configure your Portal Beams. Make sure you have already configured the location, building and floor, if not please see: Smart Location section.

Configuration options

There are two options available for Portal Beam to be configured, you can either add Portal Beams to rooms using Kio Cloud or use the mobile application.

Kio Installer App

Kio Installer App allows you to add Portal Beams to the room easily. It's available for Google Android and Apple iOS. After you download it you need to log in with your Kio Cloud account, then click on the + icon and select Beam Setup. Click on the navy blue bar at the top of the screen to activate the QR reader and scan QR code that is printed on the back of Portal Beam


Make sure you scan the QR code before you mount Portal Beam on the ceiling.

After the QR code on the back of Portal Beam is scanned, the Installer Application can recognize a device and prompts you to choose a location that you would like to add Portal Beam to. Click on Choose location, select location, building and room.

Perform Portal Beam tests

After you choose a room for Portal Beam a summary page appears for you to confirm your choices. After you click Next series of tests needs to be done. The first test checks if the Installer App can connect to Portal Beam, after the connection is successful the Portal Beam LED will blink green. The next test checks if Portal Beam broadcasts the correct room number. For the last test, please stand under the Portal Beam for at least 20 seconds to allow Portal Beam to recognize you and update the occupancy counter. After this time you can tap on Test room occupancy.

If all tests were successful, Portal Beam is correctly added to a room. You can either choose Beam setup again to add the next Portal Beam or click on exit. You can always open Beam Setup again by clicking + button on Installer App.
