Getting started 🚀

Initial setup and powering On

1️⃣ Battery installation: With the device facing down, open the back cover from the bottom left corner. Insert the battery, with the gold connectors aligned at the top, and then charge your terminal using the provided cable and an outlet or optional ethernet dock.

2️⃣ Turning the terminal On: Press and hold the power button on the right side until the screen lights up. To wake or sleep the device, a brief press suffices. To turn it off, press and hold the button until the power-off option appears, then select it.


Connecting and configuring

1️⃣ Accessing Admin settings: Swipe right from the left edge of the screen to find and tap the settings button. Enter the admin PIN "07139" to manage Wi-Fi settings or generate a pairing code for device registration. Your battery status will also be displayed here.




2️⃣ Internet connectivity: Choose a Wi-Fi network under settings, ensuring it matches the network connected to your devices. 


Your Wi-Fi network must use WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal encryption and be password protected. The device does not support non-password-protected networks, enterprise networks, or IPV6 networks. 🔒
❗The Wi-Fi terminal and your PC (or mobile phone) must be connected to the same network. 


Linking to Amenitiz

1️⃣ In your Amenitiz dashboard navigate to the "AmenitizPay" tab and then to the "Terminals" one. Select "Connect terminal".


2️⃣ Use the generated pairing code from the terminal’s admin and enter it on the page that just opened on Amenitiz, then click on "Connect your terminal":

3️⃣ Save your settings, refresh your browser, and your terminal is set!

Once connected, the terminal is ready to process payments, which must be triggered from your Amenitiz reservations (check how to do it here). By following these detailed steps, you’re ensuring a smooth, secure, and efficient transaction experience for your guests. 🌈
