Launching the App
With the unit powered on, press either the power button or home button to wake it from sleep mode. The first screen displayed when coming out of sleep mode is the Lock Screen. Swipe your finger up the screen from bottom to top to dismiss the lock screen. If the app is already running, it will be displayed as soon as the lock screen is gone. Otherwise, the home screen will be displayed. Tap the Outlaw icon (circled below) to launch the Desperado app.
Once the app launches, the first screen displayed is the pin pad. Tap the gear icon in the top left corner of the screen to go to the Config Screen.
On this page, we will set your organization's authentication credentials and connect to your WiFi network.
Let's start by connecting to your WiFi. Tapping the WiFi button will open the system Wi-Fi settings. Follow the onscreen prompts to connect to your facility's wireless access point. Once complete, return to the app using either the back button or the app icon on the home screen.
Credentials setup - (if not pre-configured)
Tap the text box labeled Org ID and enter your organization's ID value. This will be provided by Outlaw Technology. Repeat this for the Auth pin (also provided by Outlaw Technology). Click here for instruction on how to access your credentials.
When this step is complete, tap the Save button. The credentials will automatically be verified (if an internet connection is present). You will be alerted if they are invalid and can fix the mistake. If the credentials are good, you will be prompted to restart the app. Tap YES and wait a few seconds for the app to relaunch. Once the app has relaunched, you will be back at the pin pad.
With the WiFi connected, tap the Test Connection button. This will not only test for a good internet connection, but it will make sure the Org ID and Auth pin are correct. If this test fails for any reason, please review the Org ID, Auth pin, and WiFi settings for accuracy.
Once the Test Connection test passes, tap the Update button to check for software updates and install if available. The unit will automatically check for updates when it starts up, but since it wasn't connected to the internet this first time, it was unable to, hence the need to manually check.
The software is now configured for your organization! Tap the Back button to return to the pin pad and move on to the Login and Main Menu tour...
