FINDING THE OPTIMAL POSITION FOR YOUR SIGNAL LIVE HUB
Place the hub with an unobstructed view of the sky, ensuring the internet LED displays green.
Position the hub within 15m (50ft) of the registered Signal devices it is collecting data from.
You can check the connectivity of the hub to its nearby registered Signal devices through the online status page accessed by scanning the QR code on the hub and signing into your Converge account.
When the hub is booted up or turned on, it will be in SETUP mode. This means it will send updates to the platform frequently (approx every 30 seconds) so that you can see feedback on the online status page to help you optimise it’s position on site. Remember to refresh the online status page on your browser.
The hub will then be put into normal operating PROCESS mode. This means the hub will send updates to the platform every 20 minutes.
To get faster feedback on the platform, for example, if network connectivity is lost and/or the hub is relocated, restart the hub to put it into SETUP mode again.
Before using the Signal Live hub, it will need to be assigned to your job site. There are two ways in which this can be done.
