Base Station Software
Base Station software is required to configure the Wi-Fi communications module and is available as a free download. Base Station will recognize the module and allow you to select a network and set the password for that network.
The Wi-Fi Communications Module must be configured in order to connect to your network using the Wi-Fi Configuration Kit (Zigmo). The Wi-Fi Configuration Kit consists of a small black board with 3 LEDs. The module may have to be removed from the board and plugged into the ZIGMO as shown. The ZIGMO will plug into the USB port of your computer for configuration and some USB drivers may need to be installed on your computer for machines older than Windows 7.
Wi-Fi communications will depend on the device you are controlling, as we sometimes use different software for different devices. Our software lets you choose between Network and COM communications. Since a Wi-Fi communications module is a network device, you will need to choose Network.
Here's what you will need to configure a Wi-Fi Module:
Base Station software is required to configure the Bluetooth communications module and is available as a free download. Base Station will recognize the module and allow you to select a network and set the password for that network.
Configuration is easy with the optional Bluetooth ZigMo Modem. Simply connect it to the USB port of your computer with the supplied cable. The Bluetooth ZigMo is available as an option when you purchase your Bluetooth controller. The ZBT module will pull off the board and can be installed in the ZigMo for configuration. You can then configure the baud rate and password settings if you require a secure wireless control. After configuration the ZBT module can be re-installed in your board and it's ready to pair with your device.
Here's what you will need to configure a Bluetooth Module:
The KFX Receiver Module is configured using Base Station Software (a free download), and must be plugged into the ZIGMO Configuration Board only during configuration. Only one ZIGMO is needed regardless of the number of KFX Receivers you intend to use. The ZIGMO acts as an interface between your computer and the KFX Receiver, allowing you to define the Baud Rate, and Data Bytes that are transmitted for each Key Fob button Press. The ZIGMO is included with the KFX Integration Kit and available at checkout. Key Fob Configuration
Configuring the Buttons
When configuring the button pushes you are really configuring the KFX module with the commands that will be sent to the board. When the module sees a button push it sends the command it has stored. You will configure what command is sent using Base Station Software a free download. It can be a simple toggle command or complex commands including delays. The KFX Receiver can be configured for button press and button release events.
This board is equipped with a KFX Module. The KFX communications module adds key fob capabilities to the board. The KFX module is powered from the board. The board itself will require 12 volts of power and can be hard wired or you can purchase a "wall wart" type Power Supply at checkout.
