Click PAIR touch to pair your device with the touch io reader. Follow the on-screen instructions and touch your smart device to the touch io reader.
NOTE: We have found a Bluetooth issue with Samsung Note 7 and Note 8 phones. It appears to be an incompatibility with their Bluetooth chipset in these devices.
Doors that have been paired with touch io display the touch logo.
Click the SETTINGS touch button to define settings for the reader.
The assigned device name is displayed.
Enable or disable Inside/Out technology for the touch io reader.
In most cases, between the ASK and FSK options, FSK is the option to select. FSK has several advantages over ASK since the carrier has a constant amplitude.
ASK- Amplitude-Shift Keying is a type of amplitude modulation that assigns bit values to discrete amplitude levels. The carrier signal is then modulated among the members of a set of discrete values to transmit information.
FSK- Frequency-Shift Keying is a method of transmitting digital signals and refers to a type of frequency modulation that assigns bit values to discrete frequency levels. FSK is divided into non-coherent and coherent forms.
Bluetooth Range determines whether the end user's mobile device must be physically presented to the touch io or if it can remain in the user’s pocket or purse and touch the reader with their hand. This is an important security consideration since it is advisable to set the range to be as short as possible.
For maximum security, it is advisable to have the reader’s Bluetooth signal reception strength set to the minimal level, requiring end-users to present their mobile device to the reader in order to request access.
Further / Closer-Set the distance at which your mobile device credential connects with and accepts the touch io reader. Use your finger to set the range Closer or Further. Move the stick figure to the right for closer detection. Move the stick figure to the left for further distance detection. The Bluetooth Range can vary from approximately 30 feet or more, down to about one inch. A closer setting is more secure and less prone to potential security risks. The distance at which the reader responds to the phone can vary by phone type so it may be necessary to play with this slider setting until you are satisfied with a setting that is acceptable and secure enough for you.
At an interior doorway where security may be less of a factor, Bluetooth reception strength may be adjusted to allow users to request access without having to present their mobile device to the reader. (This distance can vary from phone to phone.)
