Network Deployment

Note: This feature is part of the Door Tablet Enterprise server.

When you deploy Door Tablet AIO devices you may wish to use the hardware settings scripts provided by the platform. These scripts make it easy to deploy devices while insuring no errors are made. The settings you create will also be used to remotely change configurations, from the Tracking page.

To overall process is:

  1. Create Hardware Settings documents
  2. Copy the scripts generated by these documents to a USB stick
  3. Insert the stick to your Door Tablet AIO devices
  4. Execute the scripts - and you device is ready to be placed on the wall.
Note: As an alternative to using a USB you may use an http address, directly to the scripts.

Note: Please note that from version 8.4 you may also set Off Days in which the devices are set to be OFF for the whole day. This also require a firmware update.

Follow these steps to create Hardware Settings and Scripts
Open the dashboard:


Then click to create a new document:


Fill the form and mark the items you wish the script to update:

Please note that if you set a password the only way to remove it is from the device and using its interface - it cannot be done programmatically.

When you submit your record Door Tablet creates and store your instructions in an HTML which you will use on the Door Tablet AIO hardware.

Prepare to use your scripts
To use the scripts you have two options:
  1. Save files on a USB stick and used thin in the Door Tablet AIO
  2. Use a URL you type in the AIO
Both methods offer identical features.


Using USB
You will need to copy two files to a USB stick, in an HTML folder:


Using URL
The URL is provided to you by the above page. As your administrator will need to type this URL, you can use Site Substitution rules to dramatically shorten the default URL.
For example, the standard URL could be something like this:
http://host-address/doortablet/doors.nsf/hws/uk+devices
And a shorten one like this:
http://host-address/h/uk+devices


Using your scripts on Door Tablet AIOs
  1. Once you prepared your USB stick, power the device and open the front panel
  2. Insert the USB stick into one of the two Door Tablet AIO USB ports
  3. The device will prompt you, showing that your files are about to be transferred



Once the files have been copied, click on Play:


Implementing you Settings
Once you "Play" the settings, these will either be implemented automatically or by you pressing on a couple of buttons. For a manual use, the following will show:

Each and one of the settings you wanted to implement is then executed, and the results looks like this:


Notes:
  1. If the script has changed on the server but appears to have not been updated, tap on Refresh
  2. If your process likely to trigger APK updated or Firmware Update, tap on Reboot


Resetting the Content URL
When you use this scripting method the Content URL required by Door Tablet is overwritten. Use the second button to re-instate the string "com.door_tablet.doors/.DoorTablet". When you do so, the AIO presents the following:


Click OK, and the following shows - this is OK (so no panic). And if you have set a password, returning to Settings will require that you use the password.


At this point you can perform the following:
  1. Run the Door Tablet App - if already installed
  2. Reboot the device to ensure all parameters are active
If the app is not yet installed it will do so after reboot or if you visit the "Remote App Update URL" and click on "Set".


Pushing Configuration from the Web UI
From Version 8.2 you can push configuration to the Door Tablet AIO device, as follows:
1. Open the Tracking page
2. Select the device you wish to update (as many as you like)

3. Select the profile you wish to apply
4. Click on Apply Profile
