To start a trip, you will require a smartphone or tablet with the IOTile app and access to the Internet (wether via Wi-Fi or cellular data)
Mount POD-1M to your product, crate, or packaging
Log In to your IOTile account on your smartphone or tablet
Ensure Bluetooth on your smartphone is on
Select 'Sync Project'
Select 'Begin Scan'
Check ID on the POD-1M (eg. ends in 08ab)
Select the device with the same ID in the app
Can’t see the device?
Scan again (try a few times)
If it still doesn’t show up, shut off the app and restart it
The trip page will open up
Check that the ID on top of the page is the same as the POD-1M ID
Select the settings icon on the bottom right
Make sure the POD 1-M's settings are suited to your needs (eg. higher shock threshold, shorter wakeup intervals, etc.)
Select 'Start Trip'
IMPORTANT - Do this after mounting the sensor on the machine or the packaging. This ensures only the right data is captured (think of it like starting your voice message after the beep for the voicemail!)
Select the green 'Okay'
Add notes and a photo if needed. (eg. information about who is starting the trip and from where)
