Connect to a device

There are two methods to select a device for Control to connect to:

My robots menu

This modal will be shown every time the app is launched or after logging in or out of the ZBOS Cloud platform.
tap my robots menu
robot connection modal

Tap the robot to connect to from the list.

The fields for the cloud-registered and virtual robots will be blank if the user isn’t logged in. Instead, a button 'Login or Create account' will be shown.

Cloud tab

  • If the user is an administrator, an additional md edit icon will be shown where the rights of the other registered users can be altered.

  • If the user isn’t an administrator, only the trash icon will be shown.

  • The currently connected robot will be shown with an connection green icon.

Virtual category

  • All registered robots are shown with the registration-number VR-<serial_number>.

Local

  • The list of locally connected robots is shown.

The list of local robots will only be updated if the connection succeeds.

For more information, see the chapter 'My Robots' in the menu.
