Note

Included with every Visionect development kit is 1 month of free server hosting. Claim it by using the server address you will receive when purchasing the kit. When the free period expires, you can set up your own server or decide to continue hosting with us. Contact support@visionect.com for more details.

  1. By clicking ‘Apply’, your device will connect.

Warning

Some devices might stop operating after being connected to the Visionect Configurator a while. Nothing is wrong with the device; it might have simply entered ‘soft sleep’. This is a power save mode meant to conserve power, which activates after 15 seconds of physical inactivity (as detected by the accelerometer).
