The standard radio base makes training control and operation much easier. It eliminates excessive fuss associated with the customization of laser tag equipment and laser tag kits when using a remote control. The availability of a Wi-Fi radio automatizes training control.
The Wi-Fi unit does not require to be bound to the host computer/laptop to control the station because now the operator can control the training with a tablet or an Android OS smartphone, following the training process and even participating in it.
Let’s take a closer look at the details that make this small yet very practical device worthy of your attention.
Operation and technical details
The first thing to note is that the Wi-Fi technology is used for a reason. Unlike the Bluetooth one, it offers a number of advantages crucial for laser tag gaming: stable connection, interference resilience, and good data transfer rate and communication range.
The Wi-Fi radio base is equipped with a 700 mA/h built-in battery, extending its performance up to 24 hours. The notebook itself can also power the base if you directly connect it via a USB port. Such a combined use of a smart-phone and notebook significantly increases the up time of the base when used in the field or other rugged conditions.
The base is designed to simultaneously control and configure as many as 200 laser tag kits within a distance of up to 100 meters, while the range may be significantly increased using a retransmitter. Note that it is still possible to configure and control the equipment via the infrared port.
When using this device you can easily “Add X health points”, “Add X ammo”, manage the “Pause/Unpause” commands, “Toggle fire power”, “Rapid fire”, “Medkit”, etc., and you can adjust the volume of messages and sound effects, customize or replace the preset sounds. You may also upgrade or replace the laser tag kit software and see the detailed game statistics and events online.
The high efficiency of the radio base contributes to the ease and convenience of the operation. This is exactly what we had in mind when developing it. All you need to do to get a training control station on your phone, is to install our software, switch the base on, and connect to it. The application interface is simple and intuitive. Yet, if operator has any questions, there are tooltips and a built-in user manual to guide him through the process.
All these benefits offered by this Wi-Fi radio base make it a reliable and highly efficient tool for using during the tactical trainings.
