Contact Kiosk

Have needed a reliable system for gathering contact information at events. Having people sign up using paper and pencil is completely unreliable, and very time consuming to transcribe the names and emails.

  • Had one Samsung tablet that was not being used.
  • Purchased 3 Samsung Galaxy 5 Tab units for $110.
    • Lot of 3 Samsung Galaxy Tab SCH-I800 2GB, Wi-Fi + 3G (Verizon), 7in - Black _A5
    • Item price $109.99
  • Purchased lot of four USB Cables. $11.49
  • Purchased quad USB power supply from 12V. 22.50 (Frys) and 12V power receptacle (1.69)

  • Plan
    • Label each one of the tablets units to keep track of them. DONE.
      1. Silver Samsung SCH-1705 "Samsung Galaxy Tab 2"
        • This is already set up.

        • MAC Address: 38:16:D1:99:D1:EA
        • wiped data
        • Set up WIFI in setup, then had to do it again.
        • Screen timeout 2 minutes.
        • Settings: Manage Apps: Allow non-Marketplace Apps
          • This seems to upgrade to Play Store
          • Search for email Signup, it now finds it.
    • Initialize
      • Set up WIFI -- COGNISYS password
      • Sign in to Google
      • Set time and zone
      • Install email signup

  • NOTE: Display is not the same between unit 1 and 2,3,4 -- have to use smaller font in those units to avoid two-line labels.

Notes from first uses:

  • Some people don't know how to get started. You have to touch a field. Made a sign "Sign In here" and "Touch a field to start"
  • Styluses should be made available for people with big fingers who are not used to using a touch screen.
  • Need to block light reflected in. Must be in the shade or have light covers made over them
  • Some people don't have email addresses and they may not know what to do.
  • 83 contacts from March Against Monsanto 2015
