BEAM Trackr PRO – PWA Mobile App

The PWA (Progressive Web App) is downloaded and installed by visiting the BEAM Trackr PRO platform on your phone’s browser. This is different from a “Native” app which requires you to visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Installing and using the BEAM Trackr PRO PWA onto your mobile device is much faster and gives much better performance than accessing the platform using your mobile’s browser. This is because PWAs integrate more deeply with your device and use data caching techniques to increase performance.

Installing the BEAM Trackr PRO App

Please note that process may differ slightly between devices, but is basically similar to that shown below on both Android and iPhone.

In your phone’s browser, visit the tracking platform at https://trackr.beamonboard.com and log into your account.

On Android devices you will be asked if you want to add BEAMtrackr to the phone’s Home screen, as shown in the above image. Doing so will install the app.

or

If you are using an iPhone/iOS device, or the the prompt didn’t happen automatically, then go to to the Settings (usually three dots in the top right of the browser window.

Select Install app (may also say Add to Home Screen).

With either method, you will then be ask if you want to install the app.

Once you have installed the app, it will appear on your phone’s apps screen, along with your other phone apps.

When you click on the app icon on your phone, BEAM Trackr PRO will now launch like a normal app, rather than having to launch a browser.

If you want to install the app later, then you can do so at another time by clicking the INSTALL PWA button in the BEAM Trackr menu, as shown below.

Why not a Native app?

Native apps which you download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store are costly to develop and maintain, and can take time to get approved and released by the stores. This cost would ultimately have to be passed onto you, the user in the form of increased subscriptions.

Modern PWAs such as ours, on the other hand, can be developed along side the desktop Web app, and with a small amount of additional development, can be made to function like a traditional app on a smartphone. The only real difference is the process used to install them, as they use the built-in functionality of the device’s web browser.

PWAs offer much more compatibility and are updated instantly as we release more functionality in the app. The also take up much less space on your device than native apps.

BEAM Trackr PRO – Mobile Apps

GPS Tracking Platform on mobile app and web app

As well as a fully-featured Web app, BEAM Trackr PRO also has mobile apps available so that you can track and manage your assets on the go:

Progressive Web App (PWA) for Mobile – to manage and monitor your assets, just like the desktop Web app.

GPS Monitor Plus – a free generic mobile app that you and your customers can use to track your assets.

The market in the goods is such that the specification, description and price of individual goods can change.

The invitation to you to order goods from us is not an offer by us to sell to you goods of the specification and description at the price indicated.

Your order is an offer to us to buy the goods of the specification and description at the price indicated.

Wherever possible we will accept your order to buy the goods of the specification and description at the price indicated by e-mail and in which case there will be a concluded agreement between you and us.

Wherever it is not possible to accept your order to buy the goods of the specification and description at the price indicated we will advise you by e-mail and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the e-mail and will state the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.

You should note that our carrier requires immediate notice to be given of any loss or damage to goods and you should inspect the goods upon receipt and report any loss or damage to the carrier immediately.

Insofar as you report any transit damage to goods to us within 48 hours of delivery we will refund the price and carriage or replace the goods at no cost to you.

In respect of any transit damage to goods reported to us after 48 hours of delivery we shall require proof from you that the goods were damaged before receipt by you.

Part II

a) Payment and price

We shall not be bound to deliver the goods until you have paid for them.  Payment shall be due when the agreement is made between us.  Time for payment shall be of the essence.

The price due from you is the price indicated as inclusive of value added tax.

We will try to deliver the goods to you within the time estimated for delivery.

  • we shall inform you by e-mail;
  • we shall make a further offer to you by e-mail to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the e-mail and will state the period for which the offer or the price remains valid;

  • you are responsible for the cost of returning the goods to us at the address given above;

We shall not be liable for any other loss or damage whatever arising from such cancellation.

Your right of cancellation is in addition to your other statutory rights.
 
The after sales service and guarantees and the voluntary code for the return of goods by you to us mentioned below do not affect your statutory rights.
 
f) Guarantees and after sales service
We guarantee that the goods will correspond with the stated description and specification.
 
We guarantee that the goods will be of satisfactory quality when delivered by our carrier.
 
We operate a voluntary code which appears below for the return of goods which have failed to meet your expectations.
 
Subject to you complying with the voluntary code for the return of goods we guarantee that the goods will remain of satisfactory quality in normal use for 3 months following delivery and will refund the cost of the goods or credit the cost of the goods or replace the goods in accordance with timescale for return of the goods set out in the voluntary code.
 
The terms of any manufacturer’s guarantee and after sales service will be included within the documents accompanying the goods.
 
We are willing to provide advice to you in accordance with the conditions below.
 
g) Advice given by us to you
We are always prepared to offer advice about the goods including advice about installation, compatibility, configuration, and product upgrades.
 
We know the general purpose for which you require our goods and we will take reasonable care when giving you any advice.
 
Without knowing the particular application for which you require our goods and the exact specification and configuration of any existing system into which you intend to install our goods we cannot and do not warrant the suitability of any of our goods for your particular purpose.
 
We do offer a service whereby we will install our goods into your existing environment.  If you ask us to do that, we can warrant the suitability of the goods installed by us.
 
h) Your responsibilities
It is your responsibility to ensure compatibility of any goods offered for sale by us both with the existing components within your environment and with any other goods offered for sale by us.
 
It is your responsibility to ensure proper installation of our goods into your existing environment.
 
It is your responsibility to ensure that wherever necessary you access the manufacturer’s web site to download any necessary product upgrades (including drivers and manuals). 
 

Voluntary Code for the return of goods by you to us

This code only applies as between you and us if you are a consumer.  This code is intended to promote good relations between you and us.  The code is entirely voluntary and does not affect your statutory rights.
 
Important
In individual circumstances the provisions of the voluntary code may be more or less favourable to you than your statutory rights. You are free to withdraw from the operation of the code at any time and pursue your statutory rights. If you are in any doubt about your statutory rights you may wish to consult a solicitor or your local citizens’ advice bureau.
 
The Code
We recognise that goods supplied by us to you may not meet your expectations.  In our experience there are many reasons why that may happen.  Examples of those reasons include a defect in the goods at the point of delivery to you, incompatibility with existing components within your environment, poor installation or simply slower performance than you require.
 
We are not able to establish why the goods have failed to meet your expectations without an opportunity of inspecting and testing the goods.
 
In any case where the goods fail to meet your expectations we invite you to return them to us with an explanation of the problem.
 
In any case where we agree that the problem has arisen because of a defect in the goods at the point of delivery to you: we will refund the cost of the goods to you if returned within 28 days of the date of delivery; in any other case we will replace the goods or provide you with a credit for the cost of the goods.
 
In every case where you return goods upon the basis that there was a defect in the goods at the point of delivery to you we will inspect and test the goods.
 
Insofar as it may be established that there was no defect in the goods at the point of delivery to you, we reserve the right to charge you a flat fee of £50 as a contribution towards the cost of inspecting and testing the goods.
 
In any case where it is established that there was no defect in the goods at the point of delivery to you:
  • we will nonetheless try to assist you in resolving the problem;
  • depending upon the age and condition of the goods, we may be prepared to accept the return of the goods subject to a restocking charge and refund or credit the balance of the costs of the goods;
  • insofar as the age or condition of the goods is such that we are unable to accept their return, we will redeliver the goods to you. You agree to pay to us the reasonable cost of re-delivering the goods to you. 

Part III

a) Conditions applicable
These conditions shall apply to all contracts for the sale of goods by us to you to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions including any terms or conditions which you may purport to apply under any purchase order, confirmation of order or similar document.
 
All orders for goods shall be deemed to be an offer by you to purchase goods pursuant to these conditions.
 
Acceptance of delivery of the goods shall be deemed conclusive evidence of your acceptance of these conditions.
 
Any variation to these Conditions (including any special terms and conditions agreed between you and us) shall be inapplicable unless agreed in writing by us.
 
These terms represent the entire agreement between you and us.
 
b) Price and payment
The price (unless otherwise expressly stated) shall be exclusive of value added tax which shall be due at the rate ruling on the date of our invoice.
 
Where the price is expressed to be inclusive of value added tax we have the right to adjust the price at any time before delivery to take account of any increase in value added tax.
 
Where payment terms have been agreed, payment of the price and value added tax shall be due within 30 days of the date of the date of the invoice.  Time for payment shall be of the essence.
 
Interest on overdue invoices shall accrue from the date when payment becomes due from day to day until the date of payment at a rate of 8% above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time in force and shall accrue at such a rate after as well as before any judgement.
 
If you fail to make any payment on the due date then without prejudice to any of our other rights we may: 
  • suspend or cancel deliveries of any articles due to you;

HOW TO – Change the Wi-Fi Settings (xSeries)

It’s unlikely that you want use the default factory Wi-Fi settings that came with your unit, so this article shows you how to change them.

NOTE: If you have already run the Setup Wizard previously and/or followed the Quick Start Guide then it’s likely you would have already set them up, but you can use this article if you want change them again.


Login to the Device

To change the settings, you will need to login to the device’s Admin Panel. If you don’t know how to do this, please read the article HOW TO – Access the BeamOS Admin Panel (xSeries) first.

Once you have logged into the unit and are on the Status Overview page, you will need to navigate to the Wireless Configuration page.

Wireless Configuration

To go to the Wireless Configuration page, click the Network drop-down menu in the top menu bar, and then select Wireless.

On a new device, you will see the factory default wireless network. You can choose to change these settings, or you can add a new wireless network for your public users. This is the recommended set-up as this keeps the default network secure and unchanged for your use only.

Add a New Wireless Network

Click the Add button – this will show the Wireless Access Point page.

  • Check the Enable wireless option.
  • Enter your new Wi-Fi name in the SSID field.

Click on the Wireless Security tab in the Interface Configuration section, select the Encryption option and set your Wi-Fi password in the Key field. We recommend selecting WPA2-PSK encryption as shown below.

Then click the Save button to add the new network (or update the existing network ).

NOTE: You may be temporarily disconnected from the Wireless network and may need to reconnect before being taken back to the Overview page.

Edit an Existing Network

To edit an existing network, simply click Edit and follow the steps as in the Add Network section above as necessary.

NOTE: Do not Remove the network that you are currently connected to, otherwise you may not be able to gain access to the device without performing a factory reset.

HOW TO – Access the BeamOS Admin Panel (xSeries)

BEAM xSeries devices have a comprehensive Web-based Admin Panel (WebUI) to allow you set-up or change the configuration of virtually any aspect of your device.

This article assumes that you have already set up your device previously by following the steps in the Quick Start Guide that came with your unit. If you haven’t, then please read the Quick Start Guide for your particular device. The guide shows you how to connect to and set-up your device for the first time.

To access the Admin Panel you will need to connect to the device, either via the Wireless Network or by connecting your computer to one of the devices LAN ports using a network cable.

Login to the Device

To enter the router’s Web interface (WebUI), type http://192.168.42.1 into the URL field of your Internet browser. Note that if you have previously changed the IP address of the router, then use that address instead.

When the Login page has loaded, login with the username admin and the password that was originally set when you first set-up the device. (The factory default is admin01).

Beam X-Series Login Page

Once you have logged in, you should be presented with the System Overview page and you can configure your device as required.

If you have never logged in before, then you will be required to change the default password, and you will be taken through the Setup Wizard.
