ADD NEW TENTACLE
If you open the Setup App for the first time, the device list will be empty. You can add new SYNC E devices by tapping on + Add New Tentacle. This will show a list of available Tentacles nearby. Select the one, you would like to add to the list. Hold your Tentacle close to your phone to finish the procedure. "SUCCESS!" will appear when the SYNC E is added. This ensures that only you have access to your Tentacles and not someone else nearby. You can now add all of your Tentacles to that list as well. Once a SYNC E is added to the list, it will appear automatically in the device list, the next time the app is opened.
Tentacle Sync devices can be linked to up to ten mobile devices at the same time. If you link it to the 11th mobile device, the first (or oldest) one will be dropped and can no longer access to this device. In this case you will need to add it again.
Once your devices have been added to the list, you can check the most important status information of each unit at a glance:
- Monitor the timecode with frame accuracy
- battery status
- output level
- frame rate
- Bluetooth range
- name and icon
If a Tentacle is out of Bluetooth range for a less than a minute, the status and timecode of it will be maintained. If the app hasn’t received any updates for more than 1 minute, the message will be "Last seen x minutes ago".
Depending on the physical distance of a TEntacle device to your mobile device, the unit information in the list will be highlighted. The closer the SYNC E gets to your mobile device the more saturated the color will be.
REMOVE TENTACLE FROM THE DEVICE LIST
You can remove a device from the list by swiping to the left (iOS) or long-pressing (more than 2 sec.) on the device's status information (Android).
