Meridian: Personnel Management Kiosk | Quick Start Guide

Meridian: Personnel Management Kiosk | Quick Start Guide

Welcome. In today's video we're going to go over a quick-start guide of the Personnel Management Kiosk. We'll be showing you how to change the password, connect to Wifi, change time zones, and add faces to the database.

Before we begin, I want to briefly go over the cable connections coming out of the bottom of the head unit. We have several relay connectors, two USB connections that are white and yellow, a direct line for the Ethernet, and a covered power button. Lastly, there is a DC barrel connector for power. To get started, you'll need a USB keyboard and mouse. I'll be using the combination keyboard / mouse that has a left, right, and middle button and a track ball to use as the cursor. Click the middle mouse button to bring up the application menu. It will prompt you for a password. The default password will be 123456. Then click "OK." Since we're going to be working out of the application for a few minutes, we're going to disable the application from automatically starting. In this sub-menu, we're going to click "application settings" with the left mouse key. This will bring up an expanded menu. Find "password settings" and click. First, it will ask for the virgin password; this is the default of 123456. For the purposes of this video, we're going to enter 1 as our new password in the field provided. Choose your own denomination. Once entered, click on "save." This will take you back to the previous menu.

In this menu, we're going to select "start-up settings." Next, we'll select "off" for all three options (Auto Start, Application Daemon, and Application Thread Daemon are what sets the application to automatically start upon startup or to start after 1 minute of being on the Android desktop). To exit out of the menus, click the right mouse button. We'll continue clicking the right mouse button until we're back on the application home screen. Clicking the right mouse button again will bring up a message that says "click back button again to exit the app." Press it again, and you will be met with a password prompt.

Here, enter in the password that you just changed and press enter. On the Android desktop, click on the gear icon in the bottom middle. This will bring up the settings menu similar to that on Android mobile devices. At the top is where you will find Wifi. Click on it and connect to your Wifi network, entering the password if prompted.

Pressing the right mouse button to go back, we're going to scroll down to find Date and Time. Toward the top, the Automatic Time Zone will be on by default. Let's turn it off. Moving toward the bottom, we'll click on "Select Time Zone." Scroll to find the appropriate time zone for your location and left click to select. With the settings in place, exit back to the Android desktop using the right mouse button. We're going to reopen the application by clicking the small up arrow toward the bottom middle above the gear icon. From here, click on MIPS. With the application rebooted, we're going to turn the AutoStart settings back to "on." Press the middle mouse button and then enter the password. Go to "start-up settings," and turn all three options to "on." Press the right mouse button to exit back to the main screen.

Next, we're going to go over adding faces to the Face Database. From the home screen, press the middle mouse button. From here, there are two ways to get to the Face Database for adding new entries. First, there is "Face Data Entry." Down at the bottom, there is "Face Database." This will show current users added in the database along with their name and id. In the top right, you'll see "Enter Face Information" which will take you to the previous screen. To add a user, have them walk up to the unit until a blue square appears around their face. Click "Collection" to snap a picture. Below the capture, there is an id field along with name and gender. For the id, we're going to just enter "0001" but choose your own entry. Then, enter the user's name. Note: if the on screen keyboard pops up, simply press the right mouse button once to dismiss it. We're going to confirm the gender of the user and then click save.

With the users entered, a picture of their face will now appear when they check in along with their temperature. The kiosk will no longer say "stranger" for that user. Thank you for watching this quick-start guide. We will have more information videos coming soon that will cover the remaining settings, options, and different configurations available.

Meridian: Personnel Management Kiosk | In-Depth Guide

Meridian Personnel Management Kiosk Service and Support Welcome, in this video we will be going over each of the individual settings and menu options on the personnel management kiosk. We’re picking up right where we left off in the Quick Start Guide. If you haven’t already, we recommend watching that video first. To continue setting up your personnel kiosk, press the middle mouse button to open the password prompt. Here we have Application Settings, Face Data Entry, Application information, Pass Record, and Face Database. There’s quite a bit of information under Application Settings, so let’s cover the others first. The Face Data Entry option is where users can be added to the Face Data Base. This is covered more in depth in the Quick Start Guide. Application Information. Here you can find useful information about your device such as the system firmware version, camera information, and the MAC address. Next is the Pass Record. This is where you can view the check-in history of the kiosk. You’ll be able to see the registered users who have checked in as well as the time and temperature upon check in. You can also set a search parameter for desired dates and times and then export this list to a connected USB device. Visitors and strangers will not be saved in the pass record unless the default changes are saved. This setting will be in the Applications Settings. The last item on the list is the Face Database. This is where you can view all of the registered users along with their name and picture. You can also remove registered users in this menu. Now, to cover Application Settings. Please note that while we will be covering the Application Settings, we will not be giving specific settings that should be applied. Running down the list at the top, we have the device name setting. By default, this will be the device MAC address. This can be renamed to your desired identifier such as Check-in 1, or West Entrance. Beneath the device name is the company name. This will display on the main screen at the bottom along with the name and MAC IP address. Click save to apply the settings. Next is body temperature settings. There are several options here that you can change. You can manage temperature reading upon check-in, compensation temperature, and alarm settings. The compensation temperature is an offset that can be applied to the temperature reading to account for the surrounding conditions. We recommend using another thermometer to accurately adjust the compensation setting. The next item is the alarm threshold. At this time, this can only be set in Celsius, but can be displayed in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The default setting is 37.3 degrees which is approximately 99.1 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the temperature that will trigger the alarm to activate if a user checks in whose temperature exceeds this threshold. The mask detection setting will enable the application to deny users access if they are not wearing a mask, even if they have a temperature that does not exceed the temperature threshold. While the alarm will not sound, the unit will flash red and politely ask the user to wear a mask. At the bottom of the list, we have a stranger mode and stranger record. Turning stranger mode to on will allow strangers to be granted access. Leaving this setting on off will deny them access even when all other criteria are met. Enabling stranger record will record the check-in time, temperature, and picture taken of the stranger upon check-in. There information will be saved under stranger record which was discussed earlier in the video. Once the desired settings are changed click on the save to apply the changes. If you wish to change something later, you can always go back and make the appropriate adjustments. The camera settings can also be configured to change the camera resolution on the home screen. By default, the unit is automatically set to restart at 3AM. This can be changed to any time within a 24-hour period or disabled if you prefer. Relay settings can be used to set up the unit to be used with locks, doors, lights and other options. Additional settings are available depending on whether or not you have a software subscription with Meridian. We hope this video has been helpful in setting up and configuring your Meridian personnel kiosk unit.
