Uploading Swings

The Admin App needs to have quality Wi-Fi or cellular connection for swing to go from the sensor, to the Admin App, and then from the Admin App up to the cloud where swings are stored can be accessed. The Admin App will do all the work, you just have to get it going. Last thing, you will need the appropriate login information.

How do you up load Off-Line Swings

  1. Where there is quality Wi-Fi or cellular connection, open the Blast Baseball Team Admin App.
  2. Login using the correct email and password (once you login the first time, credentials will be saved).
  3. Move sensors around so they can connect to the Admin App (tip: put all the sensors in a bag or container so they can all be moved at once).
  4. The sensors will process under the dashboard and you will be prompted when sensors are completed and ready for use or storage.
  • If all sensor do not pick up, Please move the sensor around again so they can connect.
  • Please shake sensor lightly to avoid false actions.

What  does the Admin App Dashboard upload colors mean

  • Green – Sensor is fully processed and ready to be passed out or stored for the next day.
  • Blue WITH the progress ring – Sensor is uploading swings to the device.
  • Blue WITHOUT the progress ring – Sensor is in the queue and is ready and waiting to upload.
  • Gray – Sensor belongs to that affiliate/team but is not currently connected to the Admin App. The sensor will not connect if it is not charged, has been stationary for more than 1 minute, or out of bluetooth range.

 

 

What are sensor Errors

When the Admin App encounters an sensor errors you can tap on either the sensor tile to discover the issues or you can tap on the ‘errors’ tab where you will find details on the error the sensor encountered.

Red – Indicates the sensor has encountered an error.
Errors can also be see under the ‘errors’ tab found at the top.

  • If a sensor tile is red, the app has still uploaded the swings stored on the sensor. The sensor is ready to be distributed to a player or stored. You can tap on the sensor tile to see the error and try to reprocess that sensor. You can also wait for the next day to re-sync.
