With the introduction of ChronOS version 18.104.22.168 AND Fusion version 3.6.6, you can now remotely view and control Pro2 and MiniTrack controllers' batteries, ports, readers, and more in Fusion. This article will show you how to authorize your controllers on ChronoTrack's remote server and view their statuses in Fusion.
This feature is currently in BETA and the proper ChronOS and Fusion versions are not yet published on the Timer Portal. If you'd like to try out the new Remote View options, please contact Support for download links.
This process requires you to have an account on Timer Portal (secure.chronotrack.com).
- Open Fusion, and click the Controllers tab, then click the LOGIN button.
- If this is your first time logging into the Hub, use the Reset Password link at the bottom of the page and enter the email address you use to log into the Timer Portal (secure.chronotrack.com). Once you get the reset email and complete the reset, you'll be logged in.
The reset process will NOT change your Timer Portal password. It simply sets your password for the Hub.
Adding Controllers to the ChronoTrack Hub will allow you to view those controllers in the Remote display in Fusion. Controllers can only be associated to one user account at a time, so if you have multiple staff who need to use Remote View, it's a good idea to share a login. Controllers can be de-authorized and re-authorized on a different user account if necessary.
Get an Authorization Code (Pro2)
- Power on the controller(s) you want to add to Hub and connect them to the ChronoTrack Server (22.214.171.124). Once they're connected, tap the Remote Control button.
- Tap the Authorize button and wait for the the Auth Code to appear.
Get an Authorization Code (MiniTrack)
- Power on the controller(s) you want to add to Hub and connect them to the ChronoTrack Server (126.96.36.199). Once they're connected, go to Menu > 2 > 3 > 2 (Authorize)
- The screen should cycle from "Authorizing..." to "Connected" and then display a 6-character code after a few seconds.
Enter the Authorization Code on the Hub
- Once you've got your Authorization Code, go to https://hub.chronotrack.com/remotecontrol
- Click the ADD CONTROLLER button, then enter the code from the Controller in the window that appears, and click AUTHORIZE.
- Once the controller is authorized, it will appear on the Remote Control page of the Hub as shown here:
Your controller is now authorized on the ChronoTrack Remote server. Repeat the steps in the Authorizing Controllers on the Hub section for each controller you'd like to add to Remote View.
Using Remote Control
Back in Fusion, you can click and drag Controllers from the right panel into the center panel to begin using Remote Control on those Controllers. You can see the Power Source, Batteries, Immediate Mode status, Port Status, and Reader /Port Status and Temperature.
The Properties tab in the panel on the right allows you to edit the Controller's Event and Point names, adjust Reader power levels, set Auxiliary Transaction (A-Trans) values, and toggle Immediate Mode on or off. If you click the Alerts tab, you can view the errors from the controller.
If you have an Active Extension connected to the controller, you can also adjust the Channel and Loop ID.
Any changes to features shown in Remote View should be reflected in Fusion within no more than 5 seconds of the real-world change on the controller.
Please note that the Battery indicator shows the presence of batteries and which battery is currently in use, but not their charge level.
