What you will need:

  • An iPod Touch with the latest version of ACME AC and the Socket mobile companion installed from the Catalog.
  • A fully charged socket scanner


Using ACME Access Control

  1. Ensure that your iPod does not currently have any socket scanners listed as connected or not connected in IOS Bluetooth settings. If so, select "forget this device."

  2. Run the Socket Companion setup assistant to configure your scanner for IOS App Mode, be sure to follow every step until the process is complete*.

  3. Open the ACME AC app and log in with your username and password.

    • Like POS, you will also need to enter your Tenant ID and a Terminal ID when logging in for the first time. Both fields are required and must be filled in to login. Once you have logged in, these settings will be saved unless the app is deleted.

    • Access Control Terminal IDs do not need to be pre-configured in Back Office and they can be any alphanumeric code. Once a terminal ID is entered for an Access Control device, whenever a ticket or pass is checked in, the device's terminal ID will be recorded for that location. Please note, when tickets are sold but not checked in, they will not have a Check In Terminal ID.

  4. When you receive a notification that the scanner is active you are ready to scan a ticket.

  5. Scan a ticket with the socket scanner and wait for a response in the iPod touch. The app will inform you if the ticket has been checked in or if there was a problem with the ticket.
