Range Operator & Cloud ID

Central to the Snap Shooter Challenge is the ShooterID system, ShooterID is used
to track the performance of competitors across the season and all shooters
competing in the league will be required to scan the same ShooterID into the
Commander app hosting every match.

For data to be collected from all sites, each site hosting a match will be required to
have enrolled in the ShooterID Cloud service. This connects each site to the central
ShooterID servers hosted by AttackSense and the league is then coordinated
centrally.

*Note*  Your site may use ShooterID cards or the app for shooters to scan in, but this
does not necessarily mean your system is connected to ShooterID Cloud! Keep
reading to learn how to check if your site is connected to ShooterID Cloud.
To host a match, you will need to register your intent to host the match on the
ShooterID portal, if you don’t have a login to the portal or don’t know what it is, this is
probably the best sign your site is not enrolled!


Checking if you are already enrolled
To check a Lane Commander is configured with a RangeID, from the home screen
press the menu icon and look at the bottom of the left hand menu. If you have a
cloud icon at the bottom right of the menu then the tablet is enrolled, if you don’t see
an icon then you aren’t enrolled.
You can also visit the App Setting page and under RangeID you should see the
same of the range the tablet is registered to, if you don’t see a RangeID then you
aren’t enrolled.

Enrolment in ShooterID Cloud is free and easy. To enrol visit
https://shooterid.attacksense.com and select the Operator Registration link.

Fill in your information in the enrolment form:

Note that your email address will become the login for the portal.
Your operation name and range name will be combined in information viewed by
customers, so you do not need to repeat your name in the range name.
It is also important to include the correct country name and location information as
well as the type of range ( which must be Airsoft for the Snap Shooter Challenge ).
You can also include contact details for customers to contact you from the


AttackSense Site Locator page.
Once you have filled in the form, press the Register Range button.

Please note that if you have multiple tablets for lanes, you need to register all of them to the same QR code you just created.

If you have multiple sites with AttackSense targets, these should be fully registered separately, starting from step 1.

Once enrolled, the portal will provide you with a RangeID QR code. On your
AttackSense Commander tablet you must scan the code in the App Settings menu
by pressing “scan RangeID” and scanning the QR code using the tablet’s camera.
When done, quit the app and re-open it, you should then see a cloud icon at the
bottom of the menu on the right.
If you do not see a cloud icon, you do not have a RangeID and no data will be
uploaded. Note the cloud icon may have a cross through it, this is fine so long as you
see a cloud icon.
*note* Only shoots performed after registering a RangeID with the tablet are
uploaded to the cloud, any shoots performed before scanning a RangeID code will
not be uploaded.

If you do not see a cloud icon, you do not have a RangeID and no data will be
uploaded. Note the cloud icon may have a cross through it, this is fine so long as you
see a cloud icon.
*note* Only shoots performed after registering a RangeID with the tablet are
uploaded to the cloud, any shoots performed before scanning a RangeID code will
not be uploaded.

Uploading data to ShooterID Cloud
Each round shot sends data to the cloud, and after every round in a match the match
is refreshed to the cloud also. If your AttackSense range is connected to the Internet
directly, this happens immediately after a round is shot.
If your AttackSense system is not directly connected to the Internet, the data is
stored locally and will be uploaded the next time the AttackSense Commander tablet
is connected to an active Internet connection.


To check the status of uploads, the main menu has a cloud icon to show the status of
a connection. A cloud with a tick on it shows that the system is cloud enabled and
there are no pending uploads. A cloud with a cross through it means there is no
active connection to the cloud service ( probably because the tablet can’t see the

Internet ) and a cloud with a cross through it and a number beside it shows the
number of records waiting to be uploaded.

Connecting AttackSense systems to the Internet
The easiest way to ensure data is synchronised to the cloud is to connect the
AttackSense system to the Internet. If your site has an active Internet connection
with a router this is quite easy.

To connect the AttackSense system to your Internet connection, you need:
● An AttackSense WiFi Expander ( black box with four RJ/45 network ports on
the side, or white box with two RJ/45 network ports underneath ).
● An existing Internet connection with spare RJ/45 network port.
● A Cat5 or Cat6 LAN cable.

The required Cat5 network cable can be purchased from a computer shop or through
Amazon and are available in many lengths, just measure how long the cable needs
to be to reach your router from the AttackSense WiFi expander and purchase a long
enough cable.
Once you have the cable, plug one end into a spare LAN port on your Router, then
plug the other end into the W or Wan port on the AttackSense WiFi Expander. If your
WiFI Expander ports are not labelled, this is the port nearest the power socket.
Once you have connected the WiFI Expander to your Internet connection, restart the
AttackSense Commander app and check the status of the cloud connection by
ensuring the Cloud Icon in the menu bar has a tick through it. Depending on how
many transactions are waiting, this could take several minutes.

Uploading data without an active Internet connection
If your site does not have an active Internet connection, you can still use cloud
services. Data is held locally until the AttackSense Commander tablet sees an
Internet connection where it is automatically uploaded.
During activity without an Internet connection, you should notice the cloud icon has a
cross through it and a number will increase next to it, this is the number of
transactions waiting to be uploaded.

Checking data in the cloud
To check whether data has been uploaded correctly, you can log into the ShooterID
portal at https://shooterid.attacksense.com .
Once logged in, you can check uploads by clicking “History” on the left hand menu.
In there you will see recent shoots, with the most recent shoot displayed first. Check
the date of the shoot to ensure that it is as recent as you expect.
