This article covers syncing RF (radio frequency) pads to an RF receiver. IR (infra-red) pads do not need to be synced.
The RF clickers are rechargeable, have white circular buttons, and the receiver is thumb-drive style, like this:
Why do I need to "sync" pads?
RF (radio-frequency) pads can transmit through walls, so your receiver may hear pads from nearby classrooms. Each pad transmits an ID and your receiver needs to know which pads are in your set.
Sets are shipped from ALL In Learning with the pads and receiver synced already, but if you buy add-on pads, replace a pad or receiver, or mix pads from different sets, you can use the AIR Tools utility to sync pads to your receiver.
How to Sync RF Pads to your RF Receiver
- Plugin your RF receiver.
- Log into your ALL In Learning account.
- Click the Settings icon at the upper right of your account, and choose "AIR Tools" (stands for 'ALL In Response' Tools).
- Follow the on-screen prompts to add any pads to your receiver that are not matched to it.
NOTE: There is a bug in version 1.0.9 of the ALL In Learning Browser Plugin for Windows which prevents the adding of pads to an RF system. The plugin download will be fixed in the near future, but until then, support can provide a version of the plugin that can be manually installed and allows the pad to be added.
