· Estimated Maximum Number of Remotes-the number of remotes that will
be in use for presentation. Class/group sizes vary, so it's best to enter the
highest estimated amount of remotes rather than accommodating each
class/group.
· Enable Backlight-activates the back light on the Q5RF participant and Q5RF
Instructor Remotes.
· Fixed Set-select this mode if you are K-12 or Corporate setting. Fixed Set is
where the remotes are assigned with an internal number (assigning fixed
numbers) where logging in by ID is not mandatory.
· Roaming Set or Participant Owned-check this option if the participants own
the remotes. This mode is best-suited for Higher Ed/University settings.
Participants are required to either enter a Session ID or Participant ID to join a
presentation.

Click the Remotes menu.
Enter an estimated number of remotes that will be used.
Depending on the setting, select Fixed Set or Roaming Set/Participant Owned.
Click OK.
What is a Session ID?
When using RF Remotes for the first time, the remotes may ask for a Session ID. Each host
has a unique six-digit Session ID. Session IDs "assign" the remote to the host, allowing the
remote to only communicate with that specific host.
The Session IDs can be found:
· For both HID and RF Host, the Session ID can be found in the Remote Assignments
window, the Login tab in the Presentation Setup window, and the Login tab during
Qwizdom Connect 2010
9
Qwizdom Connect User Guide
a presentation in the Qwizdom Toolbar.
· For the HID (Black) Host, click Qwizdom Tools, found in the lower right hand
corner of the Windows Taskbar (next to the clock). The Session ID will be displayed
at the top of the menu.
· For the RF (Red) Host, the Session ID can be found on the bottom of the device on
a white sticker.
You can also create your own Session ID in the Presentation Setup window. Creating your
own Session ID does not change the host's default Session ID. The Session ID must be unique
because if there are other hosts in the same building, the remotes will become confused
about the host with which they are to communicate.
Assigning Fixed Numbers
Assigning fixed numbers assigns the remote ID (e.g. remote #1, remote #2, etc.). The file that
contains the remote assignments is saved onto the computer, not on the remotes. You
only have to assign fixed numbers once, unless you change computers or hosts.
1. Be sure the host is properly installed before proceeding (see Hardware Setup for
details).
2. Go to the Remotes menu. The Configuration Settings window appears.
3. Enter the estimated number of remotes that will be in use.
4. Select Fixed Set.
5. Click Assign. The Remote Assignment window opens.
6. Click the Host drop-down menu and select the COM number (of the host) you will
be using. The Session ID will automatically appear in the Session ID field.
7. Click Start.
8. Turn on the remotes and enter the Session ID. When the remotes communicate
with the host, the number of the remote (with a remote image) appears in the
window. The Remote ID will also appear on the remote.
If remotes have been labeled with numbers, turn on remotes in sequence. Be
sure to wait until the remote has connected to
host before turning on the next remote.
9. After all the remotes have been assigned, click Stop.
10. Click OK to save and exit the Remote Assignment window.
11. Click OK to save and exit the Configuration Settings window.
Changing Session IDs
If the RF remote or Tablet displays No Net, Not Found, Not Active, or Inactive, it could be that
the Session ID is not correct.
· For Q2RF remotes: wait for the remote to time out and turn off. When you turn it
back on, press the Help key. When you see --S on the display, it is prompting you for
Qwizdom Connect 2010

the Session ID. Enter it and press the Join key to confirm.
· For Q4RF remotes: press the Menu key, use the right arrow to scroll to Sess. ID., and
press the Send (double arrows) key to select the option. You will see the current
Session ID and will be asked if you want to change the Session ID. Press T (Yes) to
change. Enter the Session ID and press the Send key to send.
· For Q5RF remotes: wait for the remote to display No Net, Not Active, or Not Found.
Press the Menu key and select Enter Session ID. Using the Send (double arrows) key or
the circle key on the thumb pad, enter the Session ID and press the Send key.
· For Q6RF remotes: press the Menu key, scroll to Enter Session ID, press the
Menu
Select key, reenter the Session ID, and press the Search Again key.
· For Q7 Tablet: press the Menu key and use the Scroll button to scroll to Enter Session
ID. Press the Enter key to select, use the A button to delete the Session ID and then
reenter the Session ID. Press the Enter key to confirm.

Remote Setup
Follow the steps below to set up remotes. Be sure the HID or RF host* is properly installed
before proceeding.
v.938 host or higher is required for Qwizdom Connect. If the host is not v.938 host or higher, please contact
Technical Support.
· Estimated Maximum Number of Remotes-the number of remotes that will
be in use for presentation. Class/group sizes vary, so it's best to enter the
highest estimated amount of remotes rather than accommodating each
class/group.
· Enable Backlight-activates the back light on the Q5RF Participant and Q5RF

Instructor Remotes.
· Fixed Set-select this mode if you are K-12 or Corporate setting. Fixed Set is
where the remotes are assigned with an internal number (assigning fixed
numbers) where logging in by ID is not mandatory.
· Roaming Set or Participant Owned-check this option if the participants own
the remotes. This mode is best-suited for Higher Ed/University settings.
Participants are required to either enter a Session ID or Participant ID to join a
presentation.
Click the Remotes menu.
Enter an estimated number of remotes that will be used.
Depending on the setting, select Fixed Set or Roaming Set/Participant Owned.
Click OK.
What is a Session ID?
When using RF Remotes for the first time, the remotes may ask for a Session ID. Each host
has a unique six-digit Session ID. Session IDs "assign" the remote to the host, allowing the
remote to only communicate with that specific host.
The Session IDs can be found:
· For both HID and RF Host, the Session ID can be found in the Remote Assignments
window, the Login tab in the Presentation Setup window, and the Login tab during
a presentation in the Qwizdom Toolbar.
· For the HID Host, click Qwizdom Tools, found in the lower right hand corner of the
Windows Taskbar (next to the clock). The Session ID will be displayed at the top of
the menu.
· For the RF Host, the Session ID can be found on the bottom of the device on a
white sticker.
You can also create your own Session ID in the Presentation Setup window. Creating your
own Session ID does not change the host's default Session ID. The Session ID must be unique
because if there are other hosts in the same building, the remotes will become confused
about the host with which they are to communicate.
Assigning Fixed Numbers
Assigning fixed numbers assigns the remote ID (e.g. remote #1, remote #2, etc.). The file that
contains the remote assignments is saved onto the computer, not on the remotes. You
only have to assign fixed numbers once, unless you change computers or hosts.
1. Be sure the RF host is properly installed before proceeding (v.938 host or higher is
required for Qwizdom Connect. If the host is not v.938 host or higher, please
contact Technical Support).
2. Go to the Remotes menu. The Configuration Settings window appears.

If remotes have been labeled with numbers, turn on remotes in sequence. Be
sure to wait until the remote has connected to
host before turning on the next remote.
9. After all the remotes have been assigned, click Stop.
10. Click OK to save and exit the Remote Assignment window.
11. Click OK to save and exit the Configuration Settings window.
Changing Session IDs
If the RF remote or Tablet displays No Net, Not Found, Not Active, or Inactive, it could be that
the Session ID is not correct.
· For Q2RF remotes: wait for the remote to time out and turn off. When you turn it
back on, press the Help key. When you see --S on the display, it is prompting you for
the Session ID. Enter it and press the Send key to confirm.
· For Q4RF remotes: press the Menu key, use the right arrow to scroll to Sess. ID., and
press the Send (double arrows) key to select the option. You will see the current
Session ID and will be asked if you want to change the Session ID. Press T (Yes) to
change. Enter the Session ID and press the Send (double arrows) key to send.
· For Q5RF remotes: wait for the remote to display No Net, Not Active, or Not Found.
Press the Menu key and select Enter Session ID using the Send (double arrows) key or
the circle key on the thumb pad. Enter the Session ID and press the Send (double
arrows) key.
