General Information

This section contains information about the Control Center software program, how to start using the software with

RealCare

®

Babies, how to get assistance using the software, and a list of terms that are used by the software.

Control Center Software Help Guide

The RealCare

®

Control Center software is intended for wireless control of one or more RealCare

®

Baby II-plus and

RealCare

®

Baby 3 infant simulators (referred to as Babies in this guide). It manages parenting simulation programming, displays Baby status, and permits student report download and storage.

The Control Center software communicates only with RealCare

®

Baby II-plus and RealCare

®

Baby 3.

Program Functions

Control Center software contains all of the tools necessary to program Babies for infant care simulations, download student reports, and perform maintenance on Babies. The software assigns the class name, Baby name, student name,

Baby ethnicity and gender, start and stop times for the simulation, the simulation care level (easy, medium, or hard), and preset quiet times when Babies will not cry for care. The software also downloads and stores simulation reports in a database.

Selecting specific schedule numbers for each day of the simulation is a separate option from selecting an easy, medium, or hard mix of schedules for all days. To learn how to select an easy, medium, or hard mix of schedules, see the “Schedule Helper” section on the next page.

Specific schedule numbers or a care level must be selected for the simulation before it starts. There are 15 real infant schedules you can choose from, and they are ranked as easy, medium, or hard. A random mix is also available (see next page). The care level or specific schedule numbers are scheduled for five days. If the simulation lasts more than five days, the schedules will repeat from the beginning.

Generating Reports

Control Center software enables users to generate two types of reports:

1. Optional manual progress reports to monitor participants while the simulation is in progress.

2. Final reports automatically created for each participants at the end of the simulation.

The option below allows retrieval of simulation data from Baby while the simulation is still in progress.

Select Babies and Get Report

Make sure all Babies you want to Get Reports for are within communication range of the wireless communication adaptor.

If Babies are not within range, the command will time out after a few attempts.

1. On the Baby list, left-click all of the Baby check boxes you want a report for.

2. Left-click

Get Repor

t. The software and wireless communication adaptor will search for each checked Baby in the list, one at a time, and retrieve the simulation reports.

3. The Status column will change briefly to read

Get Report

and then

Report OK

if the command was successful, or

Report Fail

if the command failed.

The simulation report will be placed into the folder that Baby’s reports have been assigned to. Each new download of a report for that Baby during the same simulation will overwrite the old report automatically and store it in the same location.

When the simulation is over and Baby is brought within range of the computer, the software automatically retrieves the final simulation data and overwrites the older report.
