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.
See Useful Terms
Getting Assistance
Help information can be viewed on the Help menus in this software.
Additional assistance is available at the Product Support section of the Realityworks website at www.realityworks.com or
by calling 800.830.1416. Contact Product Support for all types of technical support such as operating assistance, assistance in analyzing simulation data, and arranging a repair.

Getting Started
Before Starting
Charge the Baby Battery Module
Before starting the first time, plug Baby into charger.
1. Connect the charging station or the single charger to a 120 VAC source.
2. Connect the charging station or the single charger to the power connection located on the Baby battery cover.
3. Baby is ready to connect to Control Center software.
4. Allow Baby to charge completely (up to 6 hours).
Hint! Control Center connects and communicates with Babies much faster while Babies are plugged
into a charger!
Install the Software
Before connecting the wireless communication adaptor to the host computer, make sure that Control Center software is
installed. See the RealCare® Control Center software CD readme.rtf file for additional information.
1. Place the software disk into the CD drive.
2. Open the readme.rtf file to view install instructions
3. Run Setup.exe to start the install Wizard.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install software.
Control Center Software
Multilingual Application
Control Center software can be used in several languages. The
software is installed and automatically displayed in the language that is
selected in your user Regional and Language Options settings on
your computer..
Simulation reports can also be printed in multiple languages, without
regard to which language you use for the software.
See Selecting the Report Language.
Connect the Wireless Communication Adaptor
Connect the wireless communication adaptor to an open USB port
before starting the Control Center software.
To remove communication device, unplug from computer.
Create a Database
XStick
In order to communicate with the Control Center and run simulations, each Baby must be added to the Control Center’s
Baby list. The first time the software is started, the database is empty. A database must be created by adding Babies to
the Baby list.
6
Add Babies to the Baby List
When the Control Center software starts, it displays the Main Screen. The Baby list shows all of the Babies in the Baby
database (also referred to as the Baby list).
When the Control Center software is run for the first time, the database is empty and Babies must be added. Additional
Babies can be added at any time.
The Baby list is empty when the
software is used for the first time.
1.Left-click [Add].
Open Add Baby Screen
1. On the main screen, left-click [Add].
2. The Add Baby screen displays. If there are no active
Babies in range, the list will be blank.
2. The Add Baby screen displays
and the Baby list is empty.
7
Activate Baby
1. Locate the small recessed button in the upper part of
Baby’s back.
1. Locate the recessed button.
2. Use a pointed object such as an unfolded paper clip to
push inward and HOLD the button for two chimes, then
release.
2. Press paper clip in and hold until
Baby chimes two times.
Do not use a ballpoint pen or pencil! Permanent damage
to the Baby exterior can result!
Paper clip
3. The yellow LED illuminates and stays on for three minutes. If yellow light turns
off, repeat step 2.
3. Yellow LED illuminates.
Add Babies to Baby List
1. Activate Baby and open the Add Baby screen.
2. The Baby ID appears in the Add Baby screen table in the left column.
3. Battery level will display. Red indicates a very low charge. Baby should be charged immediately. Green indicates an
adequate charge level.
4. RealCare Baby 3 will not have ethnicity or gender assigned. See Assigning Ethnicity and Assigning Gender for more
details.
5. A green check in the Comm (Communication) column indicates communication with the wireless communication
adaptor. A red crossed circle indicates that communication has been lost.
6. The Status column shows Pending. Baby’s yellow LED will remain illuminated.
7. After several seconds, Baby’s status on the Add Baby screen changes from Pending to Added and the check turns
green. The Baby now belongs to this Control Center software.
8. If a Baby is not added to the Baby list for some reason, the Comm icon changes to a red, crossed-circle and the Status changes to NOT Added. When this happens, the Baby requires re-activation.
9. Left-click the Back button to return to the Main Screen.

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 Report. 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.
2.Left-click Get Report.
1. Left-click the Baby check box.
