Physical Location: The LobbyGuard Versa measures 11”H x 9.6”W x 5.2”D. The location you wish to place the Versa should allow at least 4” of clearance on all sides. This space should be clear of direct heat sources such as HVAC vents, other computer hardware etc.
IMPORTANT: Do not position the Versa facing directly into a light source such as a bright light fixture or toward a window where direct sunlight is present. This will result in a shadow being cast over the Versa during visitor sign-in and will result in poor image quality for visitor photos. The Versa should be positioned to face away from light sources.
Hardware: If you ordered the optional single-spool visitor badge printer for your Versa the printer measures 5"H x 9.3" x 6"D. The location you wish to place the printer should allow at least 3" of clearance on all sides. The optional dual-spool visitor badge printer measures and 6"H x 8.0" x 7.5"D should be installed as per above.
Power: The Versa requires a single standard 110V power outlet and ships with a 20’ power cable. The optional visitor badge printer requires a single standard 110V power outlet and ships with a 5’ power cable. All components should be attached to the dedicated surge suppressor that is included with the LobbyGuard Versa to prevent electrical damage to your LobbyGuard product. Failure to use the surge suppressor will void the product warranty.
Data Connectivity: Your kiosk will be required to have a full-time connection to the internet for initial registration and daily use.
