If you are setting up an original KidCheck PrintHub, instructions are found here.

Before setting up your KidCheck PrintHub, be sure to attach the Panda Wireless WiFi adapter to any USB port of the PrintHub.

Set up using one of five options:

  1. Set Up Using as an Access Point
  2. Configure the PrintHub from a browser using the IP Address
  3. Let the PrintHub Automatically Add Itself
  4. Add by a Manual Scan via go.kidcheck.com
  5. Set Up via Console App (via HDMI monitor / keyboard)

 

  1. Set Up Using as an Access Point

    1. Plug the PrintHub into power and wait for it to fully boot (wait for the LCD screen to say “Connecting…”).
    2. From a computer, iPad, smart phone, etc., connect to the “KidCheck PrintHub” WiFi network (the name may vary slightly).
    3. Open the KidCheck Configurator app (found in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store) OR open your browser and go to 10.0.0.1 as you would any website (you can alternatively use 172.16.32.64).
    4. Enter the configuration password if prompted (found in the PrintHub packaging).
    5. Select the WiFi section to add the PrintHub to the desired WiFi network (if you plan on running it on WiFi).

      Select the appropriate areas to connect your PrintHub to WiFi, register it to your account, etc.

    6. Select the Registration area and enter your KidCheck username/password to register the PrintHub to your organization.
    7. Your PrintHub is ready to use. (You can select the other areas to further configure it.)

     

  2. Configure the PrintHub from a browser using the IP Address

    1. Connect the PrintHub to an active Ethernet connection on your network. Plug the PrintHub in to power.
    2. Once the PrintHub fully boots up you’ll see an IP address displayed on its LCD screen (something like “192.168.202.172”).
    3. Put that IP address into the browser of a device on that same network and select “Enter” (as if it’s a website).
    4. Select the WiFi section to add the PrintHub to the desired WiFi network (if you plan on running it on WiFi).
    5. Select the Registration area and enter your KidCheck username/password to register the PrintHub to your organization.
    6. Your PrintHub is ready to use. (You can select the other areas to further configure it.)

     

  3. Let the PrintHub Automatically Add Itself (must have computers on that network running the KidCheck Client)

    1. If you have computers on the network (with Windows or Mac OS) running the KidCheck Client, connect the PrintHub to an active Ethernet connection.
    2. Wait 5 minutes.
    3. Check the KidCheck PrintHub area of System Settings within go.kidcheck.com. The PrintHub may automatically add itself to your organization.
    4. If the PrintHub is automatically added, you can select it and select the appropriate areas to add it to WiFi and further configure it.

      Once the PrintHub is added to your organization, you can further configure the KidCheck PrintHub area of Settings at go.kidcheck.com.

     

  4. Add by a Manual Scan via go.kidcheck.com

    1. Connect the PrintHub to an active Ethernet connection on your network.
    2. From another device on the same network, login to go.kidcheck.com and go to the KidCheck PrintHub area of Settings.
    3. Select “Add a New PrintHub” from the left (under Page Options).

      Add a PrintHub by selecting “Add a New PrintHub” and then scanning on the next page using your device’s IP address.

    4. If your device’s IP address automatically populates in the new window, select Start Scan to search for your PrintHub on that network. If the device’s IP isn’t automatically populated, look up the device’s IP, input it in the appropriate field, and select Start Scan.
    5. Name the found PrintHub, select a Campus, and select Save Discovered Printers.
    6. Close that tab. Refresh the KidCheck PrintHub area of System Options.
    7. Select your PrintHub and select the appropriate sub-tabs to add it to WiFi and further configure it.

    2. Plug the power into the PrintHub.
