The device automatically switches to the mode in which it worked before turning off ("Medic" mode by default).

The following options are available for setting:

Setting Laserwar SmartKit

"Ammo count" means the number of packages that Smart Kit will have, that is, how many times it can send some preset command without a reboot, or how many times it can be used by players. This parameter is set in the range from 1 to 250. When Smart Kit works in "Medic" or "Ammunition" modes, its scale is initially filled, indicating that it has the maximum number of packages.

This scale will start to empty after taking the packages.

 

After a set number of packages ends, the player will see the purple light diode on the top of the Kit and the red diodes on the edges of the scale.

The next use of the device will be possible only after applying the "new game" command from the remote. This option can also be disabled. If it is disabled, players will have an unlimited number of packages.

"Shot counts to destroy one ammo" means the number of hits to destroy one package, that is how much you need to make shots to this Smart Kit in order to reduce the specified number of packages on 1 unit. Shooting should be made to the diode, located in the upper part of the body.

If a player hits it, then it lights up with white and beeps. The scale that displays the number of packages begin to empty. The parameter of shots is set in the range from 1 to 250. It can also be disabled.

"Key delay, sec" or button hold time is the time during which you should hold the red button for activating the Smart Kit. This parameter is set in the range from 1 to 240 seconds. It can also be disabled, in this case, the kit will be triggered immediately when the button is pressed.

"Auto send energy command period, sec". This time indicates the frequency of activation of the device in "Energy" mode. It means that after the preset time, this Smart Kit will send the selected command. The parameter is set in the range from 1 to 1800 seconds.

"Round time" means a period of time from the beginning of the game during which the device will be active. At the end of the preset time, the programmed number of packages will be automatically reset to zero (even if it was infinite), and the use of the Smart Kit will be impossible. You’ll need to restart it ("New Game" command from the remote control).

Changing settings on a game field without the Laser Tag configuration.

You can also make some settings without USB Base. But without this device, you can change only the type of game mode and packages limits.

1. To activate the mode selection menu, the game master should hold down the red button and instantaneously send the "New Game" command from a remote control device. The device will go into programming mode.

2. Game mode changing is made by pressing a red button and is accompanied by the changing of the diodes’ color depending on the selected mode ("Medic" - green; "Ammo" - yellow; "Energy" – red).

3. Selection of the game mode is confirmed by holding the button for 2 - 3 seconds.

4. After confirming game mode you'll hear a short beep, notifying about proceeding to the selection of packages number. You can select between two options:
Limited number of packages (the number of Smart Kit activations will depend on the preset number, by default - 10 packages). If you select a limited number of packages, you'll see red extreme diodes lighting on the device scale, unlimited package. In this case, the diodes on the scale will constantly change its color (green – yellow- red).

5. Hold the red button for 2 - 3 seconds to confirm your choice. After that, you'll hear 3 short beeps. It means that the device has been restarted and is ready to work.


If you selected "Medic" or "Ammunition" game modes with a limited number of packages, then the scale will be initially completely filled. While using packages or the Smart Kit, hitting this scale begins to empty. If an unlimited number of packages is selected, then after the game starts, the diodes will constantly "run", changing their color (green - yellow – red).

Also, if the Smart Kit is hit in "Medic" mode then it will light up with the color of the shooting team. In this case, the device will execute the commands only for the players of this team. Recapturing the device is impossible.

In "Energy" mode, (regardless of the number of selected packages), the scale will start to fill gradually. After reaching the maximum, it beeps, notifying that the device was activated. The status bar (the scale) will be reset and filling will start from the beginning. Clicking on the button during the filling of the status bar will have no effect. All parameters like scale filling time, the type of generated command, and the number of packages can be preset using the Laser Tag Configurator. By default,t the number of packages is - 10; scale filling period - 10 seconds; command - "anomaly."
