Note: Installing Google Play on your Amazon Fire device will require a number of steps as laid out in the linked article above. There are step by step instructions but the process is a bit tricky / complex. We recommend reaching out to ALsupport if you require additional help.
Step 2: Install the American Pool Check-In App
Open up the Google Play Store and search for the American Pool Check-In App. Look for an application with the following icon. Click Install to download the application.
Step 3: Log in to Application
Once installed, open the application and sign in using your Admin credentials (the same credentials you use to access the Admin Dashboard). You should then see your specific Property Information.
Step 4: Setup Space
Select the specific Space where you will be displaying the Check-In Tablet. This will pull up a Welcome Page (see below). Click the box that says Check-In Here to confirm your application allows access to the device's camera.
Step 4: Setup Check in Display
Your table and application are now ready for check-in use. Position your tablet in a location where your residents can easily access it. Residents will simply scan their QR code using the application and this will check them into their reservation. The application will revert back to the Welcome screen after 5 seconds.
Follow these steps to set your Amazon Fire device to keep the screen on when the application is engaged.
