How to Configure Sensor Pro as a Remote GPS for WiFi Scanner 1.4
Note: Prior to using these programs make sure that both devices are connected to the same access point and that the access point allows client-to-client broadcast message communications.
WiFi Scanner 1.4 has been released on the Mac OS X App Store. The WiFi Scanner 1.4 has a “Listener” feature, which allows the WiFi Scanner 1.4 to “listen” to signals that are sent from a device running Sensor Pro iOS app. Sensor Pro is currently available on the App Store for iOS devices. These two devices work synchronously together, with the iOS mobile device, sending data to the WiFi Scanner 1.4 for every GPS update on the iOS device.
This tutorial will help explain how to set up WiFi Scanner and Sensor Pro to work together.
First, open up WiFi Scanner 1.4 and select the “Listener” Tab.
Then select the “Browse” button, in order to select a folder where you would like to save the log.
After you select a folder for your Log file to be saved, go over to your iOS device and open Sensor Pro.
Go to your “Settings” tab in Sensor Pro and make sure that at the very least that the “GPS” is switched on. The other options can be on as well, but the data is transmitted to the WiFi Scanner through the GPS.
Scroll down the settings and make sure that the UDP Broadcast is turned on and that the “Broadcast Port” matches the “Listener Port” on the WiFi Scanner
Then you can go back to the “Record” Section in Sensor Pro.
Now we have to go back to the WiFi Scanner 1.4 and tell the scanner to start listening for signals from the Sensor Pro
Now go back to Sensor Pro and click the “Start” button and you will start seeing the information from the Sensor Pro being sent and logged in the WiFi Scanner.
The data for the WiFi Scanner is displayed as such: Date, Time, MAC Address, SSID of router, Signal Strength, Latitude, Longitude.
This is how you run WiFi Scanner 1.4 and Sensor Pro in order to use the mobile iOS devices as the broadcaster and the Mac OS X machine as the Listener for GPS data.
