UID - Layout

This article introduces how to create a map for your site.

Note: Currently, only the UID Manager mobile app iOS version supports this feature.

Create an AR Floor Layout

1. On your iOS device, go to the UID Manager mobile app > Map on the Dashboard screen and tap the floor to create a map for it.

2. Tap Add Room to create a room. Fill in the room name and tap Next to proceed.

3. Point your phone camera down to the ground, then move it from the ground to the closest corner so that the phone can scan and recognize the ground.

    a. Aim the target point at the corner and tap Add Corner to start drawing a wall.

    b. Move your phone along the wall, tap Add Corner again to finish adding this wall.


    c. Tap Add Door to start drawing a door. Once complete, tap Confirm Adding Door to finish drawing the door and continue drawing the wall.


    d. Tap Complete to finishing drawing the room.

    e. Tap Done to connect the wall directly. At the same time, you can tap Detect Device after drawing the room map and tap Save to complete the drawing.

Note: You can also add devices to your layout later.


Edit Room

Tap to enter the floor screen to view your rooms, then you can edit them in the following ways.

If your Layout has already been created, you can add more devices by following the instructions below:

1. Enter the room and tap Add Device.

2. Select the device you want to add in the room. If the site is bound with the device, it will automatically show on the Adopted device list. If the device hasn’t been bound with the site, select the device you want to add to the room in the Virtual element list.


3. Drag the device to the exact location in the room. You can perform the ChangeBindUndo, and Delete actions on your devices here.

4. Tap Save and Exit Room to complete.
