Use of mobile codes
Mobile codes provide Buildlink users access to information produced and saved in the system by service providers. This information is accessible with any mobile device. Using mobile codes is very user friendly - the user needs only to scan a mobile code with a mobile device to be redirected to the desired web service.
An Internet network connection, a camera and QR-reader is required for the optimal utilization of the codes. Buildlink services can also be accessed through a web browser, without QR-reader apps.
There are various QR reading programmes available in the apps store to enable the user to choose the preferred one. The optional reading programmes can be found by using the terms “QR” or “QR reader” for the chosen search engine.
Upon uploading a reading programme the user should start the programme and focus the camera of the mobile device used on a mobile code. In most reading programmes the scanning process starts automatically once the user has focussed the camera on a code in the right position.
Testing mobile devices before using Buildlink
It is wise to test the mobile devices a user intends to use for accessing Buildlink services before starting to use the services. The bitrate and settings of various devices may affect the functioning of the services. A QR reading programme should be installed also to enable utilizing mobile codes.
- Net connections fail to function (or are slow)
- Problems related to QR reading - there are various applications available, and it is worth finding out which one best serves the user’s needs
- General phone settings (e.g. how to load videos, saving information)
- Unfavourable conditions under which reading is conducted (low lighting, long distance)
