This article will help you connect your Brother label printer to the Visitor Manager Central iPad terminal for badge printing.
First, we will assume you have connected your Brother label printer to your office wireless network, or you plan on using Bluetooth connection options. Visitor Manager Central supports the following Brother Label Printers.
Visitor Manager Central recommends you use the Brother QL-820NWB printer.
Ensure you have the correct printing labels, Visitor Manager Central only supports the Brother DK-11202 labels (as sold on our website and most IT stationary suppliers).
Please consult our hardware guides on connecting a Brother printer to your office wireless network.
(Applies to Brother QL-720NW, QL-810W and QL-820NWB only)
This guide will show you how to connect your Brother printer to a Visitor Manager Central terminal using a wireless or wired network. You will need to have your printer connected to the network and Visitor Manager Central iPad app installed.
1. For Wi-Fi printers select “Wi-Fi Printer” menu options.
For ethernet connection, the printer will normally pick up a DHCP IP address.
2. Launch the Visitor Manager Central App and login with your administrator username and password. (Please makes sure that you’ve updated to the latest app).
3. Click on ‘Settings’ at the bottom of the page.
3. At the top of the ‘Settings’ page, click on the ‘Printer’ text. The app will start searching for network connected printers, this may take a few moments so please wait.
Note: The iPad and the printer must be on the same network / subnet in order to be able to communicate.
If you see the following message pop up, then press ‘OK’.
4. If printers are found, then a list will be displayed. Select the the printer you wish to connect to.
If no printer is found (which sometime happens), you may see a message like the following:
If this is the case, then you may need to add the printer manually (this requires that you know the IP address of the printer). Click on the ‘Manual Setup’ button, enter the IP address of the Printer in the ‘IP Address’ field and press ‘Save’.
5. You will now see the printer that you selected listed in the ‘Printer’ field and the printers network IP address below this.
6. Under the ‘Printing Options’, you can run a ‘Print Test’. This will send a print test job from the Visitor Manager Central dashboard to the iPad and onto the printer if connected successfully.
7. Once you’ve connected to your printer, select your kiosk and do a test sign-in. As long as you have a ‘Print badge’ screen in your sign-in flow, then a badge should print.
