How ViewClix Works
Not only is ViewClix incredibly easy for seniors to enjoy, it's perfect for family members with on-the-go lifestyles that want to keep in touch more frequently.
The primary operating mode of a ViewClix frame is to display its Slideshow, sequencing through pictures that have been shared by family or friends. When a Video Call is received, the Slideshow is hidden during the call. After the call is ended, the Slideshow automatically starts displaying again.
The ViewClix Smart Frame is easy to set up and use -- there is no power switch. Beautiful high-definition pictures are displayed within a minute of plugging into a power outlet.
The ViewClix Smart Frame includes built in Wi-Fi for connecting to the Internet.
- Wi-Fi setup: The included remote control is used to select the network name (SSID) and enter the password.
- Locations without Wi-Fi: If Wi-Fi is not available, we recommend using a mobile data hotspot.
Hotspot devices and plans are available from most mobile service providers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc.).
After setup, the ViewClix Smart Frame is always connected ready for new pictures to be shared or video chat with family.
- Pictures are all stored ViewClix Cloud and storage is UNLIMITED.
- Whenever a new picture is shared, the ViewClix Smart Frame receives an instant notification to automatically download and display it.
To make the ViewClix Smart Frame an easy and fun experience for all, a family member or friend needs to do a small amount of organizing and administration.
- The Organizer can log in to the ViewClix Cloud with any web browser using a notebook or tablet.
- Examples of frame remote settings: how long each Slideshow picture is displayed, whether the ViewClix Smart Frame goes to "sleep" during late night hours or if the frame should auto-answer video calls.
- Upload initial pictures to the ViewClix Cloud
- Manage the picture Slideshow of the ViewClix Smart Frame including archiving and rearranging pictures.
