Ipads & Open Houses – How to Use an Ipad for Your Open House Sign-ins
If you are using an Ipad for your Open House Sign-ins, here is how to use it successfully at the Open House.
1st of All, you need a data or Internet connection. If your Ipad has built-in data service from a carrier such as Verizon, Sprint or any other then you are good to go. If not, check out our Data Connection Tips page for information on how you can get a data or Internet connection on your Ipad.
2nd of all we also highly recommend using an external keyboard for Ipads and other tablet devices. It makes the Open House Sign-in experience much easier and professional for your visitors. For information on using an external keyboard checkout our tips page here.
The 3rd item we would mention here is that you also need to have an Open House Wizard Account. If you do not have one, click here to purchase.
Ok you get all of that, now its time to talk about using your Ipad to run the Open House Sign-ins!
At the Open House, find a good spot to place and position your Ipad for convenient access by Visitors.
Open the Safari Browser, it should be on the main screen of your Ipad as shown in the picture.
Browse to the Open House Wizard website (www.OpenHouseWiz.com) and choose Login from the main screen. (Tip: You can bookmark this login page to make signing in faster next time) Login with your chosen username (chosen during purchase), your password and then click the ‘I’m not a robot checkbox’. You may be asked to verify items. This is just for security.
Next you will find your self at the ‘My Account’ Page. The top part of the page is where you can change settings such as your logo, the Welcome to the Open House text on the sign-in page and other items such as the background image.
Choose your desired Open House color scheme from the menu and your Open House Visitor Sign-in & Welcome Page will appear.
That’s It! Good Luck with the Open House!
You may notice that there are two gray buttons on the top left and bottom left of the screen. The Login / Logout button at top left will allow you to logout at the end of your open house, or it will also allow you to login to see your Account Page. This could be useful if you want to change something on the Open House Sign-In Page. You can change the color scheme, the Welcome text as well as the Logo or Image used on the Open House Sign-In Page from the Account Page.
