Connect a Footswitch¶
When working, it is always better to have your two hands available. Using Odoo’s IoT Box and a footswitch will allow it.
In fact, you will be able to go from one screen to another by using your foot and the footswitch. Really convenient, it can be configured in a few steps.
Connecting the footswitch to the IoT Box is easy, you just have to combine the two by cable.
In some cases, a serial to USB adapter may be needed.
If your footswitch is a supported one, there is no need to set up anything since it will be automatically detected when connected.
If it is not a supported one, you may need to restart the box and download your footswitch’s drivers from the box. To do so, go to the IoT Box Home Page and click on drivers list. Then, click on load drivers.
