+What wall charger do I need for the LWR-1020 receiver?

Listen Technologies recommends the following charger for the LWR-1020:  LA-424 2-Port USB-C Charger. The LWR-1020 Wi-Fi Audio Receiver can be charged using any standard 15W Type C wall charger (sold separately). The LWR-1020 does include a 39" USB Type C charging cable (reversible) which can simply be plugged into your charger and the LWR-1020 receiver for fast and easy charging.

+Can the content on the LWR-1020 receiver be customized?

Yes, the content can be customized using the Listen EVERYWHERE app. The app theme colors, welcome ad video, sliding banners, channel images, and logos can all be customized using our free Cloud Services tool, same as the Listen EVERYWHERE mobile apps from the App Stores. However, this device does not support offers, PDF documents, or external URLs.

+What's the difference between the LWR-1020 receiver and a standard smartphone?

The LWR-1020 Wi-Fi Audio Receiver is a reconditioned smartphone that has been specially configured for use as a Wi-Fi audio receiver for local audio streaming, with no other device services or applications being available. When you turn on the device, the only available application is the Listen EVERYWHERE app.

+If guests’ smartphones can be used as receivers, do I still need to provide receivers to be ADA compliant?

Yes, to comply with the ADA, a certain number of receivers and neck loops must be made available to guests. Use our Accessibility Calculator to find the number of receivers and neck loops required based on the fixed seating capacity of your facility.

+Can Wi-Fi be used in place of RF/IR?

Yes, Wi-Fi can be used as an ADA-compliant solution without a radio frequency or infrared system. It's important to note that ADA compliance also requires the venue to have the correct number of receivers and neck loops (based on the fixed seating capacity) on hand with proper signage.

+With the Wi-Fi solution with 2-16 channels, how do you select the right channel? Does the app allow that?

Yes, users select the correct channel in the app.

+Can the Wi-Fi solution live on an existing building network, or does it require specific access points?

The Listen EVERYWHERE server is designed to be integrated into an existing network and be plug and play. The Listen EVERYWHERE system can be used on a stand-alone network as well. Depending on the application, it may be helpful to consult with an IT/Network Administrator for initial setup. Check out the Network Guide for Listen EVERYWHERE and Wireless Access Point Optimization for Listen EVERYWHERE tech notes for additional information.

+If you have the Wi-Fi solution in place, does that reduce the required number of receivers or loops?

No, the ADA still specifies the number of receivers and neck loops required per fixed seating capacity.

+Will guests be able to access the Internet, other apps, and services on the device?

No. This device has been configured strictly as a dedicated device for local audio streaming via the Listen EVERYWHERE app. It has been locked down into a kiosk mode, prohibiting access to all other services and applications. Guests will not be able to access or install applications, play games, take pictures, browse the Internet, etc.

+How do I manage charging the receivers in bulk at my venue?

For venues that need to charge multiple receivers simultaneously, Listen Technologies recommends purchasing a multi-port charging station or tower such as those offered by Tripp-Lite and many other online vendors. We recommend selecting a charging station that supports USB Type C charging and provides more than enough device slots for the number of receivers at your venue.

+What is the warranty on the LWR-1020?

The warranty on the LWR-1020 is two years.
