How is Vestaboard powered?
Vestaboard is powered by a standard 3-prong plug. It will pull about as much power as a standard LCD television and does not need to be on a separate circuit breaker.
How does Vestaboard display messages?
Vestaboard requires a WiFi network connected to the Internet in order to display messages.
First-time setup is performed using the Vestaboard app for iPhone and Android (coming soon). Setup consists of a few simple steps where you will create and/or link a Vestaboard account to your Vestaboard and connect it to your WiFi network.
Once your Vestaboard is connected, you will not need to re-connect it to WiFi unless you make changes to your router or Internet connection.
How many Vestaboards can I control at once?
You may connect multiple Vestaboards to one WiFi network. The Vestaboard app will allow you to connect and control an unlimited amount of Vestaboards, whether they are on one network or multiple networks.
Vestaboard displays messages automatically through channels you subscribe to or create for yourself. You can also send individual messages on-the-go. Vestaboard receives the message information via wi-fi, and flips the characters to the proper letters or numbers to show exactly what you want to see.
After performing initial setup from the Vestaboard app (coming soon), you will be able to control and display messages on your Vestaboard from anywhere in the world through the app, or from any web browser, such as Chrome.
How do I pick messages to send to my Vestaboard?
Vestaboard has room to display 161 characters, including letters, numbers, symbols, and colors. It's perfect for displaying 160 character tweets, news and weather updates, quotes, and whatever messages you want to share.
To display the message on the board, Vestaboard will process the text entry and smartly arrange it to look seamless on the board.
