Thanks Brooke and Herb! Thanks for being our alpha client.
We hope this is the beginning of a great advertising network.
We believe a free wifi network at each sign will enable us to capture contact info and track user analytics. See the sketch below.
Check out “Remote Mouse.” I don’t know if this is the app, but something like it. I’m in contact with a developer to build our own.
Connect to the “Guest” WiFi, capture contact info as a precursor to supplying the app for the viewers’ mobile phone. Upon remote mouse connect, flip the sign into “Smart Sign” mode – vis-a-vis a locked-in screen for browsing the property map. Upon disconnect restore to dumb sign mode.
As the network grows, the design will maintain a consistent network spec (access credentials and hotspot name) across sign locations so that users need only launch the app to use signs.

Working now to understand: how to get viewers to become users.
- provide qr code – link to download mobile app.
- onscreen instructions to connect to wifi (we’ll use minimally secured “guest” networks.)
- a promotion to accompany providing contact info, via text.
