All tags used with Motus must first be registered before any data can be acquired from Motus stations.
With some exceptions, all tags purchased from Lotek or CTT are registered automatically to a Motus project upon shipment. This means you must provide the tag manufacturer with your Motus project ID when ordering your tags.
- 2.Create or join a project
- 3.Provide the manufacturer (CTT or Lotek) with your project ID when purchasing tags.
In some specific instances, it may be necessary for you to register your tags manually. Only do this if you have been instructed by Motus.
- 2.Register your tags: Instructions on registering tags can be found here. To register a tag, you need to make a short recording of its output using a funcubedongle attached to a PC. Tag Registration Kits can be purchased from Motus. Each kit includes a funcube, whip antenna, and tag activator. We strongly encourage you to test and register all tags immediately after receiving them to ensure they’re ready for deployment. Always check your Manage Tags page after registration to ensure they have all been uploaded correctly.
