Here’s how to use Sena's Smart Intercom Pairing feature to make pairing your R1 with your friends easier:
A QR code is required to pair your R1 to your friends. To create a QR code, pair your Bluetooth system to your iPhone or Android smartphone (please refer to the User's Guide for more details on pairing the R1 to your smartphone). Next, open the Sena Utility App on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
Next, tap on the "Smart Intercom Pairing" button. The app will create a QR code for your R1.
You will need to scan the QR code on your friend's smartphone to pair your R1 to your friend. Tap the "Add" button on the app to use your smartphone's camera to scan the QR code on your friend's smartphone.
When your friend's QR code has been scanned, tap the "Confirm" button to pair your R1 to your friend. Repeat these steps to pair your R1 to your other friends.
Select your friend's headset on the app for a guide on how to start and stop an intercom conversation with them.
Other Functions of Smart Intercom Pairing
Along with easily pairing your headset to your friends, Smart Intercom Pairing allows you to change the name of your friend’s headset for easy recognition, change the order of your friends on your list, and remove your friends from your list.
- Change Your Friend’s Name
Tap the pencil icon on the right side of the app to change the name of your friend’s headset and tap the “OK” button when finished.
- Change the Order of Your Friends
Tap the “Edit” button to make changes to your list. Next, tap on the name of your friend’s headset to select it. You can use the up and down arrows to move them one spot higher or lower or you can use the double up and down arrows to move them to the top or bottom of the list. Press the return arrow in the bottom left to save the changes to the order on your list.
- Remove a Friend
Tap the “Edit” button to make changes to your list. Next, tap on the name of your friend’s headset to select it. Next, tap the trash can icon in the bottom right of the app to remove your friend. Press the return arrow in the bottom left to save the changes to your list. Note: The app will update the list on your R1 but it will not be updated on your friend’s list which will cause an error message when your friend attempts to connect to your R1.
