Set up a Wayfinder Kiosk

Your Administrator can set up SiQ Web app to be a Kiosk that employees can use to help them find employees and meeting rooms. See Using SiQ Web App as a Kiosk.

Note: All selections made on the Wayfinder will be cleared every 1.5 minutes so the next user will have a fresh screen when they use the kiosk.


Before you set up the Kiosk on a floor map make sure the following is complete:

  • Set up kiosks on a touch screen device will ensure the best visitor experience.
  • When meeting rooms are selected, their capacity and assets are displayed along with other information. Make sure the meeting rooms' assets are assigned, see Update Assets to Spaces and Meeting Rooms.

Set up the Kiosk

Follow these steps to set up the Wayfinder kiosk in SiQ:

Step 1. Set up the Kiosk Devices on the Floor Map

First navigate to the Floor Map [1], select the correct floor you are working on [2], then enter the Map Editor [3]:



If you are adding a new kiosk, you will need to complete the following:

Click the Add Space icon [1].

Click the Device icon [2] and drop it at the precise location on the map where the physical navigation screen is located [3].

When you have finished, press the Esc key to stop adding.



After placing the kiosk (or if you already have a device on your map). 

Click on the Kiosk icon [1] it to open the Data Drawer.

Note that if you just added a device, the default Device Type [2] may be a meeting room. From the Device Type drop-down select Kiosk [3].

Optionally, in the Name field, enter the kiosk's name [4] and take special note of the Kiosk Code [5] and degrees of rotation [6].


Any changes you make in the Data Drawer are saved automatically.


Step 2. Set up the Kiosk Codes and Authentication

On the physical kiosk or display itself, ensure internet connectivity, and navigate in a web browser to Here you will be presented with a prompt to enter a six digit Device Code:



This Device Code is found back in the Edit Mode of the Floor Map in SpaceIQ [1]. If this field code is blank, or you get an authentication error when entering the code, press the Renew button [2] to generate a new Code:


If successful, on your physical kiosk you should now see your floor map with a big red YOU ARE HERE circle. This is called the WayFinder app:



Repeat this setup process for each kiosk you have in your organization. Every kiosk or map display device will have its own unique placement on the Floor Map and each will need a separate kiosk code to show accurate location information.

Step 3. Set the Kiosk Map Rotation

One more critical setup step is map rotation. Depending on which direction your physical kiosk device is facing, you will want to rotate the map so that it is oriented in such a way that makes sense to visitors approaching the display.

Back in the SiQ Floor Map Edit Mode, click the kiosk device you want to manage [1] and scroll down in the data drawer on the right until you see Rotation [2]. Enter a number here between 0 and 360 degrees. As you can see in our example, we entered 135 degrees [3] so that employees approaching the kiosk from the main entryway would see the building floor plan aligned in front of them [4]. Also here are the options to present in Landscape or Portrait mode [5], and to Enable or Disable the kiosk display [6]. Remember, any changes made in this data drawer are saved automatically.
