LOG IN / SIGN UP
1. Download the SCOUTEE™ app from the App Store (iOS users) or Google Play (Android users). Make sure to download the right app for your planned activity (Baseball App – red color, General App – blue color).
2. After you download, install and open the SCOUTEE™ app, you will first see a login screen. Please note that you need WiFi or Mobile Data turned on when signing into the app.
3. If this is your first time using our apps, you have to sign up – please enter your full name, email address, desired password and your role, and then click “SIGN UP”. In General App, please specify also your primary sport/use of the SCOUTEE™ Smart Radar Gun.
4. Once you’re logged into the SCOUTEE™ app, please turn on your SCOUTEE™ and connect it to the app on your smart device. NOTICE: App only works with the SCOUTEE™ Smart Radar Gun.
5. SCOUTEE™ app will now start looking for available SCOUTEE™ devices. Please make sure Bluetooth on your smart device is enabled. IMPORTANT: If your operating system is Android 6.0 or above, it is required that you also turn on the location in order to be able to connect SCOUTEE™ to your Android smartphone.
6. Once the app finds the available SCOUTEE™ radar device, connect it to the app by tapping the gray name or the icon.
7. You will know if your SCOUTEE™ and app are connected if the icon turns red. Your battery percentage indicator is positioned left to the icon.
8. The SCOUTEE™ app consists of four main parts – Home Screen, Statistics, Team and Settings. First, get familiar with the Home screen by learning more about its individual functions.
1. Access the app menu – Home, Statistics, Team, Settings.
2. Connect/disconnect SCOUTEE™ to the app.
3. Switch between the Pitching and the Batting mode. NOTE: These two modes are only characteristic to the SCOUTEE™ Baseball App.
4. Switch between the Single measurement mode and the Continuous measurement mode. Use single mode when you want SCOUTEE™ to measure a single event (e.g. a single pitch), and continuous mode when you want SCOUTEE™ to measure a series of events (e.g. a number of pitches) without the necessity of confirming every single event.
5. Record a video with performance data overlay.
6. Start/stop the speed measurement.
9. You initiate the measurement by tapping the “GO!” button. After speed is measured and displayed, you can confirm or reject it by tapping the green tick or the gray cross.
10. If you confirm the measurement, you will then be asked to assign the type of the pitch (Baseball App only).
11. Next, assign the location of the pitch (baseball app only). The inner nine fields represent the strike area, and the continguous zone represents the ball area. Also, please pay attention to the orientation of the home base (rear view).
12. Next, assign the result of the pitch (baseball app only).
13. If Ball in Play was selected, also assign the result of the action (baseball app only).
14. Alternatively, Video mode lets you record videos with performance data overlay (speed, name, pitch count). Video mode uses the continuous measurement mode as the default setting.
15. The measurements are saved in the Statistics section of the app, by date. By tapping on the date, you can see the list of all the individual measurements made that day. Tap the individual measurement to access its detailed overview. To return to the home screen quickly, tap 1. at the bottom of the screen.
16. This is the detailed view of the results of a single measurement. Personal Best displays the overall highest speed for the certain type of the pitch. Average Speed shows the overall average speed for the certain type of the pitch. Power Index shows the current speed divided by your overall personal best (the closer you are to 100, the better you’re doing compared to your past performance). Accuracy Index shows the number of accurate (within strike zone) pitches divided by the overall total number of pitches of that type. To return to the home screen quickly, tap 1. at the bottom of the screen. To share the measurement with the world, tap 2. bottom right.
17. When the measurements are performed in video mode, a thumbnail of the recorded video with performance data overlay is displayed under the numeric data. To return to the home screen quickly, tap 1. at the bottom of the screen. To share the video with the world, tap 2. bottom right.
18. The Team section of the app allows you to add new players and new teams. Please note that My Team is the default app setting. You can expand the individual team to see all the members of the team by tapping on it.
19. Add new player by writing his/her name and assigning him/her to the appropriate team. Add new team by writing down its name.
20. Welcome to the SCOUTEE™ app Settings screen. Please get familiar with it by learning more about the individual sections of this screen.
21. To sign out of the app, go to the My Profile section.
22. Select the preferred speed unit within the Speed Unit section. The default speed unit will be adapted to your region, but you can always switch between the available units – miles per hour and kilometers per hour (Baseball App), or miles per hour, kilometers per hour, feet per second, and meters per second (General App).
23. Screen Selection section allows you to select the screens that you find useful when assigning the different parameters of the pitch (pitch type, pitch location, pitch result, ball in play result).
24. Measure Direction section allows you to select between measuring the speed of the approaching ball, outgoing ball or both directions. We enabled this option per request of users, as there are certain situations, where you don’t want to get ALL the speeds (e.g. you’re only interested in the pitcher’s speed and not in the batter’s/catcher’s speed). We especially recommend using single direction option in Continuous measurement mode.
25. With the SCOUTEE™ Baseball App you can measure speeds between 16mph (25 km/h) and 135mph (217km/h). To get the best results when using SCOUTEE™, minimum measuring speed is limited and adjustable. The settings screen has two Minimum Speed adjustment bars — one for single measurement mode and one for continuous measurement mode. Minimum speed limit for single measurement mode is 16mph (Baseball App) and 5mph (General App), whereas minimum speed limit for continuous mode is 40mph (both apps). We advise not to set the minimum speed too low if you are measuring high-speed targets (e.g. fastballs in baseball).
As SCOUTEE™ General App enables you to measure higher speeds, we included the Speed Range setting that switches between the Low (5-135mph or 8-217km/h) and the High (5-270mph or 8-434km/h) speed range. As High speed range affects the measurement accuracy, we advise to use it only when measuring speeds above or close to 135mph (217km/h), and switch to Low speed range when possible.
26. My Scoutee section provides the full set of technical information about your SCOUTEE™ device. You don’t need this information in your day-to day use of SCOUTEE™ solution. This is the screen our technical team will usually ask you for should you experience any difficulties when using our app and device in order to fix any potential problems with using the SCOUTEE™ solution.
If you experience any problems using SCOUTEE™ device and/or our apps, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you.
