I've been asked to write up a step by step for using a Raspberry Pi (RPi) computer as an Active911 Webview monitor.
- I purchased a Raspberry Pi computer from Amazon.
- This also needs an operating system. I bought a 32 GB SD card from Staples and then downloaded the NOOBS image. Step by step instructions for doing this are at: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
- Once that was done, I downloaded the Chromium browser and installed it onto the machine. It seems to be a better browser for handling Active911 Webview.
- Launch Chromium and enter the Registration Code for your Webview session. This saved it so when I launch it in kiosk mode, it simply logs in.
Now I needed to do some configuring so I can boot the RPi and have it launch Chromium in kiosk mode and not have the screen saver come on (I am connected to a 1080i monitor via an HDMI cable for all of this).
