B-Alert Pairing of Headset and Dongle/ESU

B-Alert headsets are shipped paired to either a B-Alert Dongle or an ESU. If the pairing is lost, the devices must be re-synced using the B-Alert Live software, which is included with your AcqKnowledge installation. B-Alert Live supports AcqKnowledge B-Alert functionality and is installed to the following default directory: Main Drive:\ABM\B-Alert\Rome\

  1. Browse to the above directory and launch the B-Alert Live software by double-clicking the Rome.exe icon.B-Alert Rome icon
  2. Plug the Bluetooth receiver (i.e., dongle or ESU) into your PC. Note: Ensure that all nearby B-Alert products, including headsets and other dongles/ESUs, are turned off and unplugged.
