Deployment 1 Notes
At least one week prior to installation day, you should begin preparing the kiosks for deployment. Cease all software development and
conduct several days of reliability testing
to ensure the latest build is robust. You should plan to work through these guidelines as early as possible, but bear in mind that any activity that involves opening or closing the kiosks may disrupt an otherwise functioning system.
When meeting the participant at the lab
Describe the study and answer and questions the participant may have
Discuss possible noise issues with participant to determine if he or she will be comfortable with the kiosks
Discuss energy consumption issues and how this will be compensated
Explain damage waiver and indicate that we are not responsible for damage to belongings (but will do our best to prevent this)

Revise form to mention cabinets or “kiosks” (not just laptops)
Remove “5 areas of your home” language
