The list of integration partners can be found here. But we have published the interface we use for integration as open source and we can integrate with any meet manager that implements that interface. If you are using a currently unsupported meet manager then contact support and we can see what options are available.
Yes, Wylas Timing supports integration with all brands of touchpads except for Daktronics.
All that is required is to take the existing banana socket outputs from the touchpad and plug them into the Wylas Timing Touchpad Adapter which is then plugged into the audio socket of the Wylas Timekeeper Android device.
Total timing accuracy when using an electronic starter and touchpad is around the 3 millisecond mark.
Yes, the recorder is able to edit times so that the adjusted time will be sent to the meet manager. If there is more than one timer then it may just be better to enter no time for that watch and use the times from the remaining watches.
Yes. The recorder has the ability to record a disqualification against an athlete along with a reason for the disqualification. Results for a disqualified athlete will show on the Wylas Display in a red strike-through font.
Yes. You can print race result straight out of the Wylas Timing Recorder by switching on the showPrintableResultsOnFinalise config option.
This will make the Event Results button appear on the Race tab. Whenever a race has been finalised the Event Results button will become enabled and clicking on it will generate a printable page showing the results across all heats of that event.
It has been noted that a recent system update to some phone models has caused them to change the way they register audio input from headsets. Wylas Timing uses headset audio input to receive start and finish signals from the starting pistol and touchpads.
To ensure that the audio channel is able to be registered successfully, please ensure that you plug the start cable / touchpad adapter into the android device before, connecting the the starting pistol / touchpad.
You can verify that the device is connected correctly when you see “Audio Jack – Connected” on the screen.
Make sure that you are attempting to connect to the Wylas WiFi network. By default this is “WylasTiming-2.4Ghz”.
Make sure you are using the correct password. Ask your Chief Timekeeper what this is. It should be printed on the underside of the Wylas router.
Make sure that Bluetooth is switched OFF on your device.
Make sure that the date and time of your device is within a day of now. Go to Settings->System->Date & Time.
We sure do.

The timekeepers will last for about 7 hours on a full charge. So generally long enough for most meets.
If you have a really long meet then the cheapest and simplest option is to purchase spare batteries from eBay/Amazon, charge them up the night before and swap them in half way through your meet.
Here are the batteries for some of the phone models we use:
