About this Guide

This guide describes how to use Vocera badges and smartphones to communicate. It starts with the basics, such as the different features of the device and how to place and receive calls.

It also provides information about sending messages, broadcasting, setting properties to customize behavior, and using the full set of voice commands.

Important: All voice commands and features mentioned in this guide are supported in Vocera 4.0 or later unless otherwise indicated.

While this document discusses specific badge features, and badge commands it does not detail the badge properties you need to set to support your network environment, or how to set up a Vocera configuration computer, configure badges using the Badge Properties Editor and the Badge Configuration Utility, and update badge properties and firmware. For a complete description of these topics, refer to Vocera Infrastructure and Planning Guide and the Vocera Badge Configuration Guide.
