General Questions

What is Augmented Reality?


Augmented Reality (or AR for short) is about adding all sorts of content, such as images, videos or 3D objects to reality. And it looks like this content is a part of your reality. On Wikipedia you can find this definition:
"Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real-world are "augmented" by computer-generated perceptual information."




Does Fectar work on my mobile phone?


Yes, it does. Fectar is availble for iPhones as well as Android phones. All iphones that are updated to the latest version of iOs support Fectar in the Augmented Reality modus. To see if your Android phone is compatible, you can check this link for more information. If you have on older smart phone or if you have not updated your smart phone to the latest version of your operating system, you can view Fectar Spaces in the Virtual Room modus.




Fectar keeps statistics of usage of the app. Does that mean that you use my personal information?


We have a Privacy Policy that covers the services that are offered by Fectar. And sometimes it covers services offered by parts of our organisation that operate as separate companies. But only when those services link to this policy or tell you it applies. What’s not covered in this policy? Our services sometimes link to services run by other companies, like when you share a Space on social media such as Whatsapp. Those companies have their own privacy and cookies policies, so remember that the information you give them will follow their rules and not ours.




Where does Fectar store all information?


Some companies that provide services to Fectar run their services from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be being transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA.




How do you protect my personal information?


We’re strongly committed to keeping you and your family’s information safe. And to do this we design our services with your safety in mind. We also have people to look after your information security and privacy. At the same time, no service can be completely secure – if you have any concerns that your Fectar account or personal information has been put at risk, for example if someone could have found out your password, please get in touch straight away.

What if my phone does not support ARCore or ARkit?

My app shows a message: 'Floor not found'


That means that your device is not able to track the floor significantly to place a Space in reality. Try to get more light in your room. Or find a spot so that there is more contrast in the picture. Your device will then be able to track depth and subsequently track the floor. If your device is still not able to find the floor, you wil be offered the option to view the Space in a Virtual Room on your device.




My app show a message: 'No internet connection'


In order to view Spaces in Fectar for the first time you need an internet connection. Without a connection the app is not able to download a Space. Check the internet connection on your device and restart the app when you have confirmation that you have internet.




What is a Virtual Room?


If you have an older smart phone or for some reason your smart phone is not able to 'find the floor', you will get the option to view the Spaces in a Virtual Room. You will see a 3D representation of an actual room. You can view the Space in this room. You can zoom into the information available. And view video, 3D objects and more.

Fectar Studio

What is Fectar Studio?


Fectar Studio is the World's first content management system for both Augmented and Virtuasl Reality. So you can start to work with AR and VR at the same time, without any technical skills. You can compare it with tools such as Joomla or Wordpress to manage content of a website. In the same way, you can now manage AR and VR content. In Fectar Studio you can keep track of all views of your AR content in the special Statistics sections. So you can learn fast on effective AR and VR communication. And change it just as easy.




Can I create a Space myself?


Yes, absolutely, that is what Fectar Studio is built for. Without any technical skills, you can create your own impressive interactive Augmented and Virtual Reality experience. Just as simple as - for instance - creating a word document. You can start a Space from a template or from a set of spots you placed yourself. When you start with a template, all you need to do is fill in the fields in Fectar Studio and you are done. It will take less than 5 minutes to create your own Space.




Was does publish and unpublish mean?


When you create a Space in Fectar Studio, you have the option to publish or unpublish the space. When unpublished no one else but you can see the Space (when you are logged on with your account in the Fectar app). Once you publish a Space, it is open for everyone to see your Space. You can then share for instance, the special Space Code with others.




What does public or private mean?


When you publish a Space and you have set it to 'Public" the Space will then be available for everyone to see on the timeline in the Fectar app. People are also able to share the Space on social media. When you publish a Space and you have set ot to 'Private' only people who have the specific Special Space Code are able to view the Space. The Space will not be visible on the timeline of the Fectar app.




What is a Space Code?


Every Space gets a unique Space Code. This code is made up from a combination of 5 letters. The letters are not case sensitive. In the Fectar app you can fill in the Space Code to see the corresponding Space (only if the Space is actually published).
