Using the SET Scoring App for Android for Electronic Scoring

Download the SET Scoring App


  • All SET Tatami laptops and the scoring devices have to be in the same network
  • All SET Tatami laptops have a static IP address
  • The latest SET Scoring App is installed from the Google Playstore
  • Its recommended to use a wired local network (for the Tatami computers) and additional Wireless Repeaters on all Tatamis, in order to have better Wireless connection for the scoring devices.
  • Wireless Repeater mode: if your tatami router does not provide the Wireless Repeater mode, you can simply disable DHCP on the router and give the router a static IP address.
  • To avoid using wireless at all, you can use OTG Plugable Lan Adapters, and connect the tablets via lan cable to the router/switch. See below the recommended hardware section.
  • All SET Tatami laptops have disabled their firewall and any anti virus software
  • Port 8080 needs to be use to communicate with the scoring devices, so make sure no other software or firewall is blocking this Port

Pair the scoring devices with the Tatami computer

  • Open the “WKF Kata APP Device Assignment”

  • Press the Authentication button
  • This will create a new PIN code and QR Code for the authentication URL
    Note: each time you open the Authentication window a new PIN code will be generated for security reasons
