Pairing the Two Zone for Mac Keyboard in Mac OS X

Make sure that you have Bluetooth support on your MacintoshTM and Mac OS X 10.5.x or higher installed. The Two Zone Keyboard may work with older Mac OS X but it is not officially supported.

  2. Enable Bluetooth. Under “System Preferences” click the Bluetooth icon and make sure you see “Bluetooth: On” under the “Settings” tab. If it’s not turned on, click “Turn Bluetooth On.”
  3. Go to the menu bar and click the Bluetooth icon, then click “Bluetooth Preferences.”
  4. Click the “+” tab (set up a new device) in the left window to pair a new Bluetooth device. The Bluetooth assistant opens.(With Mac OS X 10.
  5. x, the Bluetooth assistant may ask what kind of device you are going to pair. Choose “keyboard” and click “continue”). Your computer now searches automatically for new Bluetooth devices. 5. Press the Pairing Button on the backside of the Two Zone Keyboard with a pen to set up a connection to your MacintoshTM. The pairing LED starts to flash in green. Your MacintoshTM should see the Two Zone Keyboard as a “Bluetooth mini Keyboard”. Click “Continue”.
  6. In the dialog box the device “Bluetooth mini Keyboard” will appear. If it is not listed, make sure that the Two Zone Keyboard is turned on and in pairing mode. Then click “Search Again” in the “Bluetooth Device” dialog box.
  7. Click on “Bluetooth mini Keyboard” and press “continue”. The PIN number of the Two Zone Keyboard will be shown on your screen.
  8. Enter the 8-digit PIN number on your Two Zone Keyboard according to the digits shown on your screen and press the “enter”. Click “OK” and the Bluetooth mini Keyboard should be listed in the “Devices” tab under “Bluetooth Preferences.”

When you enter a digit on the Two Zone Keyboard, it is not highlighted as with some other Bluetooth devices. Keep entering the digits quickly and press the “enter” key at the end. If you need too long to or enter a wrong digit, you may have to enter the PIN number again.

Using the Pairing Button

  2. If you have used the Two Zone Keyboard with another MacintoshTM computer, you have to set up the Two Zone Keyboard again. Follow steps 1 ~ 8 above.

  1. To turn off the Two Zone Keyboard, push power switch of Two Zone Keyboard to OFF position.

  3. Power saving function. The Two Zone Keyboard greatly reduces the power consumption automatically when it is in idle mode (connected, but no keying). In fact, the power consumption in idle mode is only about 1⁄4 (about 0.65 mA) of the consumption of the keying mode (typing on the Two Zone Keyboard; about 3 mA). This feature greatly extends the battery life.
  4. The Two Zone Keyboard uses 2 pcs. AA size batteries. You can either use non-rechargeable or rechargeable batteries.

The Two Zone Keyboard shows unstable behavior such as a sudden loss of connection, sleep mode after a short time (i.e. only a few seconds), no connection possible when trying to pair, etc.
The unstable behavior of the Two Zone Keyboard can be a result of (too) low battery power. You should change the batteries now.

Can the Two Zone Keyboard be connected with various MacintoshTM computers, i.e. an iMac and a MacBook, and switch back and forth?
No, the Two Zone can only be connected with one MacintoshTM computer at a time. When switching to another MacintoshTM, the pairing needs to be redone. It is recommended to delete the “Bluetooth mini Keyboard” first before re-pairing is performed. You can delete it by choosing the “Bluetooth mini Keyboard” and clicking on the “-“ sign in the left window. Follow the steps under “Bluetooth Pairing under Mac OS X”.

Can the battery power status be read in the AppleTM System Preferences?
No, there is no reading for the current battery power status. Once the battery power is low, the LED will flash very slowly in green.

On the Two Zone Keyboard, there is a “.” (decimal) key. In my language, the “,” is used as the decimal sign. Will the Two Zone Keyboard display a “.” or a “,”?
Whether the Two Zone Keyboard displays a “.” or a “,” depends on the Mac OS installed (keyboard layout/language), i.e. in French OS/keyboard layout, the decimal key displays a “,” while in Swiss OS/keyboard layout, a “.” is displayed.

During the process of pairing the Two Zone Keyboard with the Macin toshTM, there is a window displayed called “Keyboard identification”. I am supposed to press the key next to the shift key.
The message can be ignored. Simply press the red button in the upper left corner to close this window. Your MacintoshTM will recognize the Two Zone Keyboard.
