Next up, go to Ingress’s trial version page to fill in the request form and submit it back to us. You are required to insert your FingerTec terminal’s serial number for us to generate the trial product key.
If you are not using a FingerTec terminal for testing, you are still required to insert the testing terminal’s serial number, and we will process it accordingly. If you do not have a terminal to test the Ingress software, just leave the serial number text box empty and we will provide you with an 8-digit device serial number and the trial product key. We will email you once your Ingress trial application has been approved.
