Using Slack is highly recommended to control the robot.  Configuring Slack isn't difficult if you are familiar with Slack. Here's the concept:

* Your HomeAware Robot inherits the identity of your Slackbot
* Your Slack Channel represents the location of the robot

Follow these  instructions to configure the Android App:

1. Create a Slack channel named for the location your robot will map
2. Create a slackbot at slack.  
3. Run the HomeAware App on Project Tango
4. Submit "you are located in {channelName}" where {channelName} is the name of the channel you created at Slack
5. Submit "your slackbot api token is {token}" where {token} is the API Token provided by Slack

HomeAware should now connect to the Slack API, take on the name you gave your slackbot and be able to read and write messages to the channel.  

If your HomeAware Robot is moved to a different location you must create a new channel to represent that location.  The Area Description Files are named after the channel.
