The users can use it with a scanned QR code via the BEAM application, and the app can be downloaded via the Apple store (for IOS users) or Google Play Store (for Android users). UiTM Perak hopes that this project shall spark the movement of low-carbon neighbourhoods and foster green, healthy, and quality lifestyles among campus users.
