Claim of US Patent No. 10,397,961

1. A first terminal for connecting terminals located in a predetermined space, the first terminal comprising:a first communication interface configured to transmit a signal, for executing an input application which enables a plurality of terminals to receive information through a first communication scheme, to the plurality of terminals through a second communication scheme;
a second communication interface configured to broadcast information about the first terminal through the first communication scheme;
a processor configured to receive at least one response, from at least one terminal from among the plurality of terminals, in response to the broadcasted information and generate a list of terminals located in the predetermined space, based on the at least one response from the at least one terminal; and
a display configured to display the generated list to a user and receive an operation from the user to select at least one terminal from the generated list to be connected to the first terminal,
wherein the operation received from the user allows the at least one terminal selected by the user to be connected to the first terminal, and
wherein a coverage area of the second communication scheme is greater than a coverage area of the first communication scheme.
