Installing integrated displays

The integrated displays (room displays, etc) need to be installed, before they can be activated.

Please note, only certified displays are supported.

Installation steps

In general the installation on the display itself is kept as easy as possible. 
The settings and configuration come from the BrightBooking platform as much as possible, which makes it easy to deploy and to swap the units.

After installation an activation code will be presented on the display, with that activation code you can proceed with activating the device in the BrightBooking portal.

 Notes

*) Regarding the internet connection, we always advise to use wired (PoE) connections, which always have the best reliability.

If you have to use Wi-Fi, please make sure you have disabled the ‘Avoid poor network connections’ and ‘Notify whenever a public network is available’ in the Wi-Fi settings menu within Android. This will increase the reliability, for example when maintenance is done on the Wi-Fi network.

You can find this in the Android settings menu -> Wi-Fi -> Advanced. Please note: not all Android versions have these options, so these options might not be applicable for your device.
