Because of the IAdea displays are non-rooted it is not possible to communicate with a non-authorized app to communicate with the hardware/change necessary system settings.

To be able to do that IAdea developed a Firmware Add-on which deploys the GoBright app, authorizes the GoBright app and set the right Android Settings for our app.

Below you will find per display type the right Add-on:

Notes

*) Regarding the internet connection, we strongly advise to use wired (PoE+) connections for highest 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. Read this article about how to close the GoBright Android App to enter Wi-Fi settings of the device: Close the GoBright app on a display

Please note: not all Android versions have these options, so these options might not be applicable for your device.
