Apple device settings for Rooms

To offer the best user experience, we recommend keeping the Envoy Rooms app running continuously, displaying real-time activity from your meeting rooms. For optimal performance, please enable these device settings:

1. Auto-Locking

By default, the energy settings on your iPad are configured to lock the screen after a short period of idleness. To prevent your iPad from sleeping, you can modify the Auto-lock setting.

  1. Navigate to your iPad Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock.

  2. Set Auto-Lock to "Never".

  3. This will keep your screen awake, but still respect your screen dimming settings.

2. Automatic software updates

To prevent devices from going to sleep unexpectedly, we suggest disabling automatic system updates.

  1. Navigate to "General" and

  2. Select "Software updates."

  3. Toggle the automatic updates option to the "off" position.

3. Guided Access mode

App or iPad crashes may occur, but enabling the Guides Access mode can assist by automatically restarting the Envoy Rooms app. Furthermore, this mode can prevent individuals from altering the displayed app.

To activate Guided Access mode, you can follow the instructions in this Apple support article.
