Preview: Setting up room displays with MDM

This is is a preview feature, and may not be available on all accounts.

Requires

  • Room displays must be running version 3.1 or higher
  • Admin access within Robin
  • Admin access within your MDM provider

Robin integrates with Mobile Device Management (MDM) providers, making it easy to deploy and manage the room displays in your workplace. In this configuration workflow, you can quickly pair a fleet of devices with a set of spaces. 

Examples of MDM providers supported in this configuration include AirWatch and JAMF, although any provider following the AppConfig community standard should work as well.

Initiate pairing in Robin Dashboard

1
Navigate to Settings>Devices>Activate Room Displays to begin pairing your devices.

Select the spaces to pair with devices. With this workflow, one display will be assigned randomly to each of the selected spaces. You may assign additional displays to a space, or assign specific displays to specific spaces following these steps

Additional Configurations - ASAM

Supervised devices, either through the Apple Configurator or Apple's Device Enrollment Program, will support Autonomous Single App Mode (ASAM). You can enable this setting within your MDM provider to regulate displays. 

When ASAM is enabled, the Rooms app will remain in the foreground in Single App Mode. If the device were to lose connectivity, it will exit single app mode for easier troubleshooting, and then return automatically when the device is back online.
