To use our easy and quick registration method using a claim code or QR code, visit: Register A Device with Appspace.

This article provides an overview of advanced device registration options that we offer; ideal for bulk or offline registration:

  • Register device locally – This option is ideal for users on closed on-premises network environments with no access to the Appspace Public Cloud. You can only register one device at a time.

  • Register device using a local policy file – Users on devices with USB or SD cards, may utilize this method if they would like to register their device with local policies in place. You can only register one device at a time.

    Note
    1 The Register device using a local policy file option is currently only available for BrightSign and LG devices.
  • Register device using network policy file – This method is ideal for bulk registering all devices in your local network. However, you will need a network administrator to configure the DNS server entries for your network.

  • Register device with Google CDM – This method is specifically for Chrome users utilizing Google CDM (Chrome Device Management). Once you have CDM configured, the network policy file in place will automatically register in bulk all Chrome devices in your network.

  • Register device with Crestron XiO – This method is specifically for Crestron XiO integration, allowing Crestron users to import and register Crestron devices without a webUI.

  • Register device with a serial number – This method is ideal for bulk registering specific devices in your local network. However, this method is only limited to devices that embed serial numbers to the device fingerprint.

  • Preregister a device – This method pre-registers devices by first creating a device record in the console, allowing customers and third-party integrators to stream and display Appspace channels on non-standard devices via a HTML5 compatible browser.
