To add a device so that you can start to manage or control it, you need to first download and install the AirDroid Business Daemon (Biz Daemon) application on that controlled device.
There are different methods to download the application, but we suggest using Method 1 or 3, as it saves you time from performing more binding procedures.
The 3 METHODS to add your devices to your Admin Console:
You can directly download the Bulk-deploy version APK file from Admin Console, and your device will be ADDED AUTOMATICALLY after setup.
(This method is suggested if you are able to transfer the downloaded APK from a computer to your device.)
You can ACCESS a unique weblink of the Bulk-deploy version APK file from your devices, and your device will be ADDED AUTOMATICALLY after setup.
Method 3 (NEW!):
If your device is able to scan the QR code, you can download the Bulk-deploy version APK file via scanning the unique QR code.
(This method is suggested if you wish to download directly from the devices you want to control.)
1. Software Installation
Go to Admin Console > click on the download icon and you will see there are 2 OPTIONS to download and install Biz Daemon for your controlled devices.
Method 1 Direct Download:
You can directly download your Bulk-deploy version APK file by clicking on Download APK.
After that, you need to transfer the APK files to your devices via USB drives or cables.
Method 2 Download from devices:
You can also access the unique link by using the browser of your controlled devices and you should see YOUR OWN 6-digit code on the unique link.
Use your device's browser to access the unique link and you can download the Bulk-deploy APK file.
(RECOMMENDED) Method 3 Scan QR Code:
If your device is able to scan QR code, you can use the unique QR code to download the Bulk-deploy version APK file from your Admin Console.
(Note: you can download any third-party QR scanner applications from Google Play)
After that, you can be directed to your device's browser to download the Bulk-deploy APK file.
NOTE: If a notification message pops up before installation, please ENABLE Unknown sources to continue the process.
1.2 Bind Your Device - Where is the Deployment code or QR Code?
After downloading the Basic Version, you need to bind your devices by unique Deployment code or QR Code. (NOTE: Don't use the deployment code on this screenshot)
Go to Devices > click on the group under Device List > Add Device and you should see:
1.3 Bind Your Device via Deployment Code or QR Code
Open Biz Daemon on your controlled device, please scan QR Code or enter the unique Deployment Code to add your devices.
2. Gaining Permissions from Your Devices
After scanning the QR code or entering the Deployment code, your device will bind to your AirDroid Business account.
To gain remote permissions, follow the setup wizard to ENABLE ALL remote permissions.
NOTE: You can disable some of the permissions later if you don't need some features.
