Motion Chime Option

User1282 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 3

This is NOT for capturing images, however some of the placements of the kiosk don't always catch the attention of those walking by (I use small 7" android devices). Having the option to use the front facing camera to detect motion and simply play some sound clip such as a CHIME or other sound file. (maybe allow that sound file to be downloaded to the android device remotely). The thought is this could be a neat way to help draw the attention of those walking by the device to look at it and hopefully interact or check out what is being displayed over to the kiosk. (Obviously this would not work in a busy place, but in my case with small business and light foot traffic, finding a way to capture the attention of those walking in front of the device would be helpful)

Not a bug

Youtube video iframe problem

luis 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 3

We are experimenting problems with Youtube videos inserted in a Javascript slider (LayerSlider).

The web works fine in any regular browser but in Kiosk Browser opens a blank page in Android Chrome browser.

Today's update seems to have broken app

User447 2 years ago in Application • updated 2 years ago 2

I was debugging an issue and reinstalled kiosk browser. Now every time i touch the screen (other then the top menu) the app crashes. Verified on two tablets. Didn't have this issue on last version. Can I manually install the previous version to verify the bug?

We've just discovered an issue that we've fixed but the update takes a couple hours to appear on Google Play. You can get the APK to install manually from here if required: https://www.kbremote.net/Content/download/KioskBrowser-free-release.apk

Login Screen / Password After the screensaver

User836 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 5

Hello,


Would it be possible for us to have screensaver > a signin form > homepage


And then have a session type system that took the users to the home page rather than sign in form. It would be nice if you could control the settings for this via the remote control system too,


If the software doesn't/won't in the future natively, do you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this,


Thanks for your time,


Luke

Android update - lock system toolbar & swipe down isn't blocked

User1324 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 10

We have been testing the pro version, and it was all working fine until our device updated Android (to V 5.0.2 from 4.4). Now, we have enabled the Settings > Display > Full Screen Mode, so the user can't swipe down and the system bar is locked / hidden. The device profile is exactly the same as before, however now, we swipe down and engage with the toolbar and system settings etc.


Please advise how we can really enable the disabling of this in the android version.

Android 4.2.2 uses SSLv3 instead of TLS1.1

User447 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2

My web server requires TLSv1.1 or TLSv1.2. This works fine with Kiosk Browser on android 5.0. But Kiosk Browser can not connect from our Android 4.2.2 tablets. Using chrome on the same tablets can connect fine so I know the tablet itself can support TLS.

It will only connect from Kiosk Browser when I enable SSLv3. I updated Kiosk Browser and no change. Is there some reason Kiosk Browser won't use TLS on Android 4.2.2?

Do kiosk browser pro license include remote management https://www.kbremote.net/?

Aaron Nel 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2

If I have bought kiosk browser pro licenses, does this include the remote management log in at https://www.kbremote.net/ ?

Answer

No it does not, remote management is a subscription service paid either monthly or annually. If you subscribe to remote management you do not need to buy pro licences.
