Set up using the Desk Screen Manager app

Desk Screen Manager app for Android

If you are setting up multiple Condeco desk booking screens we recommend downloading Condeco’s Desk Screen Manager app. Using the app, connecting desk booking screens to your network and an NTP server, and setting the time zone can be done quickly and easily from your NFC-enabled Android mobile device.

Your Android device must support NFC (Near Field Communication).

Is there an app for iOS devices? Unfortunately not. The Condeco Desk Screen Manager app uses NFC which is only supported on iOS devices for making payments.
