You can prevent your Android-based tablet from going to sleep as well as protect the screen from wear and tear by using a kiosk browser.
I recommend Fully Kiosk Browser, however there are many alternatives.
I like Fully Kiosk because it:
- Can turn off the screen after a period of time
- Can turn off the screen if the lights in the room go off
- Can turn on the screen if motion is detected by the camera
- Locks the tablet from use (no homescreen / settings / power access)
- Can be unlocked with a PIN and you can then access the main Android homescreen
- Can publish device sensor data via MQTT - great for Home Assistant!
Some of these features are restricted to “Plus”, but it’s only €6.90 / $7.50 one-time to unlock.
Refer to this excellent article by HowToGeek for the various options available to iOS users for restricting an iOS-based device to a single app.
Current options include:
- Guided Access
- Apple Configurator (requires a Mac device)
You may need to add a website icon to your home screen first.
No problem - just submit an enhancement request on our GitHub page so that we can track the request!
