This guide will show you how to physically install the Airtame, set up and stream for the first time. The end goal is to have Airtame connected to your existing network so that anybody on that same network can stream wirelessly.
Installing with an Ethernet adapter?
Follow instructions in this article: Set up using an Ethernet adapter
What you need before setting up
- Airtame (and all accessories in the box)
- TV or projector
- WiFi network
- A computer: Windows, macOS, Linux.
Note that setup from Chromebook or mobile devices is not supported.
Step 1: Mounting
Airtame can be placed differently depending on whether a permanent or flexible installation is desired.
- Flexible installation involves using the magnetic wall mount to fix Airtame to a magnetic surface, such as the back of the frame of your TV or projector.
- Permanent mounting uses the adhesive on the magnetic wall mount to stick the Airtame to any surface. For optimal streaming, mount the Airtame 2 on the wall approximately 10cm/4in from the edge of the display using the non-removable adhesive.

Step 2: Powering
Airtame requires 5V-2.3Amps provided by the supplied power adapter. Airtame 2 cannot be powered from the TV or projector's USB port nor can the Aircord be extended using a USB extension as this will undervolt the device.
If powered up successfully, Airtame 2 will display a green LED light.
Step 3: Configuration
Turn the TV on to the correct HDMI source and you will be asked to:
1. Download and install the Airtame app: www.airtame.com/setup
2. Open the Airtame app and wait for the blue "Set up" button to appear:
3. Follow the Set up instructions:
The Airtame app will detect new devices when they are nearby and allow you to set them up with just a few clicks. Settings are sent through WiFi so your computer will temporarily switch to Airtame's WiFi (hotspot) to transfer these initial configurations.
- Enter a name for your Airtame.
- Choose how you will connect the Airtame to your network. (WiFi, Ethernet, or Ad-Hoc).
- If WiFi, select your network from the list of nearby WiFi's and chose 5GHz over 2.4GHz whenever available.
- For macOS: Click "Connect" and enter your computer's user password to allow Airtame to switch WiFi while transferring settings.
- Wait for confirmation to show on the TV screen. For additional configuration, go to Airtame device settings
