Airtame Cloud Plus is a premium version of our Airtame Cloud platform, that enables more advanced Screen Management functionality and digital signage and helps our customers — whether they are schools, large enterprises, or smaller businesses — transform offices, classrooms, and common areas with their screens.
What are the benefits of Airtame Cloud Plus?
Airtame Cloud Plus provides our users with an overview of what is shown on their Airtame-equipped screens, as well as the possibility to set up digital signage content via our numerous integrations (ex. PowerPoint, Google Slides, Youtube, etc.). It also provides access to Sleep Schedule, which helps save power used by the Airtame device and the display screen it is connected to.
Along with these features, the Airtame Cloud Plus provides more advanced screen and device management, helps with troubleshooting potential issues, as well as provides reactive value with digital signage integrations.
Our digital signage apps/integrations:
When your Airtame device is not being used for screen sharing, you can use these integrations and organize them in a continuous loop (Looped content) or scheduled for a precise day and time (Scheduled content).
It also provides you with access to the Sleep Schedule, which allows your Airtame devices to go to a standby mode when not being used or to schedule when the Airtame and the display will turn on/off via CEC.
What are the different Cloud roles on Airtame Cloud?
You can make full use of Airtame Cloud Plus and delegate different user permissions based on roles within an organization or school.
Assigning user roles is a way to effectively manage such permissions. Here’s a breakdown of the different levels of access tied to each role:
Owner: This role automatically belongs to the person/email address that set up the account. At any given time there can only be one owner. However, you can pass on ownership to someone else. This role is the only one that can purchase and cancel Cloud Plus subscriptions. Along with the administrator, the owner can add/remove specific devices from the Cloud Plus functionality.
Administrator: This role gives full access to all functionality of Airtame Cloud, including being able to invite new users and edit user roles, as well as to create new groups of devices and add/remove specific devices from the Cloud Plus functionality. The difference from an owner is that an administrator can't delete users or pass on account ownership.
Content Manager: This role gives full access to Screens tab only in order to manage digital signage content. Managers cannot invite other users, assign user roles or create new groups.
Device and content Manager: This role gives full access to the Screens tab and device settings in order to manage both digital signage content and edit the devices' configurations. Managers cannot invite other users, assign user roles or create new groups.
Moderator: This role gives access to streaming moderation only. Moderators cannot invite other users, assign user roles or create new groups.
You can find more information about these roles, how to invite/delete users or change ownership in our article about managing your account.

Is the Airtame Cloud secure?
Airtame Cloud sends information over the Internet, so extra security measures are taken to ensure no information is ever at risk. Even though sensitive information like passwords and web URLs are never sent to the cloud.
The Airtame Cloud solution is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) which is recognized for its high level of security. Airtame uses an AWS data center in Germany. User account information and passwords are stored on the server and are bcrypt-hashed for maximum security. You can read more information about this in our article about Airtame and security.
What configuration needs to be done to allow Cloud Plus features to work?
After purchasing the Airtame Cloud Plus subscription, you would need to make sure that your Airtame devices are assigned their subscription seats.
In other words, you need to assign which of your Airtame devices have access to Airtame Cloud Plus features. In this article here, you can learn how to assign devices to your Airtame Cloud Plus seats.
Some network requirements are needed for the Airtame Cloud to work with your Airtame devices:
Internet access - port: 443.
Be able to synchronize time with either your NTP server (option 42 on your DHCP server) or external NTP servers (port: 123).
Your network must allow communication with servers in Germany since https://airtame.cloud is hosted on AWS in Germany.
You must use a unique cloud token for each Airtame device, refresh the token for each new Airtame added.
