Congratulations on getting your first Airtame! This guide will show you how to physically install the device, set it up and stream to it for the first time. The end goal is to have Airtame connected to your existing WiFi so that anybody on that WiFi network can stream, wirelessly.
☝️ Click here to set up using an ethernet adapter.
Note, that at the moment you cannot set up or configure Airtame using a phone or Chromebook, as their app version does not offer access to the Device Management Panel.
Step 1: Installing & Powering Airtame
Airtame requires 5V-1Amp of power from a USB. This USB can be the power adapter provided in the box or from your TV/Projector if it outputs 1 Amp. Your TV/projector’s USB port will be labeled “5V 1A” or “USB-HDD”. (If it says “service,” however, this will not work)
👇 Use the provided HDMI extension cord to fit Airtame in tight spots or to get the Airtame closer to the edge of the screen for better WiFi signal strength.
Step 2: Configuring Airtame
Turn the TV on to the correct HDMI source and you will be asked to Download and install the Airtame app
