As of v3.0, Airtame Homescreen instructions can be customized to your liking. You can, for instance, rewrite the guide in another language, or, advise users to use a USB Drive in the room to get ahold of the Airtame app.

☝️ You can always reset the text to the default information by removing all text and saving settings.

 

Variables

Some of the information that you will need may vary when you change settings, therefore we have made some variables that you can insert which will replace itself with this changing information. For example the device's name.

Build your onscreen instructions using any of the following variables by copying the two "curly brackets" on each side of the word. i.e {{DEVICE_NAME}}

IP address: {{DEVICE_IP}}
Name of Airtame: {{DEVICE_NAME}}
WiFi name: {{WIFI_NAME}}
WiFi IP address: {{DEVICE_WIFI_IP}}
AP Name: {{DEVICE_NAME}}
AP IP address: {{DEVICE_AP_IP}}
AP password: {{AP_PASSWORD}}
USB IP address: {{DEVICE_USB_IP}}
Ethernet IP address: {{DEVICE_ETHERNET_IP}}
Update channel: {{DEVICE_CHANNEL}}

⚠️ {{DEVICE_IP}} will result in the IP of a connection in the following priority order, depending on what connection is available: Ethernet IP > WiFi IP > AP IP > USB IP

 

Text Formatting

The text apperance is controlled using Markdown, a system which will change the look of text when special characters are added on either side of the text you'd like to look diferent. 

Headers: # (H1), ## (H2), ### (H3), #### (H4), ##### (H5), ###### (H6)
Italics: *asterisks* or _underscores_
Bold: **asterisks**
Line-break: <br>
Line-break + dividing line: ___ (3 underscores)
No Hyperlinks in Overlay text: <pre>your@email.com</pre>

Extra space between letters:
"Hello &nbsp; there!" would result in an extra space between "Hello" and "there"

⚠️ H6 is always grey. It is the same size as H5. So use H6 only with corresponding backgrounds.

Below you can find some examples based on how you've set up your Airtame device and how would you like people to connect. You can simply copy and paste those in your device settings.
