How to Get Started with Valotalive Digital Signage for Chrome OS

These instructions are for self-managed Chrome OS devices used together with Valotalive Digital Signage. We also offer Chrome OS device management as a service – just order pre-configured devices online in a few minutes and start using them when the shipment arrives.

Step 1: Make sure you have an active Chrome Enterprise Upgrade & Valotalive Digital Signage subscription 

To manage Chrome OS devices, you first need to make sure you have a Chrome Enterprise Upgrade. You can choose either Annual or Perpetual which covers the life of the device it’s enrolled to.

ChromeOS devices with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade provide flexible access to corporate data, regardless of use case.

To use Valotalive for sharing content to your info screens, you need an active subscription. Register to start your free trial, or choose your preferred paid plan from these options (starting from € 9 / month / app / display). 

When you’ve created your Valotalive account, you can get started with this Get Started guide.

Step 2: Set up kiosk mode for Valotalive Digital Signage

You’re now ready to set up your existing devices in the Google Admin console. 

Sign in with your Chrome Enterprise account using this link.

Navigate to Devices → Chrome → Apps & Extensions → Kiosks to enable kiosk mode with Valotalive Digital Signage.

Click the plus icon & add from the Chrome Web Store button to choose Valotalive and set that as the auto-launch app for your organizational unit’s devices.

By doing this, you ensure your Chrome OS devices will automatically show Valotalive Digital Signage content after being turned on and that no other apps will be available for non-admin users.

Step 3: Enforce global device policies in the Google Admin console

In the Google Admin console, navigate to Devices → Chrome → Settings to give your devices the needed other settings and enforce needed policies. 

Some of the most important settings include:

  • Set up kiosk mode & autolaunch (see step 2)
  • Disable guest mode and restrict user sign-in according to company policies
  • Set scheduled reboot cycle (once a week recommended)
  • Select automatic updates for OS versions (recommended)
  • Get inactive device notifications after a certain period of time

Find the complete list of all settings here.

Step 4: Enroll your Chrome OS devices with Chrome Enterprise Upgrade account

Switch on your Chrome device but do not login yet. When prompted to sign in, press the key combination CMD+Shift+E or Ctrl+Alt+E. This takes you to the Enterprise enrollment screen.

Next, provide your Admin account credentials.

Click on Enroll Device. The devices get added to the Google portal and will be automatically synced with your pre-configured policies and settings that apply.

Detailed instructions to Enterprise Enrollment in Valotalive Help Center. You can also read more about Enterprise enrollment in Google’s documentation.

When you want to add an additional Chrome OS device, simply repeat this step.

Step 5: Pair with Valotalive Digital Signage

The first time you sign in and the Valotalive app launches, you will be asked to pair your device with Valotalive Digital Signage. 

In order to manage Valotalive Displays, the display needs to be paired with the Valotalive cloud.

When signed into the Valotalive app, navigate to Displays → Choose “Claim a display” → Give your PIN from the screen, Name your device, and hit the “Claim the display” button”

After doing this for all of your devices, you’re ready to start displaying content from Valotalive Digital Signage with your Chrome OS devices.

Should I choose Chrome Sign Builder or digital signage software for Chrome OS? What’s the best alternative?

Google’s Chrome Sign Builder is an excellent free tool for simple use cases like displaying a static restaurant menu or a single Google Slides presentation on the info screen.

If your needs are any more complex, chances are it might not be ideal for your use case, in which case we recommend choosing a digital signage software like Valotalive that works seamlessly with Chrome OS devices.

Starting from just € 9 / month  / app / display, Valotalive digital signage is an affordable option for companies who need a bit more flexibility, like the ability to add content on the go in real-time with your mobile phone, personalize content for each info screen, or share content directly from multiple workplace apps without sharing public URLs.
