I'm learning the details of Fully Kiosk Browser, it's great ! I'm setting up a control panel/tablet using FKB and ActionTiles. It's installed in a bedroom. Screensaver does an admirable job of setting the brightness level to 0; however, on a cheap tablet in a dark room, it's quite obvious that the tablet backlight is still on. I'd like an option to turn off the backlight, but not actually lock the tablet as I don't want to have to swipe up to "unlock" the android tablet. I just want to tap/motion, have the backlight turn on and be immediately presented with my FKB running ActionTiles.
Thoughts or Ideas ?
I had the same issue and couldn't find the solution. the only way to get a tap function is with a screen saver. the power off option doesn't work with tapping, only motion. what about having the screensaver be some kind of dim digital clock?
That's a good idea, Matt. Appreciate you sharing your experience. With the dim clock, I *think* I might still have the same problem as the backlight would still be on. Most of the time, not an issue, but only an issue in a very dark room (e.g. bedroom). Maybe it's a device limitation ? Maybe Android/Fire simply doesn't allow applications to turn off the backlight and keep the device unlocked ?
I suspect it will still be back lit, I'm just thinking from a phychological perspective you may be less annoyed by a clock than a backlit black screen.
That's a really subtle point that I overlooked, and you just might be right, I suppose.
