How to use Android device info as streamer default name


1. Prerequisites: 

  • Valid Splashtop team setup with unattended Android remote support feature enabled

  • Splashtop Streamer : or up


2. The supported device information that can be used as custom name

We've now supported the following device info patten. When streamer recives any of these pattens, it'll try to get corresonding value from the current device and use them as streamer default name. 

  • %DEVICE%: Device name

  • %MANUFACTURER%: Manufacturer name

  • %BRAND%: Brand name

  • %MODEL%: Model name

  • %PRODUCT%: Product name

  • %IMEI%: Device IMEI

E.g: Inputing the string “%DEVICE%“ means to use Device name as your streamer name. And you can also input the string like “%DEVICE%_%MANUFACTURER%“ based on your demand.


3. Where to apply your policy

Splashtop admin console->Management->Deployment

  • Step1: Create a new dployment package:



  • Step2: On the Computer Naming Rule part, choose the 2nd or the 3rd option, which are allow to use custom name.
  • Step3: Enter the pattens you want in Part[2] into the custom name input box



  • Step4: When you finish the deployment package creation and use the deploy code to finish deploying your streamer, the streamer name will follow what you set on step 2&3
  • Error handling: If Splashtop streamer fails to get what you set for streamer name due to permissions(e.g IMEI) or any other reasons, streamer will by default use Brand-Model info as streamer name.
