Mold problems in Finnish schools drove tech start-up Luokkahenki to rethink the way air quality is measured. Students in the Luokkahenki program self-evaluate their health once a week using the Luokkahenki app on a dedicated mobile device.
However, Luokkahenki faced the challenge of making sure their devices were used correctly and for their intended purpose. Here's where HMD Solutions stepped in. Using HMD Enable Pro to deploy devices in Kiosk Mode, Luokkahenki was able to limit the use of their devices to their own app and block access to all other apps and browsers.
“Kiosk mode is essential for us,” Salminen says. “We can be sure that each of our phones is only used for its intended purpose: as an interface for our service. No one is able to surf the web or play games with our phones. This acts as a safety feature for us – it is useless if anyone steals it and you can’t use it as a mobile phone. Knowing it remains locked for our use is very important.”
