Note that currently iOS devices will be able to open the miniremote UI for multitouch support, but will not receive any images from the device being controlled.

Via a Direct URL

You can access the device UI directly by visiting <code class="dcode">https://ui.headspin.io/miniremote/&lt;device_id>?token=&lt;api-token></code>. An example link that works with your API token is provided below:

Visiting the miniremote URL will lock the device to your user account. You can only use miniremote if the device is currently unlocked or locked by you. If another user is locking the device, you will not be able to lock it.

The URL can be configured with additional parameters:

Parameter What This Does Example
title=<page_title> Set the title of the page to a new title. Default title is headspin. title=Headspin
audioReset=<audio_percentage> Adjust device volume to X percentage of full volume. audioReset=20
