Is there an app required for Android?

Yes. Our Android service requires an app on the device in order to remotely control settings. We have a version published in the Google Play Store, along with a full-featured version available via direct download.

Google now requires that all apps in the Play Store need to disable access to the SMS and Phone controls unless they are specific apps for Phone and SMS. Netsanity still makes the full version available directly by having our customers download the full Netsanity Agent separate from the Play Store.

Please note that there will be additional screens during the setup that require permissions. If you feel more comfortable with the version available in the Google Play store, please understand that SMS and Phone controls will not be available. If a few permissions screens don’t bother you be sure to download our full version (link provided during sign up).
