Desk Control™ App

Connect your LINAK Desk Panel DPG with your iOS or Android mobile device, or to your desktop PC. Auto-connect, receive motivational notifications, and have statistics with overview to help utilise the office desk’s adjustment function more actively – and ultimately improve work habits.

Desk Control™ App

By downloading the LINAK® Desk Control™ App, desk users come one step closer to changing their prolonged and often unhealthy sitting behaviour. The app is developed for users of electric sit-stand desks, equipped with either of the LINAK® DPG Desk Panels DPG1M, DPG1B, or DPG1C.

Via Bluetooth® wireless technology, the app allows the users to connect their desks either to their iOS or Android mobile devices, or to their PC (Windows 10). Once the app is installed, friendly reminders will help the user to change position frequently, while on-the-fly statistics show daily achievements.

As well as adjusting desk height, the user can also store favourite positions in the app, thus improving ergonomics by using the optimal work heights – whether sitting or standing.
The LINAK Desk Control™ App is designed to help the user build a healthy routine by reminding him/her to use the sit-stand function during the working day.

The free app comes in multiple languages and is available for three different platforms:

  • iOS for iPhones and iPads
  • Android for Android smartphones and tablets
  • Microsoft® Windows 10 for PCs

Desk Control™ App - Can I combine the use of the app on more devices at the same time?

No. There is only one Bluetooth® connection on the DPG. So only one device can be connected at a time to the DPG. The device (either your mobile or your computer) that first connects with the DPG will be the device on which you can use the app.

Desk Control™ App - I cannot find the Desk Control App in the Windows Store. Why is that?

The Desk Control App for Windows is only available for Windows 10 in the Microsoft Store. If you have an older Windows version, you cannot download the Desk Control App.

Desk Control™ App - My desk drives only a few centimetres, then it stops. Why is that?

Your Bluetooth® driver may be outdated. Ensure that the latest Bluetooth driver is installed on your computer.

Desk Control™ App - What is the difference between connecting as “Owner” and connecting as “Guest”?

The difference is where your personal settings are stored and whether you are automatically reconnected to the desk.

If you connect as “Owner”, your reminder and favourite settings are stored in the DPG on the desk and your app will automatically connect to this desk when you arrive at it and track the statistic sit/stand data throughout the day.

If you connect as “Guest”, your reminder and favourite settings are stored on the app on your smart device/computer and when you connect to a desk, these settings will reflect in the DPG. You need to pair the app with the desk every morning and then for the rest of the day the app will automatically connect to this desk and send standing notifications and keep track of sit/stand data.

Desk Control™ App - Who can access/use the data?

The data can only be accessed in your device. LINAK does not access or use any data entered in the app (such as favourite positions, height, weight, and gender) or collected by the app (statistics).

Desk Control™ App - Who owns the data entered in/collected by the app?

The user owns all data entered in/collected by the app. Delete the app to delete all data. Go to settings on your device to delete the app. If you re-install the app, you need to pair the app and the desk again to be able to control the desk via the app.

Desk Control™ App - Why can I not operate my desk with the app?

You can use the app if your desk has Bluetooth® connection. The Bluetooth connection happens via a DPG desk panel with reminder (all app versions) or a BLE2LIN adapter (iOS, Android and Windows 10). If you have a DPG without Bluetooth, you cannot use the app.

Desk Control™ App - Will the app keep collecting data if I am not at the desk?

The app detects if the smart device/computer is close enough to the desk to be connected to it. The app will collect data if the connection between the smart device/computer and the desk is established, even if you are not at your desk.

As long as your computer is within reach of the DPG Bluetooth® connection and you are logged into your computer, your standing time is counted in. When your computer is in standby mode, or you have locked the screen, standing time is not counted in.

Desk Control™ App - Will the app remind me to stand if I am not at my desk?

The app detects if the smart device/computer is close enough to the desk to be connected to it. The app will only send notifications if the connection between the app and the desk is established.
