From Smart Phone to Your TV: Just Cast it

Even if you’re not quite ready to invest in a smart TV, you can still turn your monitor or older TV into a smart device, as long as you have an HDMI port available.

As discussed in one of our previous blogs, the Elsys Smarty Android TV Dongle provides an affordable way for users to turn their non-smart, HDMI-enabled screens into smart devices.  The compact dongle just plugs into your screen’s HDMI port and enables Android functionality on your screen.

The Elsys Smarty also has a built-in Chromecast, which means you can stream content wirelessly straight from your smart phone, tablet or computer to your screen.

No remote, no wires, no subscriptions

The Chromecast feature on the Elsys Smarty Android TV Dongle streams via compatible apps on your phone, tablet, or computer in full HD.

For example, when you’re using YouTube or Netflix, you can play the video of your choice on your phone or computer and select the “Cast” icon in the app. The video will then appear on your screen wirelessly via your Elsys Smarty Dongle.

You’ll just need to make sure that your mobile device and your Dongle are on the same Wi-Fi network and install the Google Home app on your phone or tablet. Once that is set up, you’re ready to cast. You can wirelessly send video, sound, photos, presentations and any other media you have stored on your mobile device straight to your screen, instantly.

You can also mirror your computer screen to the Dongle, turning your TV into an instant HD monitor, without having to connect any cables. Casting via your Android Dongle is a useful feature that can make your old TV seem like new again, merging dated and current technology to create a wireless streaming solution that fits into the modern digital world.

Chromecast is subscription-free, so there are no hidden fees and no monthly ongoing costs, just the once-off cost of your Chromecast device.
