Windows Deployment

The latest version of Mobile Eye can always be downloaded after logging into the web interface. Just click the Downloads button from the left navigation menu.

SCCM

Network administrators may perform remote, quiet installations of Mobile Eye on Windows devices with Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager). Below is a sample script for installing a Windows MSI file from the command line. The script allows you to pass in the organization ID variable during install.

Before installing, you must have your organization’s unique ID. Your organization ID is a special code that maps your devices to our cloud. It MUST come from 7SIGNAL.

msiexec /i 7signal-Mobile-Eye-Agent-Win-1.7.1.27-prod.msi ORGANIZATION_ID=yourOrgID /qn

Intune (Microsoft Endpoint Manager)

You can also install Mobile Eye through InTune, however, it is a two-step process.

Step 1 – Install the MSI

First, you will install the MSI by clicking on Client Apps in the left navigation menu. Then under the Manage menu, click Apps.

Click the Add button along the top. For App type, select Line-of-business app. In the Line-of-business configuration section, you need to specify the installation file for deployment, the information for the application, and you can also specify the scope for installation using tags.

LOB App-1

Click on App Package File and select the Mobile Eye installation file that you have on your local machine. Select the file and InTune reads the installer and a brief summary shown. Click OK.

Under App Information, click Configure. You will need to enter details specific to the application, such as Description, Publisher, Developer etc. Most of all the command line parameters that should be used when this application is installed.

Within App Information, you have 2 buttons.

  1. Ignore App Version is used for applications with self-updating installers, such as 7SIGNAL. Set this to “Yes”.
  2. Highlight in Company Portal does exactly that. 

Under Command-line arguments is where you would enter your usual MSI/EXE installation params.

Use /qn so that the result is a quiet (silent) install with no User Interface being displayed.

After you have populated all the information/completed all the options, you can then select Add at the bottom of the screen.

At this stage, your installation file that is local to your machine will be uploaded to the Intune Portal. Once the upload is complete, you will receive a notification. You will also see the application appears in the Client Apps – Apps list of applications available for you to deploy.

The next step is to configure an assignment. After you add an application, you can assign the app to users and devices. From the left menu, click Assignments.

Step 2 – Update the Organization ID

Next, you will need to create a PowerShell script that you will upload and deploy through InTune.

You can create the script with Notepad (see below) and save it as 7SIGNAL.ps1

$7SIGNAL = “C:\Program Files (x86)\7signal Solutions, Inc\MobileEyeAgent\application.properties”
((Get-Content $7SIGNAL -Raw) -replace ‘publicsandbox’,’yourOrgID’) | Set-Content $7SIGNAL
Restart-Service -name MobileEyeAgent

Then, through InTune, go to Device, then PowerShell scripts and click Add. Push the 7SIGNAL.ps1 script out to the assigned groups.

Self-Service Installation

Login to your Mobile Eye account and click the downloads button along the left navigation bar. After downloading, double click the file to launch the Mobile Eye Setup Wizard.

The first screen of the setup wizard is the most important. You MUST enter your unique Organization ID so that your Wi-Fi performance data is directed to your instance in the cloud.

Your Organization ID is in the ‘Welcome to Mobile Eye’ email you received from 7SIGNAL Support.

After Installation

Next, you’ll want to verify that you can see the device’s Wi-Fi performance data by logging into Mobile Eye and clicking the Devices menu along the left navigation bar.

It generally takes about 5 or 10 minutes for the first data points from the client to appear. However, If you do not see the client device in the list, then click here for troubleshooting.
