  • Volume Buttons – enable this feature to stop anyone changing the device volume. If you want audio on your tablet, predetermine the volume and then enable this feature to lock it

  • Touch – enable / disable the touch functionality of the tablet

  • Motion – Turn motion off to fix the device in landscape or portrait mode. Turn on motion to enable device rotation based on orientation
