Browser Instructions/Connected Mode
To get started, go to lifedesk.app in your Chrome browser.
You’ll be asked if you want to connect to a Bluetooth-enabled workstation or if you would like to use the app in Universal Mode.
- The Universal mode allows users of any sit-stand workstation to create a transition plan and set transition reminders to improve desk usage from their desktop or mobile device.
- The Bluetooth or Connected mode, when used in conjunction with a blue-tooth enabled sit-stand desk from 40 different manufacturers, allows users to directly control and monitor their desk from their desktop or mobile device, create a transition plan, establish goals and program memory settings for proper heights.
Enable Bluetooth on your computer.
Click the “Search” button to allow your computer to find your desk.
Be sure to enable Bluetooth on your device before attempting to connect. Typically the Bluetooth icon is visible on the top or bottom of your screen when the setting is turned on.
Click the Search button within the Bluetooth option to allow your device to find/discover your desk.
Pair Your Desk
After clicking “Search” you’ll be ask to pair your desk.
Click “List Nearby.”
Your browser will list available devices.
Select your desk and click “Pair.”
If multiple devices are listed, select the one with the strongest signal, represented by the one with the most bars in the icon pictured at left.
In this example, BLE device 2D0292 is our desk.
You will then need to confirm the connection.
Check your desk’s control switch and ensure the values match.
If they do not, click “No” and “Try Again.”

If your browser is set to display wider than 890 pixels, you will see the app displayed in three columns. If
it is set between 692 and 890 pixels, the app will display in two columns. And if your screen is smaller
than 692 pixels, the app will display in one column. The responsive programing of the app allows you to
customize how you want to view your screen and also allows you to keep your app open while taking up less valuable screen space.
