My company is reviewing software that can remotely admin our 100+ android devices.

Ide like to know if its possible to write our own device administrator.

From the client side, how would i set my program up as a "device administrator" (under locations and security)

Things ide like to be able to do is.

1, Silently install programs
2, Base events on SMS's
3, Silently remove programs
4, Turn on GPS (get a location, then turn off)

"Iron Mountain" is maybe the most well known program that does this type of thing. Sophos also have a product that does this.

So where can i start with this?
